    Willow has been a great series. The art has been very well drawn, the colors are vibrant, and I love the writer's patience in his reveals. Heck, it took us four issues for the antagonist to be revealed! Read Full Review

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow #4 works really well. It moves the plot along. It keeps us guessing and most importantly, it makes us want to buy the next issue. I love a good cliffhanging ending. It is a shame this is only a mini-series because I feel like Tamaki has more to say about this world. Read Full Review

    The penultimate issue of Willow, it's been an excellent way to spend time with the character and learn a little more about what makes her tick. With only one issue left before her return to the main Buffy comic (ignoring the fact that due to the way comics are published she's technically already returned) it'll be interesting to see how the final issue, and the series as a whole, have changed the character. Readers will desperately be awaiting the final issue in this exciting mini-series. Read Full Review

    This issue feels like a chapter we could skip and head straight to the story's end. It isn't bad, but it may leave readers feeling a little unfulfilled by the end. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Oct 15, 2020

    This issue was terrible. The only good thing it had going for it was the lettering which was solid but to be quite frank, I've seen better from this series. Tamaki regresses her character and phones in a filler issue where nothing really happens yet it somehow manages to make Willow look like a helpless, passive character instead of the one that was ready to take on a town of witches last issue. The issue also ends with her in the same position as she was at the end of last issue so it's a bit of a pointless book to read. Even Bustos' art which I usually praise felt weaker than usual here. This really does just feel like a hastily-made filler issue created because the story couldn't fill out the number of issues. Not worth reading. Read Full Review
