Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #2 Review

Will Buffy and the gang manage to stop these super vamps? Read on to find out.

The official description from Dark Horse:

The Scoobies are back—including li’l Giles! Revelations about a new kind of vampire menace and the blank Vampyr book have only just begun. Everyone has a job to do, and for Buffy, it’s treading the road of past relationships! Lucky girl . . .

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #2 variantBuffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 got off to a fantastic start with the introduction of super vamps and “New Rules” for the supernatural community shaking things up. The fight between Buffy’s gang and the super vamps continues straight from where #1 left off, though unfortunately it does end rather sudden and prematurely.

Christos Gage gives a fabulous continuation to the first issue as despite the sudden ending to the super vamp fight there’s not really much to dislike. The thing I loved most about the script had to be the way that each member of Buffy’s vast cast managed to get some time to shine as the issue never focused on one character in particular. The transition between these sequences was on the other hand not as smooth as I’d have hopped with it feeling a bit jumbled at times. Gage does however give great dialogue and character interaction with this more than making up for the awkward transitions.

Rebekah Isaacs produces yet more beautiful art with her fun style being truly astonishing. The sheer detail of her art along with the dynamic layouts really help cement the quality of her work with it giving a stunning look and feel to the series. She also produces intense action which is simply awe-inspiring, adding a lot of excitement to the opening of this issue. It is however the charm and overall emotion that she adds to the characters that I love the most with it giving a realistic feel to the story. To top things off we also get vibrant colours from Dan Jackson as well as a spectacular cover from Steve Morris.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 continues to be a fantastic continuation to the Buffyverse as although there’s still things to be worked on it’s proving to be a thoroughly enjoyable series. Highly recommended.

  • + Christos Gage continues to give a magical Buffy tale.
  • + Beautiful artwork from Rebekah Isaacs.
  • + Every character has their moment to shine.
  • - Fight ends pretty suddenly.
