Issue twelve of Joss Whedon's Buffy Season 8 comic is a keeper: Alias, Lost and Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard returns to the Buffyverse for a romp that includes (SPOILER ALERT) sex starved Buffy's* first lesbionic experience (not at the... uh... hands of Willow), goth Japanese ninja vampires, farce worthy of Sturgess, Superman: The Movie references courtesy of nerd vilian turned Watcher Warren, and Dracula. The art is exceptional, the script perfect, the plot bombshells are clever and worthy of the advance hype, and like a great comic it makes me wish that the next issue came out tomorrow (on it's own special day no less).

* Angel and Spike are in their own comic published by a different company.
