Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #1

I just read it today.  This comic book is written by Joss Whedon and picks up a little bit after the destruction of Sunnydale.  Buffy, along with a gaggle of slayerettes, are battling demons like before.  Some are in Italy, others are scattered in other places, and Buffy, along with her team, is in Scotland.  Joss even makes a connection to the episode on Angel when Spike and Angel went to Italy to find Buffy when they needed some help with something and they saw Andrew.  Andrew told them that she was out with The Immortal, the guy vampire she was dating.  Angel and Spike went to find her and saw her dancing and having a great time.  WELL — apparently that was a decoy.  They have 2 decoys around in order to keep Buffy safe just in case she is a target for assassination.

Xander is now the Watcher and keeps an eye (HA HA, get it, since he only has one eye) on things from a control room.  They still have some contact with Giles apparently because they send some info to him for analysis.  Dawn is also around, however there is a problem.  She is now a GIANT!  She did some kind of magic or something and it must have went wrong.  Everyone is trying to find Willow in order to help.

There is some military group snooping around the caved in Sunnydale.  They want Buffy dead and hope to have found someone still alive at the bottom of the crater that can help them. 

Comic books are just too short for me, but it was nice being involved with the Buffy Universe all over again.  #2 should be coming out in a week or so.  I don’t know how many will be in the series, but you can check out the Darkhorse comics website to find out probably.

If you are a Buffy fan you’ll definately want to pick up this comic book.
