As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.
In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-host Bryant Dillon is joined by special guests Cynthia Wang (Associate Professor at Cal State LA, Founder of The Arqive), Don Aguillo (artist – Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, Scout Comics’ Rise, Fanbase Press’ The Sequels, co-founder of In Hiatus Studios), and Raf Salazar (freelance artist, co-founder of In Hiatus Studios) to participate in a thorough discussion regarding Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) in light of the film’s 30th anniversary, with topics including the differences in Slayer/Watcher mythology between the film and TV series, the “ickiness” of Buffy’s vampiric presence-indicating cramps, if the film’s director and the studio misinterpreted the necessary tone of writer Joss Whedon’s script, and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Buffy the Vampire Slayer abound in this panel discussion!)
