The MySpace based freebie Dark Horse Presents has a short Buffy the Vampire Slayer story up, written by Joss Whedon and with art by the wonderful Jo Chen.

And it's full of crack. And slash.

I'm not sure this counts as particularly slashy or crowd pleasing since absolutely nothing happens on panel. It's weird that the real James Marsters is quite happy to play tonsil hockey with another bloke in Torchwood, but they felt the need to make his comic likeness fool around off screen, so to speak.

I totally saw those scans! Totally awesome! But why is it that Steve and Tony can be together in a world where it would be a heterosexual relationship, but not in 616, where it wouldn't be? It seems silly to me. Steve is still Steve and Tony is still Tony, just female and spelling Tony as Toni. I know there's no evidence to suggest specifically that either has been in a relationship with a man before in 616, but they're so perfect for each other that you'd think they'd be the one exception for each other. If I'm making any sense at all... whoever is reading this is extremely impressive and deserves a round of applause.

Because they are manly men who do not put their penises in other men. IE, massive degrees of homophobia from the corporate masters and the fanboys, not to mention that you'd get the inevitable pederasty corrolary (OMG, if Steve's dicking Tony, that means he must have abused the underage Bucky!).

Steve/Tony makes perfect sense, because after all America's been in bed with the Military/Industrial complex for ages...

But yes, Steve/Tony works in the same way that you can buy either Dick or Dinah as Bab's exception, depending on which way you have her, um, roll (or Mystique/Destiny for another Marvel example; I don't think Raven's ever been shown to be with another woman apart from Irene, as all her other canon relationships have been with men -- Sabertooth, Wolverine, Forge, Azrael if you accept that crap).

This line. It is spectacular. *mind boggles*
