I must admit, I always enjoy stories with an origin feel to them. Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Every Generation #1 is an oversized comic with three separate, but still related, stories. As any fan of the Buffyverse knows, Slayers have come and gone for centuries. When one dies another is called. This newest release gives us a short story from the lives of three Slayers, but not all of them have happy endings. But then, that is not really news, now is it?

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Vol. 1: High School Is Hell

Written by Jordie Bellaire

Colors by Raul Angulo

Cover by Matthew Taylor
Boom! Studios
Release Date: May 29, 2019
Cover Price: $14.99

With all the reboots that happen in the movie industry, you would think that people would eventually rebel against all the rehashing. But then a gem like this one comes along and renews everyone’s faith in the concept of re-imagining.

Joss Whedon created one of the most dynamic characters to ever grace the page or screen, this was enhanced through television, film, comics, and books. These all built upon one another, creating what is essentially known as the Buffyverse. BOOM! Studios has rebooted this and given it a more modern update for today’s fans. And with that, I present to you a short spotlight on Buffy The Vampire Slayer Vol. 1: High School Is Hell!

It seems only fitting that I should make this comic my first review of 2019. I have been absent due to a new job that was far more than I could have anticipated but I wanted to make my comeback this week and start writing again. To that point, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 is the perfect vehicle for this as it is also a reboot of epic proportions!

I haven’t written anything about Buffy Summers since 2011, so I would definitely say it is about time. So without any further jabbering on my part, let me get to it!

Book Review: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire: A Magickal History Of Sunnydale

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire: A Magickal History of Sunnydale
Hardcover
By A.M. Robinson, Willow Rosenberg
Publisher: Insight Editions
Release Date: October 24, 2017

It’s been only five months since Buffy sacrificed herself to save the world. For five months we’ve wondered if the person who should be here, smiling and laughing and punning in a non-Buffybot way that actually makes sense, is instead suffering in an unimaginable hell dimension. Willow Rosenberg… October 2, 2001

Willow Rosenberg, the witchy brain of the Scooby gang, started chronicling her adventures from around the time Buffy went away, distraught over killing Angel (so beginning of season 3), to her last entry about the “spell to share the power of the chosen one” in season 7. Willow weaves her humor and language (I dub Buffy-speak) to give us her point of view of Oz, meeting Tara, The Gentlemen, Adam, and Tabula Rasa.

More below on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire: A Magickal History of Sunnydale by Willow Rosenberg aka A.M. Robinson.

Comics For Free Comic Book Day 2017
  |  @   |  

Well, folks, it is that time again. It’s time for Free Comic Book Day! On May 6, 2017, comic and book shops across the known ‘verse will offer up exclusive comics to patrons for free. But it’s not just about dropping in and grabbing free loot and bailing. No, friends, this is the day you need to get out and show your appreciation for these stores. Because while the comics are free to you, they are not free to the shopkeepers. They buy those for distribution as a way of thanking us for our business. And what better way to pay it forward is there than to drop a few bucks in their businesses? I’ll leave it to you and your conscience, but know that what you do on FCBD will affect what the shops are able to do in the future. My local comic shop closed, certainly you would not want the same fate for yours, would you? Click here to find a participating comic shop near you!

But all the peer pressure aside, let us take a look at what the day will bring us in the way of comics. But remember, every shop may not have every title.
