The uptick in the zompire population has the SFPD on Buffy's trail again--but this time, they need her assistance.

    I didn't get into Buffy until it had long gone off the air. I bought a complete series collection and ate up each DVD. I am so glad that the series continues in comic format under its original creator's reigns. You should find out if all the hype on Buffy is true and try this book, because it is! Read Full Review

    Regardless of that misstep, "Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season Nine" #6 is a comic to be reckoned with. If the creative team can continue to be this true to Whedon's characters, we're in for a run of powerful stories, indeed. Read Full Review

    Even if you haven't read the first arc of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine, if you're a fan of the character you should definitely find a copy, especially if you can find the old school variant cover. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Maria Selke Feb 8, 2012

    I know that dealing with difficult choices like this one is helping Buffy grow as a character. She's beginning to realize that she needs to move into her adult life. She is learning that she can rely on the help of her friends, but that her choices are ultimately her own to make and live with. The level of unconditional support she receives from Spike is heartwarming, and I especially loved the look on his face when she confided that she needed his help. I'm just not keen on the way the overall plotline slowed down with this arc. I think that the idea of making it be a two issue arc is a good thing, as we'll learn the outcome quickly. I'm ready to wait and see, and trust in the fact that there is probably a bigger plan in place than I can detect at the moment. That, and I love all the attention Spike is getting! Read Full Review

    This story isn't necessarily about slaying, although there is some slaying. On Your Own is a story of mother and child, and it is a bit surprising, even poignant. It shows the dramatic side of Buffy, and the character drama is what makes Buffy the Vampire Slayer like no other vampire thing. Read Full Review

    Stellar issue all around. The art was on point, the writing was tactful and the last few panels were emotional as ever. Great stuff.
