Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hoping for more... I' ve never been a great fan of comic books to begin with, so maybe that's why I can't fully appreciate this one. I wanted to try the first one because I miss the show and I wanted to see what happened after season 7. I was kind of disappointed because I would prefer the story to continue in a novel. It would leave a lot more to imagination with more details and descriptions. And it would be a longer read... I hate it when a story is too short!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it. It was different than watching the series but was I "jonesing" for a Whedon fix, and this comic series did the trick. Now if they would only make a movie......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Buffy I Remember... I was so upset when the TV series finished and so when I found out that the Buffy storyline had continued through a new medium, the comic book genre, I was both excited and hesitant. I was excited because I grew up watching Buffy through my teens and into university; I found that there were many things in my life that paralleled the emotions and situations of the characters - beyond the excitement of demons and vampires, those characters were real and I identified with them. I, however, was slightly hesitant to read a "comic book" because I've never been "into" comics. That said, I took the chance and I'm happy that I did. It was a great continuation of the story and brought my satisfaction that the story was going on living up to the genius of Joss Whedon...it had the surprises that I loved in Buffy where interesting things were revealed about the characters to the audience as well as the characters themselves, and the brilliant humor that belongs to Joss Whedon. It was so engaging...I would not say this is your average comic book. There are a few things I struggled with not being accustomed to the comic book genre but I found those things subsided as I continued reading the book and the series. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series thus far, and look forward to future issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Scooby Gang is Back! I have missed this show so much since it went off the air and was very excited to hear about the new Season 8 comics! This first volume is amazing! If you were I fan of the show you'll love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unputdownable Amazing. Read it, especially if you are a fan of the series. The sky is the limit in comic books (unlike a television series, which has budget and time constraints). The monsters are bigger, the weapons are cooler, and there are more characters. Otherwise, almost everything is consistent with the TV series. Another brilliant job by Joss Whedon.
