    Unlike previous volumes where all of the issues went together this one is each issue is standalone and without an overall arcing theme. Harmon's back...and this time she's got her own reality TV show. And she, along with the Twilight, are working at setting up the slayers as villains. In the second story kitty vampire toy's are being shipped, but they have a dark side to them. They're demons coming to kill they slayers, but when the slayer's have stopped them things take a nasty turn in the polls of public opinion. Faith and Giles make their return, still tracking down outcast slayers to help them out...only this time their journey leads them to another surviving Watcher and a demon watching over a town. And in the last story Dawn has suffered her 3rd transformation and is now a living doll, can Willow and Buffy help her out of this one? Frankly I'm just not really sure what to say about this volume. If you examine each issue as its on TV episode it isn't bad...just a bit quirky. But taken as an entire volume it doesn't quite work together. There's no continuity between the issues and in some places the humor just falls flat. And it just isn't as interesting. It feels like the longer this series is going on the less coherence it has from the earlier issues where they're fighting the big bad guy. Lately it feels more like a slice of life comic and not even the most interesting parts of it. I get they maybe working towards something bigger with the branding of slayers as evil, but its just lacking a bit for me.
