Previously, well, Jayne was having a bit of an identity crisis, and it got weirder with the sudden appearance of his brother… and son in tow. Let that sink in… Jayne’s a dad!

Previously on Angel: The schism between Fred and Spike reached a boiling point, despite a heroic gesture on Spike’s part to save Wesley. Despite the arrival of his interdimensional doppelganger in LA, Angel at the end of his rope takes a lucrative offer for a feature film in Romania to get away from it all.

Quick recap: Okay… so we have three Arthurs running about, each one thinking the others are usurpers and that they’re the one true king of Britain. To throw a metaphorical wrench into their plans, Bridgette roped in Robin Hood and his Merry Men to make things uncomfortable for the Arthurs. Oh, and using the play on the word, “merry,” it would appear that the passage of time can be shortened by joining the group.

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: In an alternate universe, much seems familiar, with the starkest difference being that Willow is the Chosen One. It would appear that there are secrets between Willow and Giles that hint that things aren’t the way they’re supposed to be here…

Last time around, the crew was successful in procuring the medical supplies that Simon needed to attempt to save the life of the monk that the Tax Collector shot. Despite Simon and, in a surprising turn of events, Jayne’s best efforts, they were unsuccessful. Requiem really is living up to its name, huh?

Previously on Angel: The gang managed to put Groo to rest and neutralize Lord Lanugo, all just in time for the arrival of some dimensional hoppers. Introducing Man-Bun Spike and Rocker-Cliché Angelus, both looking decidedly evil and we’re not just talking about crimes against good taste here.

Quick recap: Well, the last time around, I said there were two legendary Arthurs vying for the throne. Silly me… Gillen et al. threw in a third version. “Extra” does not seem to begin to describe this book… but then again, I don’t think they’ve ever shied away from over the top.

After a disastrous encounter with the Tax Collector and his goons, the crew is on a time crunch to get the medical supplies Simon needs to save a life. Issue #3 has a few surprises thrown in for good measure, and there are a few character moments that feel like they’re building up to something big.

Set in an alternate universe that was briefly glimpsed in BOOM!’s first foray into Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the 25th Anniversary Special, The Vampire Slayer sees Willow taking on the titular mantle, with Giles as her Watcher, and Buffy and Xander as her Scoobies. While much of the dynamic seems familiar, this is definitely a different side of Willow and Buffy’s relationship.

Previously on Angel: Well, the identity of the sorrow demon has been cleared up, and it’s none other than the Groosalugg. On the other hand, there’s also a literal poop demon (a.k.a. Lord Lanugo) running about. Good thing is that Angel’s back to normal. Now, time for a plan.
