    Georges Jeanty's pencils, meanwhile, are fairly variable in quality. Jeanty's close-up shots look good, offering clean, recognizable takes on the familiar characters without resorting to blatant photo-referencing. On the other hand, there are too many medium to wide-range shots that lose detail and feature characters that are stark almost to the point of abstraction. Jeanty's work needs a more unified, consistent feel. Read Full Review

    Yep, it's poor pitiful Buffy again this issue, which is not a path I want to revisit particularly. I can only hope these echoes of the uneven Season Six won't continue for long. We already went through that in the wildly spinning highs and diverse reveals of Season Eight. I'm hoping for more of a Season Five or Season Seven vibe at this point: one featuring a foe geared to foil Buffy's particular gifts, until she figures out to foil theirs. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 15, 2011

    Writer Andrew Chambliss does a fair job in picking up for Whedon but the dialogue and character reactions simply aren't as crisp this time around. It's still worth reading, but not quite as good as I was hoping. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Art was slightly better in this issue. Writing was a little more on point. It seems to be starting to take shape.
