Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus #1



The smash TV hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer led to nearly a decade of comics at Dark Horse-including multiple specials, one-shots, and guest miniseries. This omnibus series is the ultimate compilation of the Buffy comics Dark Horse has published, and runs along the TV series' timeline.

This first volume begins at the beginning - The Origin, a faithful adaptation of creator Joss Whedon's original screenplay for the film that started it all. The newly-chosen slayer's road to Sunnydale continues in Viva Las Buffy and Slayer, Interrupted. Next, high school, the Scoobies and an English librarian lead the way into Season One continuity. Plus, The Goon creator Eric Powell provides pencils to "All's Fair," featuring Spike and Drusilla at the 1933 World's Fair. Dark Horse Comics 296 pages.

Hey Elderly! Have you noticed a certain 'anonymous' being a bit cagey over at my place?

I did FK, i spotted him the other evening, i've get a number of anons h here from time to time, they chat away, but damn it gets confusing responding to them sometimes.....

Aahhhh Buffy.. I loved Buffy, still do, the humour wasn't belly shaking, but boy was it clever.. Joss Wheldon can do no wrong in my eyes....

Gnome how quickly you spotted the characteristics of my little green friend... he did in truth have a part to play in composing that piece... loves his buffy too he does.... only a mother could love him though......

Ah, a leprechaun with a taste in supernatural sitcoms is indeed a rare gift...

Hi Father! I'll be over to your place asap...
