Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #12 comicsBuffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven comes to a close with Buffy and Willow‘s powers restored but at odds with the villainous Press Secretary who has used the law to usurp the magical powers of various witches and creatures including a very large dragon whose magic she just drained. Don’t worry though, the dragon will make a memorable final appearance before all is said and done.

The theme of the season has certainly been topical, given the government’s attacks against those it sees as different and dangerous. The choice to end the comic, and the season, by resetting everything back to “normal” is certainly worthy of discussion.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #10 comic reviewOn the run and seeking proof about what the United States Government is really up to concerning internment of magical creatures, Buffy and the Scoobies break into a secret facility where they discover all manner of odd experiments created from a mix of science and magic including a cyborg octopus. Realizing government scientists are draining magic and imbuing their own creations with them, the Scoobies seek out more answers… by kidnapping the Vice President of the United States.

While this issue doesn’t reveal the person behind the strange government experiments it does feature plenty of action and put a ticking clock on our heroes to fight the good fight. With satellites ready to go into orbit to drain the magical powers of everyone within the borders of the United States (as a start), it’s time for action.

Angel Season Eleven #5 comic reviewSent by Illyria through time into the vampire’s past, Angel and Fred find themselves on a ship bound for the new world where its crew is being picked off by Angelus and Darla. As with the first opening arc, this isn’t a walk down memory lane where Fred and Angel are observers to events, instead the pair are active in the timestream and able to make changes to the past.

While Angel is able to avoid being seeing by either Darla or his less soul-filled self, Fred isn’t so lucky. Seeking out the rumored magical item on the ship, Fred is able to find it but both vampires also find her. So how does Angel save his friend without directly confronting himself and possibly making large changes to the timeline (as you’d think Darla and Angelus would remembering running into an Angel with a soul)?

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.
