Reiew for Buffy # 10.

In Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 11 #10

In Review: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 11 #10

Much happens, with the heroes making their way to the series' final obstacle.



by Patrick Hayes August 30, 2017

The covers: A pair to find and both are worth tracking down. The Regular cover is by the incredible Steve Morris who turns in another amazing cover. Buffy, Spike, and Faith are in a room surrounded by giant bubbles containing several different types of aquatic life, with a moray eel sticking out the most in front of Faith. Buffy reaches up to touch one before her and that could lead to trouble. If one were to look closer, all the creatures have some sort of electronics grafted onto them. The characters look excellent and the sea life eerie in pale violets. A beautiful and bizarre scene that does indeed occur in this issue. Christos Gage, Megan Levens, Dan Jackson, and Comicraft have created the Variant cover which has two panels featuring Spike, Willow, Buffy, and Faith on a beach. Spike says he’s found a way in (to something), but it will be problematic for those who breathe. Willow has that covered, but Buffy poses another possible problem. The vampire says he’s got that covered with the help of a newfound lady friend. It’s a funny joke with visuals that lead right into the action of the first page of this issue. This “deleted scenes” cover is definitely worth tracking down for those who want the entire story. Overall grade: Regular A+ and Variant A-

The story: The Cliff House and the ruins of the Sutro Baths have been repurposed by the government as a research facility named “Project Pandora.” Four Scoobies make their way in accompanied by some of Spike’s new friends. They enter through a water valve and are summarily attacked by a giant octopus that’s been outfitted with cybernetic enhancements. All are grabbed by the beastie, with Buffy breaking free first by using the Scythe she carries. Spike tries biting it to no effect. With Willow freed by the Slayer, the witch takes care of the cephalopod, leaving them with a blast of ink. Finding some stairs, Buffy worries aloud that they may be discovered, though Spike reassures her with some calming words. Willow uses her magic to light their way up and they come upon a chamber of horrors. What they discover is out of left field, though given what they encountered in the previous chamber not so much. The Scoobies figure out what’s being done and realize the overall game plan of those responsible. Before they can leave their location there’s a decent obstacle, with Page 10 having the saddest and creepiest moment of the issue, with one character electing to do something that no one else can. Christos Gage makes this sick, moving, and absolutely true to all the characters. With the heavy scene done, the Scoobies rejoin Xander and Dawn and a plan is hatched to get intel from the highest person involved with the evil scheme. This is a clever plan and produces some funny lines, especially on Pages 13, 17, and 19. There’s also a laugh out loud response in the fourth panel on 16. The book ends with the larger threat introduced and the heroes making a decision. This was an enjoyable read, with every expected mark hit. That’s why this was a minor disappointment. Every issue before this was exceptional, but this was just good, story-wise. It’s a transition issue to move the protagonists to the conclusion, with both halves of the story feeling rushed. This was good, just not at the level of previous issues. Overall grade: B

The art: Megan Levens is the artist of this issue and she does a good job with the visuals. The first page is really good build to the reveal at the bottom of the page, with the settings shown from a distance, the focus moving to a group, the group being shown in a new environment, until the Scoobies are finally revealed with them. It’s cinematic in its progression. The entrance though the water valve is also good on the second page, with the final three panels having no text whatsoever, relying wholly on Levens to communicate to the reader the story. I like how she used black in the trio of panels to show them entering a space where they can’t see and the robo-tentacles emerging in the final panel. The octopus battle is good, with one character held upside down, creating some good humor. The looks on the characters’ faces at the bottom of Page 4 is an excellent tease of what’s to come, with them showing their shock at what they see. The first panel of the next page contains some solid payoff, with several different things shown, with just enough unique about each to draw the eye; Levens has done plenty to make the reader linger over each item. The obstacle encountered on 7 doesn’t look strong enough to be a threat. The third panel on 8 looks as though there was supposed to be dialogue to the right of the character, but instead there’s quite a bit of empty space. The actions on 9 are as rough as can be drawn without going over-the-top gory, which was a good choice by Levens, making the first panel on the next page extremely sympathetic. The visual laughs that begin on 15 are from the gestures and posing of a particular character that keeps the reader in on the joke, while those in the story are clueless; it’s a good job with physical humor. There are two scenes in the book where several characters are in a small space and Levens really moves the point of view around well. However, on the final page the third and fourth panels are oddly stretched, again suggesting that dialogue was intended to be there, but is not. I like the art, though there are a few moments where it’s not as strong as Levens’s previous outings. Overall grade: B

