Issue 03

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.

Cover: Ignacio Valicenti


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.

Boom!Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Issue 15

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.

Cover: Dan Panosian





Page 01: We open with Lilith sitting across from Angel at his home. She asks him if the detective with the pretty hair, Kate, doesn't remind him of someone. Angel denies this, but also points out that her asking him that means that Kate obviously reminds her of someone.

Lilith urges him to think about it, pointing out Kate's traits of determined anger and a penchant for self-destruction. She tells Angel that history is a cycle that repeats. Angel intuits that she's talking about Mara.

movie reviewed: Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956) - continued

Sc34: That night also, there is an air of celebration at the assumption that Godzilla had been destroyed and shipping is safe again. Steve warns in voiceover that the celebration was short-lived.

Out in Tokyo Bay, a dinner cruise-ship plys the quiet waters. The festivity is interrupted by the sounds of footsteps [somehow echoing up from the bottom of the Bay], and then by Godzilla's head popping above the surface of the sea with his signature roar announcing that he's no longer far south of the main island.
