Greetings, Fanboy Comics readers!
The staff of Fanboy Comics and I would like to wish our favorite blonde vampire slayer, Buffy Summers, a Happy 35th Birthday! Even though her birthdays tend to end in disaster (i.e., boyfriend loses his soul, loss of super powers, etc.), we thought it was only appropriate to be there for the Chosen One on her special day and to help her blow out the candles . . . or decapitate demons - whatever it takes! Happy Birthday, Ms. Summers, and thanks for saving the world . . . a lot!
