A/N: This is Season 9 snark in the vein of all the hilariously bitter Season 8 snark to come before, a la Curse You, FOX, For Tricking Me Thrice! Also, inspired by chats and whinging with local_max.

My urge to read ALL THE THINGS is re-awakening, and I've decided I want to venture forth into reading more comics besides my Buffyverse monthlies and the occasional X-Men issue. I'm planning on hunting down library copies of some of these works, simply because I price-shopped on Amazon and I'm pretty sure dropping a few hundred dollars on comics is not the best investment. I'm also not interested in reading comics digitally, especially when it comes to such a visually-based medium, so I gotta get my hands on these babies without breaking my bank.
I've listed a few titles that I've been meaning to read for forever and a day, but I'm actually gonna get myself together and do it. Let's talk comics, y'all. Tell me all about your favorites (in a vague-ish, non-spoiler-y way!) and what you'd recommend pour moi. Or warn me away from the comics you think I'd HATE with the passion of a thousand suns.
TELL ME THINGS. LET'S POLL.

Timeline: Buffy Season 9: Free Fall | Issue 1
Spoilers: Vague-ish for Season 8, I guess, and obviously the preview for Season 9.
Author's Note: I noticed Buffy's shirt changed in the behind-the-scenes look at the artistic process for this page and I was inspired to write this bit wherein I channel Buffy in all her rambling glory.
