    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 27, 2019

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 is a solid entry to the series, but I can't help but feel, storywise, as a newcomer to the Buffy franchise, that I am missing a little something. The art is my main staying point for right now. Dan Mora always impresses me with his visuals. I am sticking with Buffy the Vampire Slayer for now. It does have some interesting plot points that have me hanging on. Hopefully, once the series gets going everything clears up a little bit more. Read Full Review

    Georges Jeanty's pencils, meanwhile, are fairly variable in quality. Jeanty's close-up shots look good, offering clean, recognizable takes on the familiar characters without resorting to blatant photo-referencing. On the other hand, there are too many medium to wide-range shots that lose detail and feature characters that are stark almost to the point of abstraction. Jeanty's work needs a more unified, consistent feel. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Oct 15, 2011

    Yep, it's poor pitiful Buffy again this issue, which is not a path I want to revisit particularly. I can only hope these echoes of the uneven Season Six won't continue for long. We already went through that in the wildly spinning highs and diverse reveals of Season Eight. I'm hoping for more of a Season Five or Season Seven vibe at this point: one featuring a foe geared to foil Buffy's particular gifts, until she figures out to foil theirs. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 15, 2011

    Writer Andrew Chambliss does a fair job in picking up for Whedon but the dialogue and character reactions simply aren't as crisp this time around. It's still worth reading, but not quite as good as I was hoping. Worth a look. Read Full Review
