By: Nicole D’Andria Inspired by the Buffy Challenge, I’ve been enjoying some of the Buffy comics. Specifically, the very first season after Buffy went off the air and into the comic book panels.

Yet even with this gimmick this title still feels like it was a disappointingly missed opportunity. There are…
