That ain’t no Angel folks, It’s season one’s very own blood sucking Master! Back from the dead(again) to raise hell in the final story arc of Buffy season 8, written by Whedon himself of course. Here’s a quick look at issue #37:
Spike and Buffy are finally reunited (*sigh*) and lucky him-he’s discovered the source of all her problems, and it’s not Angel. Now Buffy must revisit the place where love was indiscriminate, the Scoobies were formed, and Hell’s mouth was closed for good.
Joss Whedon and Georges Jeanty launch readers into the finale of Buffy Season Eight, promising more adventure, twists, and turns. Bonds are tested, lives altered, and oh!-the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.
Well, it looks like there’s gonna be all sorts of trouble before the last punch is thrown in Sunnydale. Joss Whedon and Georges Jeanty promising readers more adventure, twists, and turns then the all music episode! The Scoobies bond will be tested, lives altered, and once again the fate of the word in their hands. Why can’t it ever be a fight over who gets to ride shotgun.
