    Buffy's last stand! I bought this in its single comic book issues, but I've chosen this TPB edition to make a better overall review. This TPB edition collects "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer - Season 12 - The Reckoning" #1-4. Creative Team: Writers: Joss Wheddon & Ch...

    Okay, there?s too much to unpack here. Let?s talk about how this comic broke my heart in too many ways. Heartbreak #1: It's all over Buffy has been living in the Dark Horse comics for 11 years. That's four whole years more than the TV show got. It wasn't just a continuation of ...

    This was a sudden and rushed ending to the Buffy comics seasons, which the writers have been open about because of behind the scenes things, and it definitely reads that way. It also has the misfortune of following up some of the worst runs in the series history, Angel and Giles Season...

    Wow. Not the ending Dark Horse's Buffyverse needed or deserved. I agree with others that everything felt way too rushed. It seems like in his cockiness Whedon brought characters back and changed character relationships without rhyme or reason and slapped a completely lackluster plot on...

    Loved the official Buffy canon comics, but this felt wayyyy too rushed. It was great they addressed the flashback in Fray, but this battle was anything but epic. Illyria seriously could've beat a small army of second rate demons on her own, the same way she cleaned house with Wolfram...

    5 ? Nice to see how Buffy and the game have been doing. Sad that Buffy and Spike broke up again. Interesting that Dawn and Xander now have a baby. Hope that they will be able to stop Harth. ...

    Started a little slow, but by the halfway point I was hooked! This was a great conclusion to the comic series, although I?m also devastated there won?t be more!! I?m very much not a fan of the art style though- I found it really hard to connect to the characters because of it, bu...

    Es war absehbar, va wurde wir durch die Ereignisse in Staffel 10 & Staffel 11 ja schon schrittweise darauf vorbereitet. Das Ende der Buffy-Scooby-Gang scheint zum Greifen nahe. Im Gegensatz zur letzten Staffel treffen wir hier gleich in der ersten Ausgabe auf nahezu alle Wegbeg...

    It's all coming together! Giles is back to his old self, Buffy and Spike are finally over, sadly Angel and Illyria aren't... and Joss threw in a baby a la Angel season three... and of course Fray! ...

    So apparently Dark Horse has lost the rights to Whedon properties which doesn't really explain No Power in the Verse since that had a cliffhanger suggesting that they expected to write more, but it does explain this mess of a comic. I picked this comic up because it's the last one ...

    Blergh. Not the ending I wanted! The art... bleh most of the time. And did we really need to pull in literally every character that ever existed? I'd have much preferred like a Buffy/Willow/Xander/Giles old school resolution or something. Anyway.... meh. :( ...

    3.5 stars That felt like a definitive ending. I wonder if it really is. If so, The Reckoning was a good story to end with, even if some of the plot points bummed me out. A villain I never thought I?d see again showed up, and his goofy lines made me so happy. I felt a little lost b...

    Honestly, Buffy and the Scoobies deserve better. The post-television comic seasons have certainly had their ups and downs, but the last couple were pretty great. I don?t know what happened to Georges Jeanty?s art since he was last on the book, but something certainly did. I loved h...

    Read in comic book form. So happy with Season 12, especially after the Giles miniseries debaucle. Season 12 had everything I love about the Buffy comics: fun cameos, the gang all together again, a happy ending...? (Well, about as happy as it can get for now in the Buffyverse.) ...

    Really, that's how you end things Joss? ...

    Parádní zavr?ení v?eho, co se na nás v komiksovém Buffyverse za poslední dekádu (ano, Dark Horse do toho, alespo? co se ?ist? nových p?íb?h? tý?e, ?lápl poprvé u? v roce 2007) nahrnulo. Od prvních stránek jsem byl ze v?eho slu?n? nostalgický, nejen proto?e...

    I have become a big fan of George Jeanty's Buffy art, plus this had the Joss Whedon touch. Unlike some of the comic seasons, it also had a bit of closure to it. I loved seeing Fray again - I would've like more of her in this comic. I liked the twist actually. Time travel tempts the ...

    I've stood by the Dark Horse Buffy seasons up until this point. I watched as my beloved characters faced new and, often, improved big bads. Everything felt reasonably changed and altered from the TV series. Old scoobies and baddies returned, and new friends were introduced. The Angel &...

    At first, I thought that the plot was moving way too fast and too much was skipped in order to jam in the big ending arc, due to Dark Horse canceling all its comics, but the last issue gave me lots of feels and made it back to a four star story for me. They left it open for the possibi...

    Overall, the comics? finale was a bit like the comics themselves, a mixed bag. There?s a sense of being underwhelmed, because there?s just no match to the cinematic sense of hope and change ?Chosen? had, or even the dramatic heartbreak and sacrifice of ?The Gift?. But, t...

