Today I picked up my comics from my supplier. I'm sitting here reading the new Spike series, and it's literally laugh out loud funny. Comic books aren't for everyone, and they can get kind of expensive if you read a lot, but if you are a Buffy or Angel fan, I have to recommend a few different series.
at IDW, but if you want to buy comics, if at all possible, try to get them from your local comic book store.
the first TPB from your library to see if you like it. And then find someone who knows more than me and figure out where to go from there. But After the Fall starts directly after the events at the end of season five of the TV show Angel.
The Long Way Home (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8, Vol. 1). Season 8 is just about wrapping up, and I'm not sure if there will be more after this. I haven't loved the whole season--there have been some good parts and some bad, and right now, nearing the end of the season, I'm kind of in a "what the heck?" place with the whole thing. But, if you're a big Buffy fan like me, this is a way to keep on with the story since there's no more show.
To some of you this is all old news, and you're either yawning through my post, or you haven't even read this far. But I'm thinking maybe there's someone out there who was a fan who wasn't aware of these comics, or who was aware and just didn't know if they were any good. I definitely have liked the Angel (and now Spike) series better than the Buffy, but they're both worth reading, for sure.
