Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Long Way Home (Book #58)
The Long Way Home (Joss Whedon, 2007) is, if I understand this correctly, a compilation of the first five issues of the "Buffy: Season 8" comic series. And it really does feel like reading episodes of the show, and fairly ordinary episodes. There's no "Once More With Feeling," "Hush," or "Becoming" here. But ordinary Buffy is still pretty damn entertaining. (Here I could make all my usual envious comments about Joss Whedon's storytelling gifts.) I don't think I'll ever love the comics as I did the show, but if it's got Joss's name on it, I'll try it.
