A Brief And Unconnected Note On The "Buffy" Comics

The artwork by Georges Jeanty is just plain terrible. Murky, ugly, craggy faces mixed with bad framing and coloring. The character design is often inconsistent within individual issues, making it difficult to recognize the new characters. What's worse, Buffy et al. need to look like the actual people who portrayed them for seven years on the air. These aren't pencil characters whose looks can be altered slightly by an artist's individual whim; the characters are identical to the actors who brought them to life, and as such must resemble them closely enough that they don't appear to be some poor imitation. I'm pretty sure Andrew appeared in the first issue, but I'm still not sure. Jo Chen's covers are great, but Jeanty's work is just bad.
