"Wu-tang Fang" is the first issue of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series, which is part of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer meta-series.


After getting beaten up by some vampires and watching Blood Fist Warriors of the Harvest Moon, Xander decides to take up martial arts. He joins a local Kung Fu school, but the instructor is disdainful, calls him "candy-boy", and regularly roughs him up. Meanwhile, (and completely coincidentally), Lloyd Modano, the Sunnydale High "Karate Champion" is found murdered. Research by the Scoobies points to a legendary vampire Kung Fu master named San Sui, who travels the globe looking to challenge other martial artists in duels to the death. During one of Xander's Kung Fu classes, San Sui attacks and kills his Sensei; fortunately, Buffy appears on the scene just in time and holds San Sui off long enough for Xander to plunge a stake in the vampire's back. Buffy and Xander agree that, in the future, she'll do the fighting and he'll do the punning.


The events took place after "Dead Man's Party", but before "Faith, Hope & Trick".

  • Xander reminded Buffy that she had previously gotten into trouble by skipping training to go to a frat party.[1]
