Format: Paperback
The art work is very poor in this volume, characters are almost unrecognizable at times. Aside from that, we are being sent to the future to Fray's time, where she is a different character than she was when we first met here 8 or so years ago. The people of the future use terrible slang all of a sudden, and overall the whole comic is hard to understand.

The most redeeming quality is the last issue, which has nothing to do with Fray, brings back some good memories of Buffy season 1.

After three great volume, this one is a LITTLE slow down. But, it is still worth it and you will still be entertain with this one, maybe not as much as volume 1, 2 and 3.

HASH(0x9955ed14) out of 5 stars Good not great... Oct. 13 2009
By Ross Rankin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a huge BtVS fan and own the whole TV series on DVD. I've really like most of the Season 8 comics to date. Volume 4, if you are collecting the graphic novel format versus the individual issues, is the weakest of collection so far. While I did enjoy seeing the Fray characters again, it felt like more of a stunt that a real plot point. The Willow portion also felt unsatisfying as well, sorry its hard to explain while trying to be vague to avoid major spoilers.

The side plot of Dawn, was, in reality, kind of stupid. I appreciate that they wanted to add some more fantastical elements that cover ground they could do in a TV show with a moderate budget, but this was beyond the spirit of the series. The "there are consequences to relationships" is very Joss, but the results here feel like fodder for a few quips and jokes rather than a solid allegory.

So while I'll tune into for another volume, my passion for this version of BtVS is waning and will be gone without a solid set of issues and some new meaty hooks to build my desire and suspense for a volume 6.

HASH(0x9955ef60) out of 5 stars Um....what just happened? Aug. 29 2009
By S. Penrose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was loving this series and the last trade (Vol. 3) was my favorite. So, my expectations for this were high. Sadly, they were dashed quickly. This tale of time travel and forest creatures fell so short is was depressing. The future slayer story line was hard to follow (so much so that I wondered if I was missing pages), the dialogue was confusing, and the art was atrocious. The reveal of who Buffy met in NYC was lost on me because the art wasn't clear as to who it was. So disappointing. This entire story seems pointless and Dawn being a Centaur is beyond annoying. Big step down. :(
HASH(0x9956a1bc) out of 5 stars His work is just as good as Jeanty's has been on the first 3 volumes April 7 2015
By leofiregod - Published on Amazon.com

Karl Moline that drew for the Joss Whedon series Fray takes over art duties from Georges Jeanty in issues #16-19 collected in this volume. That's kinda fitting since Fray costars in the story arc "Time of Your Life" that spans those 4 issues. His work is just as good as Jeanty's has been on the first 3 volumes. All of the main characters are easily recognizable even though they look different than Jeanty's interpretations. Where Moline's work shines is in the future segments of the story. He brought Melaka Fray's futuristic New York world life. His art gets 5 stars. Unfortunately, Moline's wasn't the only art in the volume. Issues #20's beginning and ending are drawn by Georges Jeanty. Those pages are just as well drawn as all of his previous work. It's the art in the middle of the issue I have a little bit of a problem with. That art is drawn by Eric Wright and Ethen Beavers. It's not terrible art, but it is a lot more cartoon-y than the rest of the art has been in issues #1-19. It's a dream sequence that is almost a caricature of the rest of the series. It fit the story, but I'm still not a fan because the art is a step down from the tremendous work so far. The art for that issue gets 4 stars. Because of the art in the last issue dragging down the score, the overall art gets 4.5 stars.

I loved the main "Time of Your Life" arc. It is my favorite of the 4 main arcs so far. I've rated all of the main arcs so far 5 stars, but if I had to put them in order from favorite to least, it would be this one first, volume 3 second, volume 1 third, and volume 2 last. What I liked so much about this volume was that it reminded me of your normal superhero cross-company title where 2 heroes are both working on the same case end up fighting before realizing that they are on the same side. In this case, the 2 heroes were both Slayers. Seeing Buffy and Fray go toe-to-toe was great. Add to that a centaur, Dark Willow, and some tree people, and you have one entertaining read. Joss Whedon is still at the top of his game writing. This story arc gets 5 stars, but just like in the art segment, the story was a little cartoon-y. Like I also said above, the cartoonish nature of the story fit because it was dream sequence, but it was a let down after the stellar story arc that had preceded it. The fact that Jeph Loeb was writing this standalone issue had my hopes up, but this is far from his best work. I'm giving the writing for issue #20 3.5 stars. The not so stellar issue #20 brings the total writing score down to 4.25 stars overall. I'll round that down and call it 4.

The overall score would then also be a 4.25. So, I'll round that down to 4 as well. It's sad that my favorite story arc is part of the owest rated volume in the series so. In one of my reviews for a previous volume of Season 8, I stated that normally standalone issues usually aren't very good and detract from the overall big picture stories that it falls between. The standalone issue in this volume is a prime example of that. This volume is well worth the read, but not as great as it would have been had issue #20 not been included.
HASH(0x9956a360) out of 5 stars Kinda confusing Feb. 9 2014
By E. S. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume of Buffy Season 8 was quite confusing for me. First, there's a different penciller, so I had to figure out who everyone was all over again (he draws Dawn the best). Then, a lot of it took place in the future with Fray and it really wasn't explained very well. By the time I figured out what was going on, I was halfway through and had to go back and start over. Not that I minded, much, though, because I am just whipping through these and might prefer to savor them a bit.

HASH(0x9956a234) out of 5 stars Review by Patricia's Particularity May 3 2012
By Patricia Leppla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The fourth installment in the 8th season of Buffy takes you hundreds of years into a much darker New York City in the future. Here Buffy encounters a slayer named Melaka Fray. Dark Willow also returns. What is odd is that Melaka is the only slayer... the only slayer who also has a brother that is a vampire leader, Harth. While Buffy originally works alongside Melaka she finds herself alone, Maleka having sided with the evil Willow after promising her that their world would end if Buffy continued to live. In the end Buffy makes a very difficult decision to get back home to the present. A decision that could have repercussions in the future (my own personal opinion).

On the fun side, if time traveling doesn't give you enough of that supernatural element, our favorite little sister Dawn is no longer a Giant but a Centaur. Also, another character makes a return when Buffy and Willow travel to New York City: Willow's girlfriend, Kennedy.

A few questions come up while reading this installment... what is Dark Willow's purpose in the future? Did she trick Maleka in telling her that the world would end if Buffy lived? If so, why? What will happen to Buffy's and present day Willow's relationship now? What is going to happen to Dawn? Will Xander fall in love with someone new now that Renee is dead?

So far, out of the installments, this one gives you more questions, all of which I believe will be crucial to the future of the Scooby Gang and their battle against Twilight. And once again the graphics are amazing and Joss Whedon has not lost his touch in making sure that Season 8 is staying true to all that is Buffy.
