For now it doesn't seem Angel did anything. Dru says Spike saved Xander by not finishing the siring process because he saw himself in Xander, then she calls him a fool & compares him and Xander by the fact both are in love with the wrong girl.Just got caught up.
1) new art sucks!
2) lots of new vampire-y lore. Xander seemed to be mostly himself until he vamped our, very distinct shift which is interesting. ‘Soul tie’ rather than orb.
3) I guess Angel did manage to stop them as it’s only half done?!
Not really. I wanted it to keep him in the Buffy comics with the other characters I liked. Him getting his own series, I didn't ask for & have nothing to do with. I'd be fine if he didn't.He has his own comic series. Do you want him to be the Wolverine of the Buffyverse where every story and every comic has to revolve around him? There's only been 5 comics thus far. Why should Angel do anything?
Why bring him over if he isn't going to do anything? It is misleading to mention him in an effort to get people excited only to not use him in any way.He has his own comic series. Do you want him to be the Wolverine of the Buffyverse where every story and every comic has to revolve around him? There's only been 5 comics thus far. Why should Angel do anything?
I disagree. We have not seen anything previously which shows that Willow and Xander have a really deep strong friendship. We've seen her and Buffy cancel plans on him, ignore him, briefly wonder where he is but not follow it up (despite saying that it was out of character), bitch about him about him not being there, now all of a sudden Willow is crying over him as if they're inseparable when she couldn't be bothered to give him the time of day in other issues. Buffy and Willow have cancelled plans on Xander in an earlier issue so why is he the one being nicknamed "Captain Xander bails-a-lot".I didn't mind Buffy and Willows negative comments about Xander because they showed how much they cared in other parts - Buffy crying while looking for a vamp to take her shopping, and Willows crying and refusing to leave his bedside.
You can read it here. The Comic Slayer is a great resource.Why didn't we see Buffy go to the magic shop? Seeing her and Anya meet could have been cool.
