    Last week Dark Horse Comics released Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 by Joss Whedon. It's a direct continuation of the TV show and dubbed "season 8" by Whedon himself. I just thought to bring this up because I don't think the book got a lot of press or attention outside of comic book news sites.

    I am definitely interested in the book. I thought Buffy had a great ending but I suppose getting a little bit more can't be bad.

    Bah, Buffy ran it's course. Angel had far more potential.

    Are you sure? It wasn't on any of the shipping list last week and Dark Horse has it solicited for March 7. Newsarama just posted an advance review of it, stating that it'll be out in March as well.

    I'm undecided still. Buffy did have a great ending, but it was at the end of season 5. The last two years were largely crap, and I'm not sure I care to know what happened next.

    I think I'm gonna have to wait for trades. I still haven't see most of the Buffy TV series and just recently started going through Angel. I'd like to check it out eventually though.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #1 has been pushed back to March 14 (just a week... so far)

    Also there's are two contests going on from Dark Horse for US residents:
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Contest at Dark Horse
    Buffy Is My Life Essay Contest at MySpace

    Other Buffy news:
    In yesterdays A&E section in the Toronto Star, there was an article on Buffy entitled Why Buffy still slays us and The Slayer's Legacy (PDF file).

    Also, just a reminder, March 10th will be the 10th anniversary of the 1st episode of Buffy.

    Eh? You'll have to shpeak up sonny. I don't hear so good in my old age.


    My girlfriend is actually looking forward to this more than me. Hell, she's the one who told me about it. I told her it was coming out next week...guess she'll have to wait another.

    I definitely wish they continued Angel's storyline from the TV show. But I'll probably be getting Buffy too.

    Angel outstripped Buffy in every way towards the end of their respective shows; in fact, Angel just plain outstripped Buffy in every way since its first episode. it had theperfect blend of action, humour, tragedy, horror and tension. Add to that exceptionally good characterisation and razor sharp scripts (2 things that the last season of Buffy was sorely lacking in), and excellent performances, and you end up with a show that makes Buffy look positively tepid by comparison.
    I'll be giving anything to do with Buffy a miss, after the gargantuan letdown that was the series' ending.

    I liked Buffy when it was about the older guy trying to chat up a woman over coffee, but it went down the pan when they introduced all those kids and vampires.

    For the most part, I absolutely loved it. Which made the pathetically lame ending all the more disappointing.
