    Never read a Buffy before? Start here. There's action, drama, humor, and a few scares. The Slayer rules! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - MrComicBook Jul 14, 2012

    Georges Jeanty returns this month on art, and his art has never been better. The three months off gave Jeanty plenty of time to work on the faces, which look closer to their actor counterparts. There are many close ups of Buffy, and she looks as close to Sarah Michelle Gellar as she ever has. One of his bigger problems is facial details on characters that somewhat enter the background. Not a problem here. The quick action scene in the beginning works better than the few we have seen so far this season. Jeanty's action scenes can seem stiff and action figure life. One panel sadly suffers from this, but the rest has a slight sense of motion to it. Buffy's reaction after being shot at was one of the better facial expressions of this issue. Read Full Review

    Visual hiccups aside, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9" #11 is definitely one of the better issues of the series, and it makes me feel like the comic is back on track. With a great cliffhanger to lead into next month as well, I'm definitely excited to see what happens next. This is the sort of writing I like to see about my favorite slayer. Read Full Review

    A couple of other interesting tidbits: Spike's friend Eldre Koh of the Nitobe needs help in his quest for vengeance (which seems really hard to be setting something up that doesn't really fit in this issue) and Buffy learns the police under Detective Dowling have started a special task force to deal with the Zompires. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 23, 2012

    This issue left me pretty cold, sadly, with the character in overly familiar territory doing everything she can to keep from evolving or being an adult, even though she's got to be in her mid-20′s by now. (Wanna feel old? Think about this: Sarah Michelle Gellar is 35.) Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9 #11 meanders through a recycled plot, and while it's well-drawn, as always, nothing really happens in this issue, earning 1.5 out of 5 stars overall. I'm hoping that next issue will recover, and that this was just a one-issue slump, but I'm just not feeling this one... Read Full Review
