Read this because I needed to read a graphic novel for a couple of reading challenges. I was a big fan of the first six seasons of the Buffy TV series, so this seemed like a good option since I'd know the characters already. I picked this volume because it was the earliest one on the shelves at the local library.

I probably would have been better off finding the first volume post-TV-show. Clearly, a lot had happened since I stopped watching and that made some parts difficult to follow. Not that I can't figure out that a zompire is some sort of zombie/vampire cross. But I don't know why they're now a thing.

Despite that, it was a decent read. I always enjoyed Buffy/Spike interaction. I'll round it up to four stars because it was my fault for jumping in midseries.

A continuation of the Season Nine volume for Buffy, this follows the slayer as she contends with zompires, a rogue slayer, and a well meaning but clueless member of her supporting cast thinking he was doing her a favour. Spike is along for the arc, and the creative team does very well in conveying the personality and essence of these characters. The pacing of the story moves along nicely, with some rather unusual twists along the way.
