    An excellent issue in a series which progressively gets better, the storylines getting into murkier grey area's, this issue won't disappoint fans. Bellaire and Lambert manage to capture the magic of the TV series while putting their own unique stamp on it, and bringing it up to date for modern audiences. It's difficult to know where this storyline will go, but it'll be a pleasure finding out. Genolet's art brings Buffy's world to life brilliantly, and he makes an excellent fit for the series.

    Overall, I was happy to say that Buffy the Vampire Slayer #21 was one of those rare issues from this series which genuinely left me wanting to see more. Though that is only if the plot continues to play to the strengths of untold stories, and we maintain the visual appeal we have received from this particular art team. Read Full Review

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #21 is pretty good. What a wrinkle. I did not see that coming. I mean, I should have. We all should have. We know how it works. If a Slayer dies for just a second, the next one is activated. It happened on the show. It happened twice in this run. Duh. Who knew Anya was involved? I mean. Pretty awesome. Can't wait for more.

    There's a strong concept here, but the execution isn't doing it any justice. Read Full Review
