The end is here. Of Buffy Season 8, that is. Today marks the release of the 40th and final issue of this comic book series. I will be picking it up at my local comic book shop this afternoon. But fear not: Season 9 is in the works.
You can read a nice EW.com interview with Joss Whedon about Season 8 here.
And, I came across this today: a 3 1/2-minute animated sample of what might have been "Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the Animated Series." The artistic style and storyline look suspiciously like what became an issue of Season 8.
