I’ve enjoyed most of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer graphic novels, but this one was surprisingly excellent. If you haven’t been keeping up to date with the graphic novels, I highly recommend you do so, so that you can get here. It hit my fandom spot in all the right places. I also really love all the story lines they’ve mined from the magic seed idea. The only character that needs an arc is Willow. They seem to have forgotten about her mostly, although she did have her own short series.
Nicholas Brendan (Xander) has joined the writing team now and I don’t know if it’s because of him, or what, but I feel like these issues really came back to basics with a lot of the characters. I can’t wait to see where it’s going!
This fulfills the book with non-human characters, the book with magic, the graphic novel, and the book based on or turned into a TV show requirements.
