    Buffy has never needed a vacation so badly as she does now - with the world overrun with zompires and other fallout from Season 8. Luckily, Spike has got the perfect solution: a "spacecation"!

    Having lost their regular real-life meeting place, the Guildies are having a little trouble finding a new location they can all agree on. A little in-game battle becomes the deciding factor, and the circle follows the decree of the winner: the beach?!


    There's a download link for the preview page's pdf at the site in the above link.

    They're definitely aping Alien in the opening pages.That first panel is directly lifed from Alien as well as the bug silhouette looking like the xenomorph.

    Looks like we've got a zompire space bug.

    I guess that proves she has her arm back by then right?

    I was hoping for the covers for issue 10. Oh well.

        Is it possible and legal to post the pages here? I'm looking at this thread with my iPhone, so I can't download the pdf's.

        Please, please let the alien monster be a xenomorph! Ever since someone suggested "Buffy vs Alien" in another thread I've wanted to see her fight one.

            I can't quite make out one of the words. Where did the bugs take shore leave?

            This comic looks hilarious. I really hope the bad bug is a xenomorph. That shadow has me hopeful.

            I don't know how I feel about vampires siring space bugs. I always thought that was a humans only thing. I mean, we don't get vampire siring animals or siring demons. It should be humans only. Or maybe the rule is sentient, non demonic lifeforms only. I guess this oneshot doesn't take itself too seriously and neither should we. I can forgive a continuity flub if it brings a xenomorph into the story. It's pretty funny that the bugs ate Buffy's stakes.

            Has there ever been a refernce to the "Alien" franchise in the show before?

            At some point we need a scene of a vampire turning to dust when a chestburster burrows out of it's chest.

              I could of sworn there was a reference in a episode of Angel.Sort of a dig.Joss wrote the fourth Alien film,"Alien Resurrection." and he wasn't happy how his script was filmed.

              The new Alien film comes out a month after this comic is released."Prometheus" which is Ridley Scott's return to the Alien franchise, opens on June 8.It's a prequel/spin-off
              Spoiler:
              dealing with the Space Jockey race instead of the xenomorphs
              .Dark Horse also has the comic rights to the Alien franchise.So this looks to be good cross promotion.lol

                "Longtime pal" Spike. That gives me such warm fuzzies.

                  Spike is a thing that goes bump in the night and undoubtedly wants to go bump in the night, so that part of the blurb amuses me.

                  Doubt a chestburster could gestate in a vampire, personally. I don't think there's any actual Alien crossover going on here, just using the imagery to make a joke about a zompire bug.

                      The shore leave reference clicked -- he said "the Haight", as in Haight-Ashbury, presumably to give them some San Francisco literal and figurative street cred. I knew it looked familiar (spent a couple different vacations in the area), and google clarified.

                        I would have dug a Star Trek IV reference with the ship landing all cloaked in Golden Gate Park, but I guess that's a Paramount property and studio properties are traditionally non-mixy.

                          For a 'grounded' season, it sure has a lot of weird things going on. Then again I guess after season 8 anything is 'grounded'.
                          You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

                            Buffy peering out from the space suits is a homage to Sigourney Weaver's character Ripley from the Ridley Scott film Alien.

                              Poor Irene! "She" was the narrator of the Spike-mini! Sniff.

                                I didn't notice that about Irene! That's pretty sad. Spike also lost the foul-mouthed bug to Voll at the end of season 8. I hope the vamp-bug (who I dearly hope has morphed into a xenomoph) doesn't kill any more of the bugs. But since it's a girl, maybe we will get Spike saying the famous line as Irene threatens Buffy and Spike flushes her out of the air lock. After all, Buffy has no stakes to kill it.

                                King, I suspect you are right about chestburster being unnable to gestate inside a vampire. Which is a pity, it would have been a cool visual for the vamp to dust after an alien pops out. I seemed to remember the first victim guy from "Alien" being dead, but then I remembered that the facehugger was giving him oxygen. I guess they need living hosts and not corpses?

                                  Oh that Irene? Now I'm sad
                                  I liked that bug, she loved king Spike. Why did they have to turn her into a space bug zompire?

                                    So is this the final declaration from DH that Joss doesn't take his own mythology seriously, so stop bugging (sic!) him about it?

                                    And to think we actually tried to make sense of the whole zompire explanation...

                                      I don't want or need any actual, literal use of the Alien in a "Buffy" story, unless it's an explicit AU crossover.

                                      Spike can still say the line, and might just actually. Or maybe we'll get one of the bugs to say "17 days??!" or "is this gonna be a stand up fight, Your Highness, or another us hunt?"

                                      After the initial amusement of "Alien" references wears off, I can't help but think "man, it sure is nice we're getting this free content to let us see Buffy and Spike interact, since we haven't gotten any of that in the main title".
