    This issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, despite containing nothing newsworthy, still exemplifies writing and visual storytelling at its very best. Read Full Review

    Dracula, cheated by the Japanese vampires in a poker game, realizes that he's lost his “secret powers”, so he decides to help Buffy. And the cliffhanger we get is just dreadful. Looks like there's going to be a slayer massacre. Not good, but at least it'll be a hell of a challenge for Buffy and company. I'll be there to read it. Read Full Review

    It is easy to cry and moan over some of the recent revelations in Buffy Season Eight. Not only easy, but fair. But whether one agrees with these events or not, it's hard to argue the constant improvements the title has managed over the last few story arcs. Again, the series is beginning to feel continuously more authentic, and shouldn't be missed by any fan of the Whedonverse. Read Full Review

    The resolution to this arc should be good with a pissed off Dracula and the Slayer troops hunting down the vamp gang in an effort to retrieve Buffys scythe. Like I said, this is not a bad comic, but it also feels light in content and its not as good as previous installments of this great series. Read Full Review
