Buffy the Vampire Slayer 26 Oz is back!

The moment most Buffy fans have waited for since the middle of season 4 is here, Daniel “Oz” Osbourne is back! (as seen in the awesome cover on the left)  As I did with the television series, I have blocked myself away from spoilers and the only thing that I know is that the gang goes to Oz for help.  While I have enjoyed the Buffy comic series, it has been a little disjointed and hit or miss. The pacing and flow of the “season’s” story has been off.  With Buffy writer Jane Espenson penning the next few issues I have a lot of hope for this arc.  In fact, I’m keeping this preview short so I can run to the store right now to pick up the issue…

What else is worth your time?

  • Marvel: Cable #16 – Continuing directly from the “Messiah War” crossover with X-Force, Cable is in a bad place and might not be long for this world.
  • DC: Nothing is worth your time this week.
  • Image: Chew #2 – A twisted concept that is both engaging and… well, pretty twisted.
  • IDW: Angel #23 – This book still stinks, but maybe it will get a little better with the return of “After the Fall” writer Brian Lynch. I want to root for this book so badly, except every week that gets harder (and it is not worth the high $3.99 cover price!).
  • Boom! Studios: Irredeemable #4 – My comic book guy recommended this to me. Mark Waid at the top of his game? I’m in.

Chew from Image Comics

What do you get when you mix a detective/cannibal/clairvoyant together? You get Chew, a new ongoing comic from Image Comics by writer John Layman with art by Rob Guillory. The twisted new series focuses on Tony Chu, a cop who can get a psychic impression for anything he eats.  Need to find out who murdered someone? Well, he just needs to nibble on the corpse.  Things get a bit more complicated after the government figures out his secret. I wonder what they are going to make him eat?

The issue hits stands this Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009.
