Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Season 9 #10Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 9 #10
Story by Andrew Chambliss and Scott Allie
Pencils by Cliff Richards
Ink by Andy Owens
Colors by Michelle Madsen
Cover by Phil Noto
Alternate Cover by Georges Jeanty with Dexter Vines and Michelle Madsen
Created by Joss Whedon
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 13, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Season 9 is all about the big existential questions interspersed with some brief action scenes and lovey bits thrown in. Joss Whedon is still the producer and occasional writer of his original creation, so all of those elements seem just as entertaining and challenging as ever. The Apart (Of Me) storyline has been no exception with Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #10 rounding up the arc in an orderly fashion. There are no big explosions or revelations, but with a more internalized plot like this one, that would have just been rather tacky. Not to worry, there is stuff actually happening.

Buffy-Bot (body of robot, brain o’ Buffy) and Buffy-Not (body of Buffy, brain o’ Robot) get in a tussle with the latest big bad, the rough slayer Simone, Spike’s “bug army” shows up, Detective Dowling is upset over the loss of his partner turned zompire Cheung, Buffy makes a decision about her coffee shop gig, Spike and Buffy make some progress in their relationship etc. All that is rather important, as it sets up the next wave of Buffydom tales in a very natural manner.

Dollhouse, Vol. 1: Epitaphs is the trade paperback that collects the first five volumes of the post-apocalyptic follow up to Joss Whedon’s short-lived Fox series.

For the unfamiliar, Dollhouse was about the secretive Rossum Corporation, who serviced a high-class clientele by providing them with male and female escorts who would be anybody (and do anything) they’d want. To achieve this, they leveraged a technology allowing them to wipe the minds of their escort “actives” and imprint custom personalities to suit the client. After each mission, the actives would get back a docile blank personality and have no memory of their escort mission.

Release Date: September 14, 2011
Cover Price: $3.50

I’ve only ever watched the first season of the show Dollhouse produced by Joss Whedon and starring frequent collaborator (and overall kickass chick) Eliza Dushku, who starts as Echo, one of the “dolls” in a facility that programs applicants to take on a different identity for each assignment that they’re called to do. I thought the show had a decent concept, especially as some of the “dolls” became more suspicious of the facility and programmers, especially Echo. With that in mind, I thought the graphic novel might have an interesting storyline, especially since some graphic novel adaptations of television shows, like Dark Horse’s Buffy comics, offer some more intriguing takes on things the show couldn’t necessarily execute.

Based upon the creation of Joss Whedon, Dollhouse: Epitaphs #1 is directly linked to the television series. The first issue here introduces us to a world gone crazy with “imprinting.” Imprinting is essentially the forcing of another life and set of memories onto an individual to basically rewrite their brain. New skills, new languages, even new likes/dislikes can be learned in short order. Originally this process was used only on the “dolls” at the different houses across the world, but the comic opens up to mass imprinting via basic communication devices.

We get to meet Trevor, a young boy who is altered to be able to accept information and skills in a slightly different method than the reader/viewer is used to seeing. There are several new characters, well, new to me anyway, that seem to be pivotal to the building storyline.

Buffy Tales

Dark Horse made several announcements related to Joss Whedon-created characters and stories at WonderCon 2011 over the weekend, including Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel.

If you felt like Dollhouse ended its run on television prematurely you’ll be happy to know that Jed Whedon and Andrew Chambliss will be penning a five-issue miniseries set in the near future, picking up where the TV episode “Epitaph” left off. Chambliss may be a familiar name to Vampire Diaries fans, as he also worked on that television series.
