    While this book may never live up to the classic television series' standards, it remains downright entertaining nonetheless, and would be very easy to recommend to Buffy fans if all of them weren't already reading it anyway. Read Full Review

    I was as happy as anybody when I originally heard that there was going to be a season eight, but I was expecting it to be like all the other seasons – not content with the status quo. Some of those changes didn't go over all that well (pretty much all of season six), but most succeeded. In not making changes that could alienate readers, they've found a way to alienate them regardless. Of course, it's still early, so I'll stick around for a bit longer to see if they can turn things around. Read Full Review

    Anybody familiar with the way Whedon works knew how this story was going to play out, but it could have been enlivened with stronger character interaction between Buffy and Faith as well as Buffy and Willow, who only get a moment and don't say anything particularly witty. The oomph missing from the writing however is replaced by the strength of George Jeanty's pencils. Any Owens' inks cannot be ignored either. His lines give depth and texture to the cast, and Dave Stewart's choice of colors enhance the mood of the story with dark shades in surveillance rooms and bright hues in bathrooms. Read Full Review
