Fanbase Press Reimagines ’80s Nostalgia with The Sequels

Fanbase Press has announced the newest addition to its publishing slate with The Sequels, a four-issue, creator-owned comic book series written by Norm Harper illustrated by Val Halvorson and Harvey Award-nominated Bobby Timony, colored/flatted by Deanna Poppe, lettered by Oceano Ransford, and featuring cover art by Don Aguillo.

In the height of 1980s nostalgia, The Sequels questions whether our grasp on the past is endangering our future:

Remember the ‘80s? Avery, Gwen, Russell, and Dakota will never forget.  As children, they each experienced unique adventures . . . saving the life of a sentient robot, partying with an intergalactic alien, battling the likes of vampires and werewolves, and defeating a nightmarish monster to protect imagination itself.  Now, 30 years later, they’re directionless adults, still obsessed with their pasts. When a mysterious figure brings the group together to cope with their experiences, will they be prepared to live out the “sequels” to their childhood adventures?

The series juxtaposes its modern-day characters with their ‘80s selves, as depicted by artists Halvorson and Timony, respectively.

Issues #1-4 of the comic book series will be released digitally through ComiXology starting in February 2019. In addition, the series will be collected into a printed trade paperback that will be released in July 2019The Sequels trade paperback is currently available for pre-order through the Fanbase Press website. Pre-orders made by May 1, 2019, will receive an exclusive set of prints (representing each of the four covers) illustrated by Don Aguillo and signed by the entire creative team.
