Download Kindle ♚ Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Panel to Panel ☨

I m Liking This Book ,But I m Not Done So Hold On If you are a huge fan of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series published by Dark Horse comics from 1998 until recently when Buffy creator Joss Whedon took the reins of the series this book will be an absolute treat Artwork from those early Buffy comics is reproduced here at a large size with commentary from the editor involved with the series from the beginning There s some nice stuff in here, especially the contributions from John Totleben I can t help but wonder, is there a fan base for these comics large enough to support a book like this I know there are fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer so dedicated they d buy Buffy brand ice cubes but this seems such a weirdly small and specific area of comic publishing to do a lavishly illustrated book.

Best moment Three of the editors artists are sitting at a cafe and Sarah Michelle Gellar walks by and sits two tables away They deate if they should be all, hey, we draw comics of you and we actually have stuff here and COOL RIGHT Scott, the main dude, shoots them down because he finds the whole thing terribly awkward He then tells this story to Joss, who tells him they probably avoided getting charged for stalking HA There is not enough Giles in this book, but then again, there was only 1 Giles centric comic in the entire series, so um, there you go. I read the Buffy Season 8 and 9 comics but I have never really been interested in the multitude of other Buffy comics out there Buffy the Vampire Slayer Panel to Panel is an art book that is an overview of the Buffy comics that were written while the show was still on The concept art is really interesting as are the notes. My sisters are huge fans of Buffy I have seen a little of the show, but I am not a raving fan I have not read any of the graphic novel comic book adaptions of the show, so this art was all new to me Some of it I liked and actually looked at for a few minutes, the rest was just okay It just felt like a compilation, and they threw everything, and anything, in. Maybe that s just the nerd in me talking but I really like this book It displays the best images from various Buffy hmm, what s the best way to describe them graphic novels i suppose This book has good images in nice big glossy detail Its funny though that sometimes the artists take creative licensing with how they draw Buffy both physically and facially and you have to just assume the blonde chick with the stake is Buffy cause other than that she bears no resemblance to Sarah Michelle Geller But worth a look if you like comic art and Buffy the Vampire Sayer. More pictures on my blog This is a huge artbook with the cover art that s printed on some shiny surface Mine was scratched slightly, and I could see parts where the ink came off and the silver shine behind The reproduction on the thick paper is great It s 192 pages total.The book features art from the comics up to the Season 7 The illustrations are beautiful and printed big I like the strong use of blacks for negative space which gives the art impact In fact, I pretty much prefer the outlined comic art compared to the painted ones without them If you follow the comics, then the commentary by Scott Allie will havecontext.There s also a good varied style to look at, with art from Chris Bachalo, J Scott Campbell, Jeff Matsuda, Mike Mignola, Terry Moore, Eric Powell, Tim Sale and Ryan Sook and .Nice book for comic art fans.
