    This is a good interlude in the big Buffy storyline and good entry point for people who haven't read Buffy. Fun, but I'm looking forward to the return of THE Slayer. Read Full Review

    I really had a good time with this story. The Buffyverse has had a new character added into the mix thats turned into something much more. Ive been behind on the series and now I feel like I should give the comic Buffyverse another go. If youve wanted to check out Buffy but felt like you were too far behind, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #14 isnt just the introduction to a great new character, but a good point to start reading the series.

    "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9" #14 could have been a disaster, but it makes the comic all the more appealing in how well it succeeds. This is easily my favorite issue of the new series to date, and it's turned the book into one where I'm eager to see what happens next. All in all, a good show by all parties involved.

    Any change from series regular Georges Jeanty for me is a bonus, so Karl Moline is a welcome change of pace. What Moline'a artistic style brings is a consistency even if Im not completely swayed by his work. His pencils are well conceived and steady; the book may never astound but it certainly doesnt disappoint, His facial expressions dont exactly work at times but they do convey what the script is saying and, after witnessing Jeantys inconsistencies issue after issue, its nice to have something that actually works throughout.

    Billy's first appearance could have been better, but it's a good start. Welcome to the Buffyverse Billy. Let's hope you stay around for a while. Read Full Review

    I understand what Espenson is doing here, but the story is pretty damn pat (he ends up having to stake and kill the football jock who has been harassing him). This kind of story would seem to fit much better in something like the Tales of Slayers anthology series than in the middle of an ongoing season arc. If I had found it there, or if was just a one-issue tale (I don't need a second month of Billy's misadventures), I might give it a pass, but 14 issues in, as the season is still trying to find its focus, it simply doesn't work. Pass. Read Full Review
