A few bits o' news.
1. By request, here is a review I did of "The Origin" a while ago. Click meh!
2. Again, by request.... here are some other reviews I've done that do and don't fit in with the topic of this site. If you shop on Amazon, you might have (but probably not) seen some of these. But here is my Amazon review profile: Click meh (as helpful!)
3. Yeah, it's a few days old. Yeah, I knew about it a few days ago. Yeah, I posted about it on Facebook and debated elsewhere before posting it here. Yeah, I'm lazy and all that. Yeah, yeah yeah. Click the cover on the right. Remember how much Jon Foster sucked at covers (with the sole exception of #12)? Well... Jo Chen still does the opposite of suck. Well... actually the opposite of suck is literally blow if you think about it, but she doesn't blow. She rocks. She is the opposite of... things not rock-like. But yeah, that's the cover for #16 and its her triumphant return to the making of Buffy covers.
....and yeah, that's Buffy fighting Fray. The description of the issue, provided by SlayAlive, is as follows:
July trumpets the return of Jo Chen, but also heralds the return of both Karl Moline and Fray to the Buffyverse! The Buffster squares off against her futuristic descendant in this four-part arc by Joss Whedon and Karl Moline, who first collaborated in 2003's Fray mini-series.
Hoah yeah! So we've got Moline doing the arc, Joss writing, and both Buffy and Fray starring. I couldn't be happier we've got Moline for this, but how cool would it be if the "back in the present" scenes are pencilled by Georges. Very cool, methinks.
So lets look at what we've got coming up.
March 5th: Buffy #12 (Big surprise!)
Mid/Late March: Angel- After the Fall #5 (Two days are up, Angel)
April 2nd: Buffy #13 (Drac's back)
Mid/Late April: Angel- After the Fall #6, First Night 1 (We see how Connor, Lorne, and Spike's spent their first night in Hell)
May 7th- Buffy #14 (Hypno Dawn stomps shit)
Mid May- Angel- After the Fall #7, First Night 2 (Wes gets ghosty)
Angel- After the Fall #8, First Night 3 (Conclusion)
Angel- After the Fall #9 (back to the main story)
