...running around with you? Tell me...

So. The preview cover of season 8 #7 is up, and Faith's Galatea impersonation is causing some head-scratching among people who didn't recognise her in the picture. So I went and looked for pictures of Eliza DoolittleDushku in a similar pose, re-coloured them to match, and put them side by side for you to make up your own mind.

So. Good likeness or hopelessly unalike?

Personally, I'd say the drawing's nose is a little too sharp, the neck's too long (but that's fairly standard artistic licence when painting women in that sort of dress), and her torso has clearly been magically enhanced (ditto - and given this is the Buffyverse, possibly canonically true as well). But overall, a pretty decent likeness. 

(Though I still prefer Jo Chen's other Faith cover - see icon.)

(And yes, my repetition of the word 'so' is a deliberate affectation copied from S8 Buffy.)
