    Well, I finished them. Damn volume cliffhangers kept me going, even after it just went from bad to worse. My favorite was Willow’s spin-off volume. Once the multiverses got integrated though...

    The first volume or two were decent, but it went downhill around the Hellmouth crossover and never recovered. The last handful of volumes have been terrible. And this one is just as bad but then also suddenly ends because the series was finally put out of its misery.

    so this is the final trade paperback in this "season". the big bad was defeated, although of course there are some unresolved issues - silas' blood dripping on the seal to the hellmouth, mayor wilkins and what he's up to. I would have also appreciated a more specific farewell to the slayers from other dimensions in the multiverse who came through to the world without shrimp to fight silas - specifically some sort of goodbye scene, maybe even seeing them back in their worlds with a thought about so this is the final trade paperback in this "season". the big bad was defeated, although of course there are some unresolved issues - silas' blood dripping on the seal to the hellmouth, mayor wilkins and what he's up to.

I didn't really enjoy it on the tv show, where it served more of a purpose. now as an actual enemy they are just annoying) and then there was silas. I feel like things were a bit rushed. more explanation would have been nice. the whole epilogue thing - it was cute and all but I didn't really get the magical theory behind what happened. that seems sloppy. oh, so the mayor puts silas' head in a dragon skull and creates a time loop? ok. what happened to angel? I don't even remember. spike? I saw a multiverse spike, but that was it. I feel like we needed a lot more processing after the events, where the characters sit around in the library or buffy's house or giles' house or wherever and talk things through and explicate some of what happened a little better. willow, how are you dealing with xander's soul being ripped from you? for that matter, why did silas, in the midst of battle, suddenly go on this little housekeeping venture where he was like, oh, ethan, that soul doesn't belong in that body. oh, willow, you've got a little foreign soul piece there. I mean, maybe I just need a nerdy friend to talk about it with. or maybe I need to read the entire series over again and see if I can pick up some more things this time. to be honest, comics are not the easiest for me to read. I do a lot better at understanding poetry. and one thing that does not help is the constant artist swapping. I know comic book artists in some of the earlier buffy comics have had to sort of audition by drawing all the characters to see if they are close to the actual human actors from the tv show. and I do appreciate that we're in a whole new era of buffy now (is the physical tv reboot still happening?) and so maybe it's time to veer away from that pegging the characters to the actors who played them on tv and instead say ok, willow is a slender red haired witch and take some liberties with her actual features. but the fact remains that some artists are waaaaaaaaaaay better at making the characters look - not only like the actors from the show, but DIFFERENTIATED from each other. how many times did I have to be like, is that anya? or cordelia? or buffy? the characters should be recognizable at least within the comic itself. this issue became very apparent when a character from the tv show returned in this volume. I could tell by the way there was a conversation going on between two people but only one was shown that the reveal of the other was supposed to be a surprise, and so I guessed who it was - but that's what it was, a guess. when I saw the character I was like, ok, that could be them, I guess. and then later they had a text from the returning character show up on a phone, with their name. why did they have to do that? because their reveal didn't look enough like the character from the tv show for the reader to be sure. come on. you can also see this really clearly on the cover gallery at the back of the trade paperback, that shows some main and variant covers from the single issues. depending on the artist's style, the characters can end up looking super anime. everyone has the same size boobs, which always annoys me. there's one 25th anniversary cover with a plethora of characters from the series, in a more caricaturey style. dawn and tara look alike. some people I'm just like welp, I don't know who that is. some people I'm unsure of. I don't know, I guess some people are just harder to draw or whatever. I guess this is something about comic book production I don't understand - maybe it's just customary to have lots of different artists on your series because some people will buy something they usually wouldn't because of the artist? or artists just can't commit to a whole series because they're not getting paid enough to not take other jobs? but you know, if I ran the world, the person who was a good all around comic artist - good at action scenes, good at creating interesting panel compositions - and was the best at drawing the characters so that the reader could immediately recognize them - would get the job and draw the whole series so it was consistent.

    I think "At least it's over" is probably the nicest thing I can say about this. This final volume is plagued with the same issues as the last three or four - not enough plot to keep the story going, good ideas executed poorly, and artwork that doesn't do the story justice. I'm so disappointed with how this all turned out. The ideas are so good, but it fumbles at every turn, not doing the multitude of characters any favours, and that's even before you start including all the multiversal Buffys.

I just...god, the potential was there. This could have been a Buffy story for the ages. Instead, it's just a blip that will hopefully be forgotten. The opening storylines of this series had their issues, but at least they were coherent and character based, which is the complete opposite of what this is. It's still readable, barely, but you won't enjoy it while you do. Thankfully, Boom! seem to have recovered quickly, because the new Vampire Slayer series that's a couple of issues in already seems to be a marked improvement on this (although I guess that's not too difficult given all I've said).
