    Spike's got some serious bedroom eyes in that image.

      I've got Volume 1 on pre-order. Do you know who's done the cover art? Does Buffy have blue eyes on the first volume and brown on the second or am I seeing things? It is a great drawing of Spike

        I've got both of them on order - I might even open Vol 2. On second thought, why bother [insert "drool" emoji - except I'm not because it looks like vomiting]?

          Priceless, I think the colour of Buffy's eyes does vary between the two covers, although it's harder to tell in reproductions. But I think her eyes as more green in the first, whilst in the second they look more like the colour of a forest pool. In a good way!

          As for Spike - well, we saw PoetWlliam, Whirlwind Spike (Boxer Slayer scene), Punk Spike, then Spike in his various Sunnyhell incarnations. What about a name for this cover? I hesitate to say GigoloSpike - OK, I don't hesitate - but any offers?

          PS TriBel, that's a great signature. Yeah, I've ordered it purely for the cover. I'm trying to work out where I can strategically place it at home when it arrives, so it's discreetly on display but not in yer face deal. You can tell I think too much about these things.

          Also, re image of Spike - I know you'll order me to get my mind out of the gutter (or maybe not, who knows??), but it really looks as though he ain't wearing no troosers.

            Yes - it is. I'm keeping the signature and the avatar, and getting rid of the kids.

            Stoney didn't either - that's what she thought.

            That's what I thought.

                Lol, think that's wishful thinking, because I definitely see a belt. Sorry

                  OK, why has it taken me so long to realise the villain sports a purple Mohican?
                  Also, I'm embarrassed to take so long to come up with a very lame moniker for the Spike on this cover, but, given the wide lapels, the power dressing, the colours...
                  How about...drum roll, ladies and gentlemen...I present:

                  Night Fever Spike!

                  Ta dah!!

                  Told you it was rubbish.

                      Bless you, Pricey. I struggle to come up with snappy names. My husband conjures them up, I can't manage. But for obvious reasons I'm not asking him about this!

                        Okay - this isn't (alternatively, it is) helping with my reading of the Giles comic (and I'm back on hybridity/timelines here). I think both covers are strange - and I don't necessarily connect them with S10 as it was published. Why does Willow remind me of Vikki the vampire? Why is there a purple mohican here and Roux has a white one on her hood? Why are Buffy's eyes slightly different colours? Why does Buffy on Vol.2 remind me of the Buffy in Anne? Why does Angel look old enough to be her dad? Why is Baldwin (in Giles) wearing a red hooded duster and Spike his red shirt here? Why do their costumes seem to be evoking different eras? Also - "power dressing" when I'm still dubious about the power walk on the cover of S12? I think Giles is still to do with power (see S7) - who has it, where it originates and how groups who have it hold on to it. Why are both covers slanted with a central figure that suggests / - the virgule - the marker that separates binary oppositions? Why is the written word (Vampyr) fragmenting? Why does Vol 2 appear to dissolve into "white" flesh/skin, when Giles is associated with black flesh/skin?

                        Just asking for a friend.

                          Of course! I thought it didn't particularly look like Willow. It's the tights.

                            Okay...that doesn't take my idea of "asking" (for a friend) far enough because it just confirms what I already knew (it's the tights) . Why the similarity? Do things seem a bit "off" to you? (Please expend on any answer that begins with "yes") . It might please you to know I'm going out now!

                              The only thing I can think is that Spike constantly wears a costume. He projects an image all the time and that image doesn't change outwardly. He just changes in his essentials. He thought in S10 that Angel still wielded emotional power over Buffy and that she would go back to him, regardless of what she felt for Spike. But that turned out not to be true. So is this cover saying that Spike thinks he has the power but doesn't?
                              Also, I did wonder why Willow looked like Vikki. Is that a hint she will turn dark, or that she is reverting to her geeky roots? Could it mean going back in time, or forwards?
                              About the other characters, I know nothing. But I'd be interested to see what others think.
                              You know what I am. You've always known. You come to me all the same.
