    Things are really heating up in Boom!s Buffyverse. It feels like no-one is safe, and it's an incredibly exciting time to be a Buffy fan. The art is amongst the best of the series. No slayer fan will want to miss this issue, or indeed incredible series. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 5, 2020

    All in all, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #16 was well-done for the bold move they made to already set things in motion with this supposed big bad. This is one that gets you asking some big questions, because how in the world is Xander still alive? Does this have something to do with the Hellmouth still? Only time will tell! Read Full Review

    The ideas here are exciting, and Bachs' artwork is solid in other places, but it's frustrating to see such a crucial scene flubbed this way. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure how I feel about giving Xander more of an Angelus role, like this comic seems to be doing, what with Xander potentially killing Ms. Calendar and Buffy revealing she may have feelings for him. But I guess we'll see. We're never going to get that foundational Angel/Buffy relationship (which may be a mistake, I'm undecided), so this may be the best way to remix those elements into the narrative. As for this issue itself, the pacing seemed a bit too tight. There wasn't enough breathing room to really leave an impact. The art is always teetering on the edge of good and mediocre in this issue as well.
