Eric Powell is a writer and artist from Nashville Tennessee who has contributed work for every major publisher in the comics industry. In 1999 Eric launched his critically acclaimed creator owned series THE GOON. In 2002 Eric Launched ALBATROSS EXPLODING FUNNYBOOKS in an effort to keep the Goon alive when no other publisher wanted it because it was too 'different'. But the readers spoke and the Goon quickly became an indy hit and picked up a diehard cult following. The Goon found a home and a wider audience with DARK HORSE COMICS, but Eric continued to publish creator owned comics through Albatross such as his all ages comic CHIMICHANGA and Rebecca Sugar’s PUG DAVIS. Eric has spent his career creating and promoting the validity and importance of creator owned comics through Albatross and other publishers such as Dark Horse and Image Comics. In 2016 Eric rededicated himself in earnest to his publishing company, ALBATROSS FUNNYBOOKS, and launched his new fantasy series HILLBILLY, his kid's horror anthology SPOOK HOUSE, as well as other creator owned titles. Eric has been working in collaboration with acclaimed director David Fincher, Tim Miller, and Blur Studios to bring the Goon to life on the big screen as an animated feature film.

Disclaimer: I've never seen a single episode of the series or read any of the comics before, but I got this in a Humble Bundle, which I finally got around to reading. I don't know. I think it would have been much more fun if I had grown up with the series, so there would have been nostalgia involved...
I enjoyed reading this collection of comics. It gave a back story of what happened between the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie and the TV show. I liked reading about that and found it very interesting. I liked the artwork in the comics and I liked the story lines.
While it's neat to see people - Angel, Pike, Joyce, Dawn, Giles and Wesley to name a few - before Buffy hit Sunnydale high, I found that I missed the usual gang - Xander, Willow, Cordelia and all all the rest - more than I liked seeing the before. One of the things that made Buffy work so well was ...
Joss Whedon comics are always the best. This volume was almost 400 pages, and it alone was worth the $15 I paid for the Humble Bundle. The art was great, the stories were great, and cmon, it's Angel. I absolutely heart Angel.
