Book Description

5 Jun 2012 Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Series creator Joss Whedon brought Buffy the Vampire Slayer back to life with this comics-only follow-up to Season 7 of the television show. This hardcover edition contains the first two arcs of the series, plus two one-shots, written by Joss Whedon and Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Runaways), with art by the acclaimed Georges Jeanty! After the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers - newly legion - have gotten organized, but it's not long before new and old enemies begin popping up. Buffy, Xander, Willow, and a very different Dawn are introduced to the season's big bad, Twilight, and are only beginning to understand the incredible reach of this mysterious threat. Meanwhile, rebel Slayer Faith teams up with Giles to handle a menace on the other side of the Atlantic. It's a dirty job, and Faith is just the girl to do it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buffy's back! 29 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I discovered through Big Bang Theory that Buffy continued life in a comic book! After finding this out I knew I had to find it being a massive fan of the show.
This book is VERY tall and VERY thick. It is beautifully presented and the artwork is amazing. The story is really engaging and has the same humour as the TV show. Can't recommend enough if ur a Buffy fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars mmmmmm! 26 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wow this is so shiny & wonderful! I did buy the paperbacks but sold them so I could get these. I'm eagerly awaiting Vol 2 & 3 due out later this year. I love the size of this book. The graphics are lush and it's a definite collectors piece. Well worth the money & a wonderful way to review the initial comics. Can't wait for season 9 in hardback now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny. 18 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is simply stunning. I held off buying the comics for economic and storage reasons and boy am I glad I waited for this.

This hardback book is beautiful. The quality is excellent. The artists chosen to depict the Buffyverse got it spot on in their own styles. I was utterly absorbed in the artwork from the front cover (a surprise pop-art style profile of Buffy) to the notes at the end. I devoured the story and have been looking back through the book with glee, drinking in everything over again.

If you are considering whether to buy this or not, don't hesitate, it is a worthy addition to any collection, and I can't wait for book 2. As for the price, I would happily have paid double and still thought it worth it!

In Whedon we trust!

4.0 out of 5 stars rewatched the series how many times? 7 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I like some graphic novels and I like the Buffy series a lot. I have rewatched the box set so many times and then seeing this on Amazon I thought it has to be worth a go. The hardback book is pretty impressive with the first 10 issues on thick paper, and 3 more books make the full collection of 4. Not a criticism but personally I wish the book was a little smaller, its just so big.

I have opted for the 4 star "I like it", and I read it all through quite quickly and then the next morning started again, so it was certainly enjoyable. Much like the series itself it is a guilty pleasure, it is not on a par with (what I consider) the best of the graphic novels (Alan Moore, Brian Talbot etc), but then like the TV series it is something you can just relax with an enjoy.

I did initially think to myself that I would not rush to buy volumes 2 to 4, but as I write this I think I am changing my mind and I will try to pick them up when I can afford them.

4.0 out of 5 stars very high quality 6 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Lovely high quality bound versions of the comics; these are definitely show-pieces for your bookcase, and a pleasure to read; I can definitely recommend these versions over the individual comics or other bindings.

I'm not really sold on the story; it's not grabbed me the same way that the TV show did, and at times it feels like they're just doing things for the sake of it, given that there's no SFX budget constraints, rather than for any valid story reason (Dawn's arc, in particular, feels completely unnecessary and silly). I understand that season 9 settles down a bit, given which I'm happy to own and read these first.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this. Superb Buffy <3 27 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Buffy the show was awesome, that is true.

The comic is just as awesome. Art is nice and vivid, and drawn very well, a lot of the time the characters look how they should and closely resemble the actors which is great, the dialog is hilarious, witty , and dramatic when necessary.

must buy, Oh and they are freaking huge which is a bonus, so much content (drools)

This is so, so good - really really well written - it just comes alive as you're reading it. The art is sometimes a little patchy, but the words never let you down.