The colors: The different settings of this book provide several opportunities for colorist Dan Jackson to really shine, and he does. The first page begins with beautiful blues that dull slightly when the location goes deep. The slight change in colors around the Scoobies shows the reader that Willow has helped them out. The octopus is gorgeous in a pulpy, mottled orange. The colors of the element shown on 5 are lovely, making their contents all the odder with their additional parts. The battle that breaks out also has some strong colors for the background, such as orange, violet, and yellow. I really like the weak mustard used in the fourth panel on 10 to mirror the sick action that’s to occur. Willow’s hair and outfit for the final sequence of the book makes her a stand out on every panel she’s in. Jackson’s work is good on this book. Overall grade: A

The letters: Richard Starkings and Comicraft’s Jimmy Betancourt create scene settings, narration, the story’s title, yells, dialogue, a whisper, vampire speech, sounds, screams, a transmission, and the tease for next issue. I’m still impressed by the scene settings, which are really strong and visually alert the reader that a change of locations is beginning. The sounds are also neat, with there being several in the action sequences. The vampire speech is also cool, with it being chilling the last time it’s used. Overall grade: A

The final line: Much happens, with the heroes making their way to the series’ final obstacle. The story comes off a bit rushed, but there’s still much to enjoy, with some odd things discovered and one character getting a very new perspective. Overall grade: B+

Angel # 8 review.

In Review: Angel: Season 11 #8

In Review: Angel: Season 11 #8

Zombie pirates, death dealing insects, and time travel paradoxes with Angel and Fred right in the middle of it.



by Patrick Hayes August 30, 2017

The covers: Scott Fischer is creating some incredibly wondrous covers for this series that are anything but Regular. Angel is holding Fred aloft, with her posing like a ballerina in some impossibly graceful pose. From the waist down the vampire has become a mass of the zombie beetles that have possessed so many characters in the previous two issues. Surrounding this mass of insects are several stretched out ghostly hands seeking to grasp the pair of protagonists. This is beautiful, elegant, and creepy. Dark Horse, please release Fischer’s covers as a series of prints! The Variant cover by Stephanie Hans is also really cool. Looking down upon the heroes’ raft, Angel tries to protect himself from the deadly rays of the sun. Walking on the ocean, leading the vessel, is Illyria, who looks back at the reader. Just under the water several shapes of dolphins — or are they something else? — escort the Old One. In the distance, an mountainous island can be seen, with the sun making it glow orange. Great cover that shows both heroes making their way to the next setting. This is great! Overall grades: Regular A+ and Variant A

The story: When last seen, Fred and Angel were castaways in a raft, with no land in sight. The sun has risen, making Angel seek shelter behind a barrel lid. Their raft was surrounded by the zombie pirates, who, in the first panel of this issue, are now attacking. The battle is brutal, with Fred being the weakest combatant, though she does wield an oar like a bat. Angel is pulled into the water by one of the monsters, and, since he doesn’t need to breathe, grabs the back of the raft and begins to kick quickly, putting a considerable distance between them and the floating foes. Angel realizes that they’re near an island, with him giving a fairly funny reason why. With Angel’s ability to power the dinghy, they make their way to land. Page 8 was a fantastic tease by writer Corinna Bechko to show that some other characters are also on the island and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to get to them. Before encountering these individuals, Angel and Fred have a quick conversation on altering history, since they have done so, but it doesn’t get as complicated as Doc Brown would have one believe. A tiny terror appears on 9 foreshadowing the return of a larger problem, and it’s as the heroes deal with this threat that more deadly ones appear on 12. The dialogue between these characters is flat out awesome. I almost — almost — wished that the rest of the issue allowed the conversation to take the remainder of the book, but Bechko realizes that all of them are threatened by what’s come ashore, and she has them deal with it in epic fashion. As if things couldn’t get bigger, another character arrives on 18 and the heat really turns up! The ending is fantastic, with the threat seemingly vanquished and time travel becoming very crowded. I loved every page of this issue, because it gave me plenty of exciting action that went to epic levels and had characters converse that never did on the series. Overall grade: A+

