uffy and Joss Whedon fans were delighted to discover that there would be a graphic novel version of
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
, continuing on from the end of the show. But fans also know there are two true slayers currently alive in the Buffyverse, and in
No Future For You
, with help from writer Brian K. Vaughan (of
Y: The Last Man
) we get the story on what the other slayer has been up to.
atcher's Council extraordinaire Rupert Giles needs the help of Faith - the other slayer who has always seen Buffy as the perfect blond who can do no wrong, while she is a convicted murderer and has always had to fight for everything in her life. But Giles has a mission for Faith now: to infiltrate the mansion of a rich family in England and take out a girl who is using all her power and resources to kill slayers and anyone with slayer abilities. Faith will have to go through a rigorous training process in being a proper English aristocrat. She will also have her faith tested in being a good person, as she finds she has a lot in common with this girl who wants to put an end to Buffy.
eanwhile back in the castle where Buffy is, Dawn still has her
problem, Xander is making with the hilarities, while Willow continues to be an awesome witch with a scary amount of power ... and there is the strange sigil that continues to have deep and sinister ties. The graphic novel story continues to be an entertaining tale as good as the original TV series.
