Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, volume 1

What can I say, besides 'Buffy rules!'? :-) After watching the show a million times, I have now discovered the associated comics - not only the new Season 8 ones, but also these, older, ones.

Volume 1 of the Omnibus gathers together several comics with stories that happen before Season 1 of Buffy starts. One is about Spike and Drusilla, one is more about Dawn and the others are about Buffy's beginnings as the slayer. I loved every minute of every one. And I'm amazed at the art work - just wow.

There's nothing more I can add, except that I love Buffy on so many levels. As most of you know because I keep going on about it. If you haven't seen the show, watch it. And if you have and you want more, this series is perfect for you.

I watched a lot of Buffy on TV, but, never ardently. I have oft' wondered though, how she became a slayer...

I used to be a Buffy fan. Sarah Michelle Gellar was great.

anothercookie - have you seen the movie? It's really cheesy, but I liked it and it gives you the beginning of the story...

Charley - get the comics and get back into it, you won't regret it!! :-))

I really enjoyed this too! I was surprised at how much I liked the prequel stories.

I'm enjoying the Season 8 series (and the two post TV series Angel comic series) but haven't checked out the other Buffy comics ... you've made me think I need to do so - soon. :)