    This series deserved a better sendoff and probably would have gotten it had Christos Gage been left in charge of the story instead of Joss Whedon; had it been given more than four issues to wrap up; and had they kept Rebekah Isaacs in place as the artist instead of bringing back George...

    Well, unlike apparently everyone else on here, I had not realized this was the end. Boo! My thoughts: Yeah. This thing was suuuuper rushed. Fred. Seriously? What a bunch of jerks! Argh, the art is SO BAD sometimes! This ending just feels...lame. And not like Buffy much...

    Blergh. Not the ending I wanted! The art... bleh most of the time. And did we really need to pull in literally every character that ever existed? I'd have much preferred like a Buffy/Willow/Xander/Giles old school resolution or something. Anyway.... meh. :( ...

    3.5 stars That felt like a definitive ending. I wonder if it really is. If so, The Reckoning was a good story to end with, even if some of the plot points bummed me out. A villain I never thought I?d see again showed up, and his goofy lines made me so happy. I felt a little lost b...

    Honestly, Buffy and the Scoobies deserve better. The post-television comic seasons have certainly had their ups and downs, but the last couple were pretty great. I don?t know what happened to Georges Jeanty?s art since he was last on the book, but something certainly did. I loved h...

    Read in comic book form. So happy with Season 12, especially after the Giles miniseries debaucle. Season 12 had everything I love about the Buffy comics: fun cameos, the gang all together again, a happy ending...? (Well, about as happy as it can get for now in the Buffyverse.) ...

    I have become a big fan of George Jeanty's Buffy art, plus this had the Joss Whedon touch. Unlike some of the comic seasons, it also had a bit of closure to it. I loved seeing Fray again - I would've like more of her in this comic. I liked the twist actually. Time travel tempts the ...

    I've stood by the Dark Horse Buffy seasons up until this point. I watched as my beloved characters faced new and, often, improved big bads. Everything felt reasonably changed and altered from the TV series. Old scoobies and baddies returned, and new friends were introduced. The Angel &...

    At first, I thought that the plot was moving way too fast and too much was skipped in order to jam in the big ending arc, due to Dark Horse canceling all its comics, but the last issue gave me lots of feels and made it back to a four star story for me. They left it open for the possibi...

    Buffy's last stand! I bought this in its single comic book issues, but I've chosen this TPB edition to make a better overall review. This TPB edition collects "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer - Season 12 - The Reckoning" #1-4. Creative Team: Writers: Joss Wheddon & Ch...

    Okay, there?s too much to unpack here. Let?s talk about how this comic broke my heart in too many ways. Heartbreak #1: It's all over Buffy has been living in the Dark Horse comics for 11 years. That's four whole years more than the TV show got. It wasn't just a continuation of ...

    This was a sudden and rushed ending to the Buffy comics seasons, which the writers have been open about because of behind the scenes things, and it definitely reads that way. It also has the misfortune of following up some of the worst runs in the series history, Angel and Giles Season...

    Wow. Not the ending Dark Horse's Buffyverse needed or deserved. I agree with others that everything felt way too rushed. It seems like in his cockiness Whedon brought characters back and changed character relationships without rhyme or reason and slapped a completely lackluster plot on...

    Loved the official Buffy canon comics, but this felt wayyyy too rushed. It was great they addressed the flashback in Fray, but this battle was anything but epic. Illyria seriously could've beat a small army of second rate demons on her own, the same way she cleaned house with Wolfram...

    This series deserved a better sendoff and probably would have gotten it had Christos Gage been left in charge of the story instead of Joss Whedon; had it been given more than four issues to wrap up; and had they kept Rebekah Isaacs in place as the artist instead of bringing back George...

    Well, unlike apparently everyone else on here, I had not realized this was the end. Boo! My thoughts: Yeah. This thing was suuuuper rushed. Fred. Seriously? What a bunch of jerks! Argh, the art is SO BAD sometimes! This ending just feels...lame. And not like Buffy much...

    Reading this was a labor of love. I knew it was the "end" of this iteration of Buffy and I wanted to see it through, but it wasn't as good as previous seasons. I'm a sucker for Buffy + Spike so their breakup probably effected my experience some. Moreso, the art wasn't as good and the s...

    What a great way to end the Buffy canon series. Rewriting Fray?s ?history? and changing Willow?s future and the future of the Slayer line from what we saw in season 8. So sad it was only four issues. But so happy they were some of the most action packed and happy ending of four...

    A bit rushed, the way final seasons and their exposition bombs to set the scene always feel rushed. Lots of good stakes. Maybe jumped the shark on one of the small bads but we?ll see how it plays out. ...

    Everything converges! Loving where this is going. ...

    A wonderful story and so Buffy..... ...

