Buffy s8

BTVS: S8 Review, Issue 31

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

S8, I31


Script: Joss Whedon, Pencils: Georges Jeanty, Inks: Andy Owens, Colors: Michelle Madsen, Lettering: Richards Starkings & Jimmy Betancourt

Cover: The Incomparable Jo Chen

Blurb: Following a poorly executed retreat into the Himalayan Mountains, Buffy must regroup after sending powerless Slayers into the battlefield to fight against Twilight's military goons and some blood thirsty goddesses. The earth is littered with the bodies of Slayers, werewolves, and humans alike. But in the midst of it all a romance blossoms, bonds are tested, and Buffy takes to the skies.

A Word From Me: I know that my next Buffy S8 review was supposed to be Riley's one-shot. I didn't remember that Twilight's identity is actually spoiled in that story, since it was released after or during the Twilight arc, after Buffy had already found out the secret. I can't really discuss a certain orbiting character associated with Twilight until his identity is known, so I've decided to hold off on that review until after the S8 wrap up with BTVS issue 40.
