Review: Buffy Season 9 #14

Buffy is taking a break this month, still reveling in her issue-ending proclamation that she’s the Slayer.  Buffy Season 9 Issue 14 instead ushers in the much buzzed about Billy (vampire slayer).  The creative team of Andrew Chambliss and Georges Jeanty [...]

Review: Buffy Season 9 #13

There are some times where I’m not willing to suspend disbelief, where I want my SciFi a bit more Sci, a bit less Fi.  I want a kind of logic to my fandoms – regardless of how convoluted that logic [...]

Angel & Faith Morris Cover

Review: Angel & Faith Issue 13

It’s getting difficult to talk about one of the Dark Horse Buffy-verse books without talking about all of them – while there aren’t any major crossovers in the works for this season of comics, there are plenty of blurred boundaries [...]

I make no secret about my love for all things Dark Horse, particularly the Whedonverse, particularly ​Buffy Season 9​.  Part of that love comes from the art of Georges Jeanty, who talked this afternoon about ​Buffy​, ​Angel & Faith​, his [...]

Spike Frisson Cover

Review: Spike #1

Here’s the thing –  I love Spike.  If I deny the existence of Seeing Red, he stays in a constant struggle for top placing on my “Favorite Vampires With Souls” list.  And, depending on the week, he even occasionally shoves [...]

Buffy Season 9 Issue 12 Jeanty Cover

Review: Buffy Season 9 #12

I’ve already whined in my Angel & Faith review about the lack of a crossover in the Dark Horse Buffyverse this month and, really, I’m over the angst now. Well, mostly. Nearly, at least. Noting like an action-packed issue for [...]

Angel and Faith 12

Review: Angel & Faith Issue 12

Admittedly, I let my fangirlish glee get away from me last month.  The momentum built by both Angel & Faith and Buffy Season 9 tricked me into thinking happy, crossover thoughts and I imagined that Issue 12 of both books [...]

Buffy Season 9 #10 saw Buffy reunited with her actual body, freed from her barista day job and ready to take on the world yet again.  Issue 11 has her taking on the world, sure, but as a part of [...]

Review: Angel & Faith: Live Through This

Angel returning to Dark Horse, in a series with Faith that takes place in the same universe as Buffy Season 9?  Written by Christos Gage and drawn by Rebekah Isaacs?  My nerdy squealing when this series started was loud and [...]

Buffy Season Nine - Issue 10

Review: Buffy Season 9 Issue 10

It probably says more about my psychology than the strength of the character, but I love that moment when Buffy seems completely broken, left to face down insurmountable odds alone and just a little bit afraid.  Think about the library [...]
