SEASON EIGHT RULES!!!
So I'm sitting around this morning, hanging with the dog and thinking how much I really should be writing... and it suddenly occurs to me: how have I NOT mentioned the GENIUS that is BUFFY: SEASON EIGHT?!!!
Seriously, folks. This is one of the BEST COMIC BOOKS out there today!
If you love BUFFY as much as I do, you're probably already reading this great new series. The conceit is that the comic book picks up right where the end of the BUFFY SERIES left off. It's written and overseen by Joss himself, so these stories are canon. And they're awesome! So what's up with the Scooby Gang? I won't ruin too much, but I will reveal that 1) Dracula returns, 2) A certain skinless member of the Trio is still alive, 3) Xander has moved on from Anya only to experience more tragedy in his love life, 4) Willow... well, is still good ol' Willow, and oh, 5) Buffy has a much more open mind about her sexuality these days.
And Dawn is a GIANT.
If that's not enough to get you to start reading this awesome series...
Dark Horse is starting to reprint the entire run in trade paperbacks, so buy those if you can't find the individual issues. Now if they would only bring back Tara somehow...
