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.
