Getting help from Dracula seemed like a good idea, until he stole the Vampyr book—and Xander! Now Buffy, Spike, Dawn, Willow, and Giles must save Xander and retrieve the book before it’s too late. Dracula has already begun to study how the lack of magical rules can work in his favor . . .

    This is such a faithful addition to the Buffy canon, it makes me weep. All "continuations" from long gone series should be this good. If you're not a Buffy fan, get on board, and join the drama and insanity. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Now I'm just hoping that things continue along the same vein and that the story gets even better since I'm having a hell of a time with this series right now. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Kory Cerjak Jun 19, 2014

    The most surprising part of this issue was, of course, Dawn. She was never an extremely strong character in the show because Trachtenberg's acting was, frankly, bad. The emotional beats were ruined by her lack of ability (then, not sure about now) to act properly in reaction to them. But now, there's not that crutch of acting. We see a face and we see words and it's so much easier to see the pain in Dawn's face as the emotions of losing her mother come back to her. It's a powerful feeling that most of us have to go through and none of us look forward to. Now Dawn has to go through it twice. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jun 17, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 is really starting to shift into a higher gear as though there may still be some room for improvement it's starting to become much more entertaining and exciting. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 18, 2014

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #4 mixes a little old with a little new. While the situation is new, an old face reappears which escalates the problem from what it originally was. The rules are now the least of their problems when they can't fix what the rules have already created. Read Full Review

    The deeper we have gotten into the new rules the more legs this series seems to have. Buffy is an old character in terms of narrative we are now into the tenth season and the fact this team are able to mix things up is truly refreshing. The New rules are coming in to force and the best we can do is hold on to our hats and go along for the ride. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jun 18, 2014

    The title is smart, witty and captivating. You remain in familiar territory here, but at the same time theres still plenty of new stuff so theres never the feeling that youve been through this before in the past nine seasons. Gage and Brendon are telling a storythat feels fresh and exciting, and theyre very much the creative team that should be on Buffy for the rest of Season 10 if not more. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 24, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #4 is the first issue to deal with with Dawn and Xander's relationship issues directly as Dawn explains her "reset" following almost being wiped out of existence in Season Nine. As to what this means for the couple long term, we'll just have to wait and see. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 18, 2014

    "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10" #4 has the series chugging along quite nicely; if this level of quality continues (and I can't imagine why it wouldn't), this will be the strongest of the three comic book "seasons" by a long shot. Read Full Review
