Buffy the Vampire Slayer #22

In many ways Buffy the Vampire Slayer #22 feels like the calm before the storm as we're taken around Sunnydale on the eve of pending events. There are several pieces to the latest issue of the rebooted Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic, but the common thread seems to be characters seeming lost or out of place.

We see to characters in astral form seeking answers, both the lost Willow and the former slayer Morgan Palmer (who has taken up with Anya to get revenge against the Watcher's Council, although she seems less sure of her decision the more time she spends looking in on Buffy and Giles).

Giles feels pushed aside by the arrival of Wesley Wyndam-Pryce who seems to have the Council's ear (although Giles imparts some wisdom, with a touch of foreboding, about Slayers to the young Watcher). As for Buffy, she seems to work well with both Kendra and Faith, although she too is feeling inadequate to lead a Slayer trio and with her guilt over recent events.

[BOOM!, $3.99]
