Buffy s8

BTVS, S 8 Review:

BTVS: S8, Issue 28

"Retreat, PIII"  (of V)

Script: Jane Espenson, Pencils: Georges Jeanty, Inks: Andy Owens, Colors: Michelle Madsen,
Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft's Jimmy Betancourt
Executive Producer: Joss Whedon

Cover: Another Gorgeous Cover by the incomparable Jo Chen (Seriously, I already admire artist who can draw more than stick figures, but her likenesses are dead on)

Blurb: Despite Willow's best magical efforts, Buffy and the Slayer army are on the run as Twilight and his closest allies - Amy, Warren, and Buffy's former main squeeze, Riley Finn - continue to monitor their every move. Vampires and humans have found a way to live side by side while Slayers - the chose protectors of humanity - are forced further and further into hiding. Over the course of just a few months, the Scotland castle - high-tech base of Slayer operations - was destroyed, and their musty cabin in the woods discovered and abandoned. The most powerful Wiccans and Slayers are unable to defend themselves against the forces of evil, and Buffy must lead her troops to safety. But at what cost?

Just a note, too -- I am nearly done with the "She Creature" review. I want to next get through the last two issues of the "Retreat" arc in BTVS, probably do another "Best of/Worst of Character Moments" post and then a Supernatural, Buck Rogers and X-Files episode review ...
