    Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues to be one of my favorite ongoing series and this prelude to a larger universe has me delighted. Not only is this issue fantastic, but it does its job by stirring up excitement for the future of this story. OUR SCORE: Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 12, 2019

    Buffy #8 sets the stage and then ups the stakes in major ways this issue. If you've been on the fence about whether or not you want to check Jordie Bellaire's bold reimagining ofBuffy out, this is the issue to check out. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 4, 2019

    The Buffy the Vampire Slayer prelude for Hellmouth was a great set-up for how and why this event is called what it is. No time was wasted at all in bringing everything full circle between the mysterious circumstance of Joyce Summers' new museum exhibit, and the dreams both Buffy and Xander have had warning them of what might possibly come.

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Sep 4, 2019

    Boom! Studios reboot of the Buffyverse has been an ambitious project from the start. This issue is a promising (if slight) beginning for their first crossover. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 12, 2019

    Jenny quickly giving up the dagger may help save some initial bloodshed but likely won't help her relationship with the Watcher (or the rest of the world which she may have doomed). And what's up with Dru stabbing Spike? What does that mean for him, and for Sunnydale? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Sep 9, 2019

    A well-lain script and excellent colors continue through this event prelude, but some of the artwork just doesn't quite fit. Read Full Review

    Fans will have to wait and see if that helps focus the series and improve its pacing issues, or imbalances the series even further. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Sep 9, 2019

    Overall, Bellaire's story and Angulo's colors are great but Lpez's art pulls me out of it. It's been a common complaint this arc, but the strength of the story keeps pulling me back, not to mention that Hill'sAngelseries is substantially different than Bellaire'sBuffyseries, so seeing them come together is something that I have been waiting for since it was announced.
