Behind the scenes

  • James Marsters reportedly disliked the story artwork, as he said when discussing his second Buffy comic, Into the Light: "[...]they had wanted to use an artist that was drawing the characters really ugly. Like, the whole world was just viciously ugly. And I didn't have the presence of mind to say, "Whoa, whoa – don't go there." What I wish I could have said was, "This is a romance." It's a twisted romance, yes, but the way a romance works is that every guy reading this book has to want the female lead – want to have sex with her – and he wants to be the male lead. And every woman, conversely, has to be the woman and want the guy. [...] I'm still very proud of it – but I had to explain to wonderful Juliet Landau why I was in the middle of something that made her look so much less beautiful than she is in real life. That was hard."[1]
