Buffy The Vampire Slayer #11 (Season 8) – Review

By: Joss Whedon (script), Georges Jeanty (pencils), Andy Owens (inks) & Michelle Madsen (colors)

Since I can’t get my Buffy on TV anymore, this’ll have to do. That said, I’ve fallen in love with Season 8 in comic format. I guess I’m one of the many that will read even a napkin written by Joss Whedon. As usual, he does a great job on this issue.

Buffy takes Satsu (another slayer in training) to fight a vampire’s nest. After Satsu confesses her love for Buffy, Twilight appears out of nowhere and confronts Buffy for the first time. He kicks her butt pretty badly and luckily for her he doesn’t kill her just yet. We get a funny moment when Twilight is about to remove his mask only to scratch his neck. This guy has something to do with Buffy’s past – he knows her traits and her story. I can’t think who he might be.

This stand alone issue gives a glance at what Buffy will have to deal with in the future. This issue is the perfect model on how to write stand alone issues – a mix of action, character development and humor. Writers, please take note. (Grade: B+)
