Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

The goblins and ghouls at FBC would like to wish you and yours a Happy Halloween!  Today is a day to showcase our cosplay love, carve pumpkins, eat far too much candy, draw Pagan symbols on the floor and then accidentally spray human blood on them, therby unleashing Gachnar who terrorizes the students of UC Sunnydale . . . I mean . . . you know, the regular Halloween things that you do . . .

While all of the aforementioned activities make today tremendously fun, it is just not Halloween without remembering one thing: "Anything Can Happen on Halloween."
