Buffy, the bisexual bank-robber, has just spent an entire issue boinking Angel (now revealed as the masked villain who led an armed incursion of American troops into the People's Republic of China to kill depowered Slayers - somehow without causing the PRC to retaliate by wrecking America's economy - and who has caused the deaths of 206 Slayers). This boinkfest is revealed to be the result of the Universe itself decreeing that Buffy and Angel are special snowflakes who are to be the progenitors of a new race of super-beings who will inherit the Earth after a series of cataclysms (which have started) wipe out all life from the current Earth. Somehow the vampire's cold dead seed is going to impregnate Buffy and she will give birth, not only to super-humans, but to hippos, tigers, and Indian Ocean catfish (all of which are shown being threatened by the global catastrophe).

It's such a total mess there is no way I can even begin to convey how stupid it is. Wolves live in Scotland, vampire bats (which eat mosquitoes, somehow, rather than drinking blood) live in Texas, and Willow has friendly conversations with a (somehow alive, although skinless) Warren! Ut's so screwed up that the gang going to Tibet by submarine was only the 793rd stupidest plot development.

That ... is Grant Morrison levels of bizzare, without any signs of the underlying (if somewhat skewed) logic that even Final Crisis had...

You just made my head go 'splodey.

My Buffy will continue to end with S7 of the TV show, I think.

Thanks for the precis. That saves me a lot of time, money and most importantly aggravation.
