"Buffy" Season 8 is getting better and better with issue #28! Oh, hello there, gentle viewers! This month we revisit Team Buffy and her army of Slayers at Oz's temple in the mountains of Tibet. Among the yaks, the Slayers and Wiccan troops attempt to suppress dangerous magicks through meditation and hard labor. Buffy embraces this new lifestyle, but not everyone is convinced that leaving magicks behind will solve any problems: among them, a resistant Willow, a doubtful Andrew, and a concerned Giles. For Buffy, the world has not been so peaceful¦so honest¦so full of feeling¦in a long time too bad it's not going to stay that way!
