Welcome to the Net's premiere (as in first -- I
won't presume to say it's the best) of The Comic
Book Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and Angel).
You are currently viewing version 4.6!
--The Webmaster, December 17th, 2006
the Buffy comics cooled down in 2004, there
wasn't much left to report... until recently: IDW
Publishing bought the licensing rights to the
Angel property and has released a series of
one-shots and mini-series focusing on Angel Season
Five and beyond. Meanwhile, Dark Horse is finally
raising Buffy from the dead, with an upcoming 2007
mini-series penned by Buffy creator Joss Whedon,
who has been writing Marvel Comic's Astonishing
X-Men and Runaways. The upcoming Buffy
mini-series will finally give fans the answer to
what 'Season Eight' of Buffy the Vampire
Slayer might have been.
The site features an archive of all of Dark Horse
and IDW's solicitations for the various
Buffy and Angel books, as well as
extensive biographies in our 'Who's Who?' section
of major and minor characters from the Buffy
books, plus an extensive timeline of all Slayers
who have appeared in the comics, plus reviews and
quizzes and interviews with former Buffy writer
Fabian Nicieza and new Buffy artist Georges
Jeanty (coming soon!). Check out our sub-sites,
which spotlights Joss Whedon's Fray, Tales of the
Slayers and the Buffy Comic Monster Guide.
You may notice that the various biographies stray
far from the television history of the characters.
I've chosen to focus on the comic related histories
of the characters, since the Buffy comics
are not usually considered canonical. Many fans
consider these stories to take place in an
alternative fictional reality instead. This was
most notable in the first twenty or so issues of
the Buffy monthly, which deviated far from the TV
Season Three storyline, however, later issues began
to tie closer to the events occurring on the
television show, most notably during Tom Fassbender
and Jim Pascoe's run. If any of the biographies do
touch upon the TV history that hasn't been
discussed in the comics, it will be brief (i.e Tara
and Anya's deaths, Faith's storyline during Season
The biggest news to mention is our move: After
years of putting up with GeoCities, who offer web
space free of charge, but only 15 MB (which is not
enough), we have joined the HellmouthCentral
family, who have been so kind as to offer a
sub-site space for us to hang our hat. This move
will prevent any future "blackouts": when too many
people were browsing through the site and all the
data transfer usage was used up, causing our site
to become temporarily unavailable.
