    One thought on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Welcome to the Team”

    1. Season 9's reading a lot better than season 8 did. Shit just went weird in 8, it was as if they had a moment where everybody sat around a table and said something like "hey, we're not on TV, we don't have to worry about a specialFX budget anymore, let's just got crazy!" Only somebody forgot that it would be a good idea to have a solid story in place.

    2. Into it! As much as I don't really like Xander, this plotline about Dawn and him adjusting to a non-magical life and dealing with being the one always watching but never acting is drawing me in. Plus, Buffy's roomie is a secret Slayer! Illyria shows up! Willow's back! And Severin is an interesting villain.

    3. The Good: Xander makes you care about Dawn. That's what we remaining skeptical fans have needed since the moment Dawn appeared in the series. A reason to care about her. She's grown up some, but she's still, at heart, the annoying little sister we all wish had never been introduced. Her relationship with Xander is the only thing that makes her likable, but at least we have that now. Xander is still full of his flaws, the one character that never evolves past his episode, always reverting back to [...]

    4. Review for Season 9 of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith, and Spike.Last year, I read the craziness that was Buffy: The Vampire Slayer Season Eight. The story got a wee bit out of control and got a bit too epic. The story also suffered from wanting to follow about fifteen characters. Luckily, Joss Whedon learned from his mistakes.My favorite change to Season Nine was that several characters received their own books. Buffy had five books, Angel and Faith had five books, and Spike and W [...]

    5. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellSo after the oddness of the last volume, a few things began to make a little more sense in this one. For one, I wish I had paid more attention to the Billy the Vampire Slayer as he is now officially a member of Buffy's slaying brigade. But in truth, I paid enough attention so that I wasn't completely lost when I picked up this book, so that's all that matters, right?In this volume, Buffy is summoned away from a zompire battle by a mystical counci [...]

    6. 4.5*Book source ~ LibraryFrom :Buffy is unwillingly recruited by the demon Illyria and a mystical council to take down the Siphon—for good. He is on the loose again, and a danger to all remnants of magic! Meanwhile, back home the loss of magic has begun to affect those closest to Buffy . . . Collect issues #16-#20 of Season 9.I’ve been waiting forever and a day for this volume to show up at the library. I’ve read the rest of Season 9, so this one fills in the gap of what’s going on with [...]

    7. In really short: Horrible art, amazing story!First, the bad part: the drawings were such a let down. AWFUL! Faces are deformed, Buffy is unrecognizable, nobody seems to be able to draw properly Dawn, etc. Hell, you know there is an issue when you can't be sure whether a character is Billy, the male slayer, or Anaheed, Buffy's roomate who is in fact a woman.On the story side though, it is great. From the cover, we could expect a comeback from Illyria and such a comeback is a pleasure. The cast of [...]

    8. When I heard Illyria was going to be in Buffy, I'll admit it, I let out a fangirl squeal. And this volume of Season 9 did not disappoint. After a somewhat disjointed Season 8, Season 9 has been all solid, but Welcome to the Team is by far my favorite so far. Not only does it expand upon the themes of Season 9 itself, but the implications that it leaves you with for what's coming are pretty staggering.

    9. What I'm enjoying most about his season is how invested I still feel for these characters. Granted, see them on the TV screen would be much more satisfying, but the voices and tone are still in line with the layered storytelling I grew up with.Plus, there's the added bonus of having crossovers that would be almost logistically impossible back in the TV days. Illyria from "Angel" is added to the make-shift team this time around to stop Severin from turning back time to save his girlfriend from be [...]

    10. One thing I'm enjoying about this season is how the writers are making sure the "no more magic" thing is consistent and (view spoiler)[ a dying Dawn(hide spoiler)] fits into that narrative quite well.On the other hand, Xander gonna' Xand. I'm disappointed that underneath all the added international adventures, Xander really hasn't changed. Once again, he's hung up on being the hero instead of the sidekick. Perhaps the new close-to-home danger is the beginning of an arc for Xander to finally stop [...]

    11. Yeah, I'm ending this here. I don't care for the plot or the characters or for what's going to happen anymore. I'll stick with the TV show.

    12. Whoops! in my review of the previous trade, I said the Illrya (Still probably not spelling that right) makes an appearance. That is in THIS trade. In this trade we also see Dawn start to fade away, which is great driving force behind the action in this trade and the one that follows it. I should point out, that I don't really care for the Zompires or the side story, featuring the first Male slayer. It was only in this trade, when we learn what Buffy and crew have to do, to save Dawn, that the bo [...]

    13. It's only when I went back and looked at the start that I realised how well this edition was framed. As an ongoing theme to this season, slayer Doffler is trying to beef herself up great enough to take on and defeat Buffy -- something that she came close to achieving in the earlier season, and thankfully hadn't given up on yet.I'm very satisfied with the continuity of this season so far. I get the feeling that everything that happens is for a reason. As for example, Dawn's illness which is shown [...]