    A fun continuation of the series, that feels like it sets things up for more stories going forward. Neat to see all the characters though. Miss this universe ...

    A glorious end for a wonderful series. ...

    Okay, there?s too much to unpack here. Let?s talk about how this comic broke my heart in too many ways. Heartbreak #1: It's all over Buffy has been living in the Dark Horse comics for 11 years. That's four whole years more than the TV show got. It wasn't just a continuation of ...

    This was a sudden and rushed ending to the Buffy comics seasons, which the writers have been open about because of behind the scenes things, and it definitely reads that way. It also has the misfortune of following up some of the worst runs in the series history, Angel and Giles Season...

    Wow. Not the ending Dark Horse's Buffyverse needed or deserved. I agree with others that everything felt way too rushed. It seems like in his cockiness Whedon brought characters back and changed character relationships without rhyme or reason and slapped a completely lackluster plot on...

    Loved the official Buffy canon comics, but this felt wayyyy too rushed. It was great they addressed the flashback in Fray, but this battle was anything but epic. Illyria seriously could've beat a small army of second rate demons on her own, the same way she cleaned house with Wolfram...

    5 ? Nice to see how Buffy and the game have been doing. Sad that Buffy and Spike broke up again. Interesting that Dawn and Xander now have a baby. Hope that they will be able to stop Harth. ...

    It's all coming together! Giles is back to his old self, Buffy and Spike are finally over, sadly Angel and Illyria aren't... and Joss threw in a baby a la Angel season three... and of course Fray! ...

    So apparently Dark Horse has lost the rights to Whedon properties which doesn't really explain No Power in the Verse since that had a cliffhanger suggesting that they expected to write more, but it does explain this mess of a comic. I picked this comic up because it's the last one ...

    Blergh. Not the ending I wanted! The art... bleh most of the time. And did we really need to pull in literally every character that ever existed? I'd have much preferred like a Buffy/Willow/Xander/Giles old school resolution or something. Anyway.... meh. :( ...

    3.5 stars That felt like a definitive ending. I wonder if it really is. If so, The Reckoning was a good story to end with, even if some of the plot points bummed me out. A villain I never thought I?d see again showed up, and his goofy lines made me so happy. I felt a little lost b...

    Honestly, Buffy and the Scoobies deserve better. The post-television comic seasons have certainly had their ups and downs, but the last couple were pretty great. I don?t know what happened to Georges Jeanty?s art since he was last on the book, but something certainly did. I loved h...

    Read in comic book form. So happy with Season 12, especially after the Giles miniseries debaucle. Season 12 had everything I love about the Buffy comics: fun cameos, the gang all together again, a happy ending...? (Well, about as happy as it can get for now in the Buffyverse.) ...

    Really, that's how you end things Joss? ...

    I have become a big fan of George Jeanty's Buffy art, plus this had the Joss Whedon touch. Unlike some of the comic seasons, it also had a bit of closure to it. I loved seeing Fray again - I would've like more of her in this comic. I liked the twist actually. Time travel tempts the ...

    Overall, the comics? finale was a bit like the comics themselves, a mixed bag. There?s a sense of being underwhelmed, because there?s just no match to the cinematic sense of hope and change ?Chosen? had, or even the dramatic heartbreak and sacrifice of ?The Gift?. But, t...

    What a great way to end the Buffy canon series. Rewriting Fray?s ?history? and changing Willow?s future and the future of the Slayer line from what we saw in season 8. So sad it was only four issues. But so happy they were some of the most action packed and happy ending of four...

    A bit rushed, the way final seasons and their exposition bombs to set the scene always feel rushed. Lots of good stakes. Maybe jumped the shark on one of the small bads but we?ll see how it plays out. ...

    So apparently Dark Horse has lost the rights to Whedon properties which doesn't really explain No Power in the Verse since that had a cliffhanger suggesting that they expected to write more, but it does explain this mess of a comic. I picked this comic up because it's the last one ...

    Blergh. Not the ending I wanted! The art... bleh most of the time. And did we really need to pull in literally every character that ever existed? I'd have much preferred like a Buffy/Willow/Xander/Giles old school resolution or something. Anyway.... meh. :( ...

    3.5 stars That felt like a definitive ending. I wonder if it really is. If so, The Reckoning was a good story to end with, even if some of the plot points bummed me out. A villain I never thought I?d see again showed up, and his goofy lines made me so happy. I felt a little lost b...

    Honestly, Buffy and the Scoobies deserve better. The post-television comic seasons have certainly had their ups and downs, but the last couple were pretty great. I don?t know what happened to Georges Jeanty?s art since he was last on the book, but something certainly did. I loved h...

