Buffy season nine, by Joss Whedon

Buffy"But wait," you say. "There was a season eight?" Yes, there was. It was in comic book form. And season eight will be in the same format. This is according to Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon.

If you haven't been reading the comics, shame on you. Without the restrictions of a television budget, some crazy cool things have been happening. Like Dawn growing to enormous size and Buffy teaming up with Dracula to take out a band of rogue Asian vampires. Also, Buffy travels to the future to meet Slayer-from-the-future Malaka Fray (who was in a previous comic series of her own).

Whedon is obviously a fan of comics. The good news is, in comic books, the series never has to end. We could all be enjoying Buffy season 337 in a few centuries. Well, our descendants would be anyway. It's something to look forward to.

I applaud the effort, but without the actors in the roles the comics are charmless and dry.

Hasn't this been known for a while...?

But speaking of, I hope they bring out a 'season eight' collection because my nearest comic book store is a good 20 miles away and being in the UK the releases are sporadic so I became complacent.

Shouldn't the sentence in the first paragraph read: "And season nine will be in the same format."?

I thought they were good at first but I've felt they've sort of become something I don't like. I wished for a little more main storyline.
