BTVS, Season 11, Issue 01

"The Spread of their Evil..."

Script: Christos Gage, Artwork: Rebekah Isaacs, Colors: Dan Jackson, Letters: Richard Starkings & [Comicraft's] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Steve Morris





Blurb: Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been saving the world from demons and the forces of darkness on a regular basis since she was a teenager. Alongside her vampire boyfriend Spike; her best friends, Wiccan Willow Rosenberg and normal guy Xander Harris; her sister Dawn; and her formerly old but now magically reborn as a thrteen-year-old mentor Giles, Buffy has found nothing they can't face together... But the world hasn't stopped throwing new challengers their way.


Wait now, Rob still does reviews?Collapse )

Hey. I'm here, I'm here! I've just been too... blah... to review. But, I do feel really badly about it and so, to show that I'm not totally withdrawn into a shell of insular blues, I present this next edition of 'Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments' with the Winchester brothers.


Our episode of character focus this time out is "The Benders". And our main players are: Sam, Dean, Officer Kathleen & Alvin Jenkins.

The Benders are our bad guys, and this one is interesting in that the Winchesters have to deal with a very human set of villains.

Not too bad for our characters, but not awesome of them either.Collapse )

Hey. Welcome to another edition of 'Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments' in the Buffyverse. This time, we're going to take a look at our characters in BTVS, Season 10, Issue 06.

Our main players who will try to remind us their heroes, and now zeroes are: Buffy, Teen-Giles, Xander, Willow, Dawn, and Spike.


Only Rupert really disappoints, though Xan is a bit jerky.Collapse )

Best of / Worst of Character Moments in the Buffyverse. Our subject today is Angel & Faith, Season 02, Issue 05.


And our focus characters, who are supposed to be inspiring us, are: Angel, Detective Brandt, Sophronia Fairweather, and Lavinia Fairweather.

And this is the issue where Angel's team discovers that the vampires have recently undergone a radical change, thanks to things that happened over in BTVS, Season 10!

Even the Fairweathers do well in this issue.Collapse )

Good Day! And welcome to our continuing series of mini-posts in which we focus on our protagonist characters and try to size up whether they deserve a kudo for a heroic or inspiring deed, & whether they've got a demerit coming at them for being stupid, immoral, or otherwise not so inspiring.

Our subject for this post is the 1944 film, "Nabonga". Now, I didn't find this film to be too awfully painful, despite that it's generally a 'jungle adventure' flick. I mean let's not get carried away with the applause, but it wasn't as awful, as I feared.

BUT -- how were our main characters? Today we'll be focusing on four: Ray Gorman, Doreen Stockwell, Tobo & the "uh, great ape - sure, Nabonga - or er, Samson!".

Ray is trying to track down items stolen from his father's bank, and which was unjustly blamed on his dad. Doreen is the child who was vanished by her father - who was the true embezzler. Tobo is a local guide who takes a shine [there isn't any other way to put it] to Ray. And finally, we have Nabonga/Samson who forms a bond with Doreen and tries to protect her.

Ray comes out okay, but that last observance at Doreen wrankles.Collapse )

Happy New Year, Humanity!


Jeezus, I hope this is a better year than 2016. Especially since I'm afraid for the current political & social climate in the U.S of A.

Hey, and hi. We're back with another edition of the Buffyverse Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments. And this time, we're actually with Buffy and the Scooby Gang.

Let's take a closer look at our main players in Season 10's Issue 05.

Our main players are: Rupert Giles, Willow, Dawn, Xander, Buffy & Spike.

Poor Andy is stuck in cameo-player status.

Kudos all around! Oh, but wait, there are those few half-demerits.Collapse )

Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments! And this time we're in the Buffyverse, but not with Buffy. This posting concerns Angel & Faith, Season 02, Issue 04.

And who shall be our focus characters for our attention? None other than ... Angel... and Faith! I knew you'd be shocked.

But really, our focus this issue is: Angel, Faith, & Nadira.


Only a guest character gets something.Collapse )

I tried some night shots, but I don't know just how well they'll have come out. I'm posting them anyway.

As to reviews: I'm doin' a little bit per day when I get up, since I haven't seemed able to commit to the thought of doing a full review in a several-hours-of-work sort of way. Why I'm so energyless is a personal life-issue that keeps on giving & I just don't wanna go into it. But I'm not in a coma, in a padded cell, or dead so there will be more posting coming.

Right now, on tap are: Supernatural's Season 01 "Hell House" & BTVS Season 11, Issue 01's "The Spread of Their Evil..." part I. In the Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments, we've got BTVS Season 10, Issue 05's "New Rules" part V & Angel & Faith's Season not-10-damnit, Issue 04's "Where The River Meets The Sea", part IV & for the movie, "Nabonga" (1944).
