Who knew Buffy the Vampire Slayer had continued on as a comic? Not me until recently I happened to come across it, I don’t remember where. Anyway I’ve just gotten a copy of volume 1: The Long Way Home that collects the first five comics.
Buffy was the first series that I watched straight through on DVD to catch up and it really showed me how epic TV can become when there are so many hours to develop the characters. The usual week between episodes seems to lessen the impact, so I imagine many series are better seen in a marathon one-episode-per-night fest.
