From Joss Whedon and Erika Alexander comes a series that returns Buffy's Rupert Giles to high school! But this time-as a grown man living in a teenage body-Giles will be a student instead of a teacher. At an inner-city LA-area school, when a mystical influence is detected and teachers start to go missing, Giles enrolls to investigate. What he finds is more than vampires and demons; something unusual and frightening is happening here. If Giles can get through one day as a student, he'll have a chance to find out who, what, and where-but high school is still hell, y'all.

    Teenage Giles is investigating vampires at a charter school and encounters a threat much larger. The premise is set out in this issue, so I'm ready to see where this is going to go next. The visuals are fine, though the style is something that's going to require me getting used to on the lead. The horror's back in high school, with Giles stuck growing up and protecting his classmates. Read Full Review

    Buffy Season 11: Giles #1 had a shaky start, though the story evened out by the end. This is a new experience for Giles and this is a great time to get into what other ways he will have to adjust being this age again. At the end of the day it is cool just to know that this is what Giles was up to when the craziness with the Safe Zone was unfolding. Read Full Review

    While the comic is entertaining, it feels a bit too much like reshuffled greatest hits of the Buffyverse with the focus on Giles rather than a high school Giles rather than Buffy this time around. For fans. Read Full Review

    There's just enough mystery about both the demon and Roux that you'll want to keep reading to find out more. Read Full Review

    I think the introduction of the plot wasn't executed strongly and sadly leaves me not wanting to continue on. Read Full Review

    Every page is packed with so many weird dialog choices, non sequiturs, and inexplicable happenings that reading this issue was a chore. A certain amount of mystery is good, but I had to stop and wonder 'what is happening here?' 'who is this person?' and 'what is that character even saying?' with almost every panel. Baffling.
