(SPOILER) Buffy Season 8 #7 Reviewed @ LYS@D. Leave Your Spandex @ The Door promptly grants an extended (and insightful) review of the 7th issue of the Buffy Season 8 comic.

With Briak K. Vaughan scripting - the only man who would deserve to be writing for Season 8 without being an 'original Buffy series writing team' alumnus, methinks - and Georges Jeanty drawing, the 7th issue of season 8 was bound to be a treat.

And, as was expected, M.V. of LYS@D reviews it - in depth and in coolness - proving once again that he's one of the good ones.

Check out his scripture, and check out the comic if you haven't already!

See, that guy praises the lack of budget constraints due to the medium shift from TV to comics as the best thing to happen to the franchise, whereas I was just saying on another thread that it's actually created too strong of an emotional "displacement" as far as I'm concerned. It doesn't feel like the same show precisely BECAUSE the budget has shifted so dramatically.

On well, it's still great, just not... perfect.
Shouldn't this get a spoiler tag?
Aye, the rule of thumb with comic book reviews is that they get a spoiler tag for about a week after they get released.

Also I want to know if Raden is a tribute to me. That Belfast mention did make me wonder ;).
I think Raden must be a tribute to you, Simon, because everyone else's comic book says Roden. ;)
Isn't it "Roden"?
Aye it's Roden.
... I just read issue 7 today and /totally/ thought Fairuza Balk for the role of Gigi!
