Creator Joss Whedon's official sequel to Season 7 of the television series continues in this second of two volumes that contain the entirety of the Chosen One's eighth season of fighting demons and dark forces to save the world and mankind. This oversized omnibus edition includes the last four arcs of the Season 8 series along with one-shots and short stories written by Joss Whedon (The Avengers), Scott Allie (Abe Sapien), Steven S. DeKnight (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Jane Espenson (Once Upon a Time), Drew Goddard (The Martian), Drew Z. Greenberg (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jim Krueger (X-Men), Jeph Loeb (Lost), Brad Meltzer (The House of Secrets), and Doug Petrie (American Horror Story), with art by the acclaimed Georges Jeanty (Serenity), as well as Karl Moline (Fray), Cliff Richards, Camilla d'Errico, and more. Also included in this volume is a cover gallery showcasing all of the variant covers that were produced for the comics and collections. Buffy experiences Big Bad Twilight's overwhelming reach through the strange and sudden mass popularity of vampires (they even have a spokesperson with a reality TV show, Harmony Kendall!) that leads Buffy and her Slayer army to come under public scrutiny. As the world's distaste for Slayers grows, Buffy takes her troops to a refuge in the Tibetan mountains, where she hopes to receive some help from longtime friend--and werewolf--Oz. Following a losing battle against Twilight's insurmountable army when their location is discovered, Buffy finds herself imbued with mysterious new superpowers. As she tries to pick up the pieces in the aftermath, she discovers allies gone missing and unexplained massacres of Slayer squads around the globe. This leads Buffy straight to Twilight for a confrontation that rocks the earth's foundation . . . Then in their Season 8 debut, Angel and Spike come to Buffy, each with vital information that guides her back home to Sunnydale. While the remaining Slayer squads fight an onslaught of demons raining down across the earth, Buffy faces the ultimate betrayal and suffers through sacrifice as she scrambles to finally put an end to Twilight and save the world from complete destruction. The losses are great, and when the dust settles, everyone and everything will be different . . .

Series creator Joss Whedon brought Buffy the Vampire Slayer back to life with this comics-only follow-up to Season 7 of the television show. Aptly named Season 8, these comics are the official sequel to Buffy and continue where the live-action series left off with the Slayer, her friends, and their ongoing challenge to fight the forces of darkness. After the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers--newly legion--have gotten organized, but it's not long before new and old enemies begin popping up. Buffy, Xander, Willow, and a very different Dawn are introduced to the season's big bad, Twilight, and begin to understand the incredible reach of this mysterious threat. Meanwhile, rebel Slayer Faith teams up with Giles to handle a menace on the other side of the Atlantic. It's a dirty job, and Faith is just the girl to do it! Then, as Twilight's ominous influence continues to expand Buffy and her Slayers travel to Tokyo to face a new kind of vampire with powers they've only witnessed in Dracula . . . And, when trouble with Buffy's scythe comes to light, Willow and Buffy head to New York to investigate the secrets behind the ancient weapon; ever full of the unexpected, Buffy is transported to a dystopian future where her first chance meeting is with Fray, future Slayer! This oversized omnibus edition is one of two volumes that will contain the entirety of Season 8. It includes the first four arcs of the series along with one-shots and short stories written by Joss Whedon, Brian K. Vaughan, Drew Goddard, and Jeph Loeb, with art by the acclaimed Georges Jeanty, as well as Karl Moline, Paul Lee, Cliff Richards, and more. “Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, is as faboo as the writing.”—Janet Evanovich, New York Times best-selling author of Hard Eight “Buffy the comic might be every bit as good as Buffy the TV show.”—Entertainment Weekly (featured as one of the Best Comics of 2007) “Vaughan is a fantastic writer that conveys emotion and character to a degree of perfection.”—Wired “Drew Goddard is a rare breed: a genre writer who crafts truly inspired characters and lyrical, emotional scenes.”—J. J. Abrams (Alias, Lost, Cloverfield) “Buffy Season 8 is run like the television series from which it came . . . a classic evolving specimen for this era of ever shifting media platforms.”—Los Angeles Times “The whole gang returns, kicking ass and splitting infinitives in Whedon’s inimitable dialogue.”—Wired “Series creator Whedon effectively sucks devotees back into his Hellmouth.”—Entertainment Weekly

Willow and Buffy head to New York City to unlock the secrets of Buffy's mysterious scythe, when something goes terribly awry. Buffy is propelled into a dystopian future where there's only one Slayer — Fray, the title character of Joss Whedon's 2001 series, the first comic he ever wrote. Their uneasy alliance falls apart, leading to the death of a major character from the TV series, while back in the twenty-first century, the Scotland base falls prey to a mystical bomb courtesy of the Biggest Bad-Twilight. * The first two volumes of Buffy Season Eight have combined to sell over 160,000 copies! * Includes the highly anticipated Buffy/Fray crossover, "Time of Your Life," and "After These Messages... We'll Be Right Back," written by Jeph Loeb (Batman: The Long Halloween)! * "Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, is as faboo as the writing." -Janet Evanovich, New York Times best-selling author of Hard Eight * "The dialogue is Whedonesque and I can hear how the actors would read there lines. It's fun and witty and we're treated to more fantastical stories than the WB/UPN could ever pony up the money to do." -Comic Book Resources * A New York Times bestseller!
