    Past slayer covers seems to be a thing.

    The cover (?) of Dru and Buffy seems a little dream like, so maybe they are using Buffy's Slayer dreams and the past Slayers are going to appear. Maybe that's what knee-sock-Slayer is all about.

    Can't say I like the Lowenthal cover though. The Willow cover is my favourite image so far.

    This is from Newsarama, not sure if everyone's seen it already? . . .

    Over The Garden Wall's Celia Lowenthal has illustrated a variant cover for February's Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 from BOOM! Studios. This is part of the publisher's recently-announced reimagining of the Buffy franchise in comic books.

    “We’re excited to have Celia join us for a variant cover for the second issue of Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora’s incredible vision for Buffy and the gang, and to bring her unique point of view to the story,” said Jeanine Schaefer, BOOM!'s Executive Editor. “We’re treating each issue of this series like an event – so if you think Spike and Drusilla are the end of our big reveals, just wait till you get to the last page.”

    "The reimagining of Joss Whedon's groundbreaking series continues as Drusilla, the self-proclaimed Mistress and her pet, Spike, make their debut with their sights set on Buffy!," reads BOOM!'s description of the episode. "Meanwhile, Giles is determined to teach Buffy about her destiny, responsibility, blah blah...can someone tell him to chill? How bad can it get?"

    Must admit I'm quite excited by the 'big reveal' on the last page

    Lowenthal has tweeted that her inspiration for the cover was Bloodborne's OST, which she listened to while creating this work. I'm sure most of you know what Bloodborne is, but I had to google

    Bloodborne's soundtrack is fantastic, if you're into that sort of music it's worth listening even if you've never played the game.

    Thanks for posting a thing of evil. I've only listened to a little of it, but it's very atmospheric . . . and creepy

    It sounds like they are just being blatant about the power dynamic that was always in the Dru/Spike relationship. So using the complexity that was developed and steadily revealed in the show as a starting point. It could be interesting if they are then taking it somewhere rather than just taking away all the subtlety and layers to show one specific thing in a more open/blunt way. There's too little to go on really, and especially when we've not even had a single issue to get a gauge of the tone of the writing.

    All said regarding writers, producers, actors, directors, viewers, readers, etc. are what I remember, my opinions, etc.




    * Spike wasn't Drusilla's 'pet' after sometime after "Lovers Walk" (B 3.08)--or sometime after "Becoming Part II" (B 2.22).

    It makes sense. What we see in S7 is Buffy discovering the true origins of the slayer line and the Guardian positing a (repressed/supressed/unrecorded) history that parallels the history told by the Watchers Council. If they're utilising (as it seems) Tales of the Slayers, I wonder whether we'll get a re-telling of the Vampire mythology to run alongside it? Tales of the Vampires casts vamps in a different light - they're far more complex than we were lead to believe.

    On the subject of covers - there's this:

    So using the complexity that was developed and steadily revealed in the show as a starting point. It could be interesting if they are then taking it somewhere rather than just taking away all the subtlety and layers to show one specific thing in a more open/blunt way.
    This is my concern - it could be interesting or it could be dire. I tend to read S12 as a text of "forking paths" (I don't like either) and I thought S7 was equally complex from the perspective of its structure. I don't think it's necessarily coincidence that both the So(u)rcer and the Master (both established metaphors for the author/creator) make an appearance at the beginning of the end of the Comic/TV series respectively and both make explicit reference to returning to beginnings (which I'll write as re-turn). What elements will be taken back in this new re-turn? Will the past be encoded in Buffy from the off? Canon or no canon - I expect the vampires to change. Nina Auerbach remarks that every era gets the vampire it needs and the vampire it deserves and I think this was true of BtVS (LOL! I've just got this book down to find the quote and seen this little gem "I loved vampires before I hated Republicans").

    That Buffy variant is pretty cool, I mean, aside from the wrong eye color

    Maybe it`s Spike. Maybe they decided to drop the Billy Idol hairstyle.

    Those are seriously blue eyes. They're the sort of blue eyes used to describe Spike in fanfic! The colour be an aesthetic choice - more determined by the restricted palette of the image rather than by reality.

    The older DH comics used to always give her blue eyes. Jo Chen once game Spike brown eyes until fans complained. Probably just a mistake.
