    Gorgeous artwork from Roig paired with Gillys writing makes for one powerhouse team. Staying true to the original cannon, Gilly brings us an alternate universe with nods to fan favorite characters and introducing us to new ones to love. This new mini-series written by Casey Gilly is a continuation from her story line in Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer (2022) and Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer Special, which takes place 5 years since the events in issue #4 of Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer. Casey seems to be gearing up to finally give our beloved Buffy an ending to her story and bringing us full circle with our new heroine, Thess. I cant wait to see whats up next. Read Full Review

    It's not quite business as usual as ‘Buffy The Last Vampire Slayer' returns and shows off what the formerly post-apocalyptic world of an older Buffy has become. A dark and fun style can be felt in the first issue that does a lot to build out this world and return it to some semblance of what came before. Read Full Review

    The first issue of the series takes a little bit of a stumble, especially for newer readers who may be reading about this world for the first time. But the story and art have a lot of promise that can lead one to check out the next issue to see what happens. Read Full Review

    Buffy: The Last Vampire Slayer #1 is a solid start to this sequel series. This was a very character focused beginning as we see where Buffy and new Slayer Thessaly Maclay Rosenberg are at after a time jump. That works if you have read the first series. If you haven't read the 2021 Buffy: The Last Vampire Slayer then I recommend going back to read that before starting this sequel. Read Full Review

    There are some interesting pieces here, but I don't think this is the comic to pull me back into reading Buffy on a regular basis. Read Full Review
