Ok let’s start of by saying I really enjoyed reading this issue. The writing felt spot on. Teeny Giles is really funny with his frustrations of youth. Buffy feels very humane and really bonds with her sister who is feeling anything but herself. Spike has some rather funny Spike moments too. Xander is great as Dracula’s butt monkey. Reading this issue almost felt like having the TV series back..almost. I guess this could be thanks to having Nicholas Brendon on the writing team. Whatever it is, it is working very well! So yes Dracula has figured out that whatever he writes in the Vampyr book comes true. Well of sorts, book is a bit tricksy so you gotta be specific. When the lithe and sexy vampire (Xanders words) tries to become the most powerful of or vampires he accidentally turns himself into the first ever Vampire old one Maloker. The big nasty that nearly killed Buffy in the deep well at the end of Season 9. Oops not so good.
Meanwhile we finally find out what is eating Dawn. Her factory post-key settings seems to have kicked in and she is feeling all season 5 all over again. Xander may love her, but she only has a school girls crush on him and feels a bit overwhelmed with his emotions. She is also reliving her mums death all over again (Mum…mum..mummy? ). So she is confused. Great great issue, I really hope it keeps on keeping in like this, as it is very enjoyable so far!
