Yeah, Dark Horse comics puts them out: they're called "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8".<br>
They sold out of the first and second printing of the first one, but my comicbook store, at least, has some left. I don't know what the sales of the second one are like: you should be able to get one.

Ooh, that is exciting. I hadn't even heard about this. Shows how out of the loop I am since Angel ended. I'll have to find myself a copy!

I'm not a comic book person....<br><br>
but I am loving Buffy Season 8.<br><br>
The first issue had a lot of setup and the feel was ok but not great.<br>
Issue 2 feels like Buffy is back!<br><br>
We have a subscription setup so they are just being delivered to the house. It rocks!

Yes, issue two felt a lot more like the show to me. I got such a tingle holding that first issue for the first time, though. It's so great to have them back!<br><br><br><br><br>
That last page of issue two really got me.Wow.<br><br><blockquote></blockquote><span style="color:#FF0000;font-size:xx-small;">Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!</span>
<hr><span style="color:#000000;background-color:#000000;">I think the biggest thing for me at this point is that I really, really miss Anya. I feel like Xander should show more grief about her_ but maybe that's coming.<br><br>
I can't wait to find out who that is in the dream_ although with everything that's gone before it may be meaningless.<br><br>
Also: why doesn't Dawn just stomp the bad guys? (I'm trying to be vague here) where is she when all those slayers are fighting?</span>

Good Point! Maybe Buffy won't let her, as usual. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

With the black coat and the red t-shirt? I guess I was thinking Spike... of course, it is a pretty weird dream, so who knows.<br>
Who do you think is Amy's boyfriend? My first thought was FlayedWarren, but some folks seem to think it might be Adam, which actually makes more sense, except for the "gross" factor. Requesting a weapons lab, and all that. We don't knw if he was completely destroyed_ maybe he just needed another uranium core, which magic could surely create.

i read them both & will have to re-read them a few times <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: i'm not used to comic format & i was left a little off kilter. that last page of #2 though, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:<br><br>
dh gets them delivered from things from another world (maybe <a href="http://www.tfaw.com" target="_blank">www.tfaw.com</a> ??) i'm excited to see how they build the story lines!

<hr><span style="color:#000000;background-color:#000000;">I don't know, it didn't really look like Angel's physique... some folks have suggested Dracula, because the quote sounded like something he said once, especially the "my love" part. (Spike normally says luv)<br>
But who knows? it could be Spike who quickly morphs into Dracula and then Angel. I mean, look at Xander's poor head! wow, how was that for a twist, huh?<br>
Also, did anybody get that she was dreaming when she said "are you coming to bed?"? That sure threw me for a loop!</span>

I like it so far.<br><br>
I had to re-read the page with Buffy and Zander, I kept wondering if she was dreaming.<br><br>
I too think its Spike, but that be my love of Buffy and Spike together. I take it Joss Whedon isn't using Angelverse in this story. But, then if she is dreaming maybe Spike can be there.<br><br>
Am I the only one still annoyed by Dawn.

But he is, he is! Did you read the letters section at the end of the second comic?<br>
Also, if you're a Spike fan, check out Spike:Asylum. It should be available in a collected book pretty soon. And it's great.

I glanced over them, will read them again though. I am a huge Whedon fan, so I would love to see him incorporate Angelverse into Buffyverse again.<br><br>
Thanks for the tip about Spike: Asylum. There are quite a few comic book stores in town so I might walk over and check it out.
