Read Barbarian Girl: The Burning Blade of the Badlands Part 1 by Gene Ambaum and Willow Payne
Unshelved comic strip for 12/7/2008

Winter Vacation

This time every December my family takes a short vacation in the mountains to play in the snow. Well this year there is no snow (though there is some rain scheduled) but we're still going. While I'm gone we're going to run one of my favorite Unshelved sequences from a few years back. Enjoy!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It's a sign of just how big a fanboy I am that hosting a Buffy the Vampire Slayer sponsorship makes me feel a little like Joss Whedon and I are best friends. 'Cause you know, we totally are.

Anyway, longtime Unshelved readers know that I am a huge fan of all the great man's work, beginning with Buffy. It went off the air a few years back, but Joss decided to continue the series in comic book form. He even called it Season 8. The third volume Wolves at the Gate (Adobe Reader required) is out now. It features Buffy in a team-up with Dracula, written by Buffy scribe Drew Goddard (along with an interlude written by Joss). Gene and I both read it the other day and agreed that the dialog really popped in a way that made us jealous and bitter. You'll love it.
