    Ever?! Nah. It does look really nice but his lip has had a wasp sting and his hand's too big. Still, even like that I would, ya know.

    I really like these covers a heck of a lot. The last reminds me of Tabula Rasa, which it is probably supposed to. I assume it is Cordelia beside Buffy, she looks spaced/odd.

    The three connecting covers is clever, I wonder if they will do that as a variant for each of the three connected issues. I feel sorry for Angel though, someone has clearly broken his arm. He looks very odd against the other two which are really stylishly done.

    @Stoney:

    Okay - perhaps hyperbole on my part - I actually meant in the Boom run. In mitigation, my starting point for assessment was "a stick man would be better than the shite between the covers".

    I like the face - his bottom lip looks like it did in Intervention but he has a S7 paunch. I can't place the head - or rather the look on his face. That aside, I'm past caring now. I've lost interest and I'm just making stuff up. I can't even be bothered reading the comics for free.

    Oh, was that Cordelia beside Buffy? I thought it was meant to be Tara.

    After a hell god had dragged him around by it?? I do like it, there are a few things that are off, but it is a really nice likeness generally. If I was buying the individual issues I'd definitely have got that one.

    I still haven't read any of them yet although I have the first Buffy tpb. But they come out so much later there isn't a great impetus to pick it up. I suppose I should to decide if I'm going to keep buying them. I have the 1st Angel tpb and 2nd Buffy ones on preorder. No other trades have been announced yet. I'll probably stick with them through to getting to read the hellmouth 'event' at the least and then decide whether to keep ordering them. Not sure how they are going to release that. I don't read them without paying for them.

    I just assumed it was because she's part of the current cast, unless I've missed that they've introduced Tara.

    It's one of the covers that pays homage to a famous episode. This one is for "Tabula Rasa." Tara stands behind Joan and in front of Randy Giles

    I appreciate that and had said it reminded me of TR, which I assumed was deliberate. But Dawn is actually to the side of Buffy (Joan ) then with Tara to the side of her and Anya is in front of Giles, between Xander and Willow in TR. So as they've moved it all about I assumed it was Cordelia because she's current cast. Unlike the missing Dawn and Tara (I don't think either have come in to it, have they?).

    Yes, definitely Tara. But where's Dawn?

    but he has a S7 paunch
    That's his blood belly, he's had a good meal

    Didn't know these were available yet even on preorder. Has book advertised them?

    Dawn is definitely missing, and they seem to have switched up the positions. But it's cool

    If Tara isn't in the story yet and it is supposed to be her then that implies she's going to come in but Dawn isn't. I like Dawn.

    I think so. But I searched for them on Amazon to check so I might have just found them. It doesn't seem likely though that Boom would have missed a chance to market their product!

    Buffy is down as being out March 2020, Angel on 25th Sep. They come out a long time after.

    I agree. The homages are a neat touch and make me smile to see them.

    The homages have no connection to the story inside the issues. It is weird then that they left out Dawn. Maybe the artist is just a hater or figured there was no room.

    Oh no, that would be a loss to the story if we lose Dawn. I'd be sad about that. Maybe they're saving her for years down the line, if they plan that far ahead.

    I've checked Forbidden Planet and pre-ordered Vol 1 of Angel, but Buffy Vol 2 isn't there yet, but it is on Amazon. I'll wait a while to order it.

    I love Dawn, too, but it feels way too early. They need a stronger focus on Buffy, establish the new slayer and move forward the storylines including Willow, Xander and Robin. Dawn is a huge character. She needs her space.

    This is probably the still they took it from:

    That's a good call. It just emphasises how wrong the lip/mouth area is seeing them side by side. But it's still a good cover, just not as perfect as the actual flesh and blood version.

    Agreed, that promo picture must have been the main source for that cover, that's why it looks so familiar. But I have the feeling they also used the OMWF image as inspiration to subtly change his facial expression from the promo pic, adding the small smile and the more sultry look.

    Sometimes I wonder if there is something seriously wrong with James's skull. That line across his cheek ... what even is that? Are we all supposed to have a concave ridge on each side of the face?

    Still ... beautiful man.

    What line? You do realise that JM's cheekbones were shaded by the make up artists to accentuate natural features?
