(SPOILER) First look at the cover art for the Buffy Season 8: Retreat tpb. Marked spoiler since the description for the arc might be spoilery for some.

That's a pose I never thought I'd see Buffy in.
Me neither... maybe she only wants a hug!
Lovely cover, though!

She did have that pose when she was about to be arrested in Becoming part 2. When Spike "saved" her.
And when she actually *was* arrested in "Bad Girls".
So maybe Twilight is Interpol after all, and s9 will have Buffy in jail for bank robbery?

I don't see the spoiler...
Couldn't identify everyone from the cover though. Wished there was a bigger image of it.
My guess is Giles, Oz, Kennedy, Satsu, Faith, Xander.
Beautiful cover. I am so behind on the TPB's. I believe the last one I got was Wolves at the Gate. Yep, I've got some catching up to do!
Unlike Angel (which I'm only collecting the single issues) for some reason I'm collecting both for Buffy, the Single Issues and also the TPBs.

I'm still a bit behind though. Last issue I read was #20. Some catching up to do.
Sorry, a little slow to respond but I've posted a larger, clearer image of the new tbp on my website:

I also address my rumoured departure from the Buffy series.
Thanks for that, I'll make a front page item.
Thanks, Jo Chen, amazing art as always. I think people only panic about rumours of you leaving the comic because they'd miss your work so much.
