Have you ever had the misfortune of having your favorite TV show cancelled or end? It isn't pretty is it? It downright sucks. One of my very favorites (I'm watching right now and have the entire DVD set :)) is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is one of the best shows ever. I'm completely biased. I was so unhappy when it stopped. All that time spent speculating the new big bad or laughing again about the best lines was empty.
Then my wonderful B (Heh, B) bought 5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer graphic novels. I whipped through the first 3 on Christmas Day. Tried to pace myself with Book 4 and haven't yet read Book 5. The books pick up where the series ended, where Sunnydale is a giant pit. It took me some time to warm up to the books, but that was okay because it took Book 1 for it to feel like Buffy. The books can do a lot of what the TV could not. Like poor Dawn! The pictures are awesome. Everything is new and shiny...well except for some returning characters ;)
Best? Looking for the new big bad or laughing about the lines! Yea books!
