    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jul 3, 2019

    As this issue plays with the themes of friendship and sacrifice, it also hints at upcoming drama as Robin Wood shows potentially nefarious ulterior motives. This is another solid issue of raising stakes and adding complications in a compelling new direction for the Buffy franchise; itll be interesting to see how it all pays off, if at all.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jul 4, 2019

    With all of that said, Buffy The Vampire Slayer #6 is a solid issue with enough heart and character progression to build out the world further. I am truly in love with these characters, their relationships, and I'm ready for more. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 3, 2019

    Credit where it is due that this creative team is willing to take Buffy and company to new places as well. Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6 proved that even at this stage these kids are willing to go above and beyond to save the lives of those closest to them. This issue was overall adventurous, engaging, and clever for the twists thrown in here and there. Read Full Review

    It's one piece and another great issue of Buffy that captures the spirit of old Buffy while still feeling fresh, new, and different. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jul 23, 2019

    Bellaire is building something special here and we're seeing the seeds of further elements planted in this issue. I am eager to see how this will play out and lead up to the first crossover between this series and Angel later this year with Hellmouth. This comic has reinvigorated my love for this franchise.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 16, 2019

    Other points of interest in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6 are Xander's knowledge of the Hellmouth (and Drusilla‘s interest in it), more of Jenny Calendar (who makes a persuasive argument for Giles to take it easier on Buffy), and a late reveal about Robin (who it appears is more than he seems). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jul 9, 2019

    It's amazing how much the artwork can affect the perception of a book. While David Lopez's art is enjoyable on its own, it is a significant downgrade from Dan Mora's initial 4 issues. It isn't fair, but that doesn't make it any less true. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jul 6, 2019

    If the characters don't look good and the dialogue too difficult to read, this book should not be purchased or read. I'm walking away from this title because of the subpar visuals. This is a shame because the story has become interesting; I'm still not thrilled with some of the changes from the television series, but with this issue I got on board with the majority of them. This is the first Buffy book I've dropped in twelve years. In just two issues Angel is a much stronger looking series and I'll continue with that. When Buffy looks better, I hope to come back. Looking at her like this mars every outing that's come before. Read Full Review
