Buffy Summers is neither the first nor the last in a long line of vampire slayers – many of whom we’ve seen in tales written by series creator Joss Whedon, his writing room partners (Jane Espenson and Doug Petrie), and veteran comics writers and artists (Tim Sale, Alex Sanchez and more).
Dark Horse’s new anthology, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus: Tales, collects these stories in 294-page anthology that will be in stores on October 17th.
