SDCC 2014: The 2nd Annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero Panel Coverage The Fanboy Comics crew attended San Diego Comic-Con's 2nd annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero: Bringing a Comics Book to Life panel, which involved leading Hollywood composers discussing the creation of the musical voice behind the hero, explaining the challenges when bringing a comic book character or story to life, and writing music to reflect the storyline. From the rising score of Marvel Studios' recent comic book films to the impactful and emotional music underlying the episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the recent sci-fi epic Edge of Tomorrow, music often acts as a character in its own right to bring our favorite superhero properties to life on the big and small screens.

SDCC 2014: ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ Panel Coverage At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, the Fanboy Comics crew attended the panel for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a franchise that has spanned literature, comics, film and television, board games, and widely popular video games. The panel featured actor Doug Cockle (Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher franchise), Dark Horse Comics author Paul Tobin (The Witcher House of Glass), Nick McWhorter, CD Projekt RED's game developers Damien Monnier and Lukasz Wnek (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), Rafal Jaki, and was moderated by SpikeTV's Geoff Keighley.  Providing a sneak preview of the new Dark Horse publications and the first-ever live consumer demo of the upcoming video game, the panel gave excited attendees the chance to experience the new adventures that lie ahead for the franchise.
‘Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth:’ Advance Book Review Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth is rather different in style and tone from much of Andrez Bergen’s previous body of work. Even so, though, there’s a distinct flavor to it that, if you’re familiar with Bergen’s writing, is unmistakable. His influences and his passions always stand out, from elements of noir to classic films and comic books to music, and more. As I’ve remarked before, this tendency to wear his passions on his sleeve is part of what makes Bergen’s work so much fun to read.
‘Transformers: Windblade #4’ – Advance Comic Book Review The first three issues of the hit IDW Transformers series, Windblade, set up a tale of political struggles, terrorist violence, and a struggle to survive. The final volume goes one step further and forces the young title character to deal with personal betrayal and a decision that affects all Transformers, not just the ones on Cybertron. The twists and turns are heart wrenching, but, ultimately, Windblade gets a chance to grow and mature, which leaves hope for her further adventures.
