3.0 out of 5 stars Half good half rubbish story
The first story with Kennedy and buffy I liked but the new character introduced did nothing for me. I was upset when there was another comic in the graphic novel about this character as he was one who I simply didnt care whether he lived or died.
I'm a die hard buffy fan though so I like to see what the buffy verse has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Billy the Vampire-Slayer, 28 May 2014

This review is from: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 Volume 3: Guarded (Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse Numbered)) (Paperback)
The stories running through Dark Horse Comics' Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 issues #11-15 are collected as Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 Volume 3: Guarded (Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse Numbered)). This continues the `back to the roots' feel of this season's stories, and there are two included in this volume, though they all flow into one-another with sub-plots and ongoing themes, they are separate adventures. The scripting and artwork is excellent, and the characters look like their TV personalities (those that had them), and the dialogue is character-perfect.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issues #11-13: `Guarded' sees Buffy getting a job as a bodyguard, working for Kennedy, who has converted the excess Slayer population into a corporate security agency. Buffy doesn't do well on her aptitude test, as she can't get over her feeling that the demon in the bellboy uniform can't just be a bellboy, while the real assassin in the hotel maid - which even I spotted! (Though, admittedly I have no Slayer instincts that I have to overcome.) Fortunately, her first paying job is to protect the CEO of the company that invented/runs a certain social media site, which happens to be based on demon-technology originally supplied by Wolfram & Hart, and which now allows them to communicate with their agents on Earth as it is not a magic-based system. The CEO wants to shut it down, W&H want him dead before he can destroy the servers, and there is a many-tentacled demon infesting the server farm. Buffy calls in a certain Nitobe demon that owes her a debt of honour - Koh - to help. However, as Wolfram & Hart know, Nitobe debts are more of a convention than a hard and fast rule...

Issue #14 & #15 introduces Billy the Vampire Slayer, a troubled High School student who finds that he has abilities beyond those of `normal' High School students, and runs off to join the circus...

This is an excellent set of stories, which deal with several plot-threads while opening up several more (not to mention the odd `can-of-worms') for future resolution.

This review is from: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 Volume 3: Guarded (Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse Numbered)) (Paperback)
i am forgiving for buffy comics and normally love the risks they take to move onto more exciting encounters but this one felt like an intermission... a forgetterble one. Buffy constantly being reminded that shes `old news` and not fitting in isnt where youd think she would end up by season 9... seriously i liked buffy when there were the new monsters every week to deal with... but no they even made the monsters dull by making them have human issues... very funny guys... we all like a joke but bring back the horror element i loved in the first few seasons! (lucky 19) (the guy who fed on sick kids) (the gentlemen!!!!) afdjkjhgffhhh

I really enjoyed this and look forward to Volume 4 being released in October!! If you love Buffy then stick with the comics. They're up and down in places, but overall a great read.
