Some of the best Buffyverse stories ever told were actually in print.
Oh, sure, the weekly TV adventures of the famous vampire slayer and her friends got all the attention, but devoted fans in the know were also reading along with some completely original and gripping tales thanks to the creators at Dark Horse Comics.
While fans of the show know Buffy spent time in a sanitarium, readers of the comic book series got to go inside with her. Everybody knows that Rupert Giles became Buffy’s watcher at the beginning of the series, but readers know exactly what he had to go through to get the job.
And readers also got treated to some wonderful side trips like the Slayer’s kid sister’s adventures with a possessed stuffed animal in Dawn And Hoopy The Bear, and the hilariously sadistic travels of Spike and Drusilla in stories like The Queen Of Hearts and All’s Fair.
Now all those who missed out the first time around can catch up, as Dark Horse releases a series of Buffy Omnibuses, reshuffling the various issues and series so that they now follow along from the earliest point (set before the events of the first season of the TV show) to the end of the seventh, and final, year.
As creator Joss Whedon, with a little help from friends, unfolds Season 8 monthly in the Dark Horse Comics series, now’s your chance to get the whole story — from beginning to end.
