    Giles feels pushed aside by the arrival of Wesley Wyndam-Pryce who seems to have the Council's ear (although Giles imparts some wisdom, with a touch of foreboding, about Slayers to the young Watcher). As for Buffy, she seems to work well with both Kendra and Faith, although she too is feeling inadequate to lead a Slayer trio and with her guilt over recent events. Read Full Review

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #22 could easily be called Buffy and the Multiverse of Madness. We have known for a year or so that the OG Buffy is out there. Everything is just taking a really long time to smash together. This has been the biggest issue with taking episodic TV and trying to translate it to a comic. A show that lasts one hour essentially takes five or six comics. It is painfully slow. I like where we are going here though. I am going to hang on. Read Full Review
