    "You and I are of a kind. In a different reality, I could have called you friend."--classic Star Trek line spoken by the Romulan Commander to Captain James T. Kirk in the episode "Balance of Terror." Faith seems to be starting to misquote it when attempting to assassinate Gigi. (IMDB) Read Full Review

    Vaughan writes this issue quite well, but I've seen this done in the show before. I've seen Faith enter worlds that aren't her own. I've seen her find people she identifies with. The first few pages actually reminded me what I saw in those earlier seasons. I'm probably holding this series up to a microscope, but I think it has earned that distinction. The television show was a marvelous product. If a comic book series is to exist and continue the adventures of Buffy Summers, it needs to give us something new. I'm not seeing that so far. I'm by no means a hardcore fan, but I have seen all seven seasons. Those more dedicated than I might forgive the lack of originality simply because they're getting more. Those only partially familiar with this world might be just fine as well. But I find myself in an odd spot, not caring about what's going on and wondering when I'll see something fresh.

    Vaughn continues to write the dialogue and action for Buffy with a professional hand that is enjoyable and nearly peer to Whedon. However, this issue feels predictable, which detracts from the entertainment value. The character issues and development showcased here, though, certainly make for a promising story arc in No Future for You. Read Full Review
