(SPOILER) Expanded Preview of Buffy Season 8 #26. Contains two additional pages not included in the 3-pg preview posted last week.

Oooh, Faith & Giles! Yay! But... isn't that bunker supposed to be all blown up? And then have concrete poured into it? Just sayin...

Still cool to point in the comics and know exactly where they are. :)
im excited to have everyone toghter...my only real complaint for season 8( well other than it not being a tv show) is that the characters have drifted sooo far apart from eachother

its gonna be nice having alll the scoobies back toghter
Woohoo, Faith and Giles!
I only get the three page preview when I click the link. No Faith or Giles. I don't get it.
Me too, I'm only getting the first 3 pages
I'm also not seeing the extra pages. Plus: why's Doug Petrie listed as the author on the cover, and not Jane Espenson?
Korkster: I live just outside of Berlin, Germany, and we're going to give them the benefit of the doubt that it is not supposed to be that bunker, but some different, smaller one that everybody somehow missed, exect the Watchers. Oh yeah, happens all the time. In fact, every time I dig a hole in my garden, I wonder, gee, will it be crates of Nazi gold or just another rusty wonder weapon? The battery acid from the buried death ray generators always turns the grass yellow ...

Okay, I can live with long-lost bunkers. It's goofy enough as a plot device, if a bit predictable. I'm just happy the Buffyverse-Germans have finally discovered cars and modern buildings. And even electricity! Can't wait to see if they are dressed like normal people, too. Maybe we'll have a McDonald's in the background, or one of our thousands of Starbucks?
Ditto not seeing the additional pages. Is there a trick?
Looks like they just took it down. That's a mega-shame, they were good pages.
I didn't even notice that it said Doug Petrie, what the hey?
You can still see the pages here at SlayAlive: http://slayalive.com/index.cgi?board=buffyseason8&action=display&thread=5180&page=1

Just click on the "Spoiler" button for all 5 pages in thumbnails.

EDIT: Anyone notice that Faith is wearing the same t-shirt she was in #24?

Great to see Faith and Giles back.
I really want the gang back together. I know part of growing up is growing apart, but some things can stay the same right? Or am I just holding onto the past too hard and need to let go?

Oo! Gold! Yipee! Treasure hunt. :D

Well, scotws, I'm okay with it, even if it is now "mythical" in our existence. But, hey, we got people flying around like fish and vampires being accepted into society... it's not like this is a work of facts. ;) Just tickled me that I actually stood on top of Giles' head. Speaking of Giles, digging the new digs.

And this actually brings up an interesting parallel- can this Super-Being Army driven into hiding literally underground really be that similar to the Nazis? At first response it's a "Nah!", but then... "Maybe?" I don't know, but I sort of get the feeling that the parallel is intentional...

And Starbucks? Pfft. scotws, if you want to enjoy breakfast, I highly recommend Dunkin' Donuts. I know they have one in the train station. Delicious! :)

I noticed too, wenxina. They don't seem to be the best dressed; both of their attires are tattered. They look unwashed, like they've been on the run since the last time we've seen them.
Oh awesome! I was so excited to see more Faith and Giles. The whole urgent vibe this issue has going on is what Predators and Prey should have had. I can't wait to read this whole issue, it's looking amazing.
This arc is shaping up to be grand.
Hey, at least you Germans have other people in your country. At the minute, Scotland is populated solely by vampires and weird forest beasties. The rest of the UK seems stuck in the 60's apart from a peculiar obsession with Amy Winehouse (if I was going to pick one thing to change about the 60's it probably wouldn't have been the music).
thats cool, but I'm still waiting for the yaks.
I wish DC was as awesome as it looks on Bones. I always want to move there when I watch that show.
