Book Description

May 7 2013 Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse Numbered) (Book 3)
In a bold move to give disenfranchised Slayers a meaningful societal role (with pay), Kennedy recruits Buffy to act as bodyguard for high-profile clientele. But unlike the other recruits, Buffy struggles to abandon her Slaying instincts and looks for demony threats where none lie (much to Kennedy's dismay). So it's only natural that her first job is to protect a tech mogul who just so happens to be running from demon assassins! Collects Buffy Season 9 #11–#15.

* Executive produced by Joss Whedon!

* Introduces Billy the vampire slayer!

* Guest writers Jane Espenson and Drew Greenberg!

3.0 out of 5 stars It was bent on the edges Sept. 7 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of the series May 26 2013
By Chris Black - Published on Amazon.com

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good continuation of an interesting storyline June 28 2014

First off, watch the series and read season 8 if you haven't already. Watching the Angel series would be helpful, too.
I like "the monsters are real and we know it" types of stories. I liked the early Anita Blake books and the Sookie Stackhouse books I have read (southern vampire?), as well as a number of other similar books. With vampires, demons and slayers in the public eye, it adds a whole new dimension to the Buffyverse.
The only disappointment was that I wish Buffy had made a couple of different choices, but then these choices do fit with her grown-up self. I will be buying the next book and the one after that and...
