    1. 5 starsYay!!! Glad Buffy and Spike got together again. Hope their relationship works the second time around. Nice to finally see Archaeus. Hope they will be able to defeat him. Nice to see everyone dealing with their relationship issues. Can't wait to read Old Demons!!!

    2. *Book source ~ LibraryFrom :The romantic scene for Buffy and friends amps up in unexpected ways. But personal lives are soon put aside to deal with demons, both real and intangible. Spike struggles with vivid dreams of murder, and Buffy journeys into his mind, discovering the terrifying new face of evilThis. Just, this. I’ve been waiting a long time for this scenario to take place. Oh, and there’s a new Big Bad that’s really creepy, powerful, and linked to Spike and Angel. But who cares ab [...]

    3. Oh goody, let's sit and talk about our feelings the whole damn book! Even buffy and spike gettong together was too straightforward and talky. One major league flop with the buffy comics is the explanation of feelings instead of impulse drawings. Is it so hard to find an artist to draw a truely emotional moment without words?Three stars was for the story and however recycled is developing nicely. we will see

    4. Ladies and gentlemen we have normal, healthy, fully informed consummation of a romantic relationship!!!!!! Which I'm sure will last for all of five seconds. Also Spike's nose is not that frickin' big gangbut anyway CONSUMMATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5. Disclaimer 1: Spoilers Disclaimer 2: I have always been 100% Team Spike, and therefore my review is entirely biased and colored by my ridiculous fan girl emotions.F***KING FINALLY.Love Dares You explores the Scooby Gang's budding, failing, or lack of relationships. The volume is extremely character-focused, as each relationship (or lack thereof) reveals the characters' deeper emotions, insecurities, and how they have grown over the season. I felt like each situation was realistic, true to charac [...]

    6. This is my favorite volume so far. Is it because of my Buffy + Spike feels? Possibly. Spike is an interesting, dynamic character and this volume reiterates that. He was good enough even soulless to recognize that he wanted to be better and have a soul. It seems like in Angel + Faith he's done some questionable stuff since then, but this makes him more human. Sort of the same can go for Andrew.Speaking of Andrew, once again hurray for treating homosexuality like it's fine (because it is). They al [...]

    7. I've been less than thrilled by the rewriting-the-rules-of-magic arc that's filled Buffy Season Ten. Fortunately, this volume takes a righthand turn and instead is all about character. Really, it's all about romance — for every one of the main characters. And, it's totally wonderful. Gage nails all of the main characters and manages to intermix their romantic trials with lots of humor.A lot of this story builds on the various relationships that have been developing in recent comics, but the h [...]

    8. The more I read of season 10, the more I think Christos Gage is the perfect successor to Joss Whedon for writing Buffy books. It doesn't hurt that Spike and Andrew, both favorites of mine, are featured heavily this season. I was excited to see that Xander himself, Nicholas Brendan,co-wrote the first 3 chapters. There was a lot of therapy in this volume, which I'm pretty sure I complained about when reviewing a different Buffy comic, but darned if these guys don't need to be knocked over the head [...]

    9. I am so pleased with this. Season 10 as a whole is shaping up to be pretty much what I hoped it would be - what I hoped seasons 8 and 9 would be as well. It's all good fun, with just enough continuing arcs to keep the story going, but not so much that it's stifling everything else.Probably my biggest complaint is there there are perhaps too many individual arcs going at once - just a little too much to be handled in this format, methinks. It's all good reading, and I enjoy every arc, it's just t [...]

    10. 4.5/5 I WILL GO DOWN WITH THIS SHIP!! SPUFFY IS BACK! If you can't tell, I'm fucking psyched that my blonde, superhero, soul-having couple is finally together and in a healthy way. I'm really happy that Gage hammers in the point that Spike before his soul cannot be held accountable for his actions. This seems to be a huge issue in the fandom with huge Bangel fans--they're willing to defend Angel because he is not Angelus but refuse to grant Spike the same kindness. Although I really want more se [...]

    11. There seems to be a heavier emphasis on relationships than action in this volume, but several of the characters make real progress in their dealings with the ones around them. Spike also serves as an introduction to the new big bad, and the action sequences included are actually pretty good. It really does feel like a strong continuation of the series, confidently tying itself back to the original series, and previous issues. The art has changed, going a little more cartoonish but still effectiv [...]

