COMIC REVIEW: Buffy Season 9 #1

Buffy returns in the new season but is she still really the Buffy we all know and love?

Buffy Season 9 #1

Script: Joss Whedon
Pencils: Geroges Jeanty
Inks: Dexter Vines
Colours: Michelle Madsen

After the events at the end of season 8 everything has changed in the Buffyverse. In this first “episode” we catch up with Buffy who is now a waitress in San Francisco and wakes up with a hangover from the previous nights housewarming party to end all house warming parties. We are treated by visits from all the supporting cast and slowly Buffy has to try and remember what happened.

Being a huge fane of the previous season I was looking forward to this but I was not to happy about the way Buffy was written. Yes I get she is trying to be normal but did she really turn stupid as well. Maybe we can blame it on the alcohol right?

The art is good and the other characters are fleshed out well with the plot ticking over nicely but it was the last page that really brought a smile to my face and was pure Joss Whedon.

Overall a steady start to a new season but let’s hope it gets back to the Buffy we all know and love PLEASE.

GS Rating 3/5
