As for the rest of installment, I can see where this is setting up the plots for the next story arc, and that's fine. Just remember that exposition and pawn placement is always a little... dry.
Oh, and just for fun, "Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday." <-- Oh how I miss Tuesdays with Buffy <3
This is a bad, bad book and I don't recommend anyone waste their time or money on it. I would give it "no stars" if Amazon would let me.
Karl Moline from Fray has an 8 page comic short at the end and Camilla D'errico has a 2 page one. I view these few pages as supplemental like the bonus comic covers thrown into each volume. They don't amount to enough to warrant a rating. Jo Chen does the art for the cover of each volume. I haven't mentioned her art yet because it's only a supplement as well, but her art is amazingly beautiful. The reason I mention her now is because of the super fantastic piece she did featuring Faith and Giles.
In my reviews for previous volumes of season 8, I've stated my distaste for single standalone issues in comics. Most of the time they're just filler in between 2 story arcs like mortar between 2 bricks, but not as important. Predators and Prey is nothing but single standalone stories. Unlike your average single issue stories, these standalones form a disjointed story arc.Read more ›
Harmony is back, and she's just as weird as ever. This time, she's got her own reality TV show. Which, as you can imagine, causes all sorts of problems for Buffy and the gang. Vampires are suddenly seen by the world as the misunderstood heroes, and Slayers are now the villains. Why would you hurt a creature that's just trying to find its way in the world? Vampires don't have to kill - they totally know when to stop! And who doesn't want to live forever? All of this mixed in with Harmony's usual antics is actually pretty humorous and I really enjoyed the sections with her show more than I thought I would. I probably would not watch it in real life, but it was entertaining for the sake of these comics
Twilight is behind the whole anti-Slayer thing, and the plot involving it was better than it has been in past volumes. We actually learn a little bit more (although not who or what Twilight actually is), and I didn't find myself rolling my eyes every time he talked. Oh, and there are also these evil Vampy Kitty toys which are absolutely hilarious. I think they crawl inside of people while they're sleeping and possess them? I'm not entirely sure, but it was kind of funny watching the Slayers battle an army of evil stuffed kittens.
Then we have the Slayers who have taken over an island. They're actually pretty annoying, and the only good thing was Andrew.Read more ›
