By Robert Moore HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
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.

I don't have anything else to say about Georges Jeanty's art that I didn't already say in my review for Buffy season 8 volume 1. All of the main characters look like the real person that they're based on and the monsters look cool. I give this volume 5 stars for art.

I know who Brian K Vaughn is, but I've never read anything else that he's written as far as I know. I feel confident enough in whomever Joss Whedon hands writing duties over to when he's not writing it personally. I know Joss would never allow some substandard writing to be done as official canon of such a beloved creation. This volume brings faith and Giles into the season 8 story for the first time. I thought Vaughn's best work in this book was his interactions between Faith, Giles and whomever else Faith ran into. I'm not saying than any of his writing was bad. It's just that those interactions stood out the most for me. Faith is my favorite character in the Buffy-verse and I feel that Vaughn understands her character well. I'll have to pick up some of his other work to see if it is as good as this.

In my opinion, standalone issues of comics as well as standalone episodes of TV series are generally just filler material to bridge a gap between story arcs. Joss Whedon's work seems to be an exception to that. With episodes like Hush in the TV series and issue #10 that wraps up this volume, Whedon has proven himself very adept at telling a compelling standalone story that doesn't detract from the larger season encompassing story. Having Buffy and Willow tell each other about their fantasies that include Daniel Craig, Tina Fey, and not one, but two Christian Bales is purely Whedon-esque humor mixed into an otherwise emotional story.

I give Vaughn's 4 issue story arc as well as Whedon's standalone issues both 5 stars. When I'm reading these volumes, I can clearly see the scenes being played out live in my head and wishing that this show was still on the air.
