And as an aside, I was a big fan of his run on Astonishing X-Men.
BUFFY should have ended on season 5 when it was originally planned to. I agree the last couple seasons are weak. Part of the reason for this was Whedon was preoccupied with ANGEL and FIRELFY at that point. Plus the budget was drastically cut and it showed.
I couldn't get into DOLLHOUSE. Something about it just didn't grab me.
His run on Astonishing X-Men was amazing. I don't think anyone has done the team as well as he did. Plus it had John Cassaday's art which was a complete win. I'm liking the new BUFFY comic, but think the current arc has been running too long. It's fun, but all over the place and a little too crazy sometimes.
