    Maybe perspective plays a part as well, because in the Buffy/Angel/Illyria cover, the scythe looks smaller than Angel's sword
    .

    Except Angel's sword is broken - do you know how much fun I could have with that? I'm vindicating my vindictiveness all round today! Spike doesn't need a "visible" weapon - he's armed with, and armoured by, Buffy's love.

    I love this post. The forum won't let me give you anymore reputation or I would have. Armed with and armoured by Buffy's love *sigh

    Now I have noticed, that all three of them have their eyes closed in the first cover. I wonder, if it is a coincidence or if they have to fight blindly?

    I've tweeted Stephanie Hans to ask her why they've all got their eyes closed, though not sure she'll answer me

    I'm not sure their eyes are closed and they aren't just all looking down. If you look at Pricey's banner, which uses the Spike image that was spoiled, the eyes don't look closed. Of course that could have been amended, but it could be more about 'raising' them against those below that they are fighting against. Gaze tends to reveal power dynamics and the demons/baddies are all looking up and Faith is even skewering one in the eye.

    Oh Duh! Vampire! There's me thinking he was just in need of a good orthodontist. We had Boluz and Vrill plus Neauth in Fray. They're all old ones. Plus Illyria.

    No - I'm not sure their eyes are meant to be shut - it's just the way they're drawn. That said, Faith stabbing one in the eye is interesting. You never see Harth's eyes. In fact there are 9 characters on that first cover and only one really apparent eye. Maybe Hans just isn't good at eyes.

    Stephanie Hans replied to me, (I commented on her cover) though she didn't answer the question about the closed eyes. She replied 'where did you see it ? I haven't seen the preview yet', so doubt she's going to get back to me

    I can't tell you how much that's made me laugh Really there's no emoji that can do justice to it! It didn't help I'd got a mouthful of cake and custard when I read it! It's bloody hysterical.

    I'm not sure I like these covers very much. The cover art is usually superior to the storyboard work in the past but these drawings don't make me feel inspired. Angel and Illyria look great, but what on earth is going on with our Faith? Buffy is..ok... but Spike? Doesn't look like the Spike from (say) any of the season 10 covers. I mean, you can tell who it's supposed to be but I think it's quite a poor likeness. Thumbs down.

    And is that Ronnie the Sluggoth making a guest cameo? More penis-dentata monsters to send TriBel into further speculation about the themes.

    PS. Count yourselves lucky I didn't use the phrase "wild frenzy". Oh, wait, whoops I just did.

    So if season 12 is supposed to be the culmination of all of the Buffy seasons then Harth is, what, the ultimate big bad, the final boss of the Buffyverse? That is so lame, I mean, he's such a...nobody.

    You know, I've just realised who the Spike on that cover reminds me of: someone from an 80s boy band, either Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet. Given I wasn't a big fan of either, I'm more than a little disappointed.
    Bring back Night Fever Spike - he was recognisably our guy. And then some.

    Ha...Harth has "Angel" hair. I'm looking for an emoji that's tapping the side of its nose but there isn't one. At the end of A11, Angel wanders off with Fred to a hotel (that isn't haunted [by his past]) just before Twilight. Hotels are transient places, temporary stops. I always thought the mirror that showed his reflection was a way of saying he's a "good man". What if the bad man (Twilight/Angelus) was stuck in a different timeline? That would make sense of Illyria's comment "You're no longer a God" - the evil God aligns with Angelus (always has done). Sorry - that's all I've got - Angel hair and a tendency to over-read.

    TriBel, why can’t you just accept that Angel’s reflection in season 11 was an error? Do you think Angel’s reflection is a permanent part of the story now? Do you think that if Spike becomes a “good man” he will get a reflection too?
