The secret revealed: Gaze into the face of Buffy's ultimate foe!S

That's right, it's the Master! The villain of Buffy's very first season, back from the dead. And with Whedon writing the final story arc of Buffy season eight, shit is about to get real. Here's the synopsis for 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.

Issue #37 is on sale October 6, and here's the link to Dark Horse Comics' solicit for it. [Dark Horse Comics]
