Buffy Season Eight Volume 6 showcases the first failure of the Slayer legion. Vampires have solid footing at the top of the totem and Slayers have been crushed to the bottom - in short, no one likes Buffy anymore... least of all this season's mysterious Big Bad, Twilight, who is hot on her magical trail! Now that it's the world against Slayers, Buffy must find a way to return the status quo to... status quo - and keep her girls alive long enough to do it! Enter Oz, the only person/werewolf Buffy knows who is down with the suppression of magic, and can take the Slayer army off of Twilight's magic-specific radar. With Oz's assistance the Slayers and Wiccans try to become "normal" through meditation and hard labor - although, not everyone sees the advantage of being magicless, namely, Willow, Giles, and Andrew. And they could be right; after all, is a peaceful life for a Slayer even possible?

4 Oz-starsThe Big Baddy is near and the slayers retreat.In a temple in Tibet they ask Oz for advice.I can't praise the artists (like Jo Chen for exaple) enough, wich create these excellent drawings!
I consider Buffy and Angel two of the best television series that ever aired, so it's disappointing that I haven't read an issue in the comics Season 8 equal to them in quality. It probably doesn't help that I'm less than thrilled with the artistry of Georges Jeanty. People have complained in revi...
I squealed when I saw Oz's face, but it was a bit of a let down. Any off screen character that is going to swoop in and steal a leading man needed a bit more build up than Bay.
This is a weird turn for a Buffy storyline to take. The Slayers are under intense fire, so I get that they're retreating. What I don't get is the decision to survive by voluntarily giving up all of their magically enhanced abilities. Yes, this makes them invisible to magical scans, but it leaves the...
