This series of comics just started coming out and takes place after Buffy the show ended. So Sunnydale has been destroyed and then what? I read parts I and II a couple weeks ago and just picked up III today. It’s immensely satisfying to basically have the show continuing-written by Joss so it’s ok in this Buffy fan’s book. However, because they are serialized comics you can read each installment in 5 to 10 minutes and are left with a cliffhanger. Argh! So this one continued along–you definitely need to read in order and let’s hope they publish a paperback bound of all the issues so you can just read it as one big graphic novel-with Willow coming in to battle Amy. Alas, she gets captured by whoever has hired Amy. And who is that? Well the final page is a revolting skinless creature bent on getting Willow. I’m thinking it’s whats-his-name. Jonathan. I guess I’ll find out in a month! As far as the other Buffy characters go, I really like how Xander is portrayed. Matured, one eyed, but still funny and smart-assy. He really does seem as I would imagine him to be one year after the Sunnydale destruction. Dawn on the other hand? Well, I still wish she hadn’t survived. Another pleasant visitor from Sunnydale’s past would be Ethan Raynes! He pops up in a brief appearance in Buffy’s dreamworld. Dreamworlds and magical fighting action sequences are a bit difficult for me to follow in the comic format-it’s not always clear what’s going on-, but all in all I highly recommend these.
