Good comic and nice story tough,I hope to understand better with the next of it cause the stories are too much tangled.
If you've entertained the idea that he might have "lost his touch," get ready to be wrong. Joss scores another 100 points for this one-shot comic, "A Beautiful Sunset," which has a lot of stuff we've been waiting a long time for.
+ Buffy fights the Big Bad of the season for the first time, which is always entertaining. The fight/flying scenes are the best action panels that Jeanty has shown thus far, and the Mid-Fight-Dialogue made my spine tingle. Twilight is worthy of "Big Bad" status in a big, bad way.
+ Qe get a lot of development on the "Satsu Loves Buffy" storyline, and a lot of cool character moments in the beginning and the end (the eye-weller of a scene where the injured Buffy and Satsu lean against a grave after the climactic fight).
+ Also, there's some vamp slayage, something the series has been sorely missing.
Overall, this is what you've come to expect from Joss, the man who brought us episodes like "Becoming," "The Gift," "Chosen," etc. While the issue may not be as BIG as those ones I just mentioned, it succeeds brilliantly in what it is trying to be. It's big on character development, plot-set up, drama, and humor, all of which Joss is the master of. If this is only the fifth episode of the season (figure it out), this is looking to be by far the strongest since Season Five.
Also, I have to give it up to Joss for the "itchy neck" moment. What a great "gotcha!"
