I have one word for Joss Whedon….Tease! He goes and creates this great comic book and it is just an 8 chapter stand alone. Well, they made a Firefly movie based on the ground swell so maybe we can get him to write more of this great comic book.
So what is so great about this graphic novel? It is well written and extremely well developed for only 8 chapters. Moline and Owens created breath taking art that truly brings to life Melaka Fray, our newest vampire slayer. Now, while I am a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer you needn’t have previous slayer knowledge. According to the forward, that is why the plot is set so far in the future. Whedon does a great job of explaining what the slayer is without insulting existing Buffy fans and also not creating a separate, contradictory concept. I am a novice to the comic book world and I adored it. Whereas NerdDad is an old hand at comic books and he felt it was surprisingly good. This would be a great gift for a Joss Whedon fan!
PS This is not for young kids. If you wouldn’t let your kids watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, don’t let them read this.
