    Like the song says, "We've only just begun," with Angel, Spike, Faith and a cadre of great characters yet to put in an appearance, and with an upcoming magical smackdown between Amy and Willow, like a fine bottle of Merlot, this comic can only get better with time. Read Full Review

    Other threads percolate under the radar: who Amys lover was (still held in reserve by the military), what that weird chest scar means for its recipients, which of Buffys old paramours is still haunting her dreams. No telling which one will come up first, but this issue was definitely familiar ground, full of intriguing incidents, funny quips, deadly danger and characterization galore. Welcome back, Buffy! You were missed! Read Full Review

    I had another point around here somewhere. Oh yeah, my reasons why the sudden size enlargement has changed things.

Rightly concerned about the sudden explosion in super-human girls, the military has classified the slayer army as a possible terrorist threat. However, those readers who complained that the pacing of the first issue was a bit slow, rest assured thats not the problem in issue #2. Why? Because the military, and other forces as well, are out to get the slayers, and they're not f@#%ing around. Read Full Review
