Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:
As big fans of all things Hunger Games, the FBC staff wanted to inform you about the latest news from The Katniss Chronicles, an unofficial and unauthorized audio drama based on Suzanne Collins' bestselling book series. The 17-episode audio drama can be found at www.thekatnisschronicles.com, and all episodes are available for online listening and free download.
Be sure to check out the below press release from The Katniss Chronicles' creators regarding their upcoming excitement for the series.
The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish our favorite blonde vampire slayer, Buffy Summers, a Happy Birthday! Even though her birthdays tend to end in disaster (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!
Are you a fan of the Buffster? Do you consider yourself a rouge demon hunter? Well, make sure to check out FBC’s Buffy-inspired podcast, The Scoobies and the Newbie, as well as FBC President Bryant Dillon’s regular Buffy comic reviews available at Whedonopolis!
