It was packed with bigger item and it moved around the box. Since that happened the edges were bent, they should of rapped the comic better and made sure there was no extra space in the box.

Not the best of the series May 26 2013
By Chris Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
REVIEW COURTESY OF ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY

On last week's episode of THE BIG BANG THEORY, Leonard decides Buffy is the perfect show for he and Penny to share. At the end of an episode Penny says it was "Cute". This really has nothing to do with the review, but the scene was serious deja vu for me. I can't count how many times I've tried to get my fiancé to watch Buffy. It's gotten to the point that I'm starting to take it personally.

Anyway!

It saddens me to report that GUARDED is one of the weaker story arcs so far for Season 9. Buffy finds herself working for Kennedy (I knew there was a reason I never liked her) as a Slayer bodyguard for the rich and famous. Buffy and Kennedy take a gig protecting the founder of a Facebook-like website called Tin Can. There's some mild amusement when it's discovered that Tin Can was partially funded by those demon-lovers at Wolfram & Hart. Needless to say hijinxs ensue. Kennedy and Buffy argue over how to handle things (and literally come to blows) and Buffy realizes she can never just look out for herself. She's a Slayer. She saves people.

This epiphany was long time coming (and I hope it leads to some better story lines), but the whole arc felt a little flat. GUARDED falls far short of the type of dialogue and plotting I've come to expect from Buffy (especially when compared to the stellar writing going on at ANGEL & FAITH). And the artwork. Oy vey. Half the time you can't tell who a character is supposed to be - and when the dialogue also isn't working it's often difficult to figure it out. This is a serious problem with the series and one I hope they rectify sooner rather than later.

All in all though, it's still Buffy. The television had low points as well and always managed to find its way again. I'm hoping the same is true for Season 9.

Seriously weak July 8 2013
By Will Samuel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After the last two volumes, this was a real disappointment. The story of Buffy working as a bodyguard with Kennedy is interesting enough, and the idea of a demonic Facebook was worth a smile, but just as things were starting to get interesting it suddenly ended, and we're whisked off to an unrelated story that
can only be described as a GLAAD PSA.

A bullied, misunderstood gay kid in a small town gets attacked by a vamp, the cute guy he secretly has a crush on appears for no reason whatsoever and helps him kill it, and despite having no powers or training, the two decide that they can be slayer and watcher. The rest of the book involves them killing zomires while smiling constantly and making way too many flirtatious one liners. So the story is predictable and clichéd, the characters are never developed in the slightest, and it's never explained how these kids are able to kill so many vamps or why they should be the ones doing it. I expected better.

These Buffy comics are getting worse and worse. June 20 2013
By Mike R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since when would Buffy go off on a demon, thinking all demons are bad. If anyone on that show saw the differences in individuals it was her.

A Step Down And Off The Game Aug. 26 2013
By William Kendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This collection feels like it's spinning its wheels a bit, trying to get itself in position for the latter half of Season Nine. The first story, featuring Buffy with a former slayer, Kennedy, is okay, but feels rather isolated- the lack of other major supporting characters seems to hinder the story somewhat. The second story revolves around a boy who decides to become a slayer, well... just because.
