[SPOILERS]I was disappointed with the way the cliffhanger from the previous volume was resolved. Buffy turns out to be a robot (okay . . .) but she has her mind and memories because Andrew switched them into a "Buffybot," without her knowing (yuck). This was apparently some twisted scheme to keep her safe (and when has BUFFY needed to be "kept safe"?!) Anyways . . . Xander is grossly out-of-character (though maybe this is hinting at a future plot development?) and the overall arc of this "season" is hard to see at this point. It feels a little directionless. The Spike and Buffy relationship is there, but it doesn't really go anywhere. It just feels like old stuff being rehashed. On the positive side, Cliff Richards's art is a huge relief. Georges Jeanty's stuff makes me cringe. I miss Willow. Also, pink streaks don't really work for Buffy. I hope they pick up their game in Volume 3.

Nice not to have to leave the Buffy-verse just yet, but S9 doesn't quite hold one's attention the way that S8 did. Still worth a read though.
