Hundreds of years in the future, Manhattan has become a deadly slum, run by mutant crime-lords and disinterested cops. Stuck in the middle is a young girl who thought she had no future, but learns she has a great destiny. In a world so poisoned that it doesn't notice the monsters on its streets, how can a street kid like Fray unite a fallen city against a demonic plot to consume mankind? Joss Whedon, the celebrated creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, brings his vision to the future in this unique tale. As inventive in the comics medium as in that of television or film, Whedon spins a complex tale of a skilled thief coming of age without the help of friends or family, guided only by a demonic Watcher.

Why it took me so long to read this book, I do not know. Written by Whedon, Fray tells the story of a future slayer. Set 200 years in the future, in a time when magic no longer exists and the world is quite different. Different setting, different characters, same mission -- slay.

I wasn't sure how open I would be to the idea of another slayer, because Buffy (and all the scoobies) have such a special place in my heart, that it's hard to let anything else close to that. Yet Whedon does it again, all the way down to his forward. He brings that heart. Each character adding color to the story (Loo, I'm looking at you), his infamously witty dialogue, a kick ass leading lady and, I mean...that hair! What I wouldn't do to be able to pull of multi-colored hair like that, scythe at my side. #jossisboss

This is basically Buffy-200-years-in-the-future. Simple concept but with the trademark Joss action (with a kick-@#$ lady character, of course) and banter-y dialogue. Not life-changing or anything, but an enjoyable read.
