Graphic Novel REVIEW: Wolves at the Gate

Cover Image

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Wolves at the Gate (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8 #3)
by Joss Whedon, Drew Goddard, Georges Jeanty
Paperback, 136 pages
Published November 15th 2008 by Dark Horse
Vampires that, at will, can transform into wolves, panthers, insects, or fog invade the Slayer base of operations in northern Scotland, and not only walk away unscathed, but in possession of Buffy's scythe, the symbol of Slayer power worldwide. Buffy and the Slayer-legion travel to Tokyo in order to learn more about their dangerous new foes, as Xander journeys to Transylvania to solicit the only person they've ever known to possess such power - Dracula!



Much like the TV show every once in a while there is a stinker in the pile and this volume wasn't as good as the others.

We get to see another side to Buffy's love life in this one and that might have a little to do with why I didn't care too much for it. When I told my husband that I was ready to drop this series he said stay with it (he has read them all already) that it's really good.

Dracula is back in this one. For those of you that has seen the show you know about how Dracula turned Xander into his Redfield. Apparently after the end of season 7 (the actual end of the TV show) Xander spent a little time with Dracula and they became buddies.

I'll read another one or two volumes before I drop this series. They are written as season 8 of the show but it just doesn't have the same feel to me.
