Spike's unorthodox coven is revealed, along with their plans to continue Willow's work and save humanity, but they're struggling with spells, and the brutality of the vampires against witches had deep ramifications. But Buffy is having visions of the past that brings up conflict with Spike, as well as guilt. Can they find a way to make the spells work, find out what part Thessaly plays in all of this, as well as deal with a threat more deadly than perpetual darkness?

    This is a weird comic. I feel like I say that a lot when it comes to these Boom Buffyverse comics. They are truly trying to do something and the results are very mixed. This is a pretty good issue, though. I think the characterization is on point, more or less. There's just a disconnect somewhere in here, where I stop enjoying what I'm reading because the stakes are removed by the scenario in which these characters are being written, and those stakes are not being replaced. It's hard to explain, but if I wasn't the only person on Earth reading this, the other hypothetical readers would get it.
