Beautiful art in this fantastic issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Nine #12 however, short review as I don’t want to give away any of the killer humor, fights, or spoilers.
First off, amazing cover from Phil Noto. This issue was a hilarious action-packed romp with hell beasties, demons, and social networking. Kennedy and Buffy are equally charming and witty as they help a young Zuckerberg-esque software developer survive the murderous intents of old time demonic trifecta favorite, Wolfram & Hart.
Like with Angel & Faith’s current arc this arc seems along the same vein as the Angel TV series and fans of the television show are sure to enjoy it.
Psychology steps back into play as Buffy finds herself relating in an unforeseen way to their hunted client and the ending definitely leaves the readers hungry for #13! Also, very interesting use of the mythos. I think the writing staff are having a lot of fun advancing the idea of a world without magic. -N
