You can guess from my Amazon user name I might be biased about this book but I can honestly say this graphic novel is beautiful. If you're a Buffy fan the continued adventures of the Scooby gang has been quite a treat. These 'Library Edition" hardcovers are a great value and well produced. The size is larger than the original comics, these measure about 12.5" high by 8.5" wide. The paper is thick, thicker than a regular comic book, and the colors pop off the page. Binding is very sturdy and there is a sewn in book mark which will help you as you make your way through the 320 pages. This collects issues #11-20 of Season 8 with cover art and "Willow-Goddesses and Monsters", there are about 26 pages devoted to sketchbook drawings. I'm not going to give away any plot spoilers so I'll just say that these are a fun read with 3 of the 5 'episodes' written by Joss Whedon. The interior artwork varies, the covers by Jo Chen are fantastic. I wish there were a way she could do the inside page art as well. Chen really captures the look of Buffy/Gellar and brings her to life. For Buffy fans highly recommended.
