A comics-inspired TV spot for Friday's episode of Fringe.
Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and more, turned 89 years old today. Lee first broke into comics in 1939 after graduating high school at age 16. His uncle helped him become an assistant at Timely Comics, which would later become Marvel. His first writing to appear in a comic book was a text filler page in "Captain America" issue #3. Since then he has helped create numerous beloved characters, helped reform the Comics Code, and challenged conventional ideas of what a superhero could be. Happy birthday, Stan. Excelsior!
As you know, May the Fourth isn't the only holiday this weekend. Free Comic Book Day is tomorrow. Earlier this week, we got a preview of a free Firefly comic. Now, we have a panel from tomorrow's Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic where she appears to be up against a xenomorph.
