A few days ago I made this post about Dark Horse Comics' cancellation of the Buffy Tarot Deck. An online comic blog, Lying In The Gutters had this to say regarding the news.
The Buffy Tarot card set from Dark Horse is cancelled. No reasons are given, but I hear talk it was due to conflicts with the representatives of certain actors/actresses who appear on the cards. Apparently make believe occult nonsense is fine, but an actual item that might be used in the black arts is not.
But really. You think someone would have predicted this. Somehow.
Also, I'm betting that most of it lies on the shoulders of Sarah Michelle Gellar. Any artist who makes a depiction of her in comics or any other published medium must go through a rigorous acceptance process so that her image remains consistent-and yet somehow she still doesn't always look like herself in comic book or artist-rendered form.
