Faith! And Giles! Working together?!

This big bad must be nutso if he WANTS to rekindle the Buffy/Faith hate-fest. Poor Lady Genevieve for getting caught in the middle of it all.

But that last bit at the end with Willow and Buffy. Huh? Willow relived the past? She changed the last? Or the future? I don't understand what that was about. ( )

The plot was more interesting than the previous volume — especially the Faith storyline — but I wish the author/illustrator didn't feel so compelled to come up with the weakest excuses (or none at all) to portray the female characters with increased bust sizes, uncharacteristic cleavage, and even nude. :/

I feel about 13 reading it, but I will stay up until done (luckily flashlights are no longer required). ( )

Faith. And Giles. And Amy. And Willow. This was a great set of comics. It collects issues #6-10 in a story arc that has Giles sending Faith to investigate a slayer who is a little insane and being manipulated into killing girls. When it comes to the hard calls, Giles sends who he knows can deal with it--and that's not Buffy this time. Faith knows what it's like to kill and knows what it's like to be manipulated by a man she trusts.

Considering this volume was dark, it'll be interesting to see where the series goes from here. ( )

Something big is brewing and while Buffy is working on figuring out who or what the new Big Bad is all about, Giles and Faith have some work to do elsewhere.

Ok, first I have to say that the cover on this one is not flattering. At all. I don’t like it. Buffy and Faith look like zombies. And Faith looks especially bad. While she’s not my favorite character (not by a long shot) I think she could look better than that, with her mouth hanging open she looks like she should have some drool dangling off her lip. Ewww. Anyway, the rest of the illustrations aren’t bad. Faith doesn’t really look much like Faith, but whatever. I’m not pleased about Giles working with Faith, but I’m also pissed at him for trying to kill Spike in Season 7, so he can stay away for now. There’s really not much here advancing the Twilight part of the story, but it does address some of the problems of what happened when Willow did the magic mojo on the scythe, turning all the potentials into slayers and then those same new slayers having no one to guide them. There’s only so many Sunnydale alum to go around and with over 1800 (approximately) slayers out there it was only a matter of time before some of these newbies turned to the dark side. So…this is getting interesting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159307963X, Paperback)

Eisner award-winning writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) tackles Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight with "No Future for You." When a rogue debutant Slayer begins to use her power for evil, Giles is forced to recruit the rebellious Faith, who isn't exactly known for her good deeds. Giles offers Faith a clean slate if she can stop this snooty Slayer from wreaking total havoc - that is, if Buffy doesn't beat her to it. Georges Jeanty (The American Way) remains at the top of his game as series artist, and Whedon stays on as "Executive Producer" in this direct follow-up to Season Seven of the smash-hit TV series.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:51 -0400)

The adventures of Buffy after the events covered by the television program, as she faces a mysterious threat called "Twilight," while Giles and Faith deal with a rogue slayer.
