Overview

Buffy Season Eight Volume 6 showcases the first retreat of the Slayer legion. Vampires have solid footing at the top of the totem and Slayers have been crushed to the bottom - in short, no one likes Buffy anymore... least of all this season's mysterious Big Bad, Twilight, who is hot on her magical trail! Now that it's the world against Slayers, Buffy must find a way to return the status quo to... status quo - and keep her girls alive long enough to do it! Enter Oz, the only person/werewolf Buffy knows who is down with the suppression of magic, and can take the Slayer army off of Twilight's magic-specific radar. With Oz's assistance, the Slayers and Wiccans try to become "normal" through meditation and hard labor - although, not everyone sees the advantage of being magicless, namely, Willow, Giles, and Andrew. And they could be right. After all, is a peaceful life for a Slayer even possible? * Oz appears in Buffy Season Eight! * Collects issues #26-#30 of the ongoing series. * The first three volumes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight have combined to sell over 220,000 copies! A New York Times bestseller!

It was so hard to put down and I wasn't ready when it ended. I can't wait for the next one!

Another good volume in this season, series, so far. Art style I kind of like but the storylines are good.

I wont give any spoilers away, but this is an awesome continuation of the series. Each volume is more exciting than the last!

Volume 1 and 2 of this series were so stellar, but the rest of the volumes have been a bit uneven and this is probably the worst so far. It is dark (read: depressing), but unlike other dark periods in the TV show and comics, it wasn't very interesting. My biggest criticism is that this seems to wipe away all the character development that has happened in season 7 and 8 - for example, Andrew is nearly seduced by Warren again (saved only by circumstance, not by sense) and repeats his video camera fantasy schtik which was cute for one episode of TV, but completely not worth revisiting. And buffy and willow seem to have lost all the lessons/maturity they learned since series 7. The art is not very good in this one (except the covers, which are awesome) - the Oz drawing doesn't look like the actor at all and neither does dawn. ---SPOILER ALERT: basically, the slayers keep getting beat up and killed and in their last hideout, they voluntarily give up their powers and then get attacked and have to fight with guns - boring and depressing. If you're not a rabid fan, just read the summary and skip this volume.

This is certainly one of my favorites so far of the series.Georges outdoes himself on pencils.The whole artist crew needs some props for this one. The writting is like you would expect from Whendon and Espenson witty,entertaining,and fantastic. The book certainly shifts its gears back home to the core four as they prepare to bring the season to a close. The ending is not expected and it will leave you jonsing for the next volume,Twilight, with Brad Meltzer at the helm. My only qualm with the book is that they are soon over after such a long wait,patience is truly a virtue, but thats my problem certainly not effecting this five star gold
