    I an torn between a Lebowski-esque indignation (Well, they finally did it. They killed my f***ing car) and a trill of excitement that some substantive plot involvement for my dude is afoot.

    By the by, I think people ate making big mistakes in assuming that there is a sense of manifest destiny by which this comic reboot kelvin thing is going to actually run parallel to the original run. That could come up in both characters and relationships (i.e. Rose may not be a placeholder for Tara or anyone else) and in terms of mythology/world-building (has any prior coverage or solicit every said anything about their being such a thing as souls for vampires, or the old demon-copy rules, etc? Could be that the nature of vampires might be written different on this pass, and why not? Who ever heard of Camazotz before? Would love if they made vampire morality the same mixed bag as humans, albeit skewed evil. Souls for vampires were a plot contrivance fit for 1997 when the existing vampire fiction of the moment was leaning much more heavily toward them being unreasoning monsters; the Anne Rice moment had kind of already faded.

    I like the idea that it looks like Willow and Xander are being trained in fighting.It makes sense really.If they are joining the fight alongside the slayer,then it's not a bad idea for them to have some combat training.

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist and I prefer Buffy does the fighting But yes, it is logical that they would all learn to fight, although it seems like Xander still gets beaten.

    Does it seem to anyone else that Spike watching Buffy fight, and then is kissing Dru, but his hearts not in it and he's really thinking of Buffy . . . or am I being a Spuffy obsessive?

    Cordy dreaming of Spike could be a hint at future Spordelia, or it could be lifted from the show, in which she had a crush on Angel, which he didn't reciprocate for another 5 years.

    Nice to see Giles and Jenny, though she looks a bit too square to be Jenny, but very sweet.

    Who ever heard of Camazotz before?
    a) Anyone with an interest in Mayan mythology and b) anyone who's read Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time

    I think you're probably right about the soul.

    1) Spike watching Buffy; 2) Spike watching Buffy 3) Spike looking out of frame at Buffy while he's with Dru. 4) Cordy daydreaming about Spike. Either last issue's misdirect wasn't a misdirect or it was a misdirect and they're continuing with it.

    ETA

    This is so good!

    Like, I can't even contain myself right now!

    Giles/Jenny and Spike/Cordelia!
    Willow and Xander training with Buffy AND slaying together!
    Buffy dual-wielding swords!
    Willow starting to learn magic WITH Giles
    Spike and Dru being sexy!
    G-giles casting a spell?!

    So awesome, like, they went full action movie montage (or whatever it's called!) Man, this series is basically everything I want out of a Buffy comic!

    I don`t really know how I feel about those panels. I am sorry, but Buffy looks as if she is bored to hell during Xander`s and Willow`s training lesson. She almost looks angry. I can`t really find an explanation that would make her behaviour more likeable. If anyone has any idea, please tell me. I don`t want to dislike Buffy.

    Apart from that the panels don`t really show us anything new. Giles cleans his glasses, Spike snogs Dru and watches Buffy from the shadows, the Scoobies like Pizza, Giles likes cryptic books ...

    I get your point but I don't dislike her. Kinda feel sorry for her. I wonder if it's something along the lines of this:

    BUFFY
    I feel like I'm worse than anyone. Honestly, I'm beneath them. My friends, my boyfriends. I feel like I'm not worthy of their love. 'Cause even though they love me, it doesn't mean anything 'cause their opinions don't matter. They don't know. They haven't been through what I've been through. They're not the slayer. I am. Sometimes I feel (sighs) this is awful... I feel like I'm better than them. Superior.

    HOLDEN
    Until you can't win. And I thought I was diabolical熔r, at least I plan to be. You do have a superiority complex. And you've got an inferiority complex about it. (laughs) Kudos.

    BUFFY
    It doesn't make any sense.

    HOLDEN
    (sits forward) Oh, it makes every kind of sense. And it all adds up to you feeling alone.

    We know she had mixed feelings right up to S11 about not being the only slayer.

    Xander’s life in those panels don't look all nice and shiny. A bad grade on his assignment, him walking sadly on the sidewalk and there's that vampire about to drain him. They are hinting to Xander becoming a vampire.

    Please, don't vamp Xander. He (and Cordelia) is my favourite character so far. The Xander-is-depressed-and-alienated thing needs a proper pay-off. Giving him a vampire family could make him an interesting vampire character, but it would be at the cost of the most developed Scooby.

    Wouldn't be at all surprised. Sort of an Angel/Angelus dyad writ large (or small as the case might be). That Xander vamp cover's a damned sight prettier than the Cordy one.

    It will be the most Xander thing ever if they turn him into a vampire for him to be an inconsequential minor tragic footnote like Forgettable "The Freshman" Guy instead of a legit primary or secondary antagonist.
