Buffyverse and Rebekah Isaacs? Sign Me UP.

Though I continued to read the regular “season eight” Buffy comics even when they annoyed me this past year, I’d fallen away from the more intense (and frequently confusing for me) Angel stuff.  It’s entirely possible that that’s my fault and that I just wasn’t paying enough attention – there was a lot going on in some of those books.  However drama between Willingham and Whedon’s people over all the Twilight nonsense (which I ended up hating anyway) didn’t help restore a lot of faith in what was going on in the books.  All that to say that I wasn’t really intending to pick up Angel & Faith forthcoming from Dark Horse.  Until today. Until I realized Rebekah Isaacs is going to be drawing it.

And now?  I’m so in motherfuckers.

If you’re a fan of Isaacs, check out the interview at the link where writer Christos Gage tells a pretty great story about working with Isaacs (the rest of the interview is good too).

Also, check out the pieces I wrote on She Has No Head! about Isaac’s work on the miniseries DV8: Gods & Monsters – including a Brian Wood interview –  here, here, and here.  Sue, Maddy, and I have also talked about Isaacs and about her current series Magus on the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast – episode #04 and episode #010.

And here, so you know can know in a moment what you’ve been missing, is my all-time favorite page of Isaac’s from DV8: Gods & Monsters:

    I’m sort of in the same boat.
    Had absolutely no interest in picking up the new Angel/Faith series. Then I read yesterday that Rebekah Isaacs is drawing it.
    Can’t really say I’m happy about it. I mean … I like Rebekah’s work quite a bit so I’m hard pressed to skip the series.
    But I just have zero interest in Angel. Zero. And I’m not really much into Faith as a character either.
    Guess I’ll just have to pick up the first story arc and see if Gage’s script can interest me enough in the characters to stick around.

    @Hutch: Well I think we should both get on and see how it goes! 😉
