|Plot Synopsis: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2007) #30|
"Retreat" Part 5 is written by Jane Espenson and drawn by Georges Jeanty. Desperate times call for desperate measures. But sometimes in war, the means to victory are even more terrible than suffering defeat. Hounded by the mysterious Twilight and his allies, Amy the witch, Warren (the skinless) and a para-military branch of the U.S. Army, Buffy and the Slayers have hidden themselves away in Tibet, at Oz's tranquil sanctum. They've also given up their legendary Slayer powers in a vain effort to hide their magic from Twilight's senses.
Now, with their backs up agains the wall, the Slayers have summoned a trio of gigantic Hindu goddesses, each more horrific than the next, to rain down destruction on their attackers. Their strategy works too well, however, as the ancient deities are indiscriminate in their wanton killing. Now, even without her Slayer abilities, Buffy must draw upon her leadership skills and her friends, including Xander, Willow, Dawn and Riley to win the day ... or else!
