From Buffy Season 8 #12


Dark Horse Comics, the publisher of Buffy’s comic strip, estimates that since the comic’s inception in March 2007, more than 1 million issues have been sold, approximately 120,000 each month.

Did I post this image for shock value? You Bet.

Did I post this image to titillate those of you who get off on this type of thing? You Bet.

Did I post this image to raise a ruckus over Buffy potentially being gay? You Bet.

From the art, to the color scheme, to the positioning of the bodies, to the one word reaction to the event, this is a panel that I feel is one of those top notch examples of storytelling.

  2. Personally, I don’t see the big deal about this.

    Does this make Buffy gay? Probably not.

    She’s slept with two vampires, but that doesn’t make her a necrophile.

    Or does it…
