Still? The Twilight Controversy Continues (Spoilers)

(Beware: Twilight Spoiler) Unless you've been living under a rock...nope, not even then...unless you were born 5 minutes ago, you know about the craziness of the last few days. Let's see: We've got the unexpected Twilight cover reveal, the admission that the covers were actually real reveal, the subsequent release of more Twilight art/interviews reveal, and so much more in between. I'm getting tired just thinking about it.

Today seemed different, though, like it was the day of reconciliation. It started with the release of Scott Allie's statement on Dark Horse and then the Mtv article featuring Joss Whedon, himself, making a statement about the matter. We even got preview pages for Buffy Issue #32! If only I could somehow insert the sound of a record scratching right now I surely would because, man, the healing knife wound of the Buffyverse got ripped wide open a few hours ago with the release of this statement by Bill Willingham.

I'm not sure how this will be reconciled, but there definitely needs to be an end to the entire "He said/She said" of the thing. Let's hug it out people. Besides, we just found out that Twilight is friggin' Angel! I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be discussing the endless possibilities of that one.

I figured Angel as Twilight would cause problems. Let the roaring rumpus begin! Or, if IDW and Dark Horse become more friendly, then let the hoot nanny begin! Whole lotta hoot and a little bit of nanny.

I hope it works out. I'm getting ready to cancel my subscriptions b/c I've felt both comis lately have gone a little to far out into fantasy land.

Thanks for the links.

Its interesting what Bill Willingham said about Joss not being contactable for the Angel series- this probably explains why the Angel comics have not been that great, reading more like fan fiction than anything.

Anyway personally I think this story's going to run until the arc and probably the season is finished!!
