Just as fantastic as the series!
Training the new slayers for a fight that's longer and more eventful than the epic big bad battle season seven kissed viewers goodbye with, Buffy still has issues, and still has a ton of problems, including; Andrew, Willow's sometimes tenuous hold on her personal darkness, Dawn's feelings of uselessness and need for attention, Xander's everlasting support that might just be more than friendly and a cadre of teen girls to wrangle, train and keep alive.
On a part-training mission, Buffy and some of her trainees interrupt a demon ritual and discover the human prey all have the same strange symbol carved into their chest. More than just a casual encounter, the crew get to work trying to unravel the larger plot only to be distracted by a series of villains, who like good antagonists, never seem to go away completely. So between high school rivals, still bent on revenge, the military declaring Buffy's operation a terrorist sect, giant sized little sisters and a mass zombie attack The Long Way Home doesn't skip a beat, thrusting beloved characters right back where fans love to see them, with the same humor and mix of horror and fantasy that Buffy is famous for.
There couldn't be a better continuation of the Buffy-verse and with such a die-hard audience we can hope this new, more affordable, and in some ways more flexible, series will continue for a long time to come.

I LOVED the show, but as i opened this continuation i found myself going, 'Oh why Joss, oh why?'. This turned into a sci-fi secret agent comic with cheesey humor that didn't mix with the clever popculture refferences i was used to from the show. One thing was Biffy was wielding guns that looked straight out of the X-men comics that were set in the future, i am a comic reader and realize that this is a theme in comics, but it just doesn't belong in Buffy.
