The Sunnydale homecoming becomes less than fun as Buffy, Spike, and Willow realize that Andrew is in over his head with the Vampyr rules book and a terrible plan, and the demon they’re up against has a grudge against Slayers and a penchant for eating souls...

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 #9 brings about an end to “Return to Sunnydale” and hits all the right notes as this series should. We want to grow with these characters and one thing after the other this season they have learned from their mistakes, encounters, the new rules and become that much more of a better person than they were the day before. Gone are the days of teenage drama when that only takes them a step back. Read Full Review

    A great emotional conclusion that's true to the characters' appearances on television. This shows it's not about the slayings, it's about the characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kara Sorensen Dec 1, 2014

    Christos Gage is one of my favorite writers & after several issues of struggling to capture my attention, this story line comes together as we see all 4 characters"""Buffy, Spike, Willow & Andrew"""portrayed as human beings with failings & faults & strengths & heart! & the ending where Andrew turns over a new leaf in the way only Andrew could is absolutely brilliant!!!!!

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Nov 23, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #9 is an exceptionally paced issue that hits every beats it's looking for without missing a step. Gage's script is taut and heartfelt as it perfectly balances action and drama. The dialogue is lively, fluid, and full of snarky humor and emotional exchanges that are a continuous joy to read. It's a beautiful issue to behold as Rebekah Isaacs delivers on both the big action and dramatic sequences. Rebekah Isaacs displays a pleasant sense of motion and fluidity in her art and her storytelling abilities are truly remarkable. The more dramatic sequences are absolutely stunning and the characters faces are brimming with both emotion and expression. The visuals are only enhanced by Dan Jackson's eye popping colors which bring the pages to life in one of the series best issues yet. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 18, 2014

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 continues to be an exciting continuation of the TV series, as though I'm rather happy to see the back of the slayer hating monster, the action, excitement and emotion made the events of this issue very enticing. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - ShadowJayd Nov 19, 2014

    In both situations, sobering conversations about the nature of accountability and personal responsibility for significant past events and errors in judgement take place amidst the chaos, that may ultimately provide some sense of long-overdue closure for the characters, as well as many readers. Spikes fears of reverting back to a soulless vampire, due to the monsters ability to devour souls, force him to share his negative though enlightened perspective on his controversial involvement with Buffy in Season 6. Andrews need to assuage his guilt over the events leading up to Taras death, and consequently, the rise ofDark Willow, though seemingly honourable, is really just a selfish means to diminish his shame and remorse, as well as an ill-advised attempt to regain lost trust. His acknowledgement of culpability is respectable, but the blatant weakness of character makes it difficult for him to see wrong from right w Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 3, 2014

    In the midst of the action the comic continues to pull Buffy and Spike together teasing the possibility of reuniting the couple. And although Andrew admits to his bad judgement he doesn't exactly learn from his lesson as the final panel foreshadows more trouble on the way. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Kory Cerjak Nov 25, 2014

    I know that the writing team on Buffy is capable of more than this and I'm hoping that this was a one-time occurrence of "Why are you writing this in this way" rather than a continuing thing for the rest of the issues. Only time will tell. But at least we're done with returning to Sunnydale for now. Read Full Review
