    Buffy The Last Vampire Slayer bucks the trends of most nostalgic stories by taking what is known and building off it to reinvent the franchise and present a vision of what could have been or still could be. In just two issues this team has created a world that would be very interesting to see explored well beyond the four-issue confines of this mini-series, as there are so many avenues and characters and aspects yet to be seen.

    This is the story I never knew I wanted. This is a great example of why professional fanfiction is fantastic. Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer shows what happens when invested creatives get a chance to revisit and reinvent properties they admire in some capacity and get to expand the world in new ways. This is not the Buffy we know, but it is a Buffy that is still familiar and one we want to get to know, and I'm already counting the days till issue #3. Read Full Review

    Strong issue but is already proving that it maybe could’ve been a 5-6 issue run to let some of the story breathe. Some weird jumps where I had to figure out if I missed a page or not, but overall pretty solid and fun.

    Not sure why this one is getting a lot of criticism, mostly because I refuse to read comic book reviews. But I liked it. It's a bit overstuffed, which leads to some poor pacing, but I like how the characters act and interact, and the art is nice.
