Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #6 comic reviewIt seems Buffy‘s days in the internment camp is coming to an end. After an ambush by some of the less-pleasant inhabitants working for the guards, Buffy begins to suspect something wicked behind the scenes of the already unpleasant situation. With the help of Willow, the Slayer and her bestie sneak into the heavily-locked-down area in the camp learn more. What they find will force them to make some difficult choices in the days to come.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #6 is a turning point in the shortened season. Now that Buffy knows that the government is looking for ways to drain all magical creatures (which would kill Spike and countless others), she’s going to need a plan.

Angel Season Eleven #3 comic reviewStuck deep in the past during the age of Old Ones where a far-less-attractive version of Illyria battled another ancient evil creature, Angel and Fred struggle to get a handle on why her alter-ego brought them to this time and place and what they can do to survive and make it home safely.

While Illyria comes and goes, occasionally putting Fred in the middle of danger, Angel discovers a bit about the arrival of a second Old One and what began the fight between the two giants.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #3 comic reviewI’m not sure if Joss Whedon and his comic team anticipated a Trump presidency when laying out the events for the Eleventh Season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or not, but it’s certainly timely. As the government begins making good on their threats, demons and witches are rounded up to relocation camps. Much of the issue deals with the team’s various attempts to protect its younger members, but when the shit hits the fan and a Slayer arrives to forcibly remove Willow and Spike things get real.

Willing to fight to protect her family and friends, Buffy is talked down from starting a revolution by Willow. Choosing to go with her best friend and Spike, Buffy says farewell to the rest of the Scoobies and begins a new journey.

Angel Season Eleven #1

Angel Season Eleven #1 comic reviewAlthough I’ve kept up with Buffy the Vampire Slayer in comics I can’t say the same for its spin-off (which probably has something to do with most of its best characters getting killed off). Picking up an Angel comic for the first time in a couple of years I was met by a pleasant surprise. My favorite Angel/Buffy supporting character is back. Okay, you’ve got my attention.

Angel and the resurrected Fred are in Dublin, a home Angel has steered clear of most of his undead life. Helping out a friend with an exorcism leads to discovery of something very wrong with the world which seems to tie back to the vampire’s days as Angelus. As much as he hates to relive those days, Angel’s answers appear to be in the past.
