Not really willing to spend £300 or more on that. :roll:


Wish I'd bought more copies of Once More With Footnotes, I just ordered a copy when it came out and I think it cost about $30 including postage never thought it was going to be difficult to get. :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Hindsight would be awesome. You could see where you've been at the same time as you're going somewhere else.

Bless him!!

To be honest, I'm not a fan of graphic novels, though I've only ever read 1 - Buffy ( :oops: :oops: ), it seemed all over the place, but perhaps this will be different.

I read 2 or 3 of the magazines, and found the narrative to be all over the place - instead of boxes going l/r across the page, it seemed to be dotted all over.

OK well the new seeason 8 started a few years ago and is nearing the end its over 40 issue run in a couple of months. Its starts off set about a year and a half after the end of season 7.

There are also the some new Anggel comics that came out just after and are still going, that show what happenned when Wolfram and Hart brought Hell to LA.

Well worth reading - each arc are collected in graphic novels.

So you NEW neighbour already knows you love Terry Prachett to the point he/she GIVES you free Terry Prachett books that he/she KNOWS you don't have............ thats some welcome wagon you put out there Bouncy! Or are you the kind of "welcoming" neighbour that lands on the doorstep as the movers are walking out and never leaves. :D :D :D
