Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Vol. 2: Once Bitten

Buffy Summers—the Slayer, the Chosen One meant to save the world from the literal evil forces of hell—must save her friend Xander before he dies… and returns as a vampire. As Giles and Willow each take drastic measures to find a cure, Buffy must face the hardest choice of her already not-so-easy life: save her friend or stop her new enemies, Drusilla (AKA The Mistress) and Spike from opening the Hellmouth. But where does the mysterious vampire with a soul named Angel fit into this mess? And what secret is he hiding that will forever change the war between the Slayer and the Mistress?

Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and artist David López (Captain Marvel) present the next chapter of the fearless pop culture reimagining that generated headlines worldwide.

  • Artemy

    This was a bit weaker than the spectacular volume 1, but still a great read that keeps pushing the boundaries of the Buffy universe. David López takes over Dan Mora on art, and his style is definitel...

  • Chad

    Not as focused as the first volume. And very little is explained. Xavier's deal is only hinted at. When you make that kind of change to a character that everyone reading this already knows, you can't ...

    Mmm this wasn't as good as I expected after reading and loving the first volume. The art style was quite different than in Vol. 1 and the characters didn't quite look like themselves. Also, the storyl...

    (Read as Single Issues)I agree with other reviewers that the art here seemed like a step back, with some characters being unrecognizable from amorphous blobs. But I still am so happy to read some new ...

    Buffy and friends deal with the fallout of the revelation that she is the Slayer, while Xander struggles with his new vampiric side, and the march to Hellmouth continues as Drusilla makes her move!The...

    Not great! After a strong start, this was super disappointing.The elephant in the room is the art. The issues in this volume were done by a different artist, and they're just awful. I'm not one of tho...
