  1. As a big Buffy and Joss Whedon fan, I really, really wanted to love this and expected to be giving it five stars, but I was somewhat disappointed First, the good it s a fun and fast paced read, the art is excellent overall, and it s of course great to see these characters again Whedon s patented snappy dialog is in full effect, providing several awesome laugh out loud moments.Small things that bothered me Amy and a bizarrely resurrected Warren are not the most interesting villians likewise gener [...]

  2. Reading about Buffy after Buffy s last episode is something that I would never expect years ago Reading about Buffy season 8, written or supervised by Whedon himself is kinda dream for my inner nerd Because that nerd is pretty alive and proud As alive as Buffy Anne Summers, profesional slayer, is Everything ended like this And now it starts with a complete blast, outstanding humor and a fabulous setting Too fabulous for a tv show budget I guess, and that s one of the reasons we have the comics i [...]

  3. WrensReads Review I thought this was hilarious.For example, here is Dawn as a giant.Ummm, a few friends are back and they don t like Buffy and team up with some evil that we know nothing about besides that they are evil.The last issue was super sad and I will never read that one again.It s Buffy guys, just read it You know it s enjoyable Josh Whedon, as usual, will break your heart and mend it with the comical sarcasm that we all know and love The humor that was in the show is still in the comic [...]

  4. Part 1 of my shameless attempt to get my Reading Tracker back on track.This totally, totally counts as a book.

  5. Okay, it s been a long time since I ve watched the TV show Used to be a big fan of it YESI m a guy and I watched Buffye s a hot badass who kills vampires And it was well written This book made me remember how much I liked the show This is Season 8 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Everyone thought that Joss Whedon ended the show because he thought it was time for him to just end it But the truth is that the fans wanted , so they got this And Joss Whedon said one of the reasons he did was because he co [...]

  6. I initially scoffed at the thought of a GN continuation of the television series I ll admit that I wasn t particularly enthused by graphic novels in general, plus part of me thought this was merely a way to keep the franchise making money Having read this first one, I was pleasantly surprised although, since the script is from Whedon himself, I should have had faith The story stayed true to the feel of the TV show Buffy kicking butt while still feeling oddly detached, Xander cracking corny joke [...]

  7. I am reading this, in anticipation of this I love Buffy, like love love Buffy, and the end of season 7 was a little hard to swallow while continuing with my normal life Back then I didn t have the money to buy these for myself, but today is a new age and I am ready to get back to season 8 and beyond.Also, this I enjoyed the first 5 comics of the new and improved maybe Buffy the Vampire Slayer I do appreciate, as a long time fan, that now Joss gets to explore crazy ass routes that would have been [...]

  8. I was so excited to get into the Buffy comics having only recently discovered them I am a massive fan of the television show and couldn t wait to delve into the world of Buffy and the Scoobies again So this is the comic series that continues on where the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer leaves off I wasn t sure what to expect but I didn t get into it as much as I had hoped to I have no qualms with the delivery of the story the illustrations, format and typeface were great and I actually [...]

  9. I finally got my hands on some Buffy comics, which totally exposes my nerddom, but I can t hold it in.This collection of the first four comics of the Season 8 series are shocking and interesting, going places the television show never could while remaining true to the characters and their histories What s most surprising are the voices here, consistent with each actors portrayals, and the new mysteries created by the time gap between the episode Chosen and the first panel of the comic.I can t wa [...]

  10. i loved the tv show, still can t stop watching it i was nervous going into the comic.but i loved it, problem is now i ve read it i have to get my hands on the next one.

  11. Buffy ran for 7 seasons, became a cultural institution, a subject for college courses, and, most importantly, ended on a high note Not bad for a show on a fledgling network based on a movie that flopped.Then season 8 was released in comic form Years later, I finally get around to reading the first TPB and, it was just ok Joss Whedon wrote it, so it should be just as joyously ass kicky, pithy, and feminist as the show Instead it feels like taking a swig of Diet Coke when you expected real Coke, a [...]

  12. Unengaging graphic sequel apparently the first episodes in a notional Season 8 to the TV Series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer It misses the point the Buffy series was fantasy, sure, but it was also about the psychological development of, and the tensions within, its Scooby Gang Season 8 at least based on reading this first volume is filled with stereotypes and seems a forced attempt to drive the girl power message of the last minutes of the final show of Season 7 to ridiculous lengths Much of this c [...]

