Fan favorite character Wesley Wyndam-Pryce makes his first appearance in this stand-alone issue that will change everything you know about the Watchers! After the devastating effects of Hellmouth, the Watcher's Council convenes to make sure it never happens again. But when recent Watcher initiate Wesley Wyndam-Pryce stumbles across a dark secret, he learns of a conspiracy decades in the making - one that binds Robin, Giles and the Slayer Before together, and shows just how far the Watchers will go to protect the earth.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Sep 1, 2020

    The kind of issue which is important for furthering the mythology of the series, will delight fans with the introduction of certain characters, and is an all round blast. Filled with the trademark humour of the series it's an incredible issue and has so many implications for the rest of the series. The art from Andrs Genolet & Ral Angulo is excellent and amongst the best team we've had so far in the Buffyverse. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 2, 2020

    Now I don't know if this stand-alone entirely changes everything we knew about the Watchers, but it certain changed a lot that we once knew about Wesley Wyndam-Pryce. Buffy the Vampire Slayer #17 was a solid break from the madness and drama to explore an area of the Buffyverse which was usually neglected in stories past. Read Full Review

    Okay, this is a welcome shot in the arm for this reboot. My man, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, the HEADBOY himself, is finally canon. And if that weren't enough, it turns out that maybe Faith, my favorite anti-social slayer, is also out there somewhere? I'm in! And they're bringing in Ripper stuff now. Ethan Rayne is, for some reason, haunting poor Wesley and complaining about Giles. I'm very excited about all of these things, I can't help it.
