"Buffy" Season 8 continues with issue #30! The war between Twilight's minions and Buffy's army rages in the Tibetan mountains. Bereft of their magic, the girls Wiccans and Slayers face an epic battle in which they have no hope of victory. Buffy has already done the _retreat_ thing once, plus also put herself and her army into hiding! What can she do now that there is no magic to help them escape from another losing battle? Series artist Georges Jeanty, acclaimed television writer Jane Espenson ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Battlestar Galactica"), and executive producer Joss Whedon conclude Season 8's biggest story yet!

    Jeanty's artwork could be a trifle tighter in places, but for the most part, I think he nails it. Buffy always looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar. Xander always resembles Nicholas Brendan. Some of the faces of the Slayer army could use a little distinction, and for a moment, Giles proportions go way off scale, but Jeanty and Andy Owens match Espenson and Whedon with exciting visuals and a startling depiction of a metaphysical ending. Notice how Buffy comes back into being at first an outline of a drawing. That's a clever little flourish and makes you question whether the ending is really occurring or in Buffy's mind. Either suits me fine. Read Full Review
