For many people, Buffy The Vampire Slayer ended at season seven. But for the true (and comic book) fans, the series continued. Seasons eight and nine have passed, and the much anticipated issue #1 of season ten has arrived.
Do you need to read the previous seasons to read #1? Not really, but you totally should. The gang refers to, and summarizes, past activities in a way that makes it easy enough to follow along, although it doesn’t make up for the amazing heartbreak, drama, and glory of reading the full series.
Season ten #1 starts with a bang, full of lovely panel layouts, bright colors, awesome creatures, and that snarky, snappy Buffy dialogue. I literally laughed out loud multiple times.
“New season. New rules. The age-old battle of Slayer vs. vampire is the focus of Buffy’s life once again—it’s downright nostalgic! But with all the toying with magic she’s done lately, this girl should know it’s time for another game change…shouldn’t she?”
