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

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.

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 . . .

Volume 4 of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer omnibus series concludes Buffy's high-school career, wrapping up Season 3 of the show's story line. Collected in this volume are the complete Bad Blood saga written by Andi Watson (Clubbing), the first attempt at making a "season" of the comics, where Buffy battles a sultry vampire who hungers for a lot more than blood; the first comics work by Buffy the Vampire Slayer television-series writer Doug Petrie, and critically acclaimed artists Eric Powell (The Goon), Ryan Sook (Star Wars: Rebellion), and Cliff Richards (Buffy Season 8), whose stories follow the Scoobies through their final year at Sunnydale High; and the first Angel miniseries, The Hollower, written by acclaimed Buffy novelist Christopher Golden (Baltimore; or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire). • The Buffy omnibus books collect the earliest Buffy comics and are an excellent precursor to Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 series. • This volume collects Buffy issues #9-#11, #13-#15, and #17-#20, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Bad Dog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike and Dru: Who Made Who, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel: The Hollower.
