    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #9 is a particularly strong episode in Boom! Studios hit-or-miss reboot of the Buffyverse. Its telling, though, and a little troubling, that both of the Buffyverse titles seem to hit their stride when their main characters are absent. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 6, 2019

    By the end of this issue there was a huge twist they threw our way. Definitely one that was teased, but there was no way to prepare for how they would introduce this new character into the story. This development begs so many questions, and that isn't a bad thing either. Especially when we still don't know what is happening on the other side of the Hellmouth. There could easily be some unforeseen consequences to a slayer crossing over into the other world and leaving their post on Earth. All in all, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #9 gives us confidence in what the tie-ins have to offer outside of Buffy and Angel as the main characters. Read Full Review

    Don’t let the sub-par art drag you away from what is a fantastic read and comic series. Hellmouth & Angel are both fantastic, and this is the parent of the Buffyverse. Read Full Review

    The story lacks a smooth flow, but the characters"while not at their most endearing here"are still those lovable Scoobies. Now that Jordie Bellaire, David Lopez, and company have broken them down, it should be fun to see them built back up again (presumably) over the course of the crossover event. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Nov 17, 2019

    "Hellmouth" comes to a grinding halt this issue, which chooses to focus on the morose tales of Giles, Willow, and Xander instead of actually advancing the story. Readers are going to find themselves frustrated on multiple levels, ending with a very strong sense of "Why should I care?" Read Full Review
