    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Aug 7, 2019

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #7 brilliantly captures your heart through the direct consequence to Willow giving up half of her soul to save Xander. Both of these character have been through a lot, and for better or for worse we know that these hard times are what will mold them into the pillars of idolization that they will become in the future.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 12, 2019

    Compared to the show, it's moving through big events dramatically quicker (largely due to how long an issue lasts compared to a 42-minute episode of a 22-episode season) and is more directly serialized, but it's the emphasis on character which shows just how alive the series is at its core.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Aug 7, 2019

    Bellaire's excellent writing mixes with Milledge's wonderful guest artwork to create another great issue of a series that has remained entertaining from the start. The storytelling is definitely exciting, but Milledge is the hero of the week as her illustrations contributed to the day being saved. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Aug 7, 2019

    On its own, this issue is a great character study and a nice change in structure. Unfortunately, it also exacerbates one of the biggest problems this series has shown so far. Which is that its so decompressed that it feels like nothing happens issue to issue. Heres hoping the title can pick up the pace overall while still finding time for moments like these.

    GWW - Deron Generally Aug 7, 2019

    David Lopez and Sas Milledge deliver some interesting and well-done art in the issue as well. Both artists compliment each other's styles and the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 12, 2019

    Taking place mostly inside Willow's mind, on the final couple of pages the comic does offer a bit more of the usual back-and-forth between Xander and Willow suggesting that, at least for now, things are getting back to normal (or what passes for normal in Sunnydale, at least). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 22, 2019

    Although a little light on the original storytelling this issue,Buffy the Vampire Slayer #7 nonetheless delivers a well-crafted slice of character-driven introspection, turning two fan-favorite characters on their heads while still remaining true to who they are. That takes skill. Old-school fan or newly-converted, this is oneBuffy reboot worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Clark-McGlenn Aug 6, 2019

    A marked improvement from a couple of months ago. A solid issue that gets back to good pacing, relatable characters, and solid art. Read Full Review

    . It ends with Lopez returning for a strong final scene between Willow and Xander, but it still feels like a story missing most of its middle. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 8, 2019

    Overall, I'm unsure if I can come back into the book. The jump away from Mora's art has been frustrating for the most part and I'm unsure what to do as a reader. Bellaire's narrative is beautiful and she understands the characters but sadly, Lpez's art doesn't. Read Full Review