  13. 4 5 stars.I ve been putting off reading these comics for a while, but after a recent Buffy rewatch, I thought I should give the comics a go It was great to see the Scooby Gang back together, they ve all grown up so much But they still have the same humour and witty dialogue that I love so much I was lost a few times but I got the hang of things, I can t wait to pick up the rest

  14. I loved the buffy the vampire slayer television show it is still one of my favourite tv shows of all time and I didn t really like how it ended and i honestly did want one last season but was never able to get that This comic picks up after the events of the last episode of season seven, buffy and the newly made slayers are now out in full force trying to fight and survive, All the slayers are now in separate squads run by one of the group There are multiple buffy s posing as decoys while the re [...]

  15. The first Season 8 arc works a little better when you read it as a whole vs each individual issue But I still have many issues I m very glad with how the did the whole Immortal backtrack, I still think that was one of the worst episode of Angel EVER Some of the drawings of the characters don t even have a passing resemblance to the actors Andrew, Amy, Ethan, you don t even get who they are sometimes But here s the biggy Warren He can t be This has nothing to do with the ick factor of the whole h [...]

  16. 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 [...]

  17. I am a super Buffy superfan Ask me any question, I will know the answer It is my favorite television show, Buffy has been my ultimate role model since I was 11, the series and I go way back With that being said, it wasn t until 2014 that I decided to pick up the comic series, which is canon, according to the god that is Joss Whedon After reading it, it was ok I ll be reading the rest because I m interested But I did feel some of the magic that made the tv series incredible were lost in the comic [...]

  18. I m interested enough to read the next one, mostly because I m attached to the characters, but this first volume didn t super impress me Not really into Xander as some important command guy, there wasn t nearly enough Willow, and the art could be better, especially since I m trying to recognize characters based on the actors who played them in the show When Giles first showed up I couldn t tell it was him I know the art is fairly standard for comics maybe I just have high standards from reading [...]

  19. As much as I proclaim myself to be a complete Whedonite, I read this under an hour and didn t love it I thought, Whedon dialogue on page with kool illustrations Winning but no, no win for me What made the show amazing was not only the dialogue but the performances by those actors the inflections of their voices, the expressions on their faces, their hand gestures, etc I can say the dialogue was just as funny as the TV show but the comic didn t pop to me Additionally, perhaps because it was a com [...]

  20. Fans of Buffy will at least want to read this, the official continuation of the series Fortunately, they ll probably like it, too The dialog and characterization are as good as they ever were Reading this, I could easily hear the actors voices in my head, especially with Xander The setup is pretty much exactly what the series left us with instead of one Slayer, there s now hundreds, and the Scoobies are now trying to organize, train, and lead them Bonus points for Andrew s cheese tastic PSA The [...]

  21. This was really cool just like watching the show Only thing is it s been about 6 years since I last watched the whole series, so I forgot some things I probably would have enjoyed this even if I had just finished season 7 before this, with all the little details fresh in my mind Good job Joss I look forward to other volumes of Buffy D

  22. This isn t about demons at all, is it It s about women It s about power and it s about women and you just hate those two words in the same sentence, don t you Borrowed from a coworker, read in a single sitting at my desk It s been literal years since I finished Buffy the show, and I ve only seen it the once, so my memory is probably hazier than a lot of the fans reading this series But this first volume of Season Eight still did a good enough job of contextualising old villains who popped up, wh [...]

  23. Have I mentioned I m moving about six hundred times I was going through my old floppies from when I was bright eyed and excited about the return of Buffy in any form though also wary from the hot mess that Season 6 and 7 turned out to be On the plus side Jo Chen s covers are gorgeous On the minus side, the first four issues of this volume The Long Way Home show a really uneasy move from the TV format to the comic format Pacing is off, for one Whedon seems to be reveling in the infinite budget wh [...]

  24. Rating 4.5I never watched Buffy when I was younger And not because of lack of interest, but because I was not allowed to watch the show I remember begging to grow up faster for the show not to stop airing when I did But eventually Buffy ended I forgot about it.So when I heard about the graphic novel I was instantly excited to read it because it would be my chance to discover the amazingness of the fandom Firstly, in my opinion, you do NOT need to have watched the series to understand this Yes, i [...]

  25. The Long Way Home picks up where season 7 finished There is now an army of slayers and Sunnydale is now just a hole in the ground Someone is targeting Buffy Summers and the Scooby Gang need to find out whom and destroy them before they themselves are destroyed.It is clear that Joss Whedon worked on the comic books as well because all of his humor is right there The characters are EXACTLY like those from the television series, they are just as witty and the illustrations do a good job of making t [...]

  27. Joss Whedon uses comics to add a Season 8 to Buffy, and it reads just like you re watching new episodes of the show A must read for any Buffy fan.

  28. Fun continuation of the series I d like to keep reading but my library doesn t have any volumes and I m not paying 15 for something that takes me 20 minutes to read.
