"The Time Of Your Life" arc just made me stop buying it- I'm curious as to whether it recovered from that four-parter or not.

No. It's a huge pile of dog crap.
The only people that think it's good are sad fanboys that will buy anything Joss has his name stamped on.
Seriously, it's horribly written, and the pacing is just flat out stupid.
The Angel comic was pretty decent from the get go. Why don't don't you track that down starting from issue #1.

As I said last time you floated that - screw you. It's one thing to not like it - that's your prerogative.

You're a complete asshole for disparaging others just for liking it. Dick.

I thought it started off quite decently myself, but getting Buffy to bop that chick just for the "wow" aspect, then going all Fray on us, & the *tired* *endless* Dawn schtick sorta killed it for me.

Oh, and I have the first Angel comic, the art isn't my taste. Sadly.

Yes, Richard there seems to enjoy hating on it. Personally, I just wanted to see if it got back to the rather high calibur I remember from the first fifteen or so issues. Or if peeps think the Fray arc was good.

I haven't read past the first couple issues of the Fray arc yet myself. But it takes a total ass to attack others just for liking something you don't. I may express my confusion over you liking, for example, Spider-Man 3, but I'm not going to jump up on a high horse and attack you for it. Taste is subjective. Anyone who thinks their opinion is factual and irrefutable is a blowhard fuckhead.

I enjoy the use of language, even "bad" language.

Really? Nothing after was as good as what came before?

Crap. I'd hoped for more good stuff. Oh well. I'll look at the newer issues next time I get around to the comics shop fishing for my Paul Gullacy fix...

Whoa - is that a fact, or is it your opinion?

You misunderstand. I haven't read any comics after Time of Your Life, but I feel that arc ruined it so thoroughly that it's going to stay that way, even if someone were to tell me whatever came after was the most brilliant thing in Buffy yet. I can't stand the direction it took, I thought it undermined what came before it, and I wish I could un-read it

Actually, I concur. Though I may check out subsequent stories. But that arc is for sale from my collection. I really hated it. And I loved season 6, so don't think that I hate dark or painful stuff.

The covers of each issue are still very fantastic.
That's worth something I guess.

Issue #26:
