Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel Review

    Pretty much everything I said in my review of the corresponding Buffy volume applies here, as well. A terribly planned and structured nightmare of a crossover event that brings everything you hate about Marvel and DC crossovers to a smaller, much less profitable property. The story was dull and devoid of any charm you'd typically associate with Buffy, opting instead for generic bad guys doing generic evil things and giving generic bad guy speeches. Why it had to be this way, I'll never know, and Pretty much everything I said in my review of the corresponding Buffy volume applies here, as well.

Why it had to be this way, I'll never know, and it's a real shame that the series that started out so promisingly devolved into this pathetic mess as quickly as it did.

    Another mediocre addition to the new Buffy continuity, but the ending was surprisingly fairly solid. 3.4/5 stars.

    I read this in literally 15 minutes, its a quick and easy read and its setting the foundation for the other graphic novels within the series. I enjoyed the short time I read it. I dont feel like its fair to even give this a rating just because it was so short and it was just setting the plot up for the rest of the series, but I feel 3 stars is fair for what I got. If you have never heard of Buffy The Vampire Slayer you will have absolutely no clue who these characters are, which is fine, youll I read this in literally 15 minutes, it’s a quick and easy read and it’s setting the foundation for the other graphic novels within the series.

If you have never heard of Buffy The Vampire Slayer you will have absolutely no clue who these characters are, which is fine, you’ll learn who they are throughout this series but I think you’ll have a better reading experience knowing the characters and their back stories, but that’s just my opinion.

    A well crafted final issue after four issues that missed the mark and didn't move the story forward, except for establishing an uneasy alliance between Buffy and AngelThe Buffy reboot has fallen far from grace since the first potential-filled arc that felt so fresh. The story of the main series and this spinoff has been torn into messy pieces by going in a hundred directions at once, leaving interesting developments unfinished, introducing new characters left and right and leaving all characters A well crafted final issue after four issues that missed the mark and didn't move the story forward, except for establishing an uneasy alliance between Buffy and AngelThe Buffy reboot has fallen far from grace since the first potential-filled arc that felt so fresh. The story of the main series and this spinoff has been torn into messy pieces by going in a hundred directions at once, leaving interesting developments unfinished, introducing new characters left and right and leaving all characters underdeveloped as a result.The first four issues of this series and collection achieved very little as they reduced Drusilla to a sidelined minion and introduced an unoriginal main villain in the form of the Hellmother, who took up a lot of space. These issues did however manage to establish a somewhat interesting relationship between Buffy and Angel. The very last issue managed to show a glimpse of potential for the series moving forward with a cool (and insane Cordelia) and an amazing Anya, but it is too late, and establishing a multiverse seems over-ambitious for a series that has not yet accomplished the basic development of its core characters.This is the end of the road for me with this series for now. I may catch a legacy edition or two some ways down the road, if things get better.
