    Even though this is billed as the "Final Chapter," that applies more towards the Twilight story. The overall story is still going. I enjoyed the comic but it started getting a little too sappy. I understand that there's a lot still between Buffy and Angel but there's also a lot of action involved in this story that we want to see. If you're a Buffy fan, you know how good this series is. If you're not completely familiar with the Buffyverse, this won't be the best starting point. Try backing up a few issues or pick up a trade. Read Full Review

    Obviously this series has a lot of back story, but the story arcs are relatively easy enough to jump into. Twilight is probably the first arc of the series I was a bit underwhelmed by, but with Whedon's final act rapidly approaching, I'm on board for the rest of the "season." Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 8, 2010

    Rating:As the climax of the big reveal arc, this issue needed to deliver more than just warmed-over come-ons and vague notions of impending doom. As Buffy Season 8 winds down, though, the overall effect is still a positive one for me, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 8 #35 still earns a better than average 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. The art and the stunning cover by Jo Chen (who draws a fine Eliza Dushku, by the way) do a lot to make up for the weaknesses of the writer Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate May 8, 2010

    I have racked my brain and I cannot for the life of me think of a rationale for Angel becoming Twilight. That just means his guise was merely an annoying Mcguffin and the face behind the mask didn't matter to either Whedon or Meltzer. Buffy the Vampire Slayer readers deserve better. Read Full Review
