TV Buffy vs. Comic Buffys

The long-awaited fifth issue of Watcher Junior is here! To facilitate dialogue between the readers and the student writers of our peer-reviewed scholarly journal, I’ve done a blog post introducing each one so that readers can use the comments to give feedback.

“The Many Faces of Buffy” is the most formally inventive article to be published thus far anywhere in the Whedon scholarship, bar none. Featuring copious illustrations analyzed by a professional illustrator, this submission is a must-read for anyone interested in the eighth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or any of the prior comics associated with the series. Lauren Schumacher examines the various Comic Book Buffys in light of Sarah Michelle Gellar’s iconic features—her nose, eyes, hair, and muscle tone. There are also multiple Television Buffys, as Gellar’s own body changes as she ages from 20 to 27, which leads Schumacher to ask whether Gellar herself is an approximation of an Ideal Buffy. Her article presents a close analysis of the work of various Buffy illustrators: Cliff Richards, Georges Jeanty and Jeff Matsuda. The ultimate question these artists grapple with is what the essential meaning of Buffy (and Buffy) is. And that’s something all our readers and writers are interested in. Take a look and let Lauren know what you think!
