Buffy still kicks it.,
This review is from: Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 8 Volume 6: Retreat (Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse)) (Paperback)
I love that the comic book format has widened the stage for Buffy and the slayers. It has seemed a *little* odd to have so many old characters returning, but we know by now that death is no bar in the Jossverse, and it keeps us die hard fans comfy. Also to be honest, I love Oz, so seeing him again always makes me happy.
The only thing I think comics tend to lose over the TV format is the group tensions. However, this issue really brings all that back in for the lead up to the season finale. Can't wait to see how that plays out.
I don't know where the story is headed from here (although the half cover of the next comic gives some clue) but you can see the shadow of a big bad looming and a showdown in the offing.
