I was a late convert to Buffy--Season 7 to be exact. My ex LOVED the series, and initially I scoffed. But with his help, and armed with previous seasons on DVD, I too fell in love with these wonderful characters.

This trade paperback collects the first several issues of the newly-sanctioned, Joss Whedon-written and approved "Season 8" comic book. Whedon's trademark gift for gab is delightfully present, as were most of my favorite characters. His Buffy, Xander, and Willow are spot-on. So much so, that as I read what they were saying, I could hear their respective actors' voices saying the words.

However, the overarching story was merely "okay" in my opinion. I guess I'm trained to want more of a resolution/explanation of why/how the two "big bads" were here. But I have to remember that this monthly comic series is still ongoing, so "patience, grasshopper" must be practiced.
