More Spuffy feels - Buffy Season 10 #14

I haven't read it yet, just seen lots of spoiler images (here) but it looks like tomorrow's Buffy comic (issue #14) is going to be a total Spuffy feast.

Good writing, bad writing, cheesy fanservice, at this point I don't care and am just basking in the Spuffiness of it all. Of course it's bound to go horribly wrong again any time now.

Also, it seems I totally called the identity of the bad guy based on the solicitation and covers of #16. That's a first (and probably last) for me!

Finally, sorry for not even managing to make a measly one post per month. I just don't know where to find the time.

I didn't like S8 much either, but I've been enjoying S10 so far. Not that it comes anywhere near the show, of course. But it has Spuffy! And Spike with kittens!

I read it and it made me so happy! X3

Adorable issue and I like the Big Bad too and yes, I'm enjoying the Spuffyness while it lasts. Maybe they're going to ruin everything horribly but for now everything is Spuffy and nothing hurts.

I've seen mixed reactions to the issue (also from Spuffy fans), but still I'm really looking forward to reading it! I'm sure I will be enjoying it, even if it's only for the lovely Spuffy visuals.

I wasn't interested in comics until season 10. Because of the spuffiness, I did buy the digital copies of 11, 12,13 and I'm excited for 14.

You are correct, it most likely won't last long but I'm basking in it while it last.

So did you already get your copy and did you enjoy reading it? I prefer to read my comics on paper rather than digitally, so I won't be getting my copy until tomorrow evening.

I did get #14 today and I did read it. I enjoyed it but to me the spuffiness was better in #12.

I've read it now too and it's the same for me. There was a lot to love, but some of it was a bit disappointing too. The reactions I've seen so far are rather mixed, also among Spuffy shippers.

Hmm, while enjoying the Spuffiness in the previous arc, I'm beginning to feel it's a bit too much myself.

This is partly because it gives me even more of a 'the rug is going to be pulled out from under me any moment' feeling, and partly because I think they're overdoing it, which in itself makes me suspicious.

But even if it is just straight-up what it seems, I think it's now time to rein back on the Spuffyness a bit and get back to other plots (Xander/Anya, for instance).

I mean, it is nice to be pandered to (especially after season 8), but I always feel like I have gen readers looking over my shoulder and scowling. :(

Totally my problem.

I agree on both counts. I already had the feeling they were overdoing it with the previous issue. I mean, Spike cuddling kittens? Half-naked tortured Spike in chains? Buffy telling Willow how happy Spike makes her? It just felt like they had tried to cram in as many things as possible that would be bound to please Spike/Spuffy fans. Mind you, I'm not saying I didn't appreciate those things, I've been lapping it all up so far :-) But at the same time it did and does make feel uncomfortable. And it looks like this will hold even more for #14 (which I still haven't read yet).

I dunno if it's more.

It's certainly not less, though.

It does occur to me that the Spuffy Latino Collective may have kidnapped Christos Gage's cat and are threatening to pull its whiskers out if he doesn't give them exactly what they want. ;)

Yeah, I've read the comic now and I also wouldn't say it's more. (I did expect it to be, based on those Spufftastic spoiler images.)

LOL! I wouldn't put it beyond them! Poor kitty :-)

I'm with Shapinglight in being unable to relax and enjoy the Spuffy because part of me is still convinced that at any minute the writers will go "HA HA!" in a Nelson Muntz voice and reveal that it's all been a cruel joke. As they do. But damn, it's nice while it lasts.

Oh yes, it is! I expect that #14 will make me happy, scared and suspicious in about equal amounts. Love your icon, BTW! I really need to get myself some extra icon space and then I'd love to snag it, if I can?

Sure, snag away!
