Buffy S8: the graphic novel/comic bk series; SPOILERS! :) SPOILERS!! SPOILERS!!!

SPOILERS!






















Ok, so... I was just wondering if other people have read this, what their feelings are about it, etc. I was a few days late on it but didn't see a thread here & sort of thought it merited one. I'm not really a graphic novel person, there's a lot about the format I don't get. But I have to say I was pretty interested to read

YES! ANOTHER SPOILER WARNING!
















on the most recent AfterEllen that Buffy slept with another slayer--Satsu (female).

http://www.afterellen.com/blwe/03-07-08

REALLY FINAL SPOILER WARNING: (which is 4 more than AfterEllen gave) the AE article shows ALL the relevant panels. Okay? Okay. :)


Beyond thinking, oh god, poor Faith, I hope she's out of the country when she gets wind of this... it's getting a lot of coverage. Like: the New York Times had an article about it. Serious. (Experimenting in Bed When Not After Vampires, George Gustines, March 5, 2008):

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/05/books/05...r=1&oref=slogin

Interview with Whedon here (Joss Whedon: Buffy #12 and the Whole Series, Matt Brady, 3.6.8):

http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=149216

ABC coverage, which (ahem) chose a front-page placement for the story to debate whether it's just a commercial ploy or a legit development [110 reader responses so far], is here (Buffy's Romp: Marketing Ploy or Part of the Plot? Despite Critics, 'Buffy' Creator Says Sex Scene Was Part of the Story Line, Emily Friedman, March 6, 2008):

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=4396156&page=1

MTV: http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1582835/story.jhtml

(they also have a new interview [I think it's new, I couldn't get it to play on dial-up at home) w/Amber abt doing lesbian kisses in Buffy).

Ok, posting all those links exhausted me.

Totally fascinating. Not just the comic (and it's Whedon so no big surprise there), but the press reaction. I wasn't at all sure the NY Times would even know what a "graphic novel" is.
