Buffy Lives!

Today I stood outside a comic book shop, waiting for it to open, so I could pick up a copy of the newly arrived Buffy comic book. The store was getting only 30 copies of the 2nd edition of issue # 1. They had previously got only 10 copies of the 1st edition (and those went pretty fast). Apparently, the 1st edition printing already sold over 100,000 copies.
The next issues, # 2, will be out April 4, 2007.

If you didn't know, Joss Whedon, creator of the hit tv-series Buffy The Vampire Slayer (that lasted for 7 seasons), has decided to continue writing and producing a season 8 in comic book form.

I read it and it wasn't bad.
You can tell the writing is Joss, so fans will not be disappointed. Some interesting new things come up that will leave you wanting more, especially if you are a jonesing Buffy fan. The story carries on from where they left off at the end of season 7. "To be continued" of course.
