Dear Fanboy Comic Readers,
If you’re a fan of Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then the chances are good that you’ve read a story by the award-winning writer, Nancy Holder. Holder’s ties to the Buffy-verse are as strong as a certain Hell Goddess, and her list of contributions to the Slayer’s extended universe are as prolific as the Watchers' Diaries themselves. Having written over fifteen novels taking place in Whedon’s vampire and demon-infested world, Holder is truly a proven member of the Scooby gang.
The FBC staff was overjoyed to hear that Holder was interested in writing a piece for our uber-geeky website! With the upcoming release of her masterpiece, Buffy: The Making of a Slayer (a book that no Buffy collection will be complete without), this blessing was clearly a sign from The Powers That Be, and it is with great honor that we welcome Holder to our corner of Geekdom.
WINNER ANNOUNCED BELOW!

It’s not even his name, but a simple governmental position, and still the utterance of The Governor chills the blood of any fan of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor and The Walking Dead: Road to Woodbury are the first two parts of a trilogy that reveals the mysterious and twisted origin of The Governor and his savage safe haven of Woodbury.
