    This was put together awfully. This is like the worst of a Marvel or DC event. What's in this book is all very generic. It's Buffy and Angel walking through the Hellmouth for 4 issues before the Scooby gang shows up to save the day. Eleonara Carlini's art is good. It's very anime influenced. But in the last issue, once a bunch of characters show up, I couldn't tell them apart. I had no idea what happened in that final battle or who was who.

But in the last issue, once a bunch of characters show up, I couldn't tell them apart. I had no idea what happened in that final battle or who was who. If you want to know how to read this, read Buffy Vol. 3 and Angel Vol. 2 first to see what's going on with the side characters while Buffy and Angel are in the Hellmouth. I'm not a fan of that epilogue either. This new Buffyverse has been around for a year and now they are establishing a multiverse? How about establishing the existing universe first. It's like Bellaire is already bored. Bellaire just keeps bringing the worst of Marvel and DC to this series. It's a real shame. The Buffy reboot started off so strong and Bellaire writes really snappy dialogue.

    Pretty much everything I said in my review of the corresponding Buffy volume applies here, as well. A terribly planned and structured nightmare of a crossover event that brings everything you hate about Marvel and DC crossovers to a smaller, much less profitable property. The story was dull and devoid of any charm you'd typically associate with Buffy, opting instead for generic bad guys doing generic evil things and giving generic bad guy speeches. Why it had to be this way, I'll never know, and Pretty much everything I said in my review of the corresponding Buffy volume applies here, as well.

    2.5 Buffy and Angel goes down during Halloween party to Hell. She wants to stop what is happening but without any plan nor research and not even her friends or Watcher knows where is her. Good work, Buffy! Angel is an unknown, but in brief relies in him. Yep. There found demons and alike. She wants to stop Dursilla, but... well. In all, I'm not impressed by this work. Nor the art. 2.5 Buffy and Angel goes down during Halloween party to Hell.

The story of the main series and this spinoff has been torn into messy pieces by going in a hundred directions at once, leaving interesting developments unfinished, introducing new characters left and right and leaving all characters underdeveloped as a result. The first four issues of this series and collection achieved very little as they reduced Drusilla to a sidelined minion and introduced an unoriginal main villain in the form of the Hellmother, who took up a lot of space. These issues did however manage to establish a somewhat interesting relationship between Buffy and Angel. The very last issue managed to show a glimpse of potential for the series moving forward with a cool (and insane Cordelia) and an amazing Anya, but it is too late, and establishing a multiverse seems over-ambitious for a series that has not yet accomplished the basic development of its core characters. This is the end of the road for me with this series for now. I may catch a legacy edition or two some ways down the road, if things get better.

    **1.5 stars Yikes. That was a fucking mess. It's been a long time since I've been this disappointed in a comic, honestly. But what was I expecting? This crossover happened so quickly with barely any build up for the Buffy and Angel titles. The plot is boring and sometimes things just happen that don't make sense. I didn't enjoy Buffy and Angel's interactions - no chemistry there at all. I hate ragging on art, but I really couldn't stand the art here, either.

    Another mediocre addition to the new Buffy continuity, but the ending was surprisingly fairly solid. 3.4/5 stars.

    I read this in literally 15 minutes, it’s a quick and easy read and it’s setting the foundation for the other graphic novels within the series. I enjoyed the short time I read it. I don’t feel like it’s fair to even give this a rating just because it was so short and it was just setting the plot up for the rest of the series, but I feel 3 stars is fair for what I got.

    This was a chaotic event that made me feel bitterness about the fact that I had to buy extra issues to follow the series. I did like the art style much more than Lopez's work for BTVS -- he's undeniably talented, but it's absolutely the wrong tone and look for the series. The text and the art fit much better together here. However, the story is all over the place, and the ending is sudden and neat in a really frustrating way.

    Read it out of order since I didn't know it existed, and it still doesn't make any sense. Plus, any story that just deus-ex's a gang of saviors into the third act without any establishment within the work itself is a piece of shit. So this is a piece of shit.

    For those of you who are Superfans of my reviews (all of you), you'll remember that I said if this crossover event didn't absolutely kill, I'd give up on the Buffy and Angel reboots altogether. Well it didn't absolutely kill. But I kinda liked it I guess? I dunno, at least I knew what was going on the whole time. But honestly, the climax just highlighted how much of a mess the series became, just trying to do way too much all at once. The art was a fair spot better, though, so thank you Eleonora C For those of you who are Superfans of my reviews (all of you), you'll remember that I said if this crossover event didn't absolutely kill, I'd give up on the Buffy and Angel reboots altogether.

If this were an event in the middle of a strong series, I'd forgive it as a weak episode with an underdeveloped villain but continue following the series. But as an event in the middle of a weak series, I'm inclined to praise it as the promise of something better... and continue following the series. Maybe some new writing talent would reinvigorate things. Not where where this has gone since the crossover. I guess I'm still on board.

