Review ~ The End?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 12, Vol One The Reckoning - Christos Gage,Joss Whedon

Book source ~ Library

 

Buffy and gang have been living their life in the wake of the last big near-apocalypse. Magical creatures are laying low and life is quiet. Buffy and Spike have broken up, Dawn and Xander are married with a baby and living in the burbs of San Fran, Giles is his old self again, and Willow is teaching women how to empower themselves. But something big is coming. Bigger than anything they’ve ever faced before. And they’ll need everyone on board to stop it.

 

This graphic novel says Volume One, but it feels an awful like The End to me. I know I read that Joss Whedon and Dark Horse were parting ways after Season 12, but I’m not sure if there will be a Volume Two to this one. Maybe?

 

I’m really not happy with the fast forward. What the fuck? So many changes and no explanations. Then Angel and Illyria show up and I find out they are lovers? Again, I say wtf?! Where is all this coming from? Apparently the Angel and other comics have some major shit going on that I missed.

 

What I like about this last gasp: The humor, the appearance of some major characters, the fight scenes.

 

What I don’t like: the fast forward, the huge changes dumped on me with no explanation, a lot of the artwork is just…off. There were many times I couldn’t tell who was who in this. Ugh.

 

I really get the feeling this is it – the end. So, good-bye, my friends. I’ll miss you.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (picture book)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Jim Smith

This was the cutest picture book. It is the perfect way to introduce a child into the world of Buffy and when they are older force them to watch all the episodes. I loved looking for the little details that would make any Buffy fan smile in delight, or in my case grin like a dork and make a giggle sound. You see familiar faces of people Buffy goes up against in the show and her little pig stuffed animal, Mr. Gordo!

 

The illustrations by Kim Smith are so adorable. As this is meant for children the canon is changed; it is the cute, innocent version of Buffy. I loved it. I'm an adult who still loves picture books, children books, young adult, and adult books, too. (and that will never change!)

I got two awesome books that prove I'm a really eclectic reader!

I put in a special order at Barnes and Noble (because for some reason they didn't carry it in store!) for Paperbacks From Hell by Grady Hendrix and while I was at the store to pick it up, we had to go into the kids section to pick up a birthday gift for a 1-year-old.

 

I saw the Buffy the Vampire Slayer picture book based on the series created by Joss Whedon, with illustrations by Kim Smith. I had to have it! For me! I love horror, adult books, YA, middle grade and of course children books. I think even if my body breaks down over time, reading in this manner will help keep part of my mind young.

I'm such a dork. Both of these books are so cool!!

 

The back cover alone makes a Buffy fan happy! Look at the little attention to detail. When you read this, you have to remember it will be way different from the show. It has to be if they are marketing it for children.

I've only flipped through Paperbacks From Hell, but I've already seen some books I own or read, which is pretty neat!

Lupe by Gene Thompson is from 1977. I bought my copy in 2003 from a little used bookstore for $1. So I read it at 19 years old. From memory, this book freaked me out! I was pretty sheltered as a teen, even at 19, so this was probably considered a Taboo book to be reading with my relgious family. I imagine I hid it.

Creepy children...

My copy got a little beat up. I'm not too bothered by that. That just means this book has a history! Would I buy it again if I found a better copy of the first edition (and for cheap again... haha) I probably would if I read this again and still liked the story.

I tried to adjust the photo so you can see the faded text in the receipt! Not every day you find the original receipt tucked away.

 

As I read Paperbacks From Hell, I will keep track of which books I own, have owned and have read! (Oh, and of course the books I will want to hunt for and read! I know I will want to find the books with the covers the book shows, so my hunt might be harder.)

 

If you are a dork like me, you might look forward to my list, which I will share here. lol