    14. It really is back to basics with this installment of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Buffy is no longer attached to the business operation that Kennedy has created (which I was not a fan of, mostly because I hate Kennedy) and is back on the streets doing what she does best, fight vampires (technically zompires) and trying to save the world.This is the Buffy I've been missing, and I'm so glad to have her back. Even though the gang is not back together by the end of this volume it would seem that things [...]

    15. Buffy Season 9 rolls on in this latest volume. After having been able to put together a solid Scoobie crew of stand-ins - including Officer Dowling and Billy the Vampire Slayer - Buffy is getting back to her slaying roots. However, the energy-draining Siphon is putting a strain on the demon world, causing the remaining high council to pluck the Slayer for a new fight. Alongside former Team Angel member Illyria and her demon ally Koh, Buffy's new team must try to end the Siphon's drain on all thi [...]

    16. BOOM! ILLYRIA! That's most of what I have to say. It covers a lot, but I do like Buffy getting a higher powered team-up.I'm not loving Billy. I wish I could say more, but that's the extent of my feelings. Well, it feels like a Politically correct tag on, and a sop to the fact that everyone else is leaving her. It's not an equal power relationship and not the family support she has had from her true family. The pressure of Matriarch-hood is something I feel Buffyu could use some respite from. The [...]

    17. Buffy is back!When I was first reading talk about season 9 it was basically that they were going to step away from the strange and over the top that was season 8. The past few volumes have done that, but at the same time Buffy wasn't all in it. She was coping with the magical fallout of season 8 in a very self centered passive kinda way. Things are going to change and this is the volume where Buffy finally decides to wake up and see the wrong. I'm not going to go into great detail because I don' [...]

    18. Finally, Buffy comes to terms with destroying the Seed! And it only took 4 volumes to get there. Cause it wasn't enough that Willow is magic-less, or that demons are hunting her down for student loan payments, or that vampires are now zompires, no, she could always just shrug those off, because the consequences never really affected her. But now, oh now! Now it's hitting home. I guess it's good that she's consistent, because I think she was starting to bother everyone by season 6 anyway, not rea [...]

    19. The light at the end of the tunnel, this was really not that bad, room is left, but no that bad at all.The Buffy comics mostly offered true fans of the show (aka Me) a new kind of hell with very offbeat humor, questionable character moments and ridiculous story lines. But this edition takes everything into a very pleasing direction, using the old mess that Buffy and Twilight created to build an actually interesting plot that manages to tell a good story while mixing it with character progress. T [...]

    20. I always love when conflict arises in the Buffyverse because it's only then that characters are tested and in turn, find out who they really are. Welcome to the Team continues where Guarded left off and I have to say things are not looking good for our beloved Scooby Gang. While some people return from their long journey's, others are leaving the Scooby Gang behind because they believe there's no other choice. This is a wonderful addition to season nine of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and honestly, [...]

    21. One of the great things about the Angel comics moving from IDM to Dark Horse, is that it is far easier for characters from one series to appear in the other, e.g. (in this case) Angel character Illyria pops up if the Buffyverse (*). Which should not be such a big thing, after all Angel is a spin-off from BtVS and thus they inhabit the same universe (and events in one series have impact in the other), but the politics of both series having different publishers often prevented such crossovers.(*) [...]

    22. daer.diry I want to have a sleep over at my frendshouse but my mom sied do you know hou to add I know how to thene I can gooooooo? YES YES YOU CAN miayy

    23. I've been previously critical of the Buffy comics continually going back to the well for reasons that come across more as fanservice than because they actually do anything for the storyline. Perhaps this is different because it actually does accomplish some stuff storywise that works, or maybe it's because Fred/Illyria was one of my favorite characters from Angel, but I really enjoyed where this one went, including the use of Dawn and the sort of legitimate, Whedonesque danger that everyone's in [...]

    24. Okay, so I haven't actually read this collected volume - because it's not been released yet - but I have read the individual comics that comprise the Welcome to the Team release. I'm pleased to report things continue their upward trend in this volume as new alliances are solidified and the occasional genuine surprise manages to creep in. It's still not as good as Buffy in comic form should be, but at least they're moving in the right direction - which is especially good given Season 10 has been [...]

    25. There's a lot going on in this book, but it very much focuses on getting back to the Buffy basics - the scooby gang (plus a new regular or two), and a big bad, with what should have been a slam dunk crossover with Illyria. There's a lot of story here, and a fair bit of classic Buffy angst, but it doesn't quite settle the way I'd hope, for some reason. A good read, but not a great one. Maybe part of it is that this doesn't offer much closure - it's very much a piece of a larger plot and the end p [...]

    26. 4 Platypires for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Welcome to the Team by Andrew Chambliss. Well this was a lot better than the last one. I liked the fact that more of the Scoobies made an appearance. That is always a positive. I am still trying to get used to Xander and Dawn being together. Still doesn't feel right even though its obvious they are in love with each other. The storyline in the issue was pretyy cool and interesting. The cliffhanger just made me want to read the next volume asap. As of ri [...]
