Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series continues in comic form with the revolutionary Season 8! This deluxe hardcover edition collects Predators and Prey and Retreat, the fifth and sixth arcs of Season 8, along with three short stories originally published in MySpace Dark Horse Presents. In a strange turn of events, Buffy begins to experience Twilight's reach through the growing mass popularity of vampires-they even have a spokesperson with a reality TV show, Harmony Kendall! Rebel Slayer Faith continues on her journey to help other directionless Slayers, and Slayer Simone has also come back onto the Scoobies' radar. Meanwhile, Dawn finally deals with her ongoing growing pains. Then, as more and more of the world seems to envision Slayers as public enemy number one, Buffy takes her troops to a refuge in the Tibetan mountains, where she hopes to receive some help from Oz.
