Comics preview [Thursday 11 Mar 2010 at 02:13 am]

[Tags|, ]

Note: Spoilers ahead, especially under the cut; Don't read!

Well, there's an image of Spike and a girl in some upcoming issue of a Dark Horse comic. I suspect it's a Season 8 issue from the context. I can't tell who the girl might be, but she seems to have brown hair. Maybe it's his new sweetie from L.A.

Also, they seem to have him out in the Sun if those shadows are any indication. Maybe that's a message to us that while Angel got the super powers, Spike got the Shanshoe.

Or maybe they just forgot about vampires again like that stretch of five or so issues early on of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" without a single vampire in them. Possibly it's just like issue 33 where they forgot about Angelus being a vampire and drew him in the Sun. Gosh, are they even trying anymore?

I think I might prefer to not see Spike in the character assassination that Season 8 threatens. I might have to exercise my inclination to limit myself strictly to the best corner of fandom from now on. Yes, it's the high latitude waterfowl AU world for me. Not Spuffy, but Spuffin.

Well, it can't be Kate Lockley, since she's actually wearing clothes.

Now I feel like I need to catch on the Angelus comics.

You really don't. But basically, Kate is running around in a bare midriff, kevlar bra and tights, doing high kicks against monsters, spouting cool action-hero one-liners, and generally acting 100.0% different from how she appeared on the show. The writer acknowledged that she was completely out of character, but said she preferred Kate that way.

I think it's Buffy. Remember comic!Buffy was recast...

I've been saying this for years. The question is whether I'll be able to stay away...it's like a train crash. Can't stop looking.

I..erm.. sahre your concerns. I'm sure, however that not even Spike will be enough to have me buy any issue. So take that Scott Allie :P

BUY an issue? What insanity is this? I wouldn't have a copy in my house if they *paid* me!

If Spike shows up and is done respectfully I'll consider changing my money for dollars and buying an issue.

That does look vaguely like Jeanty's Buffy.

It's like each comic comes with a free guessing game as a bonus to the ostensible story. Sometimes they even mix up the eye colors for us to make it harder.

Oh, right. Last time they recast Buffy, in Who Are You, she seemed more recognizable somehow.

I think it's Buffy too. Looks like Comics Buffy to me.

I'm telling myself that this is the new L.A. slayer that Spike is casually dating without any serious intentions while Buffy sorts out her issues and gets set to come claim him.

Definitely Buffy. But it looks like a flashback in context with the rest of the page... :(

I can't really tell any context from this. What would the explosion be in the flashback?

I think 2maggie2 pointed out that it's an image from Willow being hit with an attack from #31.
