This is the second time in a few issues that Buffy is handed a cushy cushion to land on, but she decides to decline all offers of personal comfort and recompense because they're all too easy. What's wrong with this woman? Getting all super-powery got you all twisted in your ethics?

For a soap opera, it's still pretty classic. ( )

Another Buffy comic. The first 3-part story, about Tincan, is good. I enjoyed the inter-dimensional chat service, and the return of Wolfram & Hart. Koh isn't doing it for me, however. The second 2-part story, about Billy the Vampire Slayer, slightly missed the mark for me. It felt a little too simplistic or trite, I guess. ( )

From Goodreads:
In a bold move to give disenfranchised Slayers a meaningful societal role (with pay), Kennedy recruits Buffy to act as bodyguard for high-profile clientele. But unlike the other recruits, Buffy struggles to abandon her Slaying instincts and looks for demony threats where none lie (much to Kennedy's dismay). So it's only natural that her first job is to protect a tech mogul who just so happens to be running from demon assassins! Collects Buffy Season 9 #11–#15.

This issue has two stories, Guarded and Billy the Vampire Slayer. In Guarded, Kennedy has gotten some the slayers jobs as bodyguards. I’d take a slayer bodyguard. They’re strong and fast, so as long as they know what the hell they’re doing I think that’s a great job for them now that magic is gone. Plus, it pays really well. The problem with Buffy is that she’s been a slayer for so long she can’t just let the instinct go. It’s hard for her to adjust. I was really hoping Eldre Koh would be a great addition to the Scoobies. I’m disappointed. Also, I like that the police are taking the zompires seriously. I like the way that development is heading.

Billy the Vampire Slayer is an interesting addition to Buffy’s world. I look forward to seeing where he and Devon are heading and if they stick around. And are they more people out there like Billy? Inquiring minds want to know.

As always, I love the artwork. Though that guy at the end of Billy’s story? Who the hell is that?! I have no clue. And that’s frustrating. ( )

The Good: I've always liked Kennedy (which is a major sin in the Buffy loving world) and really enjoyed seeing her in the forefront of this volume. Kennedy is making the world work for her, something we always knew she's excel at. Buffy is floundering (as always). So Buffy goes to work for Kennedy. I loved seeing Buffy attempt a normal job that works with her slayer abilities. I loved seeing her struggle with no longer being the Chosen "One" and now being just another slayer in a world chock full of them, and not being the best at dealing with day to day issues.

The Bad: Billy the vampire slayer. Yay for including more gay characters. Boo for making a weird situation out of it. There are men who slay vampires, but they aren't slayers. I appreciate what they're trying to do here, but calling him a slayer, just because he's attracted to dudes is ridiculous. Men don't have the powers bestowed upon a slayer. Billy doesn't have the power either, because sexuality doesn't define gender. Slayers are women. Kennedy is a lesbian and that didn't take away her slayer abilities. It has nothing to do with who you love and you can't just go around calling every person a slayer when they clearly haven't been mystically called. ( )

As many of you lovely readers know, I do love my graphic novels. I review them all the time, and they are a constant staple in my life. What you may not know, however, is that the very first graphic novel I ever read was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was the omnibus Vol. 1 of Buffy—soon after I began the Season 8 BtVS graphic novels and was addicted. I loved the show, and all the gorgeous graphics and banter between characters I knew so well. It didn't take long for me to expand into other graphic novels and ..the rest is history!

So it's been awhile since I have read Buffy…I haven't read much of Season 9 and I know I have Season 10 to catch up to lol. I got this copy like a year ago and just wasn't in the mood for Buffy I feel like this season has been kind of "meh" aside from the magnificent Willow One Shot I read last year. That was superb. And, talking to others I realized I wasn't the only one who was actually more impressed with the Angel Faith Season vs. Buffy S9.

What I did like in this: The last half. It contained a good taste of "Billy the Vampire Slayer".. The first male slayer who is gay and amazing and his watcher is gay too. He's kick ass and basically isn't officially "called" but was called to action when the zombie vampires came to his town. I really felt like it was refreshing…I just felt like this series needed some new characters. I hope we see more of Billy the Vampire Slayer. That was why I gave this 3 stars…otherwise I would've given it 2, which is crazy! I mean, I never thought I'd give Buffy such a low rating, sorry Buffs. It's just that this was kind of a ehhhh not that great for me.

Kennedy was annoying. And bitchy..imho at least. Buffy was okay, not as much sass and I like her to have. Maybe that's just the way she's going to be now? oh please no, let's hope that's not true. I'm going to continue reading this series, but I don't have the next one and am not exactly running to buy it. To be honest with you, I think my money might be better spent buying Vol. 2 of the Angel Faith season that I left off on.

If you're reading this series and not yet up to this, just know that it isn't the best. BUT I heard from many reliable sources that it does get better starting in the next volume and for sure in Volume 5 things pick up. I'll let you know if I think that's accurate or not, but it may be awhile. Until then I'm going to read the other (few) random graphic novels I have on my bookshelf. ( )
