The Core, issue #23

Glare
I just read the last BtVS issue, the #23.

It was a strong issue: lot of actions, Buffy and Willow working together, the characterizations and the dialogues not so dull and a great coloring (Loved shining the red light on Willow's chest. Love me some good coloring) I'm positively impressed after so many MEH issues. And I want to thank Dawn, who wrote that letter about Spike and his awful characterization made by Gage.

THANK YOU. You expressed my opinions and I'm glad that the super-writers there know it. They deserve to be called out for that shit. Also the letter was very polite and honest, so kudos. Since there are some fans who are capable of insulting people they don't know because of their beloved pairing or beloved character, that's a form of expression we need to treasure. Clarity, respect and honesty.

Yup. I liked it too; one of the better issues of the series IMO. So glad to see my beloved scoobies acting recognizably. And I thought the art was gorgeous!

Yes, it was one of the better issues of all the comic series. Finally! I generally don't like Jeanty's work, but I have to admit that there are some gorgeous panels. He did a good job with this issue.

Yup! Definitely one of the better Dark Horse issues IMO too. And you inspired me: I just posted my own thoughts!

Clarity, respect and honesty.

THIS. I think this needs to be pasted up on everyone's computers if they're interacting with other people at all on the web (although the folks who really need it don't think they do, so it's sort of preaching to the choir in a way, sadly.)

I think those three words also sum up the basis of constructive criticism. Very well said.

Thank you! I also hope to always be that kind of fan.
