Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8: #6 No Future for You

The second arc of our bestselling Season Eight starts here. Top creator Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man; Pride of Baghdad; Lost) takes over writing duties and dives headlong into what Faith is up to-infiltration, assassination, and nonstop Cleveland. The fugitive Slayer is given the assignment that could change her life . . . if Giles’s specialized training doesn’t make her want to end it first. Artist Georges Jeanty (The American Way) remains at the top of his game–and Joss Whedon stays on as Executive Producer–in this first part of “No Future for You.”

According to TV Squad and their report from San Diego’s ComicCon, Joss has reported that negotiations are almost complete with the BBC to make a 90 minute special of the long-awaited “Ripper”, starring my favourite watcher, Anthony Stewart Head.

There is plenty of other Joss news reported, but this was the one that got my attention. Also check out the Whedon ballet starring Summer Glau. 😉

Hannah Betts over at the Times Online compares the modern Doctor Who with Joss Whedon’s “Buffy”, looking at Russell T. Davies ‘sexing up’ of the series. Mr. Davies has previously expressed his admiration for Joss’ work, and it certainly shows in the latest installments.I for one am really enjoying the current series of Doctor Who, though I would still sacrifice it for more Whedon. 😉

The Doctor’s
recreator, Russell T. Davies, has expressed his admiration for Joss Whedon,
the genius behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and the series gets Buffier by
the moment: witty, literate, sophisticated, and revelling in postmodern
panache. Blink, the episode preceding this trilogy, was awesomely
terrifying in the manner of Whedon’s Emmy Award-nominated silent episode of
Buffy entitled Hush.

There’s another pleasing aspect to all this Buffiness: a certain – let us
express it in Blair terminology – sexing up of proceedings.

Herc’s Seen Episode 8.4 Of

I’ve been a bad bad Hercules. Issue four of Dark Horse’s new “Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season Eight” series has been on the stands since Wednesday, but all sorts of last-minute stuff – mounting piles of pilots and Galactica and Jericho and Veronica – kept me out of the comic-book stores until a few hours ago.
