Buffy returnsLike many fans of the TV show I wondered..what happened to Buffy and the gang after the show ended? Where did they go and would we ever see them again? Thankfully Joss and his crew have created a new season of Buffy adventures in comic book form that answers all of these questions and more. Buffy and the Slayers are still out there. Fighting to protect the world from the monsters and the demons...and of course the vampires. Xander runs central command now, directing the teams of Slayers to various points around the world where they're needed. And three Buffy's roam the Earth for misdirection...and other surprises. But there's a new player in town a big bad planning something and they've got people all over the world ready and waiting, including in the US army. And they're gunning for destroying Buffy and the Slayers and an old friend or two has come back to help them do it. Reading this first issue it feels like the TV series never ended and because it's Joss Whedon at the helm you know the storyline is going to be good. Even though some time has passed since we last say the characters, it feels like the same characters, but we can tell they've grown. And the dynamic has changed some between them. Joss keeps us on the edge of our seats constantly guessing...wondering who survived the collapse of Sunnydale and what is this mysterious group up to? The artwork for this series accurately captures what the main characters looked like without being overly cartoony or weird. Even better when they introduce characters not seen in the regular series, such as the General they look like actual human beings (trust me I've read series based off of TV shows and this is always one of the failings.) This is a great continuation of a fantastic TV series. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next and I can't wait to read the next volume in the series.
