    The Fandom Post - Kory Cerjak Oct 22, 2014

    Both Andrew and the off-brand Cthulhu are trying to right something that's been wronged. They're both going about it the wrong way. Willow did the same thing as off-brand Cthulhu in season six and nothing good came of it. Buffy's friends tried to do the same thing Andrew is in season six and nothing good came of it either. But humans, as we've learned, always make the same mistakes. Over and over again. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Oct 25, 2014

    Rebekah Isaac's pencils do a masterful job of conveying the character's emotions with evocative and expressive faces. She continues to stride the line perfectly between likeness and artistic interpretation and Dan Jackson's colors are exceptional. Combined with Gage's writing the creative team delivers an incredibly authentic and touching extension of the show that both fans and new readers are sure to fall in love with. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 continues to be one of the best books readers can find on shelves and with a great starting point like this there's no reason to not be reading it now.

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Oct 16, 2014

    Worth buying? If you're a Buffy fan that has been skeptical of the comics continuation of her story? Definitely. If you're just a comics fan who wants to read a good comic? Most likely, it's definitely something I recommend flipping through in the store, because you just might like it. For me, I respond with a challenge to the creators, hook me with that next issue, I dare you. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 22, 2014

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #8 is an emotional rollercoaster of an issue that covers a lot of bases between emotional struggles, dealing with the past, and dealing with the worst case scenario when it comes to the Vampyr book. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 21, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 is something that fans of the show must read, with this issue also being perfect for fans that are in the Halloween spirit. The series also continues to build upon the world that Joss Whedon build all those years ago, with Season 10 possible being the best in the comic book continuation so far. Highly recommended.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jef"feries Oct 28, 2014

    So if you're a Buffy fan who wants to read some exciting adventures of our favourite Vampire Slayer this Halloween week (unless of course, you prefer Faith, in which case, check out the equally brilliant Angel & Faith comic), then you can't go far wrong with #8. What's great about this issue is that you don't have to be familiar with every single comic issue to understand what's going on, as the way it's pulled off is designed to appeal to fans who aren't quite up to date. As a result then, it comes highly recommended, and it's great to see the quality of this series continue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 5, 2014

    The B-story involving a de-powered Old One with a very personal grudge against Slayers hunting Buffy isn't as interesting, but I'm willing to see where it leads (especially as long as the main story continues to deliver). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Oct 24, 2014

    Bear it in mind that this is just my opinion, but I really feel that this has done a disservice to the Buffy name. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was an awesome series, about a girl who got to kick ass. This comic series simply does not portray that as well as it should, and for that reason I find myself not wanting to continue with this series. Buffy, as a series, is supposed to be awesome- this Buffy is anything but. Read Full Review
