The television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer has long been a phenomenon unto itself — beloved by critics and followed by legions of devoted fans. This modern, urban, undeniably funny and chilling revamp of classic horror movie tales has built a rich and complex universe. In Tales of the Slayers Joss Whedon and fellow writers (including cast member Amber Benson) explore the history of slayers past, from the Napoleonic era to the American West. Joss Whedon and his fellows use comics and graphic novels to explore stories that never aired in the show, and the series of graphic novels produced have been far superior to most tie-ins. For similar titles, try Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Origin, based on Joss Whedon’s original script for the film, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Ring of Fire for a stand alone “episode.”
