It shouldn't surprise most when I say that I'm a little disappointed with the Buffy comics lately. It's more the pace of the thing and this ongoing Twilight mystery that has me somewhat annoyed and left a little...empty. I will say that the last issue with the Buffy/Giles love (eww, not that kind) was a refreshing improvement. Check out Bitsy's Bearded Buffyfest Review for a more entertaining and coherent explanation of the greatness of the issue.
There is one thing I never grow tired of in regards to these comics and that is the amazing cover art of Ms. Jo Chen. The girl has amazing talent. Most times I get more enthralled by the Buffy covers than I do when I venture inside the pages. And as if I was blessed with a gift of my very own, Jo Chen was given the task of drawing the inside art of Dark Horse's recent ecomic, "Always Darkest" which includes a few panels of Angel. Yay! Oh, and it was penned by Joss Whedon, too.
Slayerlit recently interviewed Jo Chen and her intelligence, artsy sensibility and humbleness really shines through. Go here: http://www.slayerlit.us/interviews/interview23.htm
Also, don't think that Chen is only able to draw one awesome female super hero. Check out this amazing sketch of Wonder Woman and more of her stuff here.
