Jo Chen's cover for issue 16 shows two Slayers, two scythes (actually axes). Buffy. Melaka. Together. Plummeting from the sky in a futuristic cityscape.
If you don't have and don't want a Myspace account to view the scan, let me know and I'll mirror somewhere.
Discuss. Too little too late? Too gimmicky? I find it unsurprising, because it's been clear that Twilight is on course to cause the no-Slayer future of Fray. And Fray is Whedon's personal future Buffy-canon. The question for me is, can the guy learn to write a comics script that doesn't leave me yawning and vaguely irritated that I had to wait a month for five minutes of plot motion? And will there ever be more Giles? I watched the show for the ensemble, and I want the ensemble.
ETA: Here's the cover.
