This has got to be one of my favorite comics ever for depicting how the mind works. In it, there’s a story where Glenn comes across his neighbors staring at the moon in the street; they think the end times have come. But Glenn actually knows how moons work and then spends the next ten pages talking about parallax and horizon lines and gets so distracted by how cool science is that the people scared of the apocalypse don’t even fit on the page anymore! And then when they come back, you find that they too have been overcome by science and just say, ‘Oh,’ and go home, knowing they are not shortly going to be dead (well, by apocalypse-means, anyways).

I find this to be excellent.
