With Jordan reanimated and the law closing in, things are getting pretty hot for the brothers and their associates. With the “mongrels” running amok, too, a lot is set to go wrong and gory.
Previously, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Scoobies assembled to take on Hungrus and save Buffy. Willow’s increasing magic use was becoming an issue of concern and contention.
It’s all come down to the Big Damn Finale! What is this finale? The best denouement for this series in which we see the crew move forward and wrap up our Jayne-centric story in a poignant way. With loose ends to wrap up with delicate diplomacy between the different factions on Requiem and farewells to say, things are tenuous in a much quieter way.
Picking right up where it left off, Specs #2 examines the aftermath of a monkey’s paw wish that, obviously, went very wrong. With a mere wish, Kenny and Ted wished the school bully out of existence, which is pretty horrific if you think about the people who might actually care for Skunk, bully or not. The horror is not lost on the two best friends as they struggle to move forward, all the while feeling like Damocles’ sword might be hanging over their heads. In a fateful wish to help his friend, and probably to help himself, too, Kenny makes a wish that will change their lives forever.
If you read my reviews, you know by now how much I love time-travel stories. (And if you don’t read my reviews, then I’ll tell you how much I love time-travel stories: quite a lot.) Just from the description of Vicious Circle, I knew it would be a lot of fun, and, indeed, it did not disappoint. It’s pure, mind-bending, era-hopping temporal shenanigans at their finest.
In a world deeply divided by the haves and have-nots, a wealthy family deals with the unimaginable—the murder of their only child.
Previously, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Even without her powers, Buffy still retained some link to her destiny. Unfortunately, that also meant that her Slayer essence could still be sensed by Hungrus the Vampire Devourer. Will Buffy prove to be an easy snack or a meal that Hungrus will choke on?
Previously, the Cameron Brothers, along with Stella and Frankie, returned to their childhood stomping grounds to start over in an old, abandoned mansion. Things go sideways pretty quickly due to the Cameron Brothers’ mutual interest in Stella.
Mexican-American (and questioning) teenager Javi and his friends want to host a party the weekend his parents are out of town. This party will be different, though, as it’s their chance to propel themselves to popularity. Javi just has to convince his sister and avoid the party getting too rowdy. But just as things are starting to look up, everything takes a turn for the absolute worst in the first issue of It’s Only Teenage Wasteland.
You might think I live under a rock, and, sometimes, I think I do, but I came into this graphic novel cold. I’d heard the name before, and though I’m not a big fan of horror, I like to expand my horizons. I’m happy to say I was glad I chose this story.
