I’ve started reading comics, for a long time now I’ve been reading quite a few web comics. There are 24 web comics on my iGoogle page. Not all of the actually update, but most of them do and I really enjoy them. Recently, due to a blogging god of mine giving a list of real comics he thinks are worth reading. So I’m most of the way through Miracle Man and have The Watchmen lying around waiting to be read.
It wont surprise many of you to learn that I love Buffy, so when I heard about the cannon continuation of the Buffy story line (commonly referred to as Buffy Season 8) I had to grab it and read it. So this last week I’ve spent some of my spare time reading the 34 comics. I must say they are fantastic. The story is enthralling and the art is great.
But its a comic, comics are worse than TV shows, with TV you only have to wait a week for the next episode. Comics are typically monthly! Heck, this most recent Buffy #34 < Spoiler > is just one long sex scene < /spoiler >. Sure there’s some juxtaposed explanation of the previous plot lines, but really it is just one scene.
It took me maybe 5-10 minutes to read and now to wait another month (actually this wait might be shorter, as I didn’t read it till well after the release date I believe). I have a feeling I’ll keep reading each month through the end of Season 8 (another 6 comics) then not start reading Season 9 till it is finished.
PS: When is Xander going to kiss a guy? Not that I’ll particularly enjoy it, but nearly every other long running character has had some gay action, why not Xander?
