    Just when you thought you might have a handle on the direction of the story, the creative team layers in some new twists and questions. Buffy the Vampire Slayer #18 marks a huge turning point for the Scooby Gang. Read Full Review

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #18 is a lot of fun. This is a nice change of pace after all of the crazy that has been happening. The fact that there is no action is actually OK. The tension is real. The stakes are high (there are no actual stakes in this issue though) and we are all worried about what is coming next. While it was not much of a surprise, that last panel is pretty great.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Oct 6, 2020

    A much slower, character focused issue, which gives readers a nice breather before the upcoming confrontation. Willows return is a clever way to examine the characters different relationships and she's been sorely missed from the series. The next issue promises to be an exciting one, with this issue being all about the build-up for the next one. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 7, 2020

    What came of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #18 was a hard sell this month. There were things we needed to see from this story, and sadly that was not delivered. Not in the way that it should or could have been. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, Ramon Bachs' artwork is a distraction here. Bachs tries to give these high school students a youthful look, as you'd expect, with character manga-inspired character models, but his faces and bodies are inconsistent from page to page, resulting is something that looks like Dan Mora's work minus discipline.

    I thought this issue was fine. Willow just sort of appeared out of nowhere, and her miniseries isn't even over yet, but that's fine. The character work was fine. I don't know what the plan is regarding Buffy and Robin. There's a hint that they are going to have sex, but I don't think that'll hit nearly as hard as the show. The themes the show used that experience to explore really makes season 2 great, but if we just kind of throw that potential away for the comic, I'm not sure how I feel about that. I don't want a retread, but I also definitely don't want a wasted opportunity. As for Xander, I see they've definitely adopted the problematic nature of the character. His big bad scheme is seemingly just an amalgamation of some of his worst mo more
