This week on the show we have my dear friend Barbra Dillon, editor-in-chief of Fanbase Press and my dear friend. Fanbase Press gave Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter, my first book, its first review, and I have been honored to call her and Bryant friends for years.
Fanbase Press celebrates fandoms and creates new ones! As an award-winning comic book publisher and geek culture website, Fanbase Press produces new and distinctive works, as well as daily reviews, interviews, and podcasts, that span the pop culture spectrum and give voice to the themes, ideals, and people that make geekdom so exceptional.
Here is a little about the company, which is both a member of the press AND a comics company.The company was founded in 2010 (originally under the name Fanboy Comics) by Barbra and Bryant Dillon and Sam Rhodes and rebranded to Fanbase Press in May 2016.Fanbase Press' graphic novels, including the 2018 Eisner Award-nominated Quince, the 2020 IPPY Award-winning Quince: The Definitive Bilingual Edition hardcover, the 2019 IPPY Award-winning A Geek's Guide to Cross-Stitch: Journeys in Space, the 2014 Bram Stoker Award-nominated Fearworms: Selected Poems, The Sequels, The Margins, The Gamma Gals, Something Animal, Identity Thief, The Arcs, and Penguins vs. Possums, are available online at www.fanbasepress.com.
Barbra is seriously one of the most lovely humans of all time, and she's also a fount of knowledge about a whole range of topics, including, most recently, how to run a company and have a full-time job while pregnant with twins.
