Royal Caribbean's Brilliance Of The Seas is a ship so big you could call it "Stucky", and in late January it will play host to comics creators, media stars, and hundreds of comics fans for Fan2Sea, the first ever comic convention on a cruise. Departing from Tampa, Florida, on January 29 2017, and cruising down to Cozumel in Mexico, the cruise will give comics fans a chance to mingle with Marvel and DC pros, and actors from Guardians of the Galaxy, Walking Dead, and Stranger Things, in an all-inclusive four-day cruise. It's never been done before.

ComicsAlliance spoke to Fan2Sea creative director Stefan Lawrence to discover what the cruise has to offer, how it might differ from other conventions, and why the organizers decided to hold a comic-con at sea.

Cookbooks, Craft, and Cannibalism: Natalie Riess Dishes on Space Battle Lunchtime [Interview]

caspacebattleheader

Whether it's to a Lisa Frank-ian medieval fantasy dimension or a dish-or-die intergalactic cooking competition, artist and writer Natalie Riess knows a thing or two about sending unwitting Earthlings to dangerous and dazzling new locales. Riess herself is the first person (Earthling or otherwise) to have a project greenlit through 2015's Oni Press open submissions program, where she landed Space Battle Lunchtime, an eight-issue miniseries about an Earthen pastry chef brought to compete for her life in not one, but two cooking competitions. Riess is also known for Snarlbear, her four-year-old comic about a monster slayer in the violent yet vibrant Rainbow Dimension.

ComicsAlliance sat down with Riess at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo where, minutes before the interview, she had just won the day's Iron Cartoonist competition. It turns out creating comics about cooking-themed competitions prepares you to compete in them too.

In Hannah Blumenreich's Spider-Man fan comics, Peter Parker disentangles Gilmore Girls relationships while helping Aunt May knit, falls asleep on the couch to the tune of I Love Lucy, and gushes about Cowboy Bebop while shielding a woman from street harassment. Blumenreich's Spidey Zine and other Peter Parker fan comics explore a quieter, more introspective take on the iconic character, drawn with the physicality of a realistically young, potato-esque teenager.

ComicsAlliance attended the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo and sat down with Blumenreich to discuss fan work, arachnophobia, and evil Disney lawyers.
