My Buffy thoughts got me started on reading Season 8, which was published in comic book form and which we’ve been purchasing over the past few months in bound issues. I’m on book 3, which I believe is issues 11-15. The story is good, the characters remain consistent, and if you’ve been watching the show recently, you can hear the actors speaking the lines.

Also, some fun references back to the show, like Xander working out in a Sunnydale Swim Team t-shirt.

I would recommend the comics to anyone who enjoyed the show and wants to know what happens next. They’re currently issuing Season 10, along with spin-off titles for Angel and Faith, and it looks like a new spin-off title for Spike, written by James Marsters, which is just awesome.
