I almost didn’t bother to read A DARK PLACE because I absolutely could not stand the whole Spike and the alien bugs plot line that first popped up in Season 8. I decided to give it a shot and, ugh, Spike’s still with his alien bug pals. Blah.
Genre: Graphic Novel
When the world is as lush and mystical as Patricia Briggs has created for the Alpha and Omega series, it just begs to be adapted to a visual form. This graphic novelization (which includes issues 5-8 of the comics) is once again brought to vivid life by David Lawrence, Todd Herman, and Jenny Frison. It’s an excellent team, as this volume, is even more beautiful than the first.
On last week’s episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY, Leonard decides Buffy is the perfect show for he and Penny to share. At the end of an episode Penny says it was “Cute”. This really has nothing to do with the review, but the scene was serious deja vu for me. I can’t count how many times I’ve tried to get my fiancé to watch Buffy. It’s gotten to the point that I’m starting to take it personally.
I don’t think I’ve ever replied to an email faster than I did when Abigail sent one out asking if anyone wanted to review comics set in the Buffyverse. I’ve been a fan of the show since the first episode aired and I may be a little (scarily, if you ask my fiancé) obsessed.
