Dark Horse releases new preview panels of Spike's appearance in issue 34 [Monday 15 Mar 2010 at 02:31 am]

Finally Dark Horse has released the preview pages for issue 34 where Twangle is explained and Spike finally shows up. Scott Allie said in an interview this week that the photo of his desk had to have some really spoilery panels covered before he could release it, ones that were much more spoiler-ful than the Spike flashback panel. Boy was he serious!

Allie also promised us that Spike and Buffy would be treated with respect and I guess they are, in a sense. The really surprising thing is that we get more detail on the Spike/Buffy relationship than we expected. They actually get a chance to talk about their relationship and how they really feel now that Buffy finds out he's still undead.

Also there's a new artist on the comic. Thanks to Dark Horse for hiring Anne-Lise and Fox to add detail and realism to the artwork.

As I grew up in the Western Hemisphere (the bestern hemisphere!) I'm not sure what that means, but I bet you're right.

I suppose it's about catharsis as well as fun, though. I really am afraid of what Joss is planning for us who love Buffy and Spike. There is some hope it might not be quite as bad as this.

Aren't we all afraid of what Joss will do next to our Buffy and Spike? He hasn't exactly been careful with them so far.

... I wish I could un-see Willow.

Still, much cheered! :)

That's actually Evil Vampire Willow ('Eve' to her friends) in the cartoon, not 'our' Willow. ;-)

The evil one has purple eyes to clue you in on the difference.

Yup. As I recall, "our" Willow is busy, ahem, "fixing" the Buffybot.

And Angel, strangely enough, is taking care of Connor.

I thought he was chained up in Buffy's closet, alongside Faith? :-)

Wasn't that before Buffy died and Eve dug up her corpse?

"That'll learn ya. You can't unsee what you see" -Comics Xander

I have a lingering fear Joss's final version may be worse.

Well Spike won't die, because Spike is still commercially viable...

(Also *my* Buffy - that is, canon!Buffy - went to Rome and dated The Immortal. ♥)

Why can't I type? *headdesk*

That's the real canon, but can I summon the energy to finish my TGIQ FITB after the comics nuked the premise? No, I haven't.

I have written... ::runs off to check:: nearly 100,000 words about Buffy & The Immortal. And it's partly because of this that the comics feel so totally ridiculous.

That is exactly what I am implicitly complaining about.
