Re: Buffy season nine discussion thread

I stopped reading Angel when "After the Fall" ended. How is what came afterwards and is it connected to Buffy Season Eight? Do they explain why Spike commands an alien space ship?

Re: Buffy season nine discussion thread

I think as explained by someone in the Buffy Season Eight Thread Spike's aliens are explained in the Spike mini-series or will be? I can't remember.

Re: Buffy season nine discussion thread

^ Aye. It will be explained in the current IDW Spike series. Of which there are to be 8 issues, 5 of which have been released thus far. No alien bigs as of yet but they are due to appear later on. Willow showed up though last issue

Re: Buffy season nine discussion thread

yeah no buggs as of yet in spike and no IDEA of twilight happening in angel either .
Does any one know if spike will get a series in dark horse ?
and will there be any more anthologies like tales of the vampire of tales of the slayer ?


also with dru being back in spike life do you think willow will give her a soul as well ? and will they keep this relationship going into season nine .

Allie has said that Spike will be appearing in Buffy season 9 so much that there might not be time for him to have his own series. Which makes me pretty happy since I'm not a big fan of Brian Lynch's writing of Spike and I'd much rather have Whedon (or maybe Espenson) writing him.

also with dru being back in spike life do you think willow will give her a soul as well ? and will they keep this relationship going into season nine .
For one thing, I'm pretty sure that giving vampires back their souls was way beyond Willow's capabilities, great as they were (or else I imagine she'd have been doing it all the time), the only reason she was able to get Angel resouled was because he had already been cursed with a soul, and on AtS they still needed to have his soul in a jar or whatever that container was.

And it's a moot point now anyway since Willow doesn't have her magic anymore after #39.

Lynch has said that in Spike #7 we'll also find out when exactly and how Buffy and the Scoobies first found out about Spike's resurrection.

Whedon was apparently involved in #5 because he wanted to 'oversee' Willow's dialogue. I don't know how much he is involved in the next issues.

Can anyone figure out at what time during season 8 is the current Spike series supposed to take place? It seems that Willow already knows about Dawn being a giant.

^ Dawn was already a giant at the start of Season 8 anyway. Also the Spike series is seemingly taking place concurrently with the last remaining IDW Angel issues, wherein Angel is not Twilight yet.

So I would say definitely before. Although the whole timeline of these comics seem very wonky, so hey I'll probably be disproven

Re: Buffy season nine discussion thread

Nope. Joss doesn't seem fond of novels for some reason. I believe there was a fuss some years ago about him putting the kabosh on a line of potential Firefly novels. Perhaps KRAD can shed some light on that because IIRC he was going to write one of them and he did write the novelization for Serenity.

I want more Fray. The crossover last year wasn't enough for me.

^ I found the fray original graphic novel at my comic store . first printing too . ^
you ever read " queen of the slayers or dark congress " they were set in season eight ? and if you're a faith fan you need to read " go as malice " which gives a greater history faith .

I'm not read any of the Buffy novels. Don't find any of them interesting quite frankly.

I read Queen of the Slayers. Possibly the worst thing I've ever read. It may be set after Season 7, but suffice to say it's not connected to the Season 8 comics

I know that Dawn was already a giant, but Willow was away and only came back in #2 and then in #3 she is surprised that Dawn is a giant: "How come you're a giant?" So it has to be after the start of season 8.
