LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
on May 20, 2013
I was pleasantly surprised when my comic arrived.
For one, it came packaged in gray, plastic packaging. But in the inside it was taped between 2 pieces of cardboard and sealed in plastic! I was so happy.
One of my main worries was that it would come to me all beat up, but thankfully it got here in perfect condition.
Also, it's thicker than I had thought.
When I hear "Comic" I think, really thin paper, easily tearable. But this has the thickness of a paperback book (maybe even a slightly thicker). And the pages are a little thicker than a magazine, so they won't tear or bend as easy as a regular comic.
The art work is phenomenal, and the layout is, obviously, like a comic book.
I had a really hard time finding a complete, legit list of comics for the Buffy series. So, to save anyone else looking some time, I will post it here (this list does not include the Angel series)
BtVS: Omnibus (Vol. 1-7)
Issue 1 is a rewrite of the original BtVS movie, but with Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy
The other 6 I believe follow the TV series until season 7.
BtVS: Season 8 (Vol. 1-8)
BtVS: Season 9 (Vol. 1-3)
Then there are 2 Spin-offs for Spike and Willow:
Spike: Alone Together Vol. 1
Spike: Stranger Things Vol. 2
Spike: The Complete Series
Willow & Tara: WannaBlessedBe
Willow & Tara: Wilderness
Also there is one BtVS Comic called Fray, which follows the story of a girl named Fray, a slayer in the future.
And lastly there is the BtVS: Tales. This is "Tales of the Slayers" and "Tales of the Vampires" put together in one issue.
These are all the Collected issues. Instead of buying all the different parts separate (for example: The Long Way Home has about 4 parts to it) they are all collected into one volume together.
There is also a collectors book from what I read called BuffyVerse Catalog. It's kind of pricey, but from what I've read it's a "Must-Have" for collectors :)
I apologize for the length of this review, but I figure this will help SOMEONE out lol.
Very excited to collect the rest of the Buffy comics :)
