Fandemonium Press Release

“Fandemonium made me angry. This is because it came as a surprise. I don’t like surprises. The surprise was that a book about comic geeks and comics culture could be so well-written, so engaging, and so much damn fun. Stop this man before he writes again. I hate surprises!”

Ted Rall, award-winning editorial cartoonist and graphic novelist

“If there were a medal for best book about the comics industry, FANDEMONIUM would be the hands-down winner. This book captures that world with a wry humor and brings out the wackiness of its characters on both sides of the page.”

— Jim Barnes, Editor and Awards Director,

“I’m really worried I won’t be able to convey to you just how much I enjoyed this book; so much so that I felt an odd sense of loss once it was over. Fandemonium is a 400-page tome, and I can safely say I would happily read another 400; then 400 after that. I loved it.”

— Book Odyssey

“The book is densely plotted, with oddball characters popping out of its seams, featuring both laugh-out loud moments, and truly poignant scenes … This is highly recommended reading. Enjoy!”

— Weird and Wonderful Reads

“In a single bound, Rick Schindler has created a fizzing comic romp, a satire on the cynical commercial imperatives of big business and a love letter to comic books.”

Jon Gower, Movie Reviewer, Total TV Guide

“I think fans of comic books will REALLY enjoy this book… You do not need to read comic books to appreciate the universe that Rick Schindler creates and the look at the industry. So, go check it out.”

— Amy Jean Tomaso, The Taylor Network

“FANDEMONIUM is a fun satire of comic book geekdom, ruthless business chicanery, and show-biz spin-doctoring smarm mongers. Rick Schindler and Wattle Publishing did it right, put in lotsa chuckles, plenty o’ winces & larfs glore. #amreading and you should too.”

People send me stuff to review from time to time but it’s usually not worth a mention. Fandemonium, however, I devoured in three days… It’s everyone’s first convention experience magnified.”
