Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight

Four issues into the eight season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and so far I am pretty impressed.  I always thought that Buffy would be easy to convert to comic form, but so far the series has exceeded my expectations.  The writing is stellar, the art is good (especially the third issue cover of Willow), and in general I am pleased.  Having to wait a month for another installment is pretty crappy however.  I have always been a pretty low level comic fan; I collected in the early nineties but these days nothing really holds my interest.  One of these days I need to start buying more omnibus and trade paper backs that are available.