The art: This is Zé Carlos’s last issue, and that’s a shame because I’ve really enjoyed his work, with this being his best yet. The first eight pages of this installment focus entirely on Fred and Angel on the raft. This would seem to be a difficult location to make visually interesting, but Carlos does. Tight close-ups and moving the point of view around constantly, to make the action intense, makes this sequence a very quick read. I especially liked the zombie pirates’ bodies flying about and the water becoming so rough. There’s a really cool angle at the bottom of 3 that communicates to the reader what’s occurring without any dialogue. The entrance of the character in the large panel on Page 4 is perfection. There’s no dialogue on 6, and every reader will be able to understand what’s going through each character’s mind due to the illustrations. The sweet look given in the fourth panel on 11 was hilarious, and even funnier with the dialogue. The entrance in the first panel on 12 is like a creepy version of Wuthering Heights brought to life. Things go epic starting on 15 with several characters causing trouble and the group of protagonists trying to best them. The jaw-dropping image of the book is found on 18; all that’s missing is a rousing musical score. The substance that saves and damns the heroes after this entrance is really impressive. The final panel of the book is cool and funny, given who’s now involved in the action. Mr. Carlos, please return soon. Overall grade: A+

The colors: Gloriously strong colors mark Michelle Madsen’s work on this issue. A picture perfect blue sky and cool blues for the ocean create a picturesque backdrop for the motley browns and grays of the attackers. Sounds explode against these blues when Fred goes into action. Colors are key on these ocean scenes for Angel, as he’s trying to protect himself from the deadly sun, so his colors are dimmed to show he’s safely shaded. As the sun sets the background goes a killer violet that’s the envy of every sky. A dark blue is used to show the evening, which happily allows all of Carlos’s artwork to be seen in every panel. Bright colors are used for the backgrounds during the epic battle and they energize the art considerably, especially on Page 16. Orange dominates the final pages and it makes the proceedings all the more spectacular. Madsen can do no wrong on this book. Overall grade: A+

The letters: Sounds, the story’s title, dialogue, yells, several whispers, vampire speech, and the tease for next issue are created by Richard Starkings and Comicraft’s Jimmy Betancourt. The whispers in this book are well done, with them being small enough to instantly signify for the reader that the text being spoken is not as loud as the other dialogue, and it’s still big enough to be read without the reader having to strain. I thank both gentlemen for that! The sounds are the major takeaway of the issue as there’s just so many of them, with them being spectacularly varied to make each unique and fitting for their action. Plus, the vampire speech still creates chills, with emphasis being shown in one character’s speech, putting stress on a key word. Overall grade: A+

The final line: Zombie pirates, death dealing insects, and time travel paradoxes with Angel and Fred right in the middle of it. This makes being dead look easy. Absolutely recommended. Overall grade: A+

Former Buffy ditor Scott Allie leaves Dark Horse Comics

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/09...oes-freelance/

Scott Allie Steps Down From Dark Horse Comics, Goes Freelance

Posted by Rich Johnston September 29, 2017



Scott Allie is a longstanding comic book writer and editor, best known for his work at Portland publisher, Dark Horse Comics, for over twenty years.

He began editing Mike Mignola’s Hellboy in 1994, expanding the line and then co-writing BPRD, Abe Sapien, and other. He edited Joss Whedon’s 2001 comics debut, Fray, and worked with Whedon Buffy the Vampire Slayer and related series as both writer and editor. In 2004 he relaunched Robert E Howard’s Conan and other characters, brought Felicia Day and The Guild to comics in 2010, and Chuck Palahniuk and Fight Club in 2015. He also worked on original series The Umbrella Academy with Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, Beasts of Burden by Ethan Dorkin and Jill Thompson, Lady Killer by Joelle Jones, Rat God by Richard Corben, The Victories by Michael Avon Oeming, and his own comic book series Exurbia and The Devil’s Footprints.

From October 2012 to September 2015 he was editor-in-chief of the publisher before stepping down to become Executive Senior Editor two years ago. This move coincided with accusations made by comic book writer Joe Harris of public sexual assault to Janelle Asselin who reported similar events with others over the years that established a pattern of behaviour. Both Dark Horse and Scott Allie offered apologies, and promised action and I understand Allie underwent related treatment.

But as of today, Bleeding Cool has been told that Scott Allie is now leaving Dark Horse as an employee. He will remain a freelance writer and editor, including working on Dark Horse Comics titles but no longer restricted to them. With other Portland publishers established, including Oni Press, Image Comics, IDWX and the CBLDF, there are clearly other opportunities on his doorstep.

Dark Horse may speak more of this, and of their future plans, at New York Comic Con next week.

I knew something would come out of NYCC17 Buffy comic related and it has.

Joss's Buffy Season 11 Giles miniseries announced.Release date and first cover.

