    This is a collection of short stories all set in Joss Whedon s Buffyverse, and so just as canonical as the Season Eight comic series from Dark Horse Comics, but mostly they are independent shorts focusing on Slayers throughout the ages, and a few little vignettes about secondary characters The volume opens with a few pages showing the First Slayer, then skips through various periods of history, each Slayer Tale written and illustrated by a different team Righteous is about a Slayer in medi This is a collection of short stories all set in Joss Whedon s Buffyverse, and so just as canonical as the Season Eight comic series from Dark Horse Comics, but mostly they are independent shorts focusing on Slayers throughout the ages, and a few little vignettes about secondary characters The volume opens with a few pages showing the First Slayer, then skips through various periods of history, each Slayer Tale written and illustrated by a different team Righteous is about a Slayer in medieval Europe who saves a town from a master vampire, but finds that the town is less than grateful Echoing frequent themes in Whedon s work fear of female empowerment , it s one of many of the stories that has a rather dark ending The Innocent features the Slayer hunting vampires on the streets of Revolutionary France, and being betrayed by very human evils Presumption is an Austenesque romp with a vampire and a Slayer dancing at a Regency ball, with a twist ending The Glittering World takes place in the Old West, with a Navajo Slayer hunting a Navajo vampire As a bonus, we get a first glimpse of Sunnydale and an old friend from the TV series Sonnenblume is one of thedisturbing and yetheroic stories, as the Slayer this time is a German girl in Nuremberg in 1938 and a member of the Hitler Youth Nikki Goes Down stars Nikki, the 70s Slayer who appeared in the TV series, in a pulp adventure romp where she rides a pteranodon into the NYC subway seriously Tales is set in Whedon s future Slayer Fray universe Broken Bottle of Djinn stars another WWII era Slayer, this time an American presumably the replacement for Sonnenblume saving the world from a Big Bad Djinn.The second half of the volume collects the Tales of the Vampires series, which made individual vampires characters Of course they are all evil, but sometimes you can almost sympathize with them These stories also range throughout history, though withfocusing on the modern day, and a few of them involve characters from the series Spike and Drusilla make an appearance, as does Angel, and there s a humorous tale with Buffy going to rescue Xander from Dracula This is where the book ties into the events of Season Eight , as there is frequent mention of Harmony Kendall s outing of vampires and making them cool and popular while turning Slayers into public enemies Some vampires are happy about the new rules, some aren t.Overall, I enjoyed this book very muchthan I enjoyed a lot of Season Eight You can tell some really interesting stories about new characters who happen to exist in the Buffyverse in just a few pages, and the occasional filling in of events referenced but not described in the series lets the writers go off on tangents they couldn t in the main storyline Since this is a collection of several series going back over ten years, there s a wide range in writing and drawing styles.Definitely recommended for Buffy fans, even those who didn t like Season Eight or would prefer not to think of it as canon

    Good short story comics that give some background on the lore of the series with some fun cameos of characters we love Basically, it made me want to watch the series again.2017 challenge a book that s been on your TBR list for way too long

    Connecting the dots of slayers and vampires within the Buffyverse from years past was an amazing trip These comics feature plenty of new characters as well as fill in some gaps for old favorites such as what happened to Spike and Dru in Prague The last tale, Carpe Noctem , even has a couple quotes from Brave New World that relate to the storyline I loved reading these tales.

    Pre Season 8 and considered canon, this collection contains the stories of Tales of the Slayers and Tales of the Vampires, written by Joss and other writers of the show I m not sure what took me so long to but I m so glad I got around to these stories They aim to richen the history of the slayer and depth of the vampire by telling stories of both sides.You get a look back at slayers through time, beginning with the first slayer and up until Fray, and see their experience of being a slayer in t Pre Season 8 and considered canon, this collection contains the stories of Tales of the Slayers and Tales of the Vampires, written by Joss and other writers of the show I m not sure what took me so long to but I m so glad I got around to these stories They aim to richen the history of the slayer and depth of the vampire by telling stories of both sides.You get a look back at slayers through time, beginning with the first slayer and up until Fray, and see their experience of being a slayer in their time There were a handful of standout stories in that section but it was easily the Tales of the Vampires that really did it for me Those of which start with one vampire telling a group of children and future watchers tales of vampires, so as to prepare and train them for their watcher duties.In those stories we get some great cameos and backstories of characters we know and love in the Buffyverse Not too surprising, but some of the stories I enjoyed most were written by Joss himself, especially that of Stacy We gotof Spike and Dru s love story, a story from Season 8 when Harmony has her TV show,Dracula love it , young Giles and fun little stories like Spot the Vampire We also get backstory of the slayer and vampire history, providing answers to things pondered about, like why only one slayer is chosen and how it could be possible for a vampire to live in the daylight.I honestly wasn t expecting to enjoy it near as much, knowing there were various art styles and that these would be mostly stories not much involving Buffy characters I know and love Yet in doing so it allowed me to see that I love the characters equally as much as the world and the style of storytelling Buffy offers I would definitely recommend it to any fan of Buffy and I think this collection is a great way to go from issue to issue.4.5 5.0

