Book Description

25 April 2003 Buffy the Vampire Slayer
On a summer vacation with Willow and Tara, Buffy's younger sister Dawn finds herself drawn into a bitter argument between locals and loggers over the destruction of a nearvy forest. But when a logger is found dead - in extremely mysterious circumstances - Willow and Tara realise that there's magic at work, and resolve to investigate...leading them deep into the woods, and to a terrifying encounter with a forest demon who's decided it's time to fight back against the tree-cutters! Now Willow and Tara will need to use all their wits - and their magical abilities - to prevent all out war, not to mention looking after Dawn! This collection also includes the one-shot story WannaBlessedBe and a short story from Dark Horse Extra!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful collection 17 Oct 2003
By JB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This collection contains three stories , "WannaBlessedBe", "Wilderness" and "Demonology Menagerie".
The first one, "WannaBlessedBe" is five by five! This story is written by two of my favorite people, Chris Golden & Amber Benson. I loved the way they handled Willow & Tara's relationship, very subtle, very BtVS 4th/ fifth season.(This story takes place in the fifth season.) What I also loved about this story was the way it was drawn (done by Terry Moore, Strangers in Paradise genius).Beautifully done.5/5
Oh, and check out Tara reading "Strangers in Paradise"!
The second story, "Wilderness" was awesome! It takes place in the sixth season. I love this action-packed story of Willow, Tara and Dawn taking a fieldtrip. Also written by Amber Benson and Chris Golden. The graphics aren't as beautifully done as in the previous story, but it totally suits the story. 5/5
The third instalment is a short story written by Andi Watson. It's a cute story that takes place in the fifth season. 3.5/5
I recommend this collection to any Buffy fan or comics fan, especially if you're a fan of Willow and Tara.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willow and Tara in comicbookland 7 Mar 2010
By Willow Rosenberg-Maclay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This comic is fantastic. it's adorable and really embodies the willow & tara relationship. it comes in a nice thick paperback-ish format which was not what i expected as I thought it would be more of a thin, regular comic book sized book. the fact that amber benson co-wrote the story makes it that much more authentic. the product arrived in mint condition, with a plastic cover, no bend marks or any indication that it had ever been opened before.
this is a must have item for any willow&tara fan.
4.0 out of 5 stars A decent collection 6 July 2014
By J. Binkerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Play With Fire is a collection of shorter stories from all over the place–special issues, one-shots, annuals, even TV Guide. As such, its somewhat inconsistent, and I’ve chosen to handle each story as a separate mini-review within this post. A couple of these overlap with the later collection Food Chain for some incomprehensible reason. None of these are officially canon, since Whedon didn’t have any direct involvement, but they don’t contradict the official canon unless otherwise noted. I’ll make note of where they fall in the timeline, as well as where you can find them aside from this collection.

Stinger (Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Wizard #1/2)
Written by Christopher Golden
Art by Hector Gomez.
Rating: ****
Synopsis: Xander is forced to fight a local bully, but both are surprised by a nasty scorpionesque demon that feeds on those who enjoy inflicting fear and pain.
Review: Well-written, but with mediocre art. The characters sound like themselves, and I enjoyed the story, but the art kinda bugs me. Hector Gomez also did the art for The Dust Waltz, and I wasn’t a fan there either. Xander’s look is a little bit too “square-jawed handsome hero” for my taste–the draw of the character is that he doesn’t look like that, but is a hero when the chips are down nevertheless.
Continuity: Since Cordelia and Xander are dating but Faith is nowhere to be seen, this happens between the second and third episodes of the third season of Buffy.
Where to find it: This story is one of the harder ones to find. To my knowledge, it was only reprinted in this collection, Food Chain, and Buffy Omnibus Vol. IV.

Play With Fire (Dark Horse Extra #11-16)
Written by Christopher Golden
Art by Hector Gomez
Rating: ****
Synopsis: Buffy is out patrolling with Willow and Giles, who is growing concerned with Willow’s dabbling in the Dark Arts. Events soon provide them with even more material for this discussion….
Review: Not outstanding, but not bad. The characters all seemed like themselves, though Giles is a bit more clumsy here than he should be. Staid British librarian or no, Giles can kick @$$ when he wants to. The root of this story is particularly interesting since it was published long before the events of season 6, where Willow’s magical abilities grow out of control. The art was okay, and Xander was nowhere to be seen so Gomez’s art didn’t really annoy me as much this time. It’s still not up to the regular standard I expect from Dark Horse, but it’s consistent with his other Buffy material so I feel like harping on it is getting unfair.
Continuity: This is set sometime during Buffy Season 3, with no real way to be more specific. Since I think Faith would have come along if she were in the picture, I set this between the second and third episodes as well.
Where to find it: Again, this is rare. Looks like it’s only included here and in Buffy Omnibus Vol. III.