Joss Whedon takes Giles back to school in this BTVS: Giles exclusive announcemen

Oliver Sava



Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Rupert Giles has had one hell of a life. He was a bad boy that went by the name of “Ripper” in his 20s, and later in his adulthood, he helped save the world on multiple occasions as the mentor of Buffy Summers. Then he died, but death isn’t permanent in the Buffyverse. He was resurrected by his friends, and instead of returning to his old self, he was stuck in his pre-pubescent body with his middle-aged mind. Now Giles is a teenager, and it’s time for him to do what teens do: go to high school. Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Giles is a four-issue miniseries debuting on February 28 that enrolls Giles in an inner-city public school to investigate the mysterious disappearance of teachers, and Buffy creator Joss Whedon is teaming up with writer Erika Alexander, artist Jon Lam, and colorist Dan Jackson to explore this new phase in Giles’ life.



BTVS: Giles is also a return to high school for the Buffy franchise, which goes back to its roots with this new series while exploring a very different educational environment. “Sunnydale was, apart from being on a hellmouth, a pretty privileged place,” says Whedon. “Giles has never really dealt with the public school system as it exists for most kids. He’s never been to the city. Giles has always had the advantage of being a part of the system that educated him. He was taught to be a watcher in a family of watchers. His education was, in the grand British public school tradition, both expansive and parochial. In-depth views of tiny portions of the world. Of course, he walked over the awkward hormonal coals of adolescence—but now he knows more, and expects better of himself. His once-more 15-year-old body, however, is oblivious to his wisdom/cynicism/impatience.”

Whedon had a similar background as Giles, with his mother and her friends teaching at his school before he was sent to a 600-year-old British boys’ boarding school. He wanted to look at a different school experience with this new series, and he knew he would need some outside help. “I wanted to tell a story about education, class, and race in America,” says Whedon. “Given my Gilesian resume, I wasn’t about to attempt it alone. Erika is so smart, knowledgeable and engaging, she made the story her own even as we first discussed it. I knew she could reach the characters and their history in a way I couldn’t, yet still give Giles a place in this new (for him) world. She doesn’t disappoint.”

Erika Alexander is best known as an actress, appearing in TV shows like The Cosby Show and Living Single in the ’90s and working consistently ever since. (More recent gigs include series like Beyond and Bosch and a role in this year’s hit film, Get Out). “As a teenager, I grew up working in television so, ironically, I did not get a chance to watch much television,” says Alexander. “But my little sister, Myeashea, who’s a cultural anthropologist, and Whedon-mega-fan, went gaga for the series. When I told her I was working on a Dark Horse collaboration with Joss Whedon, a Rupert Giles spinoff, she went bananas. She told me everything I needed to know and more. I learned about the original Buffy series, but what I discovered was the pride of place it had in the zeitgeist of many young women and their sense of personal empowerment. These issues are very important to me. I knew then that it would be a good fit. And I am thrilled to be asked to be a part of it.”



A new setting means a new cast of characters, and Giles’ experience as a high school librarian gives him a different perspective than other students. “Giles will meet characters he’s familiar with,” says Alexander. “Characters loafing around at any high school: shy girls, bullies, crazy principals, mysterious janitors, loony students posing as a teachers’ aides, as well as a few surprises. But the most important character he’ll meet is himself. A version of himself he thought, hoped, he left long ago, will be there to greet him. And that Giles gives our Giles anxiety.”

“It’s terrific to be carving out a new space in the Buffyverse,” says Alexander. “It’s crazy cool to be entrusted with Joss’ signature series and Giles, a fan favorite. It’s also a little frightening and gives me some anxiety! Of course, I want to impress my publisher and editor, Freddye Miller at Dark Horse and the fantastic fans. But I want Joss to be happy and able to recognize his creation, as rendered, and realized in collaboration with my voice. That’s tricky stuff because Joss is a complex artist, storyteller and filmmaker. He’s also hella busy! He’s building scaffolding in record speed, while I hurry along trying to keep up with the pace of the towers construction and pick out the drapes.”

“Luckily for me, creating and writing my own comic, Concrete Park, with my genius partner, Tony Puryear, is a master class for this kind of high wire act,” says Alexander. “That said, co-writing is tough. Tony is a killer screenwriter and story man, who taught himself to illustrate comics. What you see in Concrete Park is our first time at it. We were proud of it but had problems finding the right publisher. Thankfully, Mike Richardson at Dark Horse, the Clive Davis of indie comics, recognized that we had something and gave us a shot. And now we’re on our 3rd volume, Concrete Park: Rock Steady. Except for our Dark Horse editor, Philip Simone, Tony and I are a two-man band and it made us up our game. It also gave me a front seat, and the responsibility, to have to come through for our creation. If it sucks, we only have ourselves to blame. But if it’s good, we have the world that gave us our personal diplomas in Hard Knocks University, icons like Mike Richardson and Joss Whedon, and my lovely mama to thank for it all.”

