Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BOOM! Comics), Issue #1, by Jordie Bellaire


More than twenty years after the TV series' debut (and twenty-seven after the original movie), and despite a plethora of spin-offs, continuations, and a potential reboot, BOOM! comics decided that what the world needed was yet another take on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

With that in mind, I assumed his much-heralded return to the Buffy comic 'verse would be something special. Sadly, I was wrong: there's nothing in the first two issues of the four-issue Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles miniseries that makes me miss Whedon at all...

Much ado about nothing... that I particularly care about, anyway.


The teaser trailer is out for Joss Whedon's adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, and it looks... artistic. Black-and-white, y'know, and heavy on the strong, dramatic words flashing across the screen in equally strong, dramatic font...

Release the merchandising tie-ins!

Sadly, I grew so bored by the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics that I didn't bother to read the last six or so issues. I have 'em... and I might get to 'em eventually... but it'll need to be a slo...

Bad idea.

Well, TPTB have finally made up their minds: they do want a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie, but one without Willow, Xander, Spike, Dawn, et al. Oh, and without Joss Whedon, the man who took the or...
