Overview

When a rogue debutant Slayer begins to use her power for evil, Giles is forced to recruit the rebellious Faith, who isn't exactly known for her good deeds. Giles offers Faith a clean slate if she can stop this snooty Slayer from wreaking total havoc—that is, if Buffy doesn't beat her to it.

Georges Jeanty (The American Way) remains at the top of his game as series artist, and Whedon continues as Executive Producer in this direct follow-up to Season Seven of the smash-hit TV series.

* Eisner award-winning writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y:The Last Man, Ex Machina) tackles Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight.

* Collecting issue #6-10 of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight series.

Brian K. Vaughan comes aboard and the story and dialog kepp clicking. Faith returns for a seriously "un-slayer" like mission but she's perfect for it. Seeing some things fro her point of view is great. We also get some answers to some nagging little questions. Great stuff!

Love that cover. Another good volume. Liking the pace so far. Should have read this series sooner.

Eh, it's ok. *Book source ~ Library Something big is brewing and while Buffy is working on figuring out who or what the new Big Bad is all about, Giles and Faith have some work to do elsewhere. Ok, first I have to say that the cover on this one is not flattering. At all. I don’t like it. Buffy and Faith look like zombies. And Faith looks especially bad. While she’s not my favorite character (not by a long shot) I think she could look better than that, with her mouth hanging open she looks like she should have some drool dangling off her lip. Ewww. Anyway, the rest of the illustrations aren’t bad. Faith doesn’t really look much like Faith, but whatever. I’m not pleased about Giles working with Faith, but I’m also pissed at him for trying to kill Spike in Season 7, so he can stay away for now. There’s really not much here advancing the Twilight part of the story, but it does address some of the problems of what happened when Willow did the magic mojo on the scythe, turning all the potentials into slayers and then those same new slayers having no one to guide them. There’s only so many Sunnydale alum to go around and with over 1800 (approximately) slayers out there it was only a matter of time before some of these newbies turned to the dark side. So…this is getting interesting.

This volume is a stellar followup to the first one (Season 8 Volume 1). Brian K. Vaughan (see also Y: The Last Man, my all time favorite comic) is a fantastic writer and keeps true to the essence of the TV show characters and story arc. Joss Whedon's story is good too, though not as engaging as the longer/main story. The artwork is good too (and the covers are stunning). Between S8 Vol 1 and S8 Vol 2, I am definitely hooked on the comics, even though at the end of the TV show, I couldn't imagine a better ending or any followup.
