So...Did you pick up the new buffy comic? What did you think of the start of Season 8? Spoiler: I'm going to talk about the book, so if you want to be surprised, don't read any further.........You've been warned........ So far I really liked it. I love the explanation that it was a Buffy double partying with the Immortal. I also love that it was Andrew's little joke on Angel and Spike. I hope Andrew shows up again soon. He's so funny. I also really liked the reveal at the end. It's good to see Amy back, I think she could be a great villain, and it will be awesome to see her and Willow fight. But who do you think her "Boyfriend" could be? Someone who needs a lab? I thought it might be Rack, that evil worlock who got Willow all juiced up on evil magic to start with, but why would be need a lab? Is it possible that Warren could have lived? Without skin? (ewwww...) I'd love ot hear what others think....

I finally got my copy of it, and I really liked it, although I didn't get the Immortal reference until I read this. What I want to know is where Willow is...all we got was Dawn asking if Willow had called yet. And I don't remember any mention of a thricewise before. And I'm excited that Amy survived the destruction of Sunnydale. It's going to add a lot to the storyline. And I love the fact that the government is after Buffy again, although you'd think that they'd have learned the first time. I can't wait until the next comic comes out...do you know when it does? Although I'm sure I could just look it up. lol

You know I didn't know what a thricewise was either. I'm wondering if this is something new. They obviously can put some "big" spells on people :-) Not sure when the next one is out...but it's almost a new month so it much be soon!

It took me awhile, but I found out that the second issue comes out April 11, and the third comes out May 2. But that was all I could find out.

I hadn't realized that these had started, now I can't find any! Do you know of anywhere online that they can be ordered? I would really like to read about Willow again, and Spike. Those were my two all time favorite characters, and then Anya, but I guess we won't be seeing her again...or could we?

I think at this point ebay might be your best bet. You can also try the Dark Horse comics website (www.darkhorse.com). They are the one who put it out. I'm not sure yet if they will be doing a second printing but that happens sometimes too. After a while, they will probably put out a trade paperback which is all the comic bound together in a paperback. You can usually find those on amazon.com, but it probably won't be out for a year. I'll definately be picking up the trade once it somes out.

OMG! It was so nice to see those characters again. Also, I love the fact that they brought Amy back instead of just creating all new characters. I mean, you can't destroy the hell mouth and just walk away from it, can you? Oh, and I was so excited to hear about the "decoy" Buffy's. I almost laughed out loud when I read about the fake Buffy in Italy and Andrew thinking it would be funny if she dated the immortal. That sneaky Andrew. I really hope he manages to pop up in the comics. As for Amy's boyfriend, I couldn't come up with nay ideas right away. In fact, part of me was hoping that they had found Anya in the rubble and that she would come back. I miss her. I mean, really, she was such a great character. Hmmm, you think it might be Warren? That's not a bad guess at all. Amy could have been with him underground all during the last season. Hmmm, I might have to go back and look for more clues. PArt of me wants to scour the internet for spoilers or other people's theories, but I think in this case it will be really nice to be surprised. I can't wait for the next one already. You should post about that one too when it comes out. IT will be nice to have people to talk about Buffy with.

Oh, yeah I'm hoping to find some people to talk about each issue. Apparently evey sopy sold out, and they are totally psyched about it. I know in my local comic shop it sold out pretty fast. Luckily I've got an IN and they help a copy for me. You know....I wonder if Amy found Warren all nastified and tried to heal him or some thing. We know that Amy know that Warren represents all things bad to Willow....especially after that spell that made Willow look like Warren in season 7. So maybe Amy found Warren after he got "flayed" and kept him alive magically. After all there was mention of him needing a Lab, and whatever was wrong with her "boyfriend" the authorities who had them were pretty repulsed by him. They would be a pretty good evil duo, and it would be really tempting for Willow to revert to her "dark" way to get them. What's with Dawn bing so huge. That's crazy. Is a "thricewise" a new thing in the comic? I don't recall a previous mention of them. I hope others weigh in soon too.

OH, good point about needing a "lab." Warren was the guy who made those robot and evil weapon-gadget-thingies. So the question is, did Amy find out that Warren was "pure evil" to willow before or after Warren got flayed? wEll, I suppose he might have lived through it and then Amy could have found him after. That would be the only thing that makes sense. Oh, Warren is such an evil guy. I think he is one of the most evil villians out there. He has no supernatural powers and yet he was able to do some of the worst damage to the Scoobies. Bringing him back really would be something.

Yeah, It's in comic book form. Sadly no talk of TV. But comics can be really great. Joss is writing it so it has a lot of the same feel as the show. The first issue was great! I would suggest you check it out anf give it a shot.