    12. Unfortunately Megan Levens cannot draw Buffy to look like Sarah Michelle Geller, but otherwise there was a lot to like in this collection. So much positive character growth it almost felt like they were all in a therapy session. Some of the affirmations made me teary; I bet a lot of people can relate to the doubt and relationship fears. (I would love to see myself as my spouse sees me—read this to see what great scene I’m talking about.)

    13. This volume was all about love, so of course I was super into it. I mean, these few sets of panels where Buffy and Spike FINALLY get it on get five out of five from me on their own. SPUFFY!! But every other love storyline was also great: Andrew finally realizes he's gay!! Xander and Dawn officially go to just being friends. Willow breaks up with her demon girlfriend. Giles's adult girlfriend rightly refuses to date him as a twelve-year-old. Oh yeah, and there's also a nasty new monster.

    14. I gave this one five stars because, even though the plots weren't the strongest, my favorite couple finally gets together, AND one of the most vexing questions about the mythology of the Buffyverse is answered, very much to my satisfaction. I'm impressed the writers are still able to surprise me, at this point, so they deserve the stars for that alone.

    15. Great book. All the main characters come to terms with their current relationships and find solutions that may or may not work out in the end. We'll see.

    16. Ah, Spuffy.I suppose it's the least annoying relationship they could park Buffy in.And they did spend some time examining the attempted rape from the show. So at least they thought about it.

    17. One of the best arcs of the Buffy comics. (And matches the tone of the show in a way that the comics team has not always managed.)

    18. SPOILER:YEAH! Buffy and Spike together again. Spike is my favorite character ever and I'm so glad that they got together. I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts (b/c nothing in Buffyland ever does). I'm so enjoying Season 10.

    19. Consider me a romantic, but this is the volume that affirms the bonds - and my love - of our characters. Pain brings drama, with love being a foregone conclusion. This volume shows us that love is complicated. Even proclaiming and accepting your feelings for another person does not bring resolution. It simply opens the door to new travails.The relationship that we care most about is Buffy and Spike. Buffy finally admits to herself that Spike is a different man now with his soul. It doesn't chang [...]

    20. Wo der vorige Band noch mit den Charakteren gespielt hat um wieder mehr Leben in die Scooby Gang einzuhauchen - da geht dieses Kapitel eindeutig ein wenig zu weit. Da fühlte man sich an manchen Strecken mehr in einer Soap Opera, wobei man ja getrost zugestehen kann, dass Buffy hier immer wieder mehr als ein wenig gekratzt hat. Hier war es ein wenig zuviel. Trotzdem - bis zum Ende des Bandes blieb es unterhaltsam; insbesondere weil Spike damit wieder mehr Substanz bekommen hat und die Scooby Gan [...]

    21. Relationships are the name of the game in the third collection of Buffy's 10th season. The Scooby Gang is in the midst of rewriting the rules of magic, but are having trouble dealing with the laws of attraction. Xander and Dawn are dancing around her mystical reboot, Giles is trapped by teenaged angst and adult loneliness, and Andrew is finally discovering his sexual identity. Even Buffy and Spike are dealing with feelings, ones that lead them back to each other's arms. During these romantic wri [...]

    22. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellIn this volume, everyone is dealing with their relationship issues. Dawn and Xander are still trying to figure things out, only realizing that the more they try, the worse things seem. Meanwhile Giles is struggling to come to terms with his new situation. As a adolescent teen, he finds it difficult to truly pick up his life where he left it. Willow is busy trying to find herself and she realizes her relationship with Aluwyn isn’t going to work [...]

    23. So basically, Everyone acts maturely in their relationships for a change. And we finally get Buffy+Spike for real (!)r about ten seconds, until at the end, Angel enters the picture. Again. Seriously, he just won't stay gone. I like him fine in his own series, but every time Mr. Broody gets dragged back into a Buffy storyline, I cringe. But of course I'll still read the next volume to find out what ridiculous wrench he throws into things this time. I mean, it's Buffy. I'll read it.This was one of [...]

    24. Loved it - one of my favourites to date. There's a lot of therapy and self-realization in this edition as well as some comments that just needed saying. As a result, Spike & Buffy are back together, Andrew realizes that he's gay (and that everyone is totally fine with this), and there's some great dialogue. The speed-dating scene is also hilarious (as are one guy's list of questions about vampires, like 'How can they smoke', 'But isn't moonlight just reflected sunlight', 'But if they have no [...]
