You can disguise your face, but not your height

Back when the first issue of the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer series came out, I complained that Jo Chen's cover made Buffy look six feet tall.

Now, I see the cunning plan. The cover for issue 5 shows us that it wasn't Buffy on that first cover at all, but one of her doubles.

Sneaky stuff (and a damn fine cover painting for issue 5, too).

A full review of Buffy issues 1-4 will follow when my fingers are less like bananas.

Hm...I never took any issue with the cover, but that is a pretty clever interpretation (and if that is indeed the intent, a damn clever idea all around).
