My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So I read the first Volume of season 8 last month and didn’t really think much of it. I think I didn’t really connect with the story as much because I’m so used to watching Buffy on a screen. I have also found that it usually takes me reading more than one Volume of a comic series for me to get into it (I had the same with Saga). So I figured I would give this one a go and see what I thought!
– So let’s begin: I enjoyed this Volume SO much more than the first. I wouldn’t say I’m completely drawn in yet but I know I definitely want to continue reading now that I have enjoyed this one. So this Volume continues on where the last one left off – a few of my questions were answered and I feel like I understand what is going on a lot more than I did with Volume 1!
– Faith makes an appearance in this Volume – I would note that Faith was one of my least favourite characters in the TV show but I actually found her to be quite likable in the comic book (how weird is that?!).
– Most of this Volume was based around Faith’s attempt to take down a rogue slayer and the trouble that lands her in with Buffy come the end. It was really rather enjoyable!
– I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is feeling unsure after reading Volume 1, I feel a lot better towards the comic books now that I have got a bit more of the story. Really looking forward to continuing the season and sharing my thoughts with you.
