Angel + Spike
Issue 14





Writer: Zac Thompson, Artwork: Hayden Sherman & Roman Titov, Lettering: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Ben Templesmith


Page 01: We open on a fisheye view of Los Angeles. We focus our attention on an alleyway between skyrises, where the downtrodden are gathered in a makeshift tent community.

Voiceover tells us someone was a man once, before they discovered loss, and now they don't know what they are.

Boom!Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Issue 17





Writer: Jordie Bellaire & Jeremy Lambert, Artwork: Andrés Genolet & Raúl Angulo, Lettering: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Marguerite Sauvage


Page 01: We open on an Elven man sitting in a chair made of a tree, surrounded by books. Our man reads to himself, when his attention is grabbed by a 'crack'.


Page 02: Our hero is Weslarion, and the 'crack' was three Gargoyles breaking into his sanctum. They pontificate that he's not been following the rules of the Varguuhl, and so has been sentenced to death. Our hero seems unconcerned by this threat.

Willow
Issue 03





Writer: Mariko Tamaki, Artwork: Natacha Bustos & Eleonora Bruni, Lettering: Jodi Wynne
Cover: Jen Bartel


Page 01: We open with Willow sitting up in bed, where Willow is feeling the after-effects of her orgiastic whirlagig the night before. She wonders briefly if she may've been drugged, but also wonders if it's just the sugar-high of the marshmallow brownies she ate (vegan, of course).


Page 02: When she's gotten herself dressed and left her room, she finds the entire vibe of the community around her different. Where before, the residents of Abhainn were cold toward her presence, today everyone is all smiles and warm greetings. Almost effusively so.

Page 01: We open in a flashback to Hollywood, 1962.

Angel monlogues that after centuries, one may think that one Hell Town would bleed into the next. But, he finds Hollywood stands out.

Angel is inside a mansion that has been crime scene. We can see by the blood on the floor and part of a chalk outline, that a murder has been committed here. And judging by the prominent framed poster, the victim was successful actress, Jean Mitchel. You may've caught her classic movie, 'The Murder in the Marigolds' on TCM.

Freighter Watch

Hello, Marsh.

.
My home continues to be under mild assault from a marsh that is trying to reclaim the island for itself.

I'm trying not to blame it. But, it really sucks. I was so worried about the Great Lakes levels when they were too low, but now we've had the opposite extreme and there is too much water to stay where (in my selfish opinion) it belongs.

Cover: Dan Panosian


Page 01: We open with a possessed Charles Gunn finishing his axe downstroke at the not-helpless Kate. She throws herself out of the bed in time to be missed. She goes for her gun, on the floor next to the bed, but it gets slapped out of her hands before she can train it on him.

She has to throw herself backward into a closet in order to avoid another axe swing.

Writer: Jordie Bellaire, Artwork: Ramon Bachs & Raúl Angulo, Lettering: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: David López


Page 01: We open on a voiceover stating that while Sunnydale made it through the Hellmouth, and people think they can just return to their mundane, mortal lives - they know the truth. Many of them saw a violent darkness within themselves.

Our speaker is a robed-one... y'know the type. He's speaking to an audience of other robed-ones.

"You Don't Have to Go Home"





Writer: Mariko Tamaki, Artwork: Natacha Bustos & Eleonora Bruni, Lettering: Jodi Wynne
Cover: Mirka Andolfo


Page 01: We find Willow in a small restaurant agonizing over writing a postcard. Her thoughts state that she feels like she should talk to someone. But she doesn't know who to talk to, or what to say. She makes false starts to Buffy and Giles, but doesn't complete her attempt to reach out.
