I was honestly very skeptical. I’m a huge Buffy fan, with a very large collection of items, including every original story book from the old show. I loved them all. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed this incarnation.
It’s a reboot. It’s buffy, in high school in 2019. She has an iPhone, Willow’s out already, and Xander runs a blog talking about his depression. Spike and drusilla have reversed roles, Anya has a bit of a different role. We meet characters with different personalities, that fit with the current time and social structures they would encounter in high school.
The story is the same. It’s about the evils of high school and being a teenager. Demons and vampires run amok, all while Cordy is running for prom queen. It still tells the story we all love, but it applies to a new generation.
Give it a chance. It’s not the Buffy we’ve loved for two decades. But it’s one we can love for years to come.
The artwork is great. The characters are flawed, which, lets be honest, is one of the reasons we loved them from the start.
