- A calling for suggestions for fanfics based on the comics -
Any size, rate, pairing, kind; can conflict with subsequent stories, be little headcanons, simply contain one of the new characters or contexts… Not only because I’m in need for new readings, but I could share an ongoing list with recommendations, I think it would be interesting to maintain.
Fresh from his latest attempt to get Buffy to act on her feelings for him, Spike has fled to the dark side of the moon. His trip leads him to a group of dangerous demons and a rude awakening from his reverie, which in turn leads him on an unexpected adventure to… Sunnydale!
Writer: Victor Gischler; Penciller: Paul Lee; Inker: Andy Owens, Dexter Vines; Colorist: Cris Peter; Cover: Jenny Frison; Alternative cover: Steve Morris.
I found this on the web. I haven’t read this comic, but this is apparently from Buffy Season 8 and was written by Jane Espenson. She is a Spuffy fan (from what I’ve heard), so I’m not interested in reading this specific issue. However, what interest me about this scene is how Spike remembers Dru’s beautiful head. Awww… so sweet!
The best part of Magical Mystery Tour isn’t the Beatles-iriffic title, or even the title page, which is stylized like the logo of the Beatles movie. It’s not the page before this one where Spike says he’s gonna need a giant novelty calender. (See the ‘sexy bug’ on that calender?) It’s not the part where he’s trying to ride around in one of the little suits the bugs wear. It’s not the part where he makes decorations out of their detached legs. (Gross, William…) It’s not even the part where he returns to earth and asks Buffy to borrow a tooth brush…
The best part of Magical Mystery Tour is where Spike teaches the Bugs to write poetry.
And using the poetry! His caring for “the beetles”, the comical absurds of the situation… It is such an adorable issue. Makes me miss the spaceship.
Collecting the heroic Scooby gang and some of Sunnydale’s most monstrous villains this set features such familiar faces as the Slayer herself Buffy Summers, Witch-In-Training Willow, and mild-mannered Watcher Giles as well as the villainous Master and the terrible trio of Spike, Drusilla and Angelus!
