I love the guy.
Pat Shand
One of the most gifted comic writers around, one of Vaughan's greatest creations was The Runaways, which he did for Marvel.
Robert Moore
The flow and pacing and art of the story were compelling, absorbing, and seamless.

This is the variant cover issue of issue No. 6 in JOSS WHEDON'S SEASON EIGHT of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. I vastly prefer the regular cover, which shows Faith at her attitudinal best, holding the can with which she spray-painted "Faith" over "Buffy" in the title. Although contrary to popular mythology there was never a Faith series that Elisa Dushku opted against in order to star in TRU CALLING, there had been some initial discussion of doing such a series before the other project made her unavailable. One still wonders what direction that show would have taken, but this initial issue shows just a little of the potential that series would have held. As fascinating a character as Faith was, we never learned too terribly much about her backstory. We know that she was from a broken home in the Boston area, but not much more than that.

One episode of ANGEL explored the new world in which there are many slayers. In that episode Angel had to go up against a slayer who was insane. In this new episode Giles recruits Faith to go up against a slayer who is apparently evil. Frankly, I expect a twist of some sort, but at this point the slayer, an aristocratic young lady in Great Britain, clearly is serving the interests of a warlock. Why we don't know but Faith has been commissioned with the job of killing her.

I really liked this episode a lot. I loved the first five issues, but if I had a complaint with them it was that they tried to work too many familiar characters into them. The stories had, I felt, a bit too much content for the number of pages allotted. But here there was a near perfect balance between story and content.

This issue was written by Brian K. Vaughan, which is interesting for a host of reasons.

This was by far and away the best issue of Season Eight so far. But let's back track a little before we get too ahead of ourselves.

There has never been a Faith-centric episode before in either "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" or "Angel." I hear the gasps now. "What about Revelations, Bad Girls, Sanctuary, Orpheus, Who Are You, or Dirty Girls?" I see your point, guys. Faith was a major character in those. But those episodes aren't Faith-centric the way that 'The Zeppo' is Xander-centric, and 'Real Me' is Dawn-centric. See, in those Faithy episodes, we mostly just see Faith through other people's eyes. 'Who Are You?' is the exception to that, but even in that episode, we just see Faith simultaneously trying mess up/live Buffy's life. But here, we get a full on Faith-centric story, with the Bad Girl herself as the main character. That went on a little longer than I thought it would, for the record.

About the comic. It's, as they say, gold. The story was told perfectly, without the sometimes confusing transitions that made up "The Chain" and were sometimes present in "The Long Way Home." Each scene is given ample time to play out, and--instead of huge, swooping revelations and the return of old characters aplenty--what Vaughan concentrates on here is the subtle way each character's personalities reveal themselves when said characters talk to each other. The best examples of this are the Faith/Giles scenes in this issue: In a few short pages, so much seems to happen between these two characters. He gives her a mission (introducing the main plot of this arc), he trains her (and he SPOILER: gets stabbed by her with a SPOILER: fork), and the two of these characters connect and relate to each other in a way that they never have on the actual show.

Granted, I have read few comics. But so far, this is far and away my favorite episode of a comic ever. It may have something to do with the fact that Faith rocks as a tragic heroine - there's a damage, depth, passion, and intensity to her character that's so compelling that she stole the show from both Angel and Buffy when her "issues" were on camera - and it probably didn't hurt that Eliza Dushku blazed in this role, either. At any rate, Brian K. Vaughn gets the tone of the show just right, and he seems willing to really live with the characters. Unlike previous installments in this series, I found myself engrossed without having to stop and say, "huh?" The flow and pacing and art of the story were compelling, absorbing, and seamless. Plus, it's nice to see Faith accepting Giles as a father figure - she definitely has some healing to do with regard to male authority figures in her life. (And who can get enough of the dark side of Giles popping up every now and then?) Aside from a few wardrobe issues, the art and the story made for a stunning episode of Season 8. (If you're like me, you'll be relieved to hear that no fairies or weird slugs appeared anywhere in the issue. Phew!)
