|Jo Chen's cover for this issue
THE LOWDOWN: The Long Way Home storyline amounted to what would likely be a very special episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” simply because Buffy’s creator Joss Whedon is the writer. The story arc, taken in its entirety, was quite entertaining, although the first two issues were stronger than the second two. The second half of the story seems just a tad bit thin, but the ending suggests that perhaps the entire run of Season 8 may be quite riveting.
FOR READERS OF: These opening four issues were an event in what is itself an event series. If comic book fans needed what amounted to an opening weekend of a big event movie, this is it.
