Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer:  Buffy and Co. took a risky gamble and like all well-laid plans, things go sideways pretty quickly. With no other plan to resort to, the group makes a hasty retreat, but is it already too late for that?

The rundown: This is an exploration of a very specific time in the life of an oft-sidelined character. Simon Tam takes center stage here, and the good doctor is on a mission to save his Mei-Mei from the clutches of the Alliance.

Quick recap: While the gang was concerned with surviving being cast into the story, Arthur came face to face with possibly his most hated foe yet: himself. Yeah, things got really wacky…

The lowdown: This is a direct sequel to Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, loosely inspired by the events of the Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3 video games, with the addition of characters from later games that were retconned into the story with later video game installations.  

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, things were tensing up on both sides of the Slayer schism, with each side gearing up to fight a common enemy (Silas), but are they prepared to work together towards a shared goal? After a good, long while of doubting her place in the world (or multiverse!), Buffy had an epiphany about how to possibly fight a battle that’s stacked against them.  

Quick recap: With Merlin’s plan having come to fruition and Arthur back in full power, all of Britain has been cast into the Otherworld. All seems pretty grim at the moment.  

After focusing on the crew on the Serenity in the last few issues, Issue #32 takes us to the other side, quite literally. This is an issue that’s focused on the crew members that were on the other ship, namely Inara, Lank, and Stev. A special guest star does appear, too, which is both a boon to the story and a major continuity breaker of sorts.

Quick recap: Having met up with River and an unusual young girl (Shakti), Emma races against time to save her mother and the rest of the Serenity crew. And perhaps screw around with Blue Sun some, too…

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Faith and Wesley seemed to be wrapped up in some major plans that Major Wilkins and Giles’ Mom have cooking up for the future. Meanwhile, the Scoobies are running out of time and space as the consequences of their interdimensional jaunt seem to be catching up on them.

Quick recap: On Earth That Was, after a tense showdown between the Serenity crew and the plunderers, an unlikely alliance was formed between the crew and the Earthers. The question remains: Is this an actual peace treaty or just a temporary truce while they stand against a common enemy?
