(SPOILER) Scott Allie Slayalive Q/A For Buffy #23. The Buffy editor did another fan Q/A for the latest issue.Has some new spoilers revealed for upcoming issues.

Am i the only one that doesn't see the point in these? It's always just people asking for spoilers and Scott saying "Can't say" "We'll see" "You'll find out about that real soon" etc.

And why the hell did people ask Serenity and Omnibus questions in a Q&A for S8 #23? o_O
Well,these chats are useful for clearing up questions about things in the issue.And even though he doesn't reveal big spoilers,he does reveal new info about upcoming issues in these Q/A's.Some new stuff was revealed in this Q/A for example.
More not much.

While the questions center around Buffy, it's certainly not exclusive to that. The Serenity and Omnibus questions are relevant ones to ask the Dark Horse editor. And personally I enjoy better understanding the process behind the scenes with Whedon. It's extra info. It's not at all necessary.

And the point? It's fun. For others it's fun, that is.
I enjoy these Q&A's immensely. Mr Allie is a very smart and funny guy.
I enjoy them, too, and I hope he continues to do them.
@Emmie: If there's gonna be questions that aren't about that issue allowed, why not just call it something like "Scott Allie Q&A" and leave off the issue number?

And how is questions being asked without proper answers being given fun? Spoilers are fun, "Can't say"'s aren't
Dawnlover90, they're called that because he does a Q&A after the release of every issue. The issue is usually a main topic, hence the title, but seeing as it's a very loose and fun thing, they can go off topic.

And it's not like the guy says "Can't say" to everything. There has been a lot of cool information given during these Q&As.

Yeah I don't get why people are being so negative either?

We actually learnt quite a lot in this latest Q/A. We now know we can expect Giles/Faith showing up again in 3 months, that Warren and Andrew will indeed cross paths, that Amy/Warren are going to be right in the mix of it very soon and that there's a story behind Twilight's minions learning the location for the new slayer HQ when they invaded Satsu's mind ect. I don't know about anyone else but I didn't know any of that before this Q/A. Did you?

patxshand - that was out of order. We don't need to descend to insults.

Still, reviewing your previous comments, DawnLover90, I'm seeing a pretty consistent thread of negativity. You might want to think twice before posting nothing but complaints.
Gotcha, edited.

We hold the Q&A in celebration of the release of each Season 8 issue - the Q&A's coincide with the issues and that is the main draw for questions. And for all the times we get a "can't say" answer, we certainly get a lot of spoilers that slip through the cracks.
"There may be demons involved. Magic as well, in some cases ..."

I laughed at that. From now all, that's my response to all the "but how could X happen?" questions
I enjoy these Q&A's with Scott and the others who have participated and appreciate the time and work involved in putting them together. I don't like to be spoiled, so I appreciate the no spoiler rule. I think it's fun learning more about the current issue, or past plot points, and getting gentle hints as to upcoming plots.
Twilight's minions learning the location for the new slayer HQ when they invaded Satsu's mind ect.
I got that when I read the comic, but the comment that there's a "story behind" it leads me to think there was more to it than just getting the location.
I don't get why there are always so many questions about the details of the plot for the publisher of the comic, when he's not one of the writers. Yes, he's seen some future issues and has talked with the writers, but why would anyone think that he'd know what [random character] meant or was thinking in any particular panel more than anyone else who read it, or that he'd be able to say with any authority what went on between issues or between seasons? While some things may have been covered in writer/publisher discussions, most of those questions would only be known by the writers themselves. Why not give him more publisher-ish questions?

I'm with you there. Plot minutiae doesn't seem like the best way to go unless you're asking the writer specifically. I try to focus my questions on areas that play to Scott's strengths as editor.
