After Willow unearths giant Tibetan goddesses to help in the fight against Twilight and his disposable soldiers, the Slayers are forced to retreat when the goddesses go AWOL and attack indiscriminately. Without powers the Slayers are unable to keep up the fight against missile fire, grenade launchers, and tanks. It would seem that all is lost, and Buffy — all alone — must make her last stand on a battlefield covered in the bodies of friends and foes.

Series artist Georges Jeanty reunites with Buffy creator Joss Whedon for this very special Season Eight one-shot.

  1. still not sure if i’ll actually get this

    last issue was awful aside from the very last page

  2. The reveal of Twilight is going to keep me going through the end of the ‘season’

  3. This will likely be my last issue, and mostly because I preordered it. Pretty much everything having to do with the main storyline has been missing on all cylinders.

  4. I hope beyond hope that Whedon and Metzer can get this book back on track. It’s still a servicable read despite the last arc not making much sense or anything. But yeah, it’s on the chopping block.

  5. The editor revealing who Twlight is in an interview has made me loose all interest in this series. I wanted to get to the reveal natrually, now I have to read two more issues of "who is twlight". There had better be a good explanation for how ***** is Twlight, cause at the moment I don’t see it.

  6. I thought they actually should have revealed it a lot sooner and used all this time to develop that. Instead we’ll get the reveal, a couple issues of fights, and then the series will be done. It seems like a strange tactic to me.

  7. All I know is that as soon as this season is over, I’m switching to trades.


  8. This thing jumped the rails a long time ago yet I still keep buying it… I can be dumb like that.

  9. The past ten issues have been not so good. But there were twenty issues of awesome before that. The past couple issues were really badly paced and… self-indulgent,I guess.

    That said, after the Twilight reveal, I’m down with continuing. It can’t get any worse than the last arc.

  10. At issue 40, it’s make or break for me. I don’t see my following into season 9. The book has been hit or miss, at least I’ll always have my season 1-7 boxset.

  11. @GungaDin  I hope you knocked on wood after you said that

  12. The story has gone off the rails and I’m shocked that no one else has mentioned how DIRE the art is, especially in the last issue. It looks so rushed. Sadly I have dropped this, at this standard it’s not worth the money.

  13. I’ve missed the last 6 issues, but I’m back. Hooray for Whedon and Meltzer!

  14. @featheredgothic   trust me there was much complaining about the art for the last few issues actually.

  15. I liked this issue quite a bit. Great smaller character moments that I feel have been missing for awhile. Still don’t like the art. I like that the reveal has been made, it makes me study Twilights dialogue and action a bit more. I kinda want to go back and re-read everything before the book really gets into the heart of it to see what kind of clues there might have been. anyways…

  16. I missed the last arc, and found myself really confused with this issue.

  17. @Ruo21 Yeah. The last arc had a lot of random stuff thrown into it. It was sloppy in art and story. Basically all you have to know going into this is that Xander and Dawn are making out, Riley was undercover with Twilight, and the Slayers and Willow all gave their magic to the Earth, which gave rise to those three weird lookin goddesses.

    Oh, and Buffy can fly…
