Proving once and for all that you can’t keep a good Slayer down, Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight Motion Comic picks up where the smash hit TV show left off. Based on the Dark Horse comic book series, these eye-popping motion comic adventures breathe new life into the Buffyverse for long-time fans and new “watchers” alike.

The Hellmouth may have been destroyed, but the world still needs saving and Buffy Summers is back at her butt-kicking, demon-slaying best to do the job. She’s relocated her base of operations to a castle in Scotland to lead the Scooby Gang, including hundreds of newly activated Slayers scattered around the world to battle the supernatural forces of evil. But in the wake of Sunnydale’s destruction, the U.S. government thinks Buffy and her legions of followers have grown too powerful and are now terrorist threats. Meanwhile, a seemingly unstoppable group of Japanese vampires hatch a nefarious plot, while the biggest, baddest Big Bad of them all, Twilight, is on a mission to destroy every Slayer on Earth!

I wasn't too sure about the idea of a motion comic and I had also seen many people reject this DVD because of the voice actors.
I had to buy it and see for myself and was very pleasantly suprised. The animation and effects are very good. The voice cast is not the cast from the series, but they have picked some very good voice over actors to do it. Xander and Dawn's actors really capture their characters, and the actress voicing Faith sounds so much like Eliza Dushku, I had to check the credits before I was sure it wasn't actually her! They also use some very recognisable background music from the series, as well as the awesome opening music from the series.

Motion comics do take a bit of getting used to, but it's definitely worth giving it a try. I found this to be a very enjoyable way of viewing the start of season 8.

NOTE: Notice I say START of season 8. Amazon seems to have changed the product title since, but I think it originally just said "Buffy season 8 motion comic" at first and people bought it thinking it would be the complete season. This contains 19 issues (Season 8 consists of 40 in total). There is no word of another DVD release, so you may have to purchase and read the comics after watching this if you want to.

Bonus features include: Interviews at Comic Con, including Buffy writer Jane Espenson. Buffy Trivia Experience: basically just bringing up bits of relevant trivia about the series as you watch the episodes. Comic cover gallery. And the test pilot.

I recommend giving it a try :)

Fans of this long running series may feel - enough is enough. And even if they want to buy the animated version of Season 8 on BLU RAY and live in the UK or Europe - they can't.

This 20th Century Fox title is REGION A LOCKED - so it will not play on our machines unless their chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

Check your player's acceptability before you buy this title on BLU RAY - or chose the DVD option instead (multi-region players on that format are cheap and plentiful)...

This was a pretty hushed up project if you ask me - I didn't hear about here in the UK until the Season 8 comics had stopped. Non the less, I really enjoyed these episodes. It's not exactly the same as the live action series and some of the plots are totally OTT (no budget you see), but it really fills in the gap as to what happened after season 8. The characters look exactly like their live action actors & actresses to that's a bonus.

There are only 19 parts in this DVD so I'm wondering what they're doing with the rest? Over all there are 40 comics.
Yeah, that's a lot, but here's how I view the series. Each story arch is an episode - so for example the first 4 eps on this DVD are "The Long Way Home: Part 1" Then part 2, part 3 etc. If you just see all the "Long Way Home" eps as one big episode then it makes viewing it a lot better.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well I was quite reluctant about buying this season, but I was so curious and I just had to have it!! Ok soooo...the story-line in great, in true Joss Whedon style, but I got a bit confused about who was saying what due to the fact that the voices are not those of the original cast members. So add that to the fact that in some scenes I wasn't sure who was who and you get quite a mix up!! But all in all once you get used to the voices and moving pictures, you're back into the Buffy world! But this is only for real devoted Buffy fans, those who know and love the charactors, because for anyone else I think it would probably be well, just too crazy! So if you watched this show and you loved it and you want to know what happened after the destruction of Sunnydale, then you'll want to have this 8th season, but if you're not into comics (...and I'm certainly not) it will probably be a bit confusing to follow in the beginning but I found it was worth it!

This item arrived on time and with both discs. the episodes are great, once you get used to the different voices for our well loved characters. The extra features were nice too. All in all a great addition for anyone who calls themselves a Buffy fan. I can't wait for the next part and am hoping they bring out one for Angel soon. If you loved Buffy and enjoyed the comics then you will really like this set.
