Buffy Summers is 30!

Ok, aside from making you feel old, Buffy’s birthday this year also marks the release of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #40 (pictured here, with my crudely added party hats), the final issue of Season 8. While I haven’t followed all of Season 8—admittedly, I have some of Season 7 on DVD left to watch—I find it an interesting way to continue a television show after it’s no longer on TV. (Caprica and SGU, are you listening?)

There are several locations where you can join in some birthday celebrations this Wednesday with prizes, giveaways, games and some special guests. But if you’re not in any of these neighborhoods, at least celebrate by finishing out Season 8 (and don’t worry; Season 9 is in the works) or by picking up the new hardcover Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales—check out my full review on the next page.
