(SPOILER) Spike leaves Buffy for solo adventure. Interview with the writer of Spike's Buffy Season 9 miniseries.

Just beat me to posting
Can I just say I'm ECSTATIC about this mini series? I don't think I've ever been more excited about a comic before. New female demon character? Wooo hoooo
Great interview. I'm also super-excited about this mini.
So far so good. Keeping my fingers crossed. It helps me to know that the writer was already a fan, I think that is important.
It does sound like an interesting mini series, but I can't get past the spaceship and the bugs...I just can't do it. The interviewer seems to be a little hung up on that plot point as well. It's just so inherently against the world of Buffy and what we learned about it during the 7 years on television that unfortunately it's a deal breaker for me. I don't think anything during the show's time on air ever suggested this would be something in the realm of the universe that Joss and Co. created. I get it's a fantasy universe, but it's just way too strange and out of place for me.
Very enjoyable interview. I think I'm going to enjoy this series, after all.
But they're NICE bugs. Okay, they eat stakes, but...
What I find interesting is that of all the 'canon' relationships in which we have seen Spike over the years, this is the first one that looks like an actual 'family' (loosely defined) that are seeming to put his wishes/needs first. That's not a bad place for him to be, particularly if he is feeling emotionally vulnerable right now, even if they are bugs.
A very long month ahead. Can't wait
