Review

Buffy and Willow fight the forces of darkness to find the soul tie and save Xander. Meanwhile, Giles learns of Druscilla’s masterplan and a potential apocalyptic crisis in Sunnydale. Just another day when you live on the Hellmouth

The events in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6 set a far larger plan into motion. Between battles with giant beetles and friendly banter, Jordie Bellaire crafts an issue with subtle intensity. Bellaire uses Xander’s condition as a pulse for the issue, increasing the beat in each panel. This keeps the issue moving, though there is minimal action. Instead this issue lays the ground work for another exciting story arc. 

David Lopez and Raul Angulo’s art remains consistent, as they further develop the world of Sunnydale. There’s a bit of levity in the art, particularly the colors, which balances out the more serious parts of the script. And let’s be honest, the purple beetle guts where a nice touch this issue.

Bottom Line

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6 sets the stage for another exciting issue. Jordie Bellaire continues crafting an exceptional story.
