Back to Buffy's arc.
We've got a couple left in this one and I'll be glad to get done with this and Zoey's arcs as they've given me nothing but headaches after I started them. Well, I ended up not liking the direction either were headed and that contributed to my writer's block.
The manifestation in panel three is based off of my buddy Howie's ghosts in his comic Tara Normal
. I wanted to have Buffy encounter something she's never seen at this point of the arc and I was trying to come up with a different take on ghosts than what we've seen in ZR so far... so I went with how Howie does it.
