Joss is penning a series in the Runaways comic line. Maybe if I was up on my Marvel universe, I'd like it, but I have to say...no. Not that Joss isn't doing it for me, the series isn't doing it. I'm just really not a comic girl. I'm pretty much reading Buffy 8 because I want more Buffy. But reading a comic does not flow like watching an episode, and sometimes I get lost in the transitions and scene changes, because there are no easily recognizable faces, outside of comic Buffy, comic Xander (easy with the eyepatch, natch), comic Giles, and usually comic Willow. Frankly, anyone else starting off the scene, and if I can't immediately discern from the dialogue (like, the first line), I get lost and have to try to figure it out. It's just not the same. But it's Buffy the way Joss means it to be, so I'll keep reading. And Angel Season 6, too. Because it's Joss. But I just can't ride with the rest of it. I'm just not a comics girl.
Having read another Runaways, I have to correct myself. I actually like it MORE than I like the Buffy series. It's more Buffyesque, if you know what I mean, than the Buffy series.
Well, yes, since it's Joss. :)
and btw, i hear the ripper movie is back on...thank you, bbc!
