The definitive comics collection of all things Buffy starts here. This first massive 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, Sunnydale, 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.

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. A fitting companion to Whedon's comics-based relaunch of the show.

    Packed full of buffy goodness, follow our favorite slayer as she learns what she is, and finds out what it's like to be the chosen one at such a tender age.

    This is a great collection of early Buffy stories. Starts off with a Spike & Dru story that sets the stage...vampires are real and have been around for a long time.

    Then Buffy is introduced and discovers she is the Slayer. We meet Merrick and after a turn of events, Buffy ends up in Las Vegas. Other highlights include Angel getting trapped in a time warp, Giles fighting his past, a giant teddy bear and the Buffster in a mental institution. Good stuff!

  • Nov 22, 2007 from Montebello, NY

    An interesting look at Buffy's life, although it's odd trying to fit it into the show.


  • Oct 21, 2007 from Keansburg, NJ

    A collection of the comics that pre-date the series, including a comics adaptation of what the movie should have looked like, a story explaining what happened to Pike, a back story on Giles, and an account of Buffy's time in an institution.

    Also included is a Dawn-centered story, "Dawn and Hoopy the Bear" which is almost worth the price of the collection by itself (strictly speaking, the story never happened, but Dawn and Buffy remember it happening, which is all that matters).

    Finally, what would a story collection be without a cover gallery?


  • Aug 23, 2007 from Ontario, Canada

    A great compilation of all the Buffy comics. I love how it goes chronologically through the Buffy timeline instead of in order of the issues released. A great companion to those who have never read the old series of Buffy comics. A MUST read!


  • Aug 20, 2007 from FL

    Great issue!!! Keep them coming!


  • Aug 14, 2007 from raleigh, nc

    The first omnibus is wonderful! I really liked the background that was showed with Buffy's parents, the anger and coldness that is shown in her dad in these comics reflects how he was not there at all for Buffy and Dawn after Joyce died. I also loved the early Spike and Dru comics!


  • Aug 11, 2007 from California

    I was thrilled to finally see Joss Whedon's original intention for the movie. I've wanted to try to ask him to write a book for his original vision for it for some time, and while a regular book would be more detailed, this is probably as close as it'll get for some time.

    I really liked the other stories, as well.


  • Aug 10, 2007 from AR

    A great way to catch up on Buffy comics.


  • Aug 09, 2007 from Chicago

    Great collection of pre-TV series stories including the original take on the movie


  • Aug 09, 2007 from California

    Not a comic fan - just a Buffy fan. Drawn well, wouldn't mind a tad more text tho'. I actually read the story.


  • Aug 09, 2007 from California

    I couldn't put it down; I had to read it all in one sitting.


  • Aug 09, 2007 from Los Angeles

    Absolutely loved it!


  • Aug 09, 2007 from Temecula, CA

    LOVE IT!!!! Can't wait for volume 2.


  • Aug 08, 2007 from denmark

    I've waited so long for this omnibus. I haven't read the comics before, so this was my first look on the stories before Sunnydale! Both the writing and drawing are fab. I can't wait to get no. 2.


  • Aug 01, 2007 from Yucaipa, Ca

    Great, I love it. Thank you for having what I like.


  • Aug 01, 2007 from Ohio

    Great Product


  • Jul 29, 2007 from California

  • Jul 23, 2007 from Fort Worth, TX
