Okay. I tried to be charitable here, but I have this sinking feeling that Giles and the others are gonna screw Faith over somehow. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's just a feeling I have. I really hope I'm wrong here. Then again, maybe Brian will surprise us all and something good will happen.





What am I saying, this is Buffy we're talking about.

I think, to give the story intensity and an arc, they have put Faith at odds w/Giles & Buffy....
Faith always had a lot of pain which led to being a loner...
and it looks to me like she'll be able to understand Gigi, and maybe save her....

But I believe in Faith's redemption, I have always believed in Faith's eventual redemption!

Well in this episode it looks like Faith is doing the screwing of the over. Perhaps not a lot but she is definitely on the "I'm doing this on my own" track. Plus only 2 D&D adds in this ish. I wonder if Hasbro is running out of money?

This issue was great, but man, did it seem short! I think we really could've done without the Dawn/Willow scene in this one in favor of three more pages of the Faith/Gigi story.

And I guess we finally have a pretty good idea who's hovering feet those were in issue #1: Gigi's Irish warlock guy (name escapes me just now). All--or at least, most--of the photos of Buffy seen at the end look to have been taken during that raid on the church back in #1. His gargoyles were probably carrying him as he played 'evil paparazzi' (actually, that's redundant, isn't it?)...

Loved the issue.

But I'm not really fearing that Giles and Buffy will screw her over. I am, however, fearing the death of Faith before the arc ends.

'Cuz that would REALLY suck. Period.

well folks must've read up by now -
and another fun issue on the stands - yummy treats:)

but seriously -
ok so moral questoins or what???

Select to view spoiler:



would Buffy have killed Geniveve? looks like the dark horse board thought so... willow asks about the grunts and buff is pretty much 'whack em!'.

naked faith and gigi discuss dirty paedos - was it just me that found that unsettling, or what???

Giles and Buff still can't plan in unison ha! ha!

nice to see Willow got a little dark mojo still.

don't teleports just, y'know, SUCK?

didn't Faith seem way younger than in Orpheus or Buffy7???



what did people make of the latest ish?

That was a little....strange....

Buff seemed a little mean to Faith...but I guess we were seeing it more from Faith's POV anyway.

Lovin' it Chrisisall

Buffy has been pretty touchy around Faith for a long time now...
what w/stealing her body & sleeping w/her boyfriend and all...
I'm not surprised that things aren't better between them, and I'm guessing that something had happened to make things worse:
we still don't know why Faith was living along in a slum in Cleveland when clearly Robin was training potentials near-by...

I'm looking forward to the rest of this arc, but I'm guessing there will be a lot of things unresolved to be explored over the next year or two of comic books (I am loving the comic books!).
