  1. So far, Angel and Faith is crushing it, and Buffy is just kind of there. I am still happy to read it, and look forward to picking it up, but thats more on the strength of the history of characters.

    Georges Jeanty’s art continues to affect my enjoyment of the book. All his characters look far too young. His Detectives look like they are just out of high school. He does fine work when he does super close ups on the face, but as soon as you get any distance things get all wonky.

    I am bummed that we are stuck with his art the entire season, I look forward to fill-in’s and the miniseries planned. (After Phil Noto does Angel and Faith, maybe we can get him over to do an issue of Buffy too!)

    • I have to agree with all your points- A & F being the superior book and Jeanty’s artwork not quite living up to the canon. Supposing the larger arc of the season is only just becoming apparent, I will definitely sticking with, as Whedon always surprises.

  2. I like how this season is simpler than the last. It’s back to the basics but keeping the character growth that occurred over the past season. So far this season is starting off on a better foot than the last. Plus, the Spike involvement makes it more fun.

  3. This was fine, but not nearly as much fun as last issue. The storyline is starting to remind me of Season 6 a bit, and I can’t stand hyper-depressed Buffy.
