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 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 remaining comics after watching this if you want to complete the season. (I'd start from season 8 volume 5 after this if you want to do that)
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 :)
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.
Its been a long time since the tv series has ended and reading some previous reviews i think some people have forgotten what Buffy was actually like, this motion comic does have some really silly storylines and at times even a little annoying but the same could be said about all the original series on tv, the true strenght of Buffy was always the charactors that we all loved irraguardless of what silly plots were going on.
I found this to be a welcome addition to my Buffy collection, some times silly some times gold, always entertaining and a little crazy.
as an artist i found the annimation visuals to be quite stunning with a great use of color and layers.
it is unfortunate that there has been no bluray release however bluray would not really add anything to it other than the disks being stronger and more sctratch resiliant. it wont enhance the the definaition nor the sound, it is afterall a motion comic
