    The secrets of the Buffyverse are beginning to open, a chance to see some classic TV Buffy in action, and filled with fantastic Easter Eggs from start to finish, there's plenty here for Buffy fans. An oversized anniversary issue, the gag in the final panel is worth the price of admission alone. It's clear that the overarching mysteries of the season are just around the corner. Pinti is one of the better artists so far on the series, and the art is matching up to the quality of the storytelling. With the series now in full swing it's an exciting time to be a Buffy fan.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #25 made me, as the kids say, have some feels. I think it is well drawn and well paced. Honestly, I am genuinely unsure of what to expect next month and honestly, that is a very good thing. We want to be surprised by our comics. If we always knew exactly what would happen from month to month, there wouldn't be a point would there? Read Full Review

    Though the art certainly makes Buffy a more enjoyable experience, on the whole the story is in desperate need of new life. There has been something lacking since the much-to-early crossover event, "Hellmouth," and it's as if we have been reading the same arc that has almost exceeded ten issues. Read Full Review

    For the big worlds' colliding event, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #25 is actually a bit dull as the new characters avoid their original counterparts and avoid any possible negative reaction to running into themselves. Read Full Review

    The story does channel some of the tone fans of Buffy love, with the Lurkers being appropriately creepy and the beats about shrimp tacos bringing the humor. But it also suffers from all of the usual problems this series struggles with"a lack of grounding and mediocre visual storytelling"making it hard not to feel like this forgettable issue could have been something more.
