comic after the fall

Yes, It's that time again.

Yes, yet again, more about the Buffy!Verse comics. Now in my ideal world, AtS would go to Dark Horse, where I will never buy another comic again, and Spike would get his own series at IDW written by Brian Lynch. I know, dream on. Alternatively, if I can't have that, he would die a hero's death, and be left forever in the realms of fanfiction, away from all the politics of Dark Horse and IDW. It kind of makes you feel that the characters who did die went to fanfic heaven, while the ones who are left are in hell. They have ruined the character of Angel that I no longer find him interesting enough to head his own series. I do blame both Dark Horse and IDW for this. So what do you think, if you are not sick to the back teeth of the subject already.

Concerns about the latest relevations of Buffy Season Eight

Following what is happening in the San Degio Comic Con, Joss Whedon now has a co-writer for the final issues of Buffy Season Eight. A nice new shiney has attracted Joss' attention. I know that comics are not the best paying gig in the joint, but from the outset we were told that had nothing to do with Buffy Season Eight. Joss was doing it because he had a story to tell, and was going to tell it in comic book form. It was going to be canon. It was going to continue the BtVS verse.

We as fans eagerly awaited its release, happy that Joss was giving us something to sink our teeth into.

Oh Joss, why to I feel like you have deserted your loyal Buffy fans, who have been there through thick and thin, and supported you. Not only in the Buffy!Verse but your other projects as well.

Waiting!

I phoned up my comic book shop today, and made sure my Angel: After the Fall was there, and asked for the cover I wanted. So they are going to send it ASAP. I hope to get it tomorrow. I have been going through my friends lists avoiding reviews. Everyone has been wonderful and put them behind cuts, *Loves You All*.

When I get the comic and have read it, I will catch up with your reviews, so you might get late comments from me.

I also ordered the IDW Dr Who comic that is coming out in January as well. Joe Corroney is doing the artwork, so I am really looking forward to that. His work on Spike Vs Dracula was wonderful. Such a pity he couldn't do #5.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

Nightmares and Spoilers

Woke up three times last night from three different nightmares. The only one I remember now was the first one, I woke up when a shark bit a man in two. Took a bit of time to get back to sleep after that. It was when I could look into his stomach that I just woke up with a start.

Anyway, Spike: Shadow Puppets comes out this week, depends on where you are in the world as to what day you get it. I was just doing a little thinking about the nature of the puppets in the comic.

I hope I get a better sleep tonight!

Pimping!

Two great new communities need pimping. Now I do hope you all know about decade_of_spike and have something wonderful ready for posting. And I do know that quite a few of my flist have already done banners for the community. They are all wonderful!

So to celebrate Spike being on our screens for 10 years come the 29th, posting from the 24th onwards for our vamp, and all his various character changes, and partnerships (het or slash, your call) needs love. Or meta, artwork, 101 reasons to love him, first impressions, that ONE time?, Evil, chipped or souled. Come play with Spike!

Also, as you all I am sure, know, I am waiting hopefully for the Angel:After the Fall comic. So I was delighted to find out about this community from shapinglight. One all about the up-coming comic. If you want to chat about Angel season 6, then join angel6_atf.....and if I can find a mod to ask, I may make a post to find out what people think about what Brian Lynch has done with Spike in Shadow Puppets, and Asylum. Maybe we can squee about him together!

I got my "Spike:Shadow Puppets" today, I know late to the party! Before I go on, I love IDW, and will continue to support them.....but!

Collapse )

Well left with just a clammy sweat now, so I think the cold is clearing up. Not going out for long periods of time as yet, but luckly my friends are coming over to my house to visit....they say I'm not contagious anymore. Still got the coughs, but the pain seems to have gone away. At least I am not on pain-killers any more. And I am eating better as well!

Ok, enough already! God I am such a moan today! :-)

Spoiler Alert!

Ok, so you have just bought your Spike:Shadow Puppets #1, you do not want a 5 page spoiler for the next issue? You do not want to see the two covers on offer? You really don't want to know what wonderful and interesting characters are in the next issue? Then DO NOT Click HERE. Oh Oh see if you pick up the Firefly Reference?

Ever get the feeling that if you began ranting you would never stop? That is how I feel today, a couple of things have set me off, kinda depressed about things.....kinds feel like letting off steam, but we know how that usually works in a situation like fandom or something....so lips zipped shut.

Also feeling a little sick, hot and bothered, not a good mix for letting off steam. Usually say something to regret.

ETA, anyone know where the navigation strip above the header went when looking round LJ, to post? I seem to have lost mine for the past two days

Spike:Shadow Puppets

Spike Shadow Puppets is out in the US today, and from the spoilers I have seen, looks and sounds wonderful! Spike as his own man, hell yes, More More.

If you want to read the spoilers I am talking about it is here, really not sure what cover I will get, I love the first one.
