Buffy is trying hard to keep things civil in the Safe Zone, but certain residents seem to be pushing for confrontations of any kind - and the death toll is rising. Buffy is not making any new friends. Meanwhile, Willow is doing all she can to get fellow Wiccans released from camp - and if that means magic, she has plenty to use. Catch "deleted scenes" on the variant covers!

    =Politics and the supernatural continue to plague Buffy. Issue after issue, this book shows it is the leader for how to continue a series' adventures after it's left television. Highest possible recommendation.= Read Full Review

    Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 11 #5 really stood as a statement for what it is Buffy, Willow and Dawn are fighting for. As Spike said himself they are going to have to make some compromises and this issue was only a taste. It's good that at the end of the day this creative team is not looking to hold our hands as this isn't the kind of story where you should hold back. Read Full Review

    BtVS SEASON 11 #5 was a minor misstep in a season that I have been, otherwise, enjoying the hell out of (minor as in miniscule..as in this issue was only very good as opposed to excellent). It was well-written, as always, by Christos Gage and Georges Jeanty turned in some really nice pages that were reminiscent of his early work from Season 8 (when his work was at its best and his enthusiasm for the book showed in his pencils). My only real complaint is that things felt a little repetitious as we,once again, deal with the ogre, the blood shortage and the unrest within the camp. SCORE: 7.6

    The social commentary is fine but the plot's getting a little blurry beneath it. Buffy voluntarily went into the camp to protect the inmates, so why is her focus now on escaping? There are hints of a sinister scheme on the part of the jailers, which conveniently gives our heroes something more tangible to fight against than 'systemic rights violations in the face of a crisis'. And magic is once again more of a metaphor for something than an actual system that makes sense -- wasn't it at one time a skill to be learned, not a power to be drained (before it was a drug, that is)?
