Buffy Season 8 Concludes...and the Slayer Turns 30!





With the Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake talk heating up, hard-core fans still have the Season 8 comics to keep them company with the final issue coming out in just a few weeks. In addition, Buffy herself is turning 30, and to celebrate both the end of Season 8 and the birthday of the beloved character, Dark Horse has announced six Buffy Birthday Parties across the country!

From the Press Release:
Careful readers may have noticed that the release date of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #40 has been moved to January 19, 2011. The change in date is no accident. The final issue of the much-talked-about series will hit shelves on the birthday of Buffy Summers.

Dark Horse editor Scott Allie had this to say about the event: "It's been a long, strange ride to the end of Buffy's eighth season, and when we realized that her thirtieth birthday fell on a Wednesday, the day new comics go on sale, we realized we had to move our release date to coincide. We're excited to celebrate this landmark occasion and hope we can gather good crowds of Buffy readers and fans together to wish her well as she heads off for Season 9, a little bit older, her head hung low..."

It's hard to believe the vampire slayer is another year older, but time and tide wait for no man, woman, or demon. If, while reading this, you notice your local comic shop is not listed as hosting a party, have the shop's owner contact Dark Horse, who will provide them with activity sheets to host their own event.

I LOVED Buffy until Season 7 damn near killed the show.

I had hoped that 'Season 8' would right the ship but, after about 15 issues, I couldn't take it anymore.
