‘Justice League: Gods and Monsters:’ Film Review (Not Your Daddy’s Justice League) Dark, alternate universes are nothing new to the comic book genre, but there does always seem to be something exciting about a new, dark, alternate universe featuring your favorite superheroes. That type of Elseworlds thrill is exactly what Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) and the rest of the cast and crew have crafted with the latest DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Justice League: Gods and Monsters. Featuring an impressively talented cast and completely new takes on the iconic characters of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and many others, Gods and Monsters continues the “winning streak” of quality superhero stories that DC Animated seems destined to deliver.
Geeks Care: How You Can Help the National MS Society and Team ‘Hit the Floor’ When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.


For fans of the VH1 show, Hit the Floor, many were excited to see the recently released teaser trailer for Season 3, which will launch in 2016.  Many fans may not know, though, that Hit the Floor's Devil Girl Dancer, Courtney Galiano, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. It affects people in the prime of their lives, between the ages of 20 and 50, and there is currently no cure.  Instead of letting it get her down, Courtney is fighting back with the help of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Team Hit the Floor.  By forming Team Hit the Floor, Courtney, her friends, and her supporters hope to mobilize people and resources to raise money to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS, and they hope that you'll join them to become a part of the solution!
The ‘PREVIEWS’ Party Interviews Russell Brettholtz and Miguel Mendonça of ‘Side-Kicked’ Side-Kicked is a new trade paperback coming out in October from Darby Pop Publishing. Created by Russell Brettholtz and Miguel Mendonça (and with art by Mendonça and Bong Dazo), it tells the story of a world where the only thing worse than a super-villain is an egomaniacal superhero. It is the responsibility of the under-paid, under-appreciated sidekicks to both make their partners look good and keep common citizens out of danger. But, what happens when the sidekicks decide that they’ve had enough?

To learn more about this cool, new book, we went straight to the source and interviewed the creators of Side-Kicked.
