Comics are wonderful, visual ways of getting a story across, and it goes without saying that we at The Mary Sue love them. But as wonderful as they are, grabbing issue after issue can add up. And yet the desire for more comics persists. Luckily there are plenty of creative, engaging, funny, complexâand free!âstories and gag strips out there for those of us who need our dose of sequential art. You just have to know where to look. Enter the Internet.
Wolverine and Captain Marvel arguing about Astronauts vs. Cavemen. Best. Whedon Reference. EVER.

I love this episode. It’s equal parts creepy and absolutely hysterical.
So, this was the first episode of Buffy that I ever saw. Prior to that, I’d only seen the bits and pieces I needed to view in order to make fun of the show. I know - bad me.
I’d gone home sick and fell asleep on the couch watching whatever station was playing whatever show they were playing before they played repeats of Buffy. (Whew. That’s a tough sentence, eh?).
I woke up to a Gentleman floated by Giles’s kitchen window and I started freaking my shit over it. That face? The one that’s all pale and boney? The teeth that are jagged and take up just way too much mouth space? I’d seen all of it before …
When i was little, my brother read Stephen King’s short story the Bogeyman to me. The face that appeared in my nightmares for years after was suddenly on my television.
And that made me keep watching. And watching. And watching.
And that’s how I fell in love with Buffy - still my most favorite show ever.