    As a huge Buffy fan, I probably give thisstars than it deserves It s a collection of comics stories about Slayers first half of the book and about Vampires second half Some are crossovers, or involve characters with whom we are acquainted Others are surprising or stand alone They are uneven, since they were written and illustrated by multiple writers and artists Some of the art is stylized for the time and works very well, such as the one set in the West, or horseback Others felt As a huge Buffy fan, I probably give thisstars than it deserves It s a collection of comics stories about Slayers first half of the book and about Vampires second half Some are crossovers, or involve characters with whom we are acquainted Others are surprising or stand alone They are uneven, since they were written and illustrated by multiple writers and artists Some of the art is stylized for the time and works very well, such as the one set in the West, or horseback Others felt out of sync, and I wondered where these artists came from

    As a collection of short tales, okay, sure, this was all right, but nothing special Nothing really stood out, and the only thing I remember was that there was a tale within a tale thing, and I liked the frame story, but it ended up being less than stellar.The art, though A lot of it was striking, really striking For some reason I m not a person who normally notices this kind of thing , the colors stood out as being just amazing, with a really cool frame of a garishly underlit face that I rea As a collection of short tales, okay, sure, this was all right, but nothing special Nothing really stood out, and the only thing I remember was that there was a tale within a tale thing, and I liked the frame story, but it ended up being less than stellar.The art, though A lot of it was striking, really striking For some reason I m not a person who normally notices this kind of thing , the colors stood out as being just amazing, with a really cool frame of a garishly underlit face that I really liked

    My Real Rating I was stuck between giving this a 2.5 and and 3 But 2.5 it is.I thought the art in this book was absolutely beautiful, but the stories just didn t deliver Some were quite uniqueSonnenblume, Spot the Vampire which was completely adorable , The Thrill and Carpe Noctemthe others were dull.

    I borrowed this book from the library When Liam and I saw it, we both pretty much said the same thing That s a big book Inside the cover of this big book are tales of slayers past, present, and future Also, tales of vampires you guessed it past, present, and future Some of the stories were good, some okay, a couple of stories were really good Speaking of good, the slayer origin stories start with the first slayer, who I particularly love I have always thought her story would make I borrowed this book from the library When Liam and I saw it, we both pretty much said the same thing That s a big book Inside the cover of this big book are tales of slayers past, present, and future Also, tales of vampires you guessed it past, present, and future Some of the stories were good, some okay, a couple of stories were really good Speaking of good, the slayer origin stories start with the first slayer, who I particularly love I have always thought her story would make an excellent novel Righteous, a story of a devout slayer from the dark ages, is my favourite of the bunch There is a theme running throughout the slayer stories that is neatly tied up through the final story of future slayer Maleka Fray That is all I will say about that.We get some Buffy, we get some witchy Willow, we get some Maleka Fray, we get a young Giles in a don t blink or you ll miss him cameo However, there is definitely something missing That witty writing that I come to expect from Joss Whedon being my main criticism The magic is just not there for me The second half of the Tales deals with the vampires I think I liked these stories a bit better There is also a theme that ties all of the vamp stories together ish in a sort of Watcher way You can t have slayers and vamps without Watchers There is a Dracula Buffy Zander the Manservant story that was everything I was missing from most of the other stories The Angel story was as intense as you would want, cuz it s Angel My favourite vamp story of the lot was about Dru and Spike It added a new dimension to her backstory and I loved it Like the first slayer, I think Drusilla s story is one of the richest in the Buffy verse and would make an excellent novel I d definitely buy it The artwork is beautiful, creative, sometimes dark, sometimes colourful, and always awesome, of course Overall, an impressive and big tome
