Being an indie comic creator is a tough path; getting your product created and distributed to readers requires a lot of leg work, often crowdfunding campaigns, and TONS of self-promotion. When small press can get their creations into national media it’s a gift beyond belief, which is why Fanboy Comics is so excited about their upcoming feature in some CBS shows along with other smaller creators.
FBC managing editor Barbra J. Dillon (@barbrajdillon) produced the following press release:
LOS ANGELES, CA – October 20, 2014 – As new and returning television shows premiere their new seasons this Fall, Fanboy Comics is excited to announce that it will make its first appearance on the small screen in CBS’ The Millers and Hawaii Five-O, along with fellow indie creators The Yuan Twins (Arrested Development, Declan and Chang: Sweet F.A.) and Jared Sams (Spaceman Dead)!
Having first captured the attention of CBS through the epic comic book series, Penguins vs. Possums (by creative team Sebastian Kadlecik, John Bring, and Lindsay Calhoon Bring), Fanboy Comics was provided with the opportunity to highlight the series, as well as its other titles, through both The Millers and then later Hawaii Five-O. Bringing indie comic books to the mainstream, Fanboy Comics’ graphic novels, t-shirts, posters, Penguins vs. Possums figurines and prints, and more will decorate the set of The Millers: Episode 2, which will air on Monday, October 27, 2014, at 8:30 p.m./EST. In addition, comic book creators, retailers, and actors The Yuan Twins will co-star in the episode as a pair of nerdy twins attending a comic book convention. Adding more indie into the mix, the Yuans will be donning Spaceman Dead t-shirts, the comic book series created by LA-area writer/artist Jared Sams.
In addition, Fanboy Comics’ graphic novels and products will also be decorating the set for Hawaii Five-O: Episode 6, which will air on Friday, October 31, 2014, at 9 p.m./EST.
Be sure to mark your calendars, set your DVRs to record, and join us in tuning in to The Millers and Hawaii Five-O next week to see indie creators uniting on the small screen!
