I wanted to love this
Buffy: The High School Years--Freaks & Geeks - Joss Whedon,Faith Erin Hicks,Yishan Li

I'd heard great things about the author, and I went into this knowing I'd hate the art, because I'd seen this in paper.   But it was on sale for one dollar, and I figured why not?  

 

Unfortunately the art killed a lot of this for me.  It's not the manga style, even with characters I know.   Manga art can be amazing.   This particular art just didn't do it for me, and was quite frankly not the best, even with understanding how manga art differs from Western art. 

 

This would play better if it didn't feel a little like some episodes; the question of whether or not teen outsiders, and those who had been done wrong, have been dealt with in the series, in a more nuanced way in my opinion.   The friends flipping on each other felt like that episode where Buffy's once-upon-a-time bestie male friend came from out of town, too.   

 

So, yeah, not as impressed as I thought I'd be.  I was hoping for more, but glad to finally read this series and get a sense of what it was.

Love love, love
Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1 : New Rules (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10) - Rebekah Isaacs,Christos Gage,Joss Whedon

I didn't read all of last season, I think, but I figured since I had this, I'd give it a go.  Or maybe I just don't remember all of season nine?   Either way, this filled in what I needed to know, and I never felt completely thrown for a loop.   

 

I enjoyed the humor and warmth of Buffy's extended family and I love seeing Spike grow as a character.
