    As with every other Buffy book,Willow starts off on the right foot. The Buffy books add another stellar series. Read Full Review

    Overall, its a worthy first issue with a lot of room to grow, and a definite pull for Willow fans. Parker captures her character so perfectly, that you cant help imagining Alyson Hannigans voice ringing through your ears when reading through the dialogue. Brian Chings art compliments Parkers writing well, but theres no likeness to Hannigan in the slightest. Of course, thats not to say his take on Willow isnt good. I like the fact that he turns her into a more believable Heroine in appearance. Shes very strong and determined, and it shows in both script and artwork. Read Full Review

    At this point it's obvious the editors of Season 9 have settled on a house style for these books to maintain a certain level of artistic continuity, it's really too bad the style they chose isn't strong at all. The colours are too vibrant and jarring, the expressions either completely lacking or strange looking; this and the other books are just not something I actually enjoy visually. The action sequences are cramped and the characters are cartoonish in a way that isnt redeeming or really playing off the recognized Alice in Wonderland motifs to any great effect. Overall, I just dislike the art of all these books, even if the story itself is quite good. If the exterior work, the two incredible covers this book has by David Mack and Megan Lara, could ever match the inside, these books would be so much stronger. Read Full Review

    The premise is strong and Jeff's natural wit plays well to Willow, but the story lacks real depth. Brian Ching's art feels more like a hindrance to the mystical elements Parker is writing. And while the book pops with vibrancy, the excellent coloring gets a little lost in Ching's undefined pencils. It's a shaky start, but one I'm willing to take another shot at. If only for more Willow. Read Full Review

    However, the pretty art and snappy jokes in "Willow Wonderland" #1 are overshadowed by the lack of interesting action or characterization, making for a weak debut. Read Full Review