    More of a 3.5, but we're in a rounding up mood today. Hellmouth is ambitious, especially at this early juncture for both Buffy and Angel's new Boom! series. It tries to be both intensely personal (for Buffy and Angel), and much more wide-reaching in terms of impact, but it only really manages the first one. The villain(s) of the piece feel a bit flat; without the built-up relationships between them, Drusilla is relegated to ranting, while the Hellmother is a generic monster without much character More of a 3.5, but we're in a rounding up mood today. Hellmouth is ambitious, especially at this early juncture for both Buffy and Angel's new Boom! series. It tries to be both intensely personal (for Buffy and Angel), and much more wide-reaching in terms of impact, but it only really manages the first one. The villain(s) of the piece feel a bit flat; without the built-up relationships between them, Drusilla is relegated to ranting, while the Hellmother is a generic monster without much character to her. It makes the conflict feel arbitrary, when Buffy and Angel's villains have always been well-rooted in the characters themselves. The first meeting between Buffy and Angel goes about as well as can be expected. While both try to keep secrets from the other and inevitably fail, there's definitely the sense of unfinished business here. Again, their relationship is very different to what we've come to expect (although it's far better than that whole Twilight debacle back in Buffy Season 8), so it can take you off-guard for a second, but I'm intrigued to have the pair reunite again in the future. The art is predominately by Eleanora Carlini, whose major Boom! work has only included some Power Rangers before this, so it's a nice step-up for her. Her work is clean, although the characters can sometimes feel pasted onto the backgrounds, like they're on two entirely different layers. Think those Scooby Doo episodes where the clues were so obvious because they were drawn entirely differently. It's not a major problem, just something that I remember sticking out in my mind, especially inside the Hellmouth itself. Hellmouth shoots for the moon and kind of crash lands among the stars. It's not perfectly executed, but it's not bad either. Hopefully it's a blueprint for future events, and everyone involved can learn what worked, and what didn't, before the characters meet again.

    The banter between Buffy and Angel wasn't half bad; this new iteration of their relationship certainly offers something new to build off of, and that's exciting. That being said, with each character headlining their own series, the likelihood of their romance becoming integral in any long-lasting or meaningful way seems awfully low. The plot of this was... okay. It became less interesting as it went on, and the big finale was less audacious and much shorter than I'd hoped for.

The plot of this was... okay. It became less interesting as it went on, and the big finale was less audacious and much shorter than I'd hoped for. The art here was generally pretty good, but it doesn't have the uncanny realism of the first volume of Buffy, or the style of Angel. All in all, at the end of the Hellmouth crossover, Angel was by far my favorite to read, then the Hellmouth issues themselves, with Buffy a distant third. After finishing this initial run of Boom's Buffyverse, I'm not sure I'm going to keep reading.

    This works best when read with the third collected volume of the Boom Buffy comics series. The problem with the two volumes is that they don’t work as stand alone volumes. Also the art is a bit of a mess. At times the characters look a bit generic so it’s hard to tell who is who. I still think that the writers are trying to do too much way too fast with the assumption that the readers are familiar with the Buffyverse. I will continue with the series for now.

    After part 1 but before part 5 you need to read volume 3 of buffy. The lack of information about reading order caused problems with this Hell Mouth story because occasionally things made no sense and you need to read a Buffy or Angel comic for the background and bits of Buffy don't make sense without this but other parts are spoilers if you read it in the wrong order. The actual story was ok if you worked out how to read it in order. Occasionally the art made it hard to know who a character was. After part 1 but before part 5 you need to read volume 3 of buffy.

    Scattered and disjointed. This was supposed to shake the Buffyverse up and galvanize concepts and characters but it was just a mess. Not sure if it was the writing or the art but there were some definite storytelling glitches throughout. It never quite finds its tone. It seems too short and too long, simultaneously. Not enough deep-in-the-weeds story to sink your teeth into yet five issues seemed like a reading marathon. Very much a misfire.

    I liked the Hellmouth event. Maybe it's because I'm relatively new to comic books and multiverses, but I liked the different story. The artwork was ok. I enjoyed the story, with characters popping in and out. I definitely recommend following the recommended order, intermingling the Hellmouth issues, the Buffy issues, and the Angel issues.

I really liked the art and some of the fun moments in this, specifically the actual Buffy and Angel interactions (both with each other and the other characters). I wasn't the biggest fan of the actual plot like the lake and I thought the ending was disappointingly morose for the end of the first big arc. Hellmother Angel was cool though. 2.5/5.

    This one was a tad bit confusing. Where did the second Buffy come from? Was she a hallucination? Is Drusilla dead now? I liked the Buffy and Angel parts, though I prefer the delayed development of the original TV series.

    Meh. Angel is just there--no meet cute at all. What little story there is drifts in and out of the rather pointless and too numerous action panels. Drucilla just doesn't do it for me as any kind of Big Bad. Most of all I miss Whedon's clever play with language. Meh. Angel is just there--no meet cute at all.

    I have to say that I did feel a bit confused as to why Buffy is acting the way she does like no plan going in solo and yeah a guy I don't know but heck yeah I'll need to count on him. While I was excited about Drusilla it was a bit lackluster. Overall I will continue just to see what else happens.

    I lost track of this one before Christmas but so glad I found it again. Admittedly I’m old and set in my Buffy ways, it’s hard to wrap my head around alternate storylines. I love anything Buffy and Angel though so ready to do the mental gymnastics and enjoy the show!