Whedon and Alexander’s story comes to life courtesy of artist Jon Lam, who showed a skill for drawing lively, fantastic school settings with his striking issue of Gotham Academy: Second Semester last year. “I feel that the tones for Gotham Academy and Giles have some similarities in that they involve supernatural elements centered around young adults, learning or relearning who they are as people and how they will face new incoming challenges,” says Lam. “That being said, I feel that in Gotham Academy, since there were uniforms, a lot of the character’s costumes were very similar, and in Giles everyone goes to a public school, so the outfits are a lot more personalized, which also adds another layer of challenge in design.

“For Giles, I think this is the first time I’ve been working on characters that have diverse body types,” says Lam. “It’s a new challenge that I’ve been having a lot of fun with. I think it’s also important to represent people of all sizes and backgrounds, especially in such a great universe.”

As a long-time fan of the Buffy franchise, Lam considers BTVS: Giles a dream project, and he’s thrilled to be working with Whedon and Alexander to expand this property. “It’s a huge honor to work with such talent,” says Lam. “It’s been surreal getting to put my stamp on something so great as the Buffyverse. The characters in this universe have inspired my imagination for years and I hope to contribute more designs and art to this fantastic world.”


Joss Whedon Writing New Buffy The Vampire Slayer Comic

Joss Whedon Is Writing A New Buffy The Vampire Slayer Comic

Buffy creator Joss Whedon is co-writing a four-issue miniseries that sends Rupert Giles back to high school.



by Tim Adams

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon is heading back to the Buffyverse to co-write a four-issue miniseries with Erika Alexander (Concrete Park), artist Jon Lam (Gotham Academy: Second Semester) and colorist Dan Jackson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11). Titled Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles, the Dark Horse Comics series will star the resurrected and de-aged Rupert Giles as he heads to high school in an inner city to investigate teachers that have mysteriously disappeared.

“Sunnydale was, apart from being on a hellmouth, a pretty privileged place,” Whedon told the AV Club. “Giles has never really dealt with the public school system as it exists for most kids. He’s never been to the city. Giles has always had the advantage of being a part of the system that educated him. He was taught to be a watcher in a family of watchers. His education was, in the grand British public school tradition, both expansive and parochial. In-depth views of tiny portions of the world. Of course, he walked over the awkward hormonal coals of adolescence—but now he knows more, and expects better of himself. His once-more 15-year-old body, however, is oblivious to his wisdom/cynicism/impatience.”

“Giles will meet characters he’s familiar with,” Alexander added. “Characters loafing around at any high school: shy girls, bullies, crazy principals, mysterious janitors, loony students posing as a teachers’ aides, as well as a few surprises. But the most important character he’ll meet is himself. A version of himself he thought, hoped, he left long ago, will be there to greet him. And that Giles gives our Giles anxiety.”

“For Giles, I think this is the first time I’ve been working on characters that have diverse body types,” Lam said. “It’s a new challenge that I’ve been having a lot of fun with. I think it’s also important to represent people of all sizes and backgrounds, especially in such a great universe.”

Giles Heads To School in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles First Look

Check out the first look at John Lam and Dan Jackson's art for the Joss Whedon and Erika Alexander co-scripted series

by Stephen Gerding



CBR has the exclusive first look at art from the upcoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles by artist Jon Lam (Gotham Academy: Second Semester) and colorist Dan Jackson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11). The four-issue Dark Horse Comics miniseries, scripted by Joss Whedon and Erika Alexander (Concrete Park), kicks off Feb. 28



“Sunnydale was, apart from being on a hellmouth, a pretty privileged place,” Whedon said when the miniseries was first announced. “Giles has never really dealt with the public school system as it exists for most kids. He’s never been to the city. Giles has always had the advantage of being a part of the system that educated him. He was taught to be a watcher in a family of watchers. His education was, in the grand British public school tradition, both expansive and parochial. In-depth views of tiny portions of the world. Of course, he walked over the awkward hormonal coals of adolescence—but now he knows more, and expects better of himself. His once-more 15-year-old body, however, is oblivious to his wisdom/cynicism/impatience.”

“Giles will meet characters he’s familiar with,” Alexander added. “Characters loafing around at any high school: shy girls, bullies, crazy principals, mysterious janitors, loony students posing as a teachers’ aides, as well as a few surprises. But the most important character he’ll meet is himself. A version of himself he thought, hoped, he left long ago, will be there to greet him. And that Giles gives our Giles anxiety.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles arrives in stores Feb. 28.
