Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers — newly legion — have gotten organized and are kicking some serious undead butt. But not everything's fun and firearms, as an old enemy reappears and Dawn experiences some serious growing pains. Meanwhile, one of the "Buffy" decoy slayers is going through major pain of her own.

Buffy creator Joss Whedon brings Buffy back to Dark Horse in this direct follow-up to season seven of the smash-hit TV series. The bestselling and critically acclaimed issues #1–5 are collected here for the first time, as are their covers by Jo Chen and Georges Jeanty.

Review:

"The newest incarnation of the Buffy comic, written by series creator Whedon, is effectively the new season of the TV series. It plunges right into the show's dense cosmology and doesn't bother to explain anything to neophytes. Regulars will love it, however. 'The Long Way Home' establishes the season 8 status quo: demon-killing heroine Buffy Summers is now commanding an army of hundreds of Slayers (and her little sister, Dawn, has been turned into a giant by Whedon's favorite transformative force, sex). Still, there's some creepy unfinished business from the TV show to deal with, and the U.S. Army is coming after her, too. A shorter story, 'The Chain,' concerns the bittersweet, truncated life of a Buffy look-alike sent underground as a decoy for the forces of evil. Jeanty, Owens and Lee's artwork, understandably, is in a very straightforward mainstream-comics style — the characters look as much as possible like the TV actors — although they manage a few interpretive flourishes, like a Cubist witch seen by one character in a fantasy sequence. The real draw, of course, is Whedon's writing. His dialogue is as snappy as ever, and his plots are hypercompressed and telegraphic." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"One of the top twenty events of 2007." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"It already looks like...the start of the three hundred million-dollar Buffy movie you crave in your heart." Ain't It Cool News

Review:

"Action-packed and overflowing with Whedon's patented snappy patter." Wizard Magazine

Review:

"Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, as is faboo as the writing." Janet Evanovich, New York Times bestselling author of Hard Eight

Synopsis:

Worldwide cult phenomenon Buffy the Vampire Slayer returns with Season Eight — only in comics!

Series creator Joss Whedon once again takes up writing duties for this official sequel to the show, running the comics as he ran seven seasons of Buffy on TV. This opening story introduces a mysterious threat known as "Twilight" and plunges Buffy and the gang into their biggest adventure — without the limitations of a small-screen budget.

Buffy is back! She's running a high tech, high adrenaline, high speed demon-killing operation. She has all of the Scooby gang helping (the alive ones anyway) plus almost 2 thousand new slayers. They think they can take any big bad that heads their way. But when they stumble into a strange cult with military support they may be over their heads.

Not a big fan of comics, but this was pretty good. Dead on slayer slang and a fast paced plot made this a definite step up from other Buffy spin-off comics I have tried. The art is way better then others as well. Coloring is great and has the right feel for the show. Much more detailed drawing and better panel layout makes it seem more professional and as if it was a real labor of love rather then a "Let's throw together this little comic in a week so Buffy fans will waste money on something that seems like it has something to do with the show! *Evil laugh*"
