Buffyverse Comic Reviews interview with Scott Tipton. Scott chats about his history with IDW and Angel as well as his new project, an "A Hole in the World" and "Shells" 5-part adaptation, launching in November.

Scott will be joined by artist Elena Casagrande.

It is nice to be reminded the Scott Tipton did the spotlight comics that I had enjoyed, but I really don't get the purpose of doing comics of actual shows we saw with the actors we love. It just seems like a faint copy of what we already saw at it's best, with nothing new to say or add to the original.
That was a great interview.

I'm glad Shells is being included in this adaptation and it will be five issues.

I always consider two part episodes to really be one big one so AHTW/Shells both being adapted is perfect.
I agree with embers. I don't really get the purpose of doing this. It doesn't mean it shouldn't be done for those who do 'get it', but it does mean I won't buy it.
embers, Bluey, I'm with ya.
That Wesley spotlight comic looks like it might be something I'd read.
Menomegirl, I particularly loved the Wesley and the Gunn spotlight comics, oh and the Illyria one was really cool too... as was the Connor one. Basically I appreciated the secondary characters getting the spotlight!
I don't understand the purpose of the comic adaptations either. I loved seeing our favourite actors react to each other on the actual show, I don't see how transferring that to comic form does anything.
I wasn't sure that I would be interested in these adaptations, either... until my comic store stuck issue #2 of "Smile Time" in my pull box. I enjoyed it well enough that I collected all three. I guess, for me, it's a pleasant reminder of the episode - more tangible than a memory, more easily accessible than a DVD. Also, I think that I do have a fondness for seeing things recreated in different mediums, so I'm probably more inclined towards this type of project than others may be.
