It’s a comic book.Â Season 8, I mean.
Today’s U.K. GuardianÂ tells us all about it.
Â [ “Joss Whedon, the show’s creator, has launched “season eight” of Buffy – not as a TV series, but as a comic. There have been other Buffy-related comics since the TV show finished, but this is “canon“, the official Whedonesque version of events post-season seven. In America, the first instalment, from Dark Horse Comics, sold out in a matter of days.” ]
After reading the description of this first installment of “Season 8” this reader thought it sounded so dreadful that it is just as well the thing sold out and she shall never see it in this life.Â If she’s good.Â Not bad.
In other tenuously related Buffy news, Jane Epson, on her website, passes on the information that Danny Strong, who played Jonathan Levinson in the nerd trio that constituted Buffy’s Season 6 Big Bad, has sold a script to HBO.Â The project is a movie about the 2000 U.S. election, focusing on the month during which the dems challenged the pubs, and what happened.Â It is to be directed by Sydney Pollock.
