    The whole series has been building to this issue. Excellent writing, fantastic pacing, great art and colors, the best issue of the series. As the penultimate issue of Hellmouth it manages to build up plenty of excitement while also being a brilliant issue in its own right. Well done to the whole team at Boom! Studios. Read Full Review

    To say that the stakes couldn't be higher would be one heck of an understatement after what we got out of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #12. This is that point where you could really say that this is a tie-in worth investing your time in. Getting a new slayer is cool for the fact that Kendra is new altogether, but that was just one piece of many thing which needed to fall into place when it mattered most. Read Full Review

    This issue feels more focused than those that preceded but still doesn't stick the landing on its most dramatic moments. Read Full Review

    Chock-full of unearned character beats, ill-defined art, and vague plot contortions,Buffy #12 shows that maybe the time isn't right after all for a new, rebooted vision of the Slayer and her crew. Disappointing to say the least. Read Full Review
