The writing was very good and the artist helped illustrate the story very well.
Racheal Pozerski
It's always been hard, nearly impossible even, for Faith to make up for the things that she did... And I think that this is a good way for her to really start.
Rachel
Season 8 continues with a sizeable story about Faith and Giles, which were two of my favorite Buffy characters.

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

This Faith arc is the second major story to be told in BUFFY Season 8 and is a wonderful spin on Faith's own story.

Anyone who has seen BUFFY knows the story of Faith (and not merely in Andrew's fanciful version from "Bad Girls" in Season Seven). Faith is essentially what you get when someone from a broken home with all the attendant emotional difficulties becomes a slayer. Without a stable support network, in Season Three Faith falls prey to the Mayor, who gives her the kind of fatherly care she received from no other place. Largely thanks to Angel, she gradually gets her life back under control, but even so she remains an outsider compared to Buffy and her gang of new slayers.

In "No Future for You" Giles approaches Faith with a proposition. One of the new slayers had been killing other slayers. If Faith could get close to her and kill her, he would give Faith financial backing to go anywhere she wanted. What follows is a tragic story as Faith realizes that the killer slayer had been profoundly misinformed about Buffy (who she intended to kill). Instead of killing her, she hopes to give her the kind of second chance that Angel had given her. Unfortunately her good intentions are for naught, resulting not only in the new slayer's death, but in Buffy becoming more suspicious than ever of Faith's good intentions. Giles, however, understands more fully the nature of the situation, and with a newfound respect for how much Faith has grown as a person, asks her to team with him to take care of other challenging situations in the future regarding out of control slayers.

"No Future for You" was written by comics superstar Brian K.

Some fans were on the fence about the first volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight. If "No Future For You," the second volume of the series, can't pull them off that fence and over to the rabid fan-boy/girl side, then nothing can, because this is just a solid, solid book.

Brian K. Vaughan takes on writing duties for the main part of this volume, the titular "No Future for You" miniseries. In the story, we catch up with Faith, who is still adjusting to living live as one of the good guys. Like most Joss Whedon (and Brian K. Vaughan, for that matter) works, this is a dark book with a lot of moral ambiguity that perfectly suits Faith and Giles, who is also a major part of this arc. Brian K. Vaughan's writing is great and his intricate knowledge of the medium of comic books makes this a better arc than Joss's own "The Long Way Home."

The story has Faith going up against a rogue slayer, which has her reflecting a lot on her own evil days. Through flashbacks, Vaughan makes strong parallels between Faith's past and the main action of this story, which takes place at a "fancy dress party" in England. Vaughan doesn't let us forget about the Scoobies, who are dealing with their own problems back at the Scottish castle. Another big plus about this story is that the Big Bad of the season is revealed on the final page of #9 (the conclusion to the "No Future for You" arc).

Also included in this book is a one-shot called "Anywhere But Here" (written by Joss Whedon), which is been one of the fan favorites from Season Eight.

Format: Paperback
Episodes 6-9 continue in "No Future for You". They continue the threads of the earlier five episodes and in the way we would expect from Joss Whedon. Here we find out what Faith and Giles have been up to as well as more about Willow's private life and Dawn's indiscretions. Still not enough about Xander and Buffy when I'm so used to them, especially Buffy, being the center of the show. But given that a couple thousand slayers have been triggered the focus should be spread out. Can't wait for the third volume.

For me, this is the best one of the Buffy Season 8 so far. I love the stories with Faith and that no matter how good Faith's intentions are, she always ends up with her face meeting Buffy's fist. I also love the idea that Giles and Faith will team up in the future to protect Buffy from those things that she just shouldn't need to deal with.

This is a great installment in Season 8 of BTVS.

First of all, I have to say that it's good to see a Faith addition to the BTVS series that actually focuses around Faith in a good way. One that actually shows some character growth, that actually shows Faith trying to do good.
No, it doesn't start out that way, really... But it ends with the Faith character actually showing some growth outside of the "Angel" series (Which, IMO, is the only place that it actually happened in the past... Yes, in season 7 of Buffy, Faith had changed, but those changes took place as a result of "Angel" plot-lines).

It starts out as a kill mission from Giles but turns into Faith trying to make the target see the error of her ways and change sides. The result is accidental and Faith does not relish in it, as she did in the past to similar events. As a result of what happened, Faith decides to contribute to the good fight in her own way and probably the best way that she can... Helping and rehabilitating Slayers that have lost their way.

I've always thought that Faith was one of the more complicated characters in the BTVS world. Most of her story wasn't told on either show, I don't think, only the results of the things that made her the way that she is.
It's always been hard, nearly impossible even, for Faith to make up for the things that she did... And I think that this is a good way for her to really start. I don't think that normal 'Slaying' is for her anymore but she could end up doing a lot more good than she could ever do if she were to go that route.
She also knows that no matter what she does, Buffy and the gang will never trust her. She will never actually be a part of the team.. But that may end up being the best for Faith.

I definitely enjoyed this installment and I really hope that there's more to come of Faith's story.
