    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Mar 8, 2008

    Is it Whedon or Goddard who can be credited for a lack of cliche and pretension? Is it Whedon or Goddard who can take a bow for continuing a mature tone that lacks prurience and engages the audience as sophisticated people who are not interested in burlesque humor and see no moral outrage in homosexuality or lesbianism? Perhaps, it's both. If so, Whedon and Goddard write a seamless, beautiful story that's enriched in the humanistic elements that makes Buffy the Vampire Slayer so damn enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Add another nearly flawless cover by Jun Foster and some arresting and compelling yet familiar interior artwork by the dependable and incomparable Georges Jeanty, that to remember this comic for that single image on the third page (initially shocking as it may have been to some) alone would be as unfair as dismissing the TV show by its silly name. Thats what some clueless people did, the rest of us know better. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Daniel Yanez Mar 9, 2008

    Drew Goddard wrote five great episodes for the Buffy's final TV season. I'm happy to say he hasn't lost his touch. The characters and sense of humor have all been transferred to comic book form, faithfully. I love the awkward moments Buffy and Satsu face with the men – I couldn't stop laughing! I just really hope Whedon doesn't keep writing about Buffy's “experimentations”. They seem so out of character to me. Read Full Review

    It's a shame, too, because what surrounds the incident is essentially as perfect as anyone could ask of a Buffy book. And maybe in hindsight, the giant misstep won't look as egregious. But wow. For better or for worse, I was definitely surprised by this issue. Read Full Review
