Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus #1

The smash TV hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer led to nearly a decade of comics at Dark Horse-including multiple specials, one-shots, and guest miniseries. This omnibus series is the ultimate compilation of the Buffy comics Dark Horse has published, and runs along the TV series' timeline.

This first volume begins at the beginning - The Origin, a faithful adaptation of creator Joss Whedon's original screenplay for the film that started it all. The newly-chosen slayer's road to Sunnydale continues in Viva Las Buffy and Slayer, Interrupted. Next, high school, the Scoobies and an English librarian lead the way into Season One continuity. Plus, The Goon creator Eric Powell provides pencils to "All's Fair," featuring Spike and Drusilla at the 1933 World's Fair. Dark Horse Comics 296 pages.

Wallpapers and Websites edition 2

Seamus the Leprechaun here, after a little posting hiatus what better way to return than with my very popular and much talked about Wallpapers and Websites post.

Well popular in the Leprechaun community that is, for it appears the human world has yet to see the importance of such a very simple but surprisingly effective idea. And if you'd like to sign the "I think this is a great post" comment box provided, a brown envelope with a surprisingly large incentive is waiting in the hallway.

Thank you!

Guitar Hero II Review (xbox 360)

Amid intitial discontent with isolated glitchy whammy bars (quickly resolved by Red Octane), and continued criticism of the hefty price for downloadable song packs, the game went down a storm with reviewers. Scoring a staggering 93% from 31 reviews on

Reviews Summary
More or less the perfect video game
Squeezing every last penny out of 360 gamers, but the most fun you can have by playing a videogame.
Buy this game, the fantasy experience is pure rock and roll excess. Your personal stairway to heaven awaits.
An improvement (if a slight one) over the five-star PS2 original
Far and away the definitive version of the game and certainly worth the extra ten bucks
A great rock-and-roll art style that works extremely well
A few misgivings about some of the track choices, but I enjoyed absolutely everything about Guitar Hero II.
