    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Dec 4, 2019

    This is another solid issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Its also yet another issue made stronger by the absence of its lead character, which has been a constant for both this series and its sister series, Angel since the Hellmouth crossover (which this issue is nominally part of) began. Heres hoping that Buffys eventual return doesnt mark the end of the high quality of the series. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 4, 2019

    I don't think I could ever love this book more for what this creative team is currently doing with the series. This is called Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but no one ever said the rest of the characters in Buffy's orbit couldn't stand out in this capacity. Familiar characters matter, new characters get more depth, and they are all offered new situations they never would have faced in the show. This is how you do a tie-in for a crossover event.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Dec 4, 2019

    Another good issue in a consistently strong run, focusing on characters that have so far been a little neglected it is sure to be a fan pleaser. Things look to be coming to a head in the next issue which promises to be good. As with all issues in the rebooted Buffyverse, highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Overall, Bellaire delivers the strongest narrative since the start of the Hellmouth crossover event, as she uses Buffy's absence to her strength. Read Full Review

    What stands out most in this issue is how insufferable Giles is, a far cry from his composed, paternal television counterpart. It's another example of the series jumping into the deep end. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 10, 2019

    Buffy continues to be lost without its title character, choosing instead to focus on tertiary characters to flesh out any variety of subplots. Maybe these issues will look better in hindsight once "Hellmouth" is complete, but for now, they're treading water and in search of deeper meaning... or relevance. Read Full Review
