Joss Whedon and Georges Jeanty's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #4. This issue wraps up the first arc, "The Long Way Home". Here is my question: if Whedon wrote this as a television show how many episodes would these four issues be? One? Two? These four issues read very well together, and provide the satisfying hook for the "season" I wanted from the first issue and would want from the first episode of a good television show. We learn that the dramatic final pages of issues one and three, while still relevant, will not be the main focus of the season, thankfully. (Their "inside baseball" quality got on my nerves a little). Now that I have more of an understanding who the Big Bad is for this season is, I have more confidence that this series is going to be excellent.
Nothing in the news jumped out at me, and I did not pick anything else up this week: review, recommend and discuss this week's comics and comics news.
