    Bloody Disgusting - Lonnie Nadler May 22, 2014

    The artwork remains a consistent bonus throughout the issue, as Isaacs brings Gage and Brendons narrative to visual signification with the help of Jacksons palette of strong colours. There are many things to love and praise about the interior art of Issue #3. Its emotive, dynamic, and thoroughly engaging, from the busy action panels to the quiet introspective moments. The spot-on character design for Dracula, the action at the ruins of the Sutro Baths, as well as Buffy and Willows kidnapping quest through the streets of San Francisco, are just a few personal highlights. Isaacs and Jacksons individual contributions and styles of art complement each others impressive work, and they along with Brendon seem to be a perfect match for Gages Buffy Season 10.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 28, 2014

    Co-written by Nicholas Brendon the dialogue feels as sharp as ever, and not just with Xander as Buffy and Willow share the kind of bestie moment we haven't seen between them in quite some time. Must-Read. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 21, 2014

    This issue of Buffy The Vampire Slayer not only reminds us of the entertainment value that it carries, but it also reminds us that things can easily take a turn for the worst when you let your guard down. We had our comedic interactions between Dawn, Xander and Dracula, but then we also had something more genuine from Buffy and Willow as they tracked down one of those new vampires as a study specimen. Such that you can only get from Buffy and there's no questioning what more you can get out of it as a fan and reader. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin May 20, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #3 is easily the best issue of the series so far and though there's still room for improvement it's starting to show strong promise. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Kory Cerjak May 21, 2014

    There was a lot of good things going on here character-wise with Buffy and Willow as they went on their vampire hunt during the day. Despite being humans, they're really creatures of the night since they've been hunting them for so long. There's also some weird tension going on between Xander and Dawn, which lead to him being fully mind controlled again. All said, what's about to go down is going to be very, very bad.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 21, 2014

    On the whole then, the addition of Nicholas Brendon to the creative team has been a firm success, giving us one of the most comedic issues of Buffy to date, not just in the tenth season but since the comic began in Season 8. Itll be interesting to see where we go from here, and the next issue cant come quickly enough. Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander May 20, 2014

    Overall this is a set up issue filled with humour; as such it is no jumping on point for new readers. If you have been keeping up with the Buffyverse then you will appreciate this is a necessary issue for the arc as a whole as we delve deeper into the New Rules. Read Full Review
