Wolves at the Gate is, so far, my favorite of the season 8 comics.
Amanda Albert
Wolves at the Gate is one of the best Buffy comic stories I've read in a while and I highly suggest this paperback, especially for fans of the Buffy tv series.
C. E. Prendiville
For Xander, this could only mean one thing... yep, another road trip.

Format: Paperback
The first arc of Joss Whedon's continuation of his cult classic Buffy The Vampire Slayer series, titled The Long Way Home, was a great way to kick off the series, but felt very much like the start of a comic series. The artist was still figuring out the characters, Joss was still figuring out the pace, and--despite how entertaining it was--I knew it would get even better later on. The second arc, the Brian K. Vaughan penned No Future For You, showed an improvement, though it didn't really give fans an idea of how the rest of the series would play out, as it focused more on Faith than any of the core cast. Now, with "Wolves at the Gate," the third volume, Joss brings back writer Drew Goddard to tell a tale about Buffy and her close friends traveling around the world to put a stop to a gang of powerful Japanese vampires.

But first things first. This collection starts off with "A Beautiful Sunset," a one-shot comic written by Joss. It's by far the best issue of the series so far, as it features a lot of insight into Buffy's emotional state, as well as her first fight with the season's Big Bad, a masked man named Twilight.

The remaining four issues make up the eponymous "Wolves at the Gate" arc, which is written by Drew Goddard of Buffy,

Warning! Spoilers ahead! Major spoilers! Do not read if you wish to be spoiler free!

Please take note of the spoiler warning. I've been amazed at how often I start a review with spoiler warnings and then have people complain because the review then features -- get ready for this -- SPOILERS! There are major spoilers below, including THE spoiler. So please don't read this if you want to be spoiler free.

WOLVES AT THE GATE is the third story arc in the ongoing BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Season 8 series, which continues in comic form the adventures of the Scooby Gang, following THE LONG WAY HOME, authored by Joss Whedon himself, and NO FUTURE FOR YOU, the very good Faith arc written by comic legend Brian K. Vaughan. In my opinion WOLVES AT THE GATE is the best arc so far, which is surprising since this is Drew Goddard's first -- as far as I am aware -- at writing for comics. Goddard (who in the summer of 2008 gained very minor fame in the web musical DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG as Evil League of Evil member Fake Thomas Jefferson) has achieved fame as a TV writer, emerging first as the last of many gifted writers on BUFFY (writing or co-writing such great episodes as "Conversations with Dead People," "Lies My Parents Taught Me," and "Dirty Girls." He went on from there to write for ANGEL before joining the staff of ALIAS (where he wrote the series finale) and then on to a minor TV hit called LOST (where Brian K. Vaughan is also on the writing staff). He has also make some noise in film circles, first writing the script for his ALIAS and LOST boss J. J. Abrams's CLOVERFIELD and most recently co-writing with Joss Whedon the script for the upcoming CABIN IN THE WOODS, which Goddard will direct. So while Goddard is not a comics writer, he is very much a writer.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the writing of the third installment of season 8 as much as the other two thus far. Quite compelling in fact, with the real introduction of the "Big Bad" for season 8 as well as the re-introduction of Dracula, who had a memorable episode that started season 5 of Buffy. The relationship he has with Xander is pretty hilarious and takes me back to that episode.
In some ways, this is the best writing of season 8 so far, with a suprising and heart-rending death and a very creative nemesis with a pack of vamps who can shape shift and steal Buffy's scythe in an effort to turn all the slayers back to normal. Good stuff.
If I were to be critical it is the one element, the BIG surprise that I will not mention but has been in other reviews that I felt came from out in left field. Yes, Buffy has felt lonely, yes, she deserves to be happy, but sheesh, it just seemed a bit forced here and out of character. I can swallow it and even enjoyed the aftermath, which was good comedy, but again, it seemed a bit awkward. Not a biggy but still a bit surprising. But even so, it makes for an interesting read, that is for sure.
Overall, excellent writing and the story continues to fascinate me.

OK, so I'm a fanboy, but seriously this is the reason why its worth investing in the first two volumes of this series. Whedon really starts packing in the emotional punches here and how can you not love the return of Dracula in such a spectacularly cool way? Take the time to read this series and you will have fun, I promise. Now if only they could make that Buffy movie a reality...
