Buffy the Vampire Slayer
S01, I01

"Welcome Back to the Hellmouth"

Writer: Jordie Bellaire, Art: Dan Mora & Raúl Angulo, Letters: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Kevin Wada

Blurb - sorta: Into every generation a Slayer is born; a chosen one. They alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number.

They are the Slayer.

My Blurb: "So, here we are..," Dark Willow

I read this a week ago, and then read it again a few days ago. I wanted to be sure that I was ready to fairly review the issue as its own thing, rather than constantly be focused on compare-and-contrast with 'my' buffy. But, inevitably, there are to be comparisons in this first issue -- the very title is almost challenging you to do so.

Despite this, I'm going to do what I can to leave Buffy as she was in the past and focus on 2019's Buffy. There will be a fair amount of commentary about each character, though, because they're here but in slightly altered roles in the new, not-cratered Sunnydale.

Buffy's first meet with Xan and Willow.Collapse )
