Following the first trailer the other week, a new poster is out for Netflix’s upcoming “Castlevania” animated series. Japanese video game magazine Famitsu premiered the artwork which hearkens back to the classic NES artwork of the game.

The animated series is from Frederator Studios and is executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar. It is slated to premiere July 7th.
I’ll be honest; I hate filtering. I hate that there is so much crap my kids can be exposed to that I HAVE to filter, 24/7 on every single form of media just to make sure we stay within the realm of age-appropriate content. It’s frustrating. Exhausting. It’s flat out annoying. It’s annoying for ANY parent, but I think it’s especially so for a geek mom. Even more so when you are fairly conservative in your line of thinking when it comes to what you will allow your children to experience. When you are adamant about timing of exposure to certain stories, behaviors and experiences, it can make momming pretty challenging when all you really want to do is immerse yourself, and your family, deep within the four color well of never ending awesome. Now, I know plenty of geek moms who don’t think twice about it, let their kids watch whatever and their children are perfectly well behaved, well adjusted humans with good attitudes, so what am I so worried about??
FXX, home of acclaimed pitch black comedic spy comedy “Archer,” is set to get a high profile new title – a currently untitled animated series based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool.
“Atlanta” creators/executive producers Donald Glover and Stephen Glover will spearhead the new series as showrunners, executive producers, and writers. Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also serving as executive producers.
In a statement, Jeph Loeb says: “How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth! We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with Legion continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”
FXX has ordered a ten-episode first season to debut in 2018.Source: FXX

SQUID-HEADED TITAN RAMPAGES ACROSS A SCORCHED LAND
A MAN CALLED KRAKEN NOW AVAILABLE
The Savage and bizarre adventures of Kraken. Half flesh and blood! Half god-thing! All man! Join the vicious meta-hooligan as he wanders the broken back of blasted world in search of the one fella who can set things right. The 58 page, wide-format, full color graphic novel is now available!
Fifty years after the ULTRA WARS wiped out all but the most resilient hypersapians, only the most powerful and resolute survived. Among those, only the most brutal and cunning would lay claim to a funereal world without sunshine or love, a world of demi-gods and Acheronian super-thugs. And among these, none were more tenacious, more danger some, or more savage than a MAN CALLED KRAKEN!
This weird, sci-fantasy tale was created by Sean Belcher (writer) and Joey LaBartunek (artist), and can- maybe- described as somewhere between HP Lovecraft, Master’s of the Universe, and Conan the Barbarian. But that just scratches the surface of a story that is pure visual dynamite guaranteed to blow your eyes balls out of your head and send them bouncing around the room like a little rubber ball filled with nitroglycerin, exploding everything they hit!

Subject 242 answers the dreaded question “How do you kill an immortal man?”.
From the deeply demented mind of writer AJ Herrera and featuring the creepy art of Daniel Whitfield, Subject 242 was a project created during the 24 hr Comics Day. Both creators were locked inside a comic book store for 24 hours and challenged to write, draw and complete a full 24 page comic book. Here is the finished book.
This book is 24 black and white pages with full color covers and is available wherever Forbidden Panel Comics are sold. It is filled with violent images and not recommended for children.
Please visit www.forbiddenpanel.com for more information.

Everyone always says that they don’t have enough time. Or that it is hard to set aside time to create, write, or draw. Well, we are giving you that time. You don’t have to stay all 24 hrs. Hell you don’t even have to come. But if you are tired of trying to find the time to do the things you want to do then come on down and use this as an excuse. Continue reading
Convention season is in full swing and Forbidden Panel is right where we want to be: right in the middle of it! We received a wonderful response from old and new fans welcoming us back to Wonder Con in Anaheim this year. AJ Herrera and crew introduced several new books, as well as creating a new fan base for our existing titles.
On Friday night after a full first day at the convention, we had our annual Wonder Con company dinner. The food was terrific and the company was even better. Our friends and family showed up to hang out, talk about the day, and make plans for the rest of the weekend.
There were many highlights to the first convention of the season that included Forbidden Panel. These included admiring the many, amazing cosplayers wandering around the convention center, meeting and sharing our books with popular celebrities, and for me (Andrea), it was attending the Lucifer Panel on Sunday.
April was a busy month for us that also included our 24-hour Create Something Day. “Create Something Day” has become a way for members of Forbidden Panel, as well as other artists and creators, to come together and work on their projects over a 24-hour period. It’s a fun a way to finish projects, visit with like minded individuals and at times catch up on your favorite movies. Check our Facebook page for the next one!
Stay tuned for our coming events, as May is going to be another exciting month for us. We can’t wait to share it with all of you!
