So, I was thinking of starting to read Buffyverse comics, and I've heard that Angel and Faith is better than Buffy season 9, but will it make sense if I only read Angel and Faith? Or are there crossovers? Also, can I read it without having read season 8 of Buffy? I know the general gist of what happened at the end of that, so...I just worry about how expensive following two comic series would be. I already buy one comic regularly (Smallville) and being a cheap uni student don't really want to spend too much money.
