    This issue aired all the dirty laundry that everyone has been thinking since Angel came to town. One or two issues back"when he arrived"Buffy, Spike, and Angel tried to talk it out before fighting a super demon that is the progenitor of them all"but it didn't really work. They fought together and that saved things more than anything else. The doubts are still there; they're human after all"or mostly human"people with souls. But there's bigger things to worry about right now than petty love. Like the fate of the world. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 22, 2015

    Definitely one of the more favorable issues of Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 so far because this is the main cast in their element. Suited up, armed with their weapon of choice, and doing what they do best. For example, it wasn't too shocking though equally as exciting when seeing what Andrew brings to the table with his tech. With as many characters that are involved in this story, it as always is impressive when there is a solid use of space to make sure everyone looks relevant. To see that is just as important as their conversations with one another and the art team nailed it to the very end. Beyond this you have to like the way Archaeus is captured as the villain because it's what he tends to have up his sleeve that is most dangerous compared to taking on the heroes upfront.

    This is a fantastic improvement from the last issue. I look forward to seeing where they steer this series. It hasn't quite reached its full potential yet, but it has the capability to be great. Read Full Review

    Buffy Season 10 #17 is just as stuck in the past and caught up in the same Angel-Buffy-Spike triangle as #16 was, but there are more demon fights " so I guess that's an improvement? Read Full Review
