Something to Sing About

After a two-year absence, there's finally word on her comeback. And my panties are somersaulting. This blog is, after all, named after one of the songs in the musical episode.

Thank you, Joss.



From comics she was born, and to comics she shall return: Buffy the Vampire Slayer's post-cancellation adventures will soon begin anew -- penned by Joss Whedon himself -- in the pages of Dark Horse Comics. Here's an exclusive cover image (by artist Georges Jeanty) from issue No. 1. As you can see, she's kept in shape during her hiatus. (Dark Horse will debut No. 1 at Comic-Con this week.)

This isn't Buffy's first foray into comics. And it remains to be seen if it ranks anywhere near Joss Whedon's best foray into comics: the all-too-brief "future slayer" saga Fray, which follows the dystopic advetures of Buffster's 24th-century successor. (Some will persuasively argue that this is Joss' best comics effort. I will counter with a spin move and the old axe-to-the-head. So watch it.)

So what's going on in the extended Buffyverse? Well, you may recall the show ended with the creation of an army of Slayers. Now they're organized, and the tide has turned in favor of the good guys. Ah, but you know how much Whedon hates winners: Soon an "old enemy" surfaces (Dark Horse is cagey on Big Bad's identity), and Dawn starts "experiencing serious growing pains." I hope that means the Scoobies will be fighting a mutant, undead Alan Thicke.

Kala ko Joss Stone.

Hehe.Joke.

Seriously, OK yung art. At sana at par sa writing ng Astonishing X Men. I should check out Fray. Tanong ko lang - - - comics ba 'to o "grafiction"? :)


Thor, pano nakalusot si Jenya? :)

Haha. Funny ka ha. :-)

Comics yung Fray. We have the trade paperback edition, kaya graphic novel na siya. Hehe. Though mas maganda pa rin ang story arc ng Astonishing X-men.

Si Brother Eye ata yang si Jenya. Ngayon ko lang binabasa ang Infinity Crisis, salamat sa bagyo.
