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.

It started with the top image. An artist called Blue posted a drawing of a Black Widow and Hawkeye cover with the poses swapped. Blue then issued a challenge to other artists: replace the female characters in other comics with Hawkeye. These are just a few examples of what happened next.

Good news, everyone! Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, and one of the comics available for free contains Serenity and Star Wars stories, both written by Zack Whedon. The best part is you can read this preview of the Serenity comic right now.
