Fixer To Return January 4th

After a nearly 2 year hiatus, Fixer, Tainted Reality’s dramatic webcomic about a rock band inspired by visual kei in the late 90’s, will be making its triumphant return January 4th, 2015. Joining the creative time is former Leetstreet Boys artist, Erin Nagy, who will be adding her own unique, anime inspired touch to the world of Fixer as the new lead artist! The upcoming story arc will see the newly solidified band try to get signed by a major label as they work their way up the unforgiving and brutal independent rock scene of Philadelphia. With a brand new release schedule and creative drive, the new series promises to present readers a realistic and historic depiction of the rock scene in Philadelphia, and an emotional and deeply personal character driven story that shows how difficult it really is to get signed and will be certain to move some readers to tears.

More information about the return of Fixer will be announced in the coming weeks. For further information, or how to get caught up on the first 13 chapters for free, please visit Fixer’s Official Website.

-How Close Are Nana, Gravitation, and Beck To The Real Thing panel where we analyze how close these anime dramas are to the real life rock and roll business! This panel starts at 11am on Sunday, October 5th in Panel 2 (Washington 1).
-Filming our next cosplay video for YouTube! If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Roger at roger@taintedreality.net! If you would like to see what the video will look like, check out our Otakon cosplay video below.

Lastly, Roger will also be joining DJs Mighty Mike Saga, Xircon Zircon, Nikolai, & Virtek for Ladie Eve’s Friday and Saturday night raves! The first night, Roger will be spinning hard blasting beats as it will be a Halloween themed “Monster” rave! The second night, be prepared for more melodic, dream like tracks as the DJs delve into the theme of “Victorian”. The Friday night rave begins at 11pm and the Saturday night rave begins at 12:30am.

Anime USA is October 3-5 at the Washington Marriot Wardman in Washington DC.  Register for the convention TODAY at their official website!
