Some fans were on the fence about the first volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight. If "No Future For You," the second volume of the series, can't pull them off that fence and over to the rabid fan-boy/girl side, then nothing can, because this is just a solid, solid book.
Brian K. Vaughan takes on writing duties for the main part of this volume, the titular "No Future for You" miniseries. In the story, we catch up with Faith, who is still adjusting to living live as one of the good guys. Like most Joss Whedon (and Brian K. Vaughan, for that matter) works, this is a dark book with a lot of moral ambiguity that perfectly suits Faith and Giles, who is also a major part of this arc. Brian K. Vaughan's writing is great and his intricate knowledge of the medium of comic books makes this a better arc than Joss's own "The Long Way Home."
The story has Faith going up against a rogue slayer, which has her reflecting a lot on her own evil days. Through flashbacks, Vaughan makes strong parallels between Faith's past and the main action of this story, which takes place at a "fancy dress party" in England. Vaughan doesn't let us forget about the Scoobies, who are dealing with their own problems back at the Scottish castle. Another big plus about this story is that the Big Bad of the season is revealed on the final page of #9 (the conclusion to the "No Future for You" arc).
Also included in this book is a one-shot called "Anywhere But Here" (written by Joss Whedon), which is been one of the fan favorites from Season Eight. Artist Cliff Richards (the artist who drew many of the old Buffy comics) takes on art duties for this one issue, which shows Buffy and Willow having a very revealing heart-to-heart conversation... while they go up against a demon that causes reality to buckle around it. This issue alone is worth the price, because not only is it the best example of Joss's writing we've seen up until that point, but it's also a "very special issue" because it pays tribute to a disabled fan of the show who won a Buffy contest. Further comments on the artwork and stories of the individual five issues can be found here: Buffy #6, Buffy #7, Buffy #8, Buffy #9, and Buffy #10.
Overall, this isn't only a book that every Buffy fan should have, it's something that every fan of graphic storytelling should own. It's a perfect example of why this is such a great medium and how the comic book has evolved. It packs an emotional wallop, it's true to the heart of the show, and it's written by two great writers.
