It moves too quickly - some things that might have taken entire episodes on TV go by in just a page or two. Other than that, it's completely awesome. ( )

Overall it was well done, but I have no familiarity with the series or characters, and honestly no interest in them either. That made it difficult for me to enjoy or even understand in some places. ( )

I'm so glad that Joss wrote Buffy comics while the show was still on, because when he decided to do a season 8 after the series had ended, he had the perfect medium all set up. And he was able to do things that might have not have come off quite as well in a television format. It's a year after the events of Season 7 and it's getting interesting. The Slayers are an army and some folks aren't too thrilled about that.

This book collects the first five issues of Buffy Season 8, which includes opening arc "The Long Way Home" and "The Chain," which deals with one of the decoys chosen for a very dangerous mission. Excellent opening salvo. Can't wait to read more. ( )

I was really looking forward to this continuation of the series. The first four parts were excellent, but the last part seemed off. It really would've been better at the beginning. It doesn't make much sense at the end. ( )

It can’t match the best of the TV show, not without the contributions of the actors providing nuance to the dialogue, but it’s a darn sight better than much of season seven and many of the other adventure comics out there today.
