Ok the art for this book was never that great but this issue has brought it to a state of hilarious badness that can only be branded "Hilaribad."

...wow. It's like if John Byrne's She-Hulk run was written by Grant Morrison today.

In other words, to quote Colin Mochrie... "Wow, that was bad, that was really really bad!"

Aside from me going SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESPIKESPIKESPIKESPIKE, I just LOVE that line of Buffy's - "My family is down there." Hell yeah. Promised eternal bliss and a higher destiny, and Buffy goes back for the Scoobies. Fuck. Yes. That's my girl.

A perfectly in character reaction to all this madness.

I just can't understand the logical progression of how we got here.

Lemme just say, the universe has the worst planning ever.

Tell me there's more of an explanation that I've missed, because otherwise, I see it like this:

It sees Buffy has the criteria to become the Ultimate Slayer and already has Angel as its controlled Ultimate Vampire (Shanshu!). So, what does it do?

It turns the public against Slayers and FOR the Vampires through Universe Mind Control (tm), even though it violates all survival instincts known.

It has its cult (because very abomination needs a cult) harass and hunt down Buffy and her crew at every term to keep them on the ropes and unsuspecting.

Gives Buffy superpowers so she can superscrew and thus open up more magic into the world.

End goal? More magic in the universe? Return it to the demons? The Universe wants this?

The Universe is a character now?

I'm just...confused. How many of these steps were necessary? Jasmine had her "Birthing Pains"--but they were more about destruction and chaos. This was more "Piss off your intended chosen one".

How is THAT helpful?

Can I has explanation now?

Gods, that's horrible art. Spike with tiny hands..And BLACK fingernails? Did he ever have his nails done in the show like that? Doesn't seem him. He seemed to be the type of guy who would make fun of people with black fingernails..And tiny hands.

Hmmm. Didn't know James Marsters plays Mister Fantastic in "The Super Hero Squad Show"

And they have a second live action Dragonball movie planned? The heck?

majingojira: (I Reject Your Reality)
From: [personal profile] majingojira
I am, but but if my main gripe with the season remains, I'll remain miffed.

I'd like it cleanly, maybe even explicitly stated that the villain (The Universe) subtle or no, mind controlled people to accept vampires so readily as a prelude to its wish to turn it back into a demonic hellhole.

From that, I can start to work with what I've got.

I feel like I maybe have to get all of Season 8 in my hands and then read it through and maybe it'll be better.  Or fall apart even worse.

I do like that Buffy went back (to save her family from what Angel basically brought down on them, so wtf), so that was like the one shining light here.

"You don't know what came over you."
Ummm, I'm pretty sure we all know it was Angel.

Aw, is that Andrew looking sweetly up at Xander?

"You don't know what came over you."

Yeah, the line by itself would be fine, but it's the inclusion of the word "all" that messes it up. What came all over Buffy? Angel.

Eugh.

So Angel evolved into... an extra on Miami Vice?

Also, Xander, pick your battles. If I had to choose between evolving into a perfect being alongside my one true love or saving Andrew, I'd be gone.

Personally, I'd like to believe Joss wrote that line of Spike's first, and then tried to build a plot to lead up to it.

Because, tell me he wasn't itching to have someone say that.

Okay, so as I read this I went "Hm... they might just be able to salvage this. They might be salvaging this storyline right nowwww..... Oh my God, it's Spike!!! Spike-Spike-Spikespikespikespikespike..eeeeee!!!" Only a few minutes later did I even notice they'd drawn his hands out of proportion, given him not enough rings (and made one of those super girly) and made his nailpolish too perfect looking (seriously, Spike, did you fix your nails on the way to the battle, you diva? your polish looks better than mine, and I don't engage in battles on a regular basis) Am I a complete weirdo, or is this par for the course?

This seems like such an obvious choice for her that the lead-up seems sorta flat. I mean, yeah Angel - don't you know her by now? Were you just thinking that the magical fucking would make the let-down worth it?

Maybe he was.
