Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #22

The calm before the storm. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #22 takes a step back from the ongoing battle of Buffy and the Scoobies with all manner of demons being let into this reality by the stolen "Restless Door" to focus on relationships central to the series and lay the foundation for potential problems somewhere down the line.

While initially apprehensive, Willow finds the military's offer to help use her unique knowledge of technology and magic to keep the worlds safe appealing. Buffy on the other hand is less inclined to forget her past dealings with the military as the comic teases a split between best friends who may be starting to grow apart. While the issue makes sure to bring the two women together before the end, the disagreement that caused the fight is far from settled suggesting it may return to raise its ugly head before the end of the season.

The only major storyline deals with the return of Dylan to Spike's life as another of Buffy's core relatinships develops some cracks but, at least so far, doesn't show signs of crumbling just yet. Worth a look.

[Dark Horse, $3.99]
