Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a Happy International Darwin Day! On this special day, just over 200 years ago, evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin was born, and we want to do our part to celebrate his life and his work. (PS: Abraham Lincoln was born on the same day . . . but he will have his own holiday next week. Let's give Darwin his own moment in the spotlight, shall we?)
