Get over 1,300 pages of the older Buffy comics digitally for 29.99USD. It's one shots and mini series pre-Tales of the slayers. It's not all of the older comics, but a fair amount.

PS. I think they re-named issue 20 called 'Double Cross'. It now seems to be named 'Graduation Day'. I just e-mailed them about that.

New-ish book: Buffy and the Heroine's Journey

This came out in late February, but maybe you're like me and missed it.

Buffy and the Heroine's Journey: Vampire Slayer as Feminine Chosen One

"The worlds of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and other modern epics feature the Chosen One--an adolescent boy who defeats the Dark Lord and battles the sorrows of the world. Television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer represents a different kind of epic--the heroine's journey, not the hero's. This provocative study explores how Buffy blends 1990s girl power and the path of the warrior woman with the oldest of mythic traditions. It chronicles her descent into death and subsequent return like the great goddesses of antiquity. As she sacrifices her life for the helpless, Buffy experiences the classic heroine's quest, ascending to protector and queen in this timeless metaphor for growing into adulthood."

Amazon link here. Don't miss to see the huge price difference between paperback version and Kindle version.

Not sure if it's still more common to have a boy as the Chosen One as before, but this still seems like a interesting read.

Time to brag

So I made some stuff. I used decoupage, comic images, paint, scrapbooking, a Buffy book, etc etc to make some canvases, a magazine holder and a playset.

Look here and here.
