Comic Roundup: March 5, 2008

  • It's already new comics day again, but better late than whatever, right?

  • Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 8 issue 12: The best compliment I can give is that Drew Goddard writes this exactly like I believe Joss Whedon would have. It's a testament to the strength of this franchise that there are people able to step up and tell an entirely Buffy story so seemlessly. While it was teased that this issue would see the return of a fuzzy character we haven't seen in some time, it turns out that the surprise was very, very surprising. And hilarious. I had to stifle my laugher because I made the mistake of reading this at work. That doesn't happen often. I'm not spoiling anything for you, but this turn of events was very interesting and I can't wait to see what becomes of it.

  • Echo issue 1: Some might find it strange that Terry Moore is writing a... well, what is it really? A superhero story? A techno-horror? What is it? No matter what the book is about, I'm confident that Moore will had it with the warmth and depth we expect from him. Maybe Strangers In Paradise was a romance at heart, but the way he handled the mafia/conspiricy story lines shows he's comfortable with a more muscular tale. This first issue was an interesting introduction that didn't overdo explaining its premise, but included enough detail to hook me until the next issue.