The Latest Craze (Buffy The Vampire Slayer Annual ’99)
Written by Christopher Golden & Tom Sniegoski
Art by Cliff Richards
Rating: *****
Synopsis: There’s a new craze sweeping Sunnydale High–Hooligans, little stuffed monsters in the vain of Furby but twice as creepy and a hundred times more kleptomaniacal.
Review: This was a fun tale in the vein of Gremlins. References to Furby were in evidence as well, which makes sense. The art was excellent, as should be expected from Cliff Richards.
Continuity: I put this one just after Buffy S03E11: Gingerbread, given the relationships in evidence, the presence of “Pez Witch,” and the lack of Wesley. It’s a bit close to Ethan Rayne’s last appearance (Buffy S03E06: Band Candy) but that really just makes the jokes about him being a glutton for punishment even funnier.
Where to find it: This story is reprinted here, in Food Chain, Buffy omnibus Vol. III, and online via the BBC (link).

Dance With Me (TV Guide Special)
Written by Christopher Golden
Art by Hector Gomez
Rating: ****
Synopsis: Buffy skips a school dance to go out patrolling, only to run into the student she turned down eight times. Seems he knew she was the slayer, and got himself vamped in order to force her to pay attention….
Review: Again, I have no problem with Christoper Golden’s writing. This was incredibly short at five pages, but nevertheless captured the characters and their interactions pretty well. The art wasn’t bad, although I’m still not a fan of how Hector Gomez draws Xander.
Continuity: The credits page places this during Buffy‘s third season. Based on Cordelia and Faith being absent, I place it late in the season, arbitrarily placing it between episodes 15 and 16. Honestly, though, there’s nothing in the story itself to say that this isn’t happening during the first or second seasons.
Where to find it: This one is really rare. So far as I can tell, its only reprinted here and in Buffy Omnibus Vol. III.

Bad Dog (Buffy The Vampire Slayer Annual ’99)
Written by Doug Petrie
Art by Ryan Sook
Rating: *****
Synopsis: During the full moon, Buffy finds Oz’s cage smashed and both Oz and Willow missing. Fearing the worst, Buffy and Angel set out to track them down….but the real enemy may not be Oz after all.
Review: Doug Petrie’s work is always spot-on, probably a benefit of being one of the writers for the actual show. Ryan Sook’s work here shows some improvement over his Spike & Dru stuff, but is not yet up to the level of awesomeness he achieved on Ring Of Fire.
Continuity: I set this tale just after Buffy S03E18: Earshot for no good reason whatsoever. Wesley is nowhere to be seen, but he could just be conveniently absent for the day. Plus, at this point his character is so useless that I wouldn’t put it past Giles and the others to simply exclude him.
Where to find it: This story is reprinted here, in Food Chain, Buffy omnibus Vol. IV, and online via the BBC (link).

CONTENT: Vampire & Werewolf violence consistent with the show. Brief sexual innuendo and flirting, but nothing explicit. Mild profanity. Buffyverse vampires, which could be considered occultic if you wanted to go there.
4.0 out of 5 stars Loved Wannablessedbe but The Wilderness not as much 2 Mar 2013
By Timber Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love having Willow and Tara venturing off in a comic together!

Wannablessedbe:
was true to the characters as seen on tv. The artwork as well as the personality seemed to fit Willow and Tara perfectly.

The Wilderness:
Willow would NEVER dress in a half shirt!!!! The artist clearly has never seen the show or didn't care enough to honor that. The only time we saw Willow's tummy was during the halloween episode when she was going to dress hot but then chose to put a sheet on and be a ghost instead. (and of course the one where the gnarl demon tried to eat her but not the same)

I didn't understand the whole concept of the villain, something-jack at all. The comic would have been better if the art work had been true to the series.
