About the Author
Joss Whedon was born in New York City in 1964. He started out as a staff writer for the 1990s sitcom Roseanne and worked on films, including Toy Story. In 1992 he penned the script for a film, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and when the TV version starring Sarah Michelle Gellar took off in 1997, Whedon had his big break—with its female action heroine, Buffy, became a huge hit. Whedon wrote hundreds of episodes for Buffy and its spin-off Angel, and was nominated for Emmy and Hugo awards for his work. Whedon has come to enjoy a cult following. The author lives in Santa Monica, California.
Camilla d'Errico is a first-generation Canadian, born in Ottawa, Ontario. Her Italian parents immigrated to Canada before she was born. From a young age her early interests included Saturday morning cartoons, comics, manga, and doodling fantasy elements in her textbooks. Camilla d'Errico's career as a painter began in 2006, when she participated in shows at Vancouver's Ayden Gallery in Gastown. Since early 2007, d'Errico has been showing her work in galleries across the United States and Canada, in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Vancouver in what is known as the Lowbrow art movement. She is among the group of female artists, including Audrey Kawasaki and Amy Sol, who paint beautiful young girls in the pop surrealism category. With her work on Helmetgirls, d'Errico expanded upon the concept of headgear to include animals of all kinds, intertwining and juxtaposing her stylized, fantasy girls with lifelike animals. Her girls are unusually stunning, doe-eyed, and magnificently colorful female characters. The author lives in Vancouver, Canada.

1) The hardcover is gorgeous, I actually removed the slip cover because underneath are these awesome blown up portraits of the main characters. This one has a big comic style picture of Xander's face on it, and the likeness is spot-on. The previous one had Willow, and it was very obviously Alyson Hannigan's adorable mug.
2) There's a little reading ribbon for saving your place, which is great and useful.
3) Extra content! There are sketches, scripts and notes from the artists and writers for each volume and this one is no different.
4) The size! The books are huge, so the pages are also huge. You're able to see much more detail than the regular volumes.
5) The story. It's certainly a lot crazier than the TV show because of the lack of limitations of a low-budget syndicated TV show. Doesn't necessarily mean it's better, but it has that Buffy feel, the characters are all written true to their TV counterparts. This volume has an epic battle, and the return of the character Oz. If you're a fan of Oz (played by Seth Green in the TV series) and want to know what became of him, this is a must read.
Now, the story- wow, is it really picking up! It's the same writers who did the show (including, of course, Joss) and it really shows. Andrew is put to great use here, and the stand-alone stories are good too- love Faith and Giles in Germany. There's some good follow-through and further development with Buffy and Willow re: the Fray arc in the last book. And we get to see Oz again! He is very well written and drawn in this arc- every panel with him in it exudes that Seth Green coolness, from his spectacular reintroduction to the conclusion of the book- which leaves off on something of a cliff-hanger, by the way! I'm sorely tempted to go out and get the last quarter of Season 8 in whatever format it's already out in, but it was worth waiting for this gorgeous book, and it'll be worth waiting for the next one, I'm sure.

You are probably here for a reason. If ever I had a guilty pleasure Buffy would be atop that list of candidates.Read more