    Read in comic book form. So happy with Season 12, especially after the Giles miniseries debaucle. Season 12 had everything I love about the Buffy comics: fun cameos, the gang all together again, a happy ending...? (Well, about as happy as it can get for now in the Buffyverse.) ...

    Really, that's how you end things Joss? ...

    Parádní zavr?ení v?eho, co se na nás v komiksovém Buffyverse za poslední dekádu (ano, Dark Horse do toho, alespo? co se ?ist? nových p?íb?h? tý?e, ?lápl poprvé u? v roce 2007) nahrnulo. Od prvních stránek jsem byl ze v?eho slu?n? nostalgický, nejen proto?e...

    I have become a big fan of George Jeanty's Buffy art, plus this had the Joss Whedon touch. Unlike some of the comic seasons, it also had a bit of closure to it. I loved seeing Fray again - I would've like more of her in this comic. I liked the twist actually. Time travel tempts the ...

    I've stood by the Dark Horse Buffy seasons up until this point. I watched as my beloved characters faced new and, often, improved big bads. Everything felt reasonably changed and altered from the TV series. Old scoobies and baddies returned, and new friends were introduced. The Angel &...

    Jestem bardzo zadowolony z tego, jak t? histori? zamkni?to ? z optymizmem odzwierciedlaj?cym fina? siódmego sezonu. Cho? dialogi czasem tr?c? myszk?, scenariusz fajnie nawi?zuje zarówno do serialowych, jak i komiksowych przygód Pogromczyni. Wisienk? na torcie jest dla m...

    At first, I thought that the plot was moving way too fast and too much was skipped in order to jam in the big ending arc, due to Dark Horse canceling all its comics, but the last issue gave me lots of feels and made it back to a four star story for me. They left it open for the possibi...

    Overall, the comics? finale was a bit like the comics themselves, a mixed bag. There?s a sense of being underwhelmed, because there?s just no match to the cinematic sense of hope and change ?Chosen? had, or even the dramatic heartbreak and sacrifice of ?The Gift?. But, t...

    This series deserved a better sendoff and probably would have gotten it had Christos Gage been left in charge of the story instead of Joss Whedon; had it been given more than four issues to wrap up; and had they kept Rebekah Isaacs in place as the artist instead of bringing back George...

    Well, unlike apparently everyone else on here, I had not realized this was the end. Boo! My thoughts: Yeah. This thing was suuuuper rushed. Fred. Seriously? What a bunch of jerks! Argh, the art is SO BAD sometimes! This ending just feels...lame. And not like Buffy much...

    Reading this was a labor of love. I knew it was the "end" of this iteration of Buffy and I wanted to see it through, but it wasn't as good as previous seasons. I'm a sucker for Buffy + Spike so their breakup probably effected my experience some. Moreso, the art wasn't as good and the s...

    What a great way to end the Buffy canon series. Rewriting Fray?s ?history? and changing Willow?s future and the future of the Slayer line from what we saw in season 8. So sad it was only four issues. But so happy they were some of the most action packed and happy ending of four...

    A bit rushed, the way final seasons and their exposition bombs to set the scene always feel rushed. Lots of good stakes. Maybe jumped the shark on one of the small bads but we?ll see how it plays out. ...

    Everything converges! Loving where this is going. ...

    A wonderful story and so Buffy..... ...

    A fun continuation of the series, that feels like it sets things up for more stories going forward. Neat to see all the characters though. Miss this universe ...

    Okay, there?s too much to unpack here. Let?s talk about how this comic broke my heart in too many ways. Heartbreak #1: It's all over Buffy has been living in the Dark Horse comics for 11 years. That's four whole years more than the TV show got. It wasn't just a continuation of ...

    This was a sudden and rushed ending to the Buffy comics seasons, which the writers have been open about because of behind the scenes things, and it definitely reads that way. It also has the misfortune of following up some of the worst runs in the series history, Angel and Giles Season...

    Wow. Not the ending Dark Horse's Buffyverse needed or deserved. I agree with others that everything felt way too rushed. It seems like in his cockiness Whedon brought characters back and changed character relationships without rhyme or reason and slapped a completely lackluster plot on...

    Loved the official Buffy canon comics, but this felt wayyyy too rushed. It was great they addressed the flashback in Fray, but this battle was anything but epic. Illyria seriously could've beat a small army of second rate demons on her own, the same way she cleaned house with Wolfram...

    5 ? Nice to see how Buffy and the game have been doing. Sad that Buffy and Spike broke up again. Interesting that Dawn and Xander now have a baby. Hope that they will be able to stop Harth. ...

    Started a little slow, but by the halfway point I was hooked! This was a great conclusion to the comic series, although I?m also devastated there won?t be more!! I?m very much not a fan of the art style though- I found it really hard to connect to the characters because of it, bu...
