5.0 out of 5 stars This is sweet, even years after cancellation, Buffy lives, December 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Buffy: The Making of a Slayer (Hardcover)
This book is awesome! The foil stamped slip case with the magnetic closure is even nicer than the recently released Inside HBO's Game of Thrones foil stamped clamshell. I am glad that studios are finally realizing that us fans want more content, more in depth looks into project development and behind the scenes info on what it took to produce said project.

Granted, if you have watched and own the seven seasons of Buffy and have seen the special features, this book will seem to be lacking a lot of new info. There is a good forward by Tara (Amber Benson) and a good recap of key points throughout all seven seasons. Any die-hard fan won't need these season high lights recapped for them, but never the less, I like the structure of this book. But this book isn't really trying to bring too much new info to us Whedon and Buffy fans, this book is more of a retrospective and celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

There are some quotes and bits of interviews from David Fury, Jane Espenson, Joss Whedon (of course) and from the cast as well. There are good screen shots from the show in color that don't seem to be upscaled, there are some cool behind the scenes photos I have never seen before and the exclusive content that comes in the form of 13 artifacts is great. I won't give them all away as I feel like that's spoiling the fun for Buffy fans, but you get a page from the Watchers Diary about a slayer named Rebecca from 1793, parchment paper written in Nezzla demon language, the spell Willow performs to restore Angel's soul in the episode "Becoming" and a few more really cool artifacts.

Bottom line, if you are a Buffy fan, if you are currently reading Buffy season 8 and 9 by Dark Horse comics, if you have re-watched the show countless times and like good books about your favorite shows and movies, then you need this great celebratory book of one of the best and most Iconic mythos ever created for the small screen.

Buffy Lives!!

Sorry about the nitpick, but I couldn't help myself. Buffy was never cancelled. It ended of its own volition.

Hahaha! I noticed that when I went back and re read it, didn't change it cuz I didn't think anyone noticed. I think I'm just used to all of Whedons other stuff getting cancelled. For some reason I feel like they ended it because they knew they weren't getting picked up for another season. I could be wrong.
