[Jordie Bellaire] · Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vol. 2 [high-school PDF] Ebook Epub Download æ Buffy and friends deal with the fallout of the revelation that she is the Slayer, while Xander struggles with his new vampiric side, and the march to Hellmouth continues as Drusilla makes her move The character dynamics are the main draw to this series so far The action is great, and the stakes feel suitably high, but the relationship between the core 3 is definitely outstripping all that As Xander and Willow grow closer and then apart in the attempt to deal with Xander s new vampire ness, Buffy and Robin Wood get acquainted, and Giles begins to spin out of control It s all very Buffy, and I love it.
We lose Dan Mora on art in favour of David Lopez, who is as good as he always is, if a bit heavy on the GIANT EYES This isn t read as Single Issues I agree with other reviewers that the art here seemed like a step back, with some characters being unrecognizable from amorphous blobs But I still am so happy to read some new Buffy and love where the story is going, so that elevates my rating here.

The elephant in the room is the art The issues in this volume were done by a different artist, and they re just awful I m not one of those who thinks that comic renditions of actors need to look like the people they re portraying, but the need to NOT look like strung out Japanese demons in human suits It was really distracting and took away any impact this story could have had.
not that it had much of one The weight of the situation here wasn t handled well at all They threw the characters into a life or death situation filled with magic and sacrifice and friendship, but none of came across as significant This is a reboot with old characters in a new context, and their relationships haven t coalesced enough to warrant this sort of storyline yet Pretty interesting, though I missed the tone of the first trade It did set up a pretty cool arc with Hellmouth business, so I m curious to see how the event will go D Wish they didn t change artists really ruined the vibe.
4 5AIEEEEEEEE Only complaint is the art seemed not as good as in volume one Oh, and no Cordy SMH So, definite bummer there Having said that, the storyline is still amazing and Buffy s bat costume was everything.
This was okay Buffy having to find a cure for Xander with Willow Sounds fun right But it s kind of just a average episode of Buffy The only truly interesting thing to happen is seeing Willow s past with Xander and also what someone is planning The rest is by the numbers and not all that great I also can t stand that everyone s eyes always look bugged out A 2.
5 out of 5.
The plot and how the characters reacted was also bad Guess I ll not be finishing the next one since it s the same illustrator.
