Join us this Saturday July 6 at 7 pm Eastern / 4 pm Pacific as we welcome Bryant Dillon of Fanbase Press to the guest’s chair on’s THE EVENT HORIZON. The topic of the evening will be Fanbase Press’s very first Kickstarter, a push to get their already released graphic novel Ripple Effects, by Jordan Hart and Bruno Chiroleu, rereleased as a hardcover.

Jordan Hart’s critically acclaimed graphic novel, Ripple Effects, has been nominated for the biggest awards in comics and now, on the eve of its 15th anniversary, GLAAD Media Award-winning publisher Fanbase Press will launch the company’s first-ever Kickstarter campaign to fund an expanded deluxe hardcover edition of the book, featuring all-new contributions from some of the biggest names in comics. Ripple Effects follows the adventures of a superhero whose invincibility is offset by an acute case of type 1 diabetes and a defective pancreas that must be monitored and treated daily. The gripping and inspirational story about living with an invisible illness is inspired by writer Jordan Hart’s own lived experience with thrombophilia, an incurable blood-clotting disease.
