    Christos Gage has packed enough action and fun in this issue to make the reader want more and Megan Levens art is the perfect complement to a highly satisfactory issue. I know that it's common for the art in these types of issues has to have the right amount of horror with a comedic feel and this one hit the nail right on the head. Read Full Review

    Everything has changed by the end of this issue, but not the quality. Just when my heart can't take any more, the story moves in a different, surprising direction. You cannot beat the drama of this book. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #25 was a great emphasis of what they all still risk every day they are out there fighting the supernatural which aim to destroy their world. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 28, 2016

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #25 offers a tearful farewell to both Dawn and Xander who stay behind to close the portal. Buffy's acceptance of the fact also looks to cause another rift between her and Blondie Bear. That, plus the threat posed by D'Hoffryn means things aren't getting any easier for the Slayer any time soon. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 28, 2016

    As for those final pages, it's a twist worthy of the original television show itself. Characters who have been primarily in the background or too easily trusted finally step into center stage as a slip of the tongue unleashes all sorts of power into absolutely the wrong hands. It's a great setup, the perfect "gotcha!" moment to make readers sit straight up and realize that Gage has quietly been faking us out for a while now. Am I looking forward to the final storyline to kick off? Yes. Should you be too? Definitely. Gage and Isaacs' run on this title has always been good, but -- thanks to this issue -- it promises to be epic. Read Full Review

    The story ends in some interesting plot advancement, but at the cost of a well told narrative. Read Full Review

    The first time this comic has pulled off the sort of should-have-seen-it-coming changes-everything kind of plot twist that the best seasons of the TV show achieved. My only quibble is that the ultimate villain's plan seems overly convoluted and is triggered more by happenstance than insidious plotting. There was nothing specifically set up to guarantee that Buffy would utter the right words; it might have never happened. And why not just get someone else to say them?
