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.

Forever Hatter Mad Tea Party Recipes
Forever Hatter: Mad Tea Party Cookbook [Digital Companion to the Coloring Book Comic] (These Aint No Confidential, Top-Secret Recipes from Literary Kitchens Kinda Cookbooks Series 1) - Wonderland Cafe,Buffy Naillon,Buffy Naillon,John Tenniel

This was such a fun cookbook with recipes that I will enjoy making. This book also can be printed and becomes a coloring book. It has some fun information on tea and what a high tea is and why it originated. Very good information.

Buffy: S8
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Long Way Home - Joss Whedon,Georges Jeanty,Paul Lee,Andy Owens,Dave Stewart,Richard Starkings

This'll be for all of S8, since I'm too lazy to shelve each volume individually. I read these as they were released and while there were a lot of things I liked about it and it started off promising, there were more things I didn't like. The wit was there in spades, and the artwork was great. There were a lot of individual issues that were great, but many of the overall story arcs were not my favorite, and a couple of them thoroughly pissed me off even before that craptastic ending. If this is what lack of special effects budget means for the Buffy-verse, give me cheesy foam-suited monsters and inventive lighting any day.


I did get the first issue of S9 but could never bring myself to read it. I'll stick to the TV show (which I'm currently rewatching for the 10th time).

Creatures of Habit
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Creatures of Habit - Jim Pascoe,Paul Lee




I was always happier with Buffy/Spike than Buffy/Angel. I liked Angel with Cordie so much more. So glad Joss didn't kill Spike off in season 1 like originally intended.
