List of Buffyverse comics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a List of Buffyverse comics including different categories of different types of publications.

Categories[edit]

  • Buffy comics. These were published by Dark Horse, originally in comic format but then gathered into volumes of trade paperbacks. They were published from 1998 until 2004. A small number of Buffy comics have not been included in trade paperbacks. These include the comics: Giles, Jonathan, and Reunion. The cover art of the individual comic covers can be found here. Dark Horse, under the guidance of Joss Whedon, reinstated the series in 2007 as a canonical continuation of the series.
  • Angel comics. Dark Horse published two Angel comic series, the first of which was halted after 17 issues while the second lasted only four issues. Since June 2005, IDW have published a 17-issue limited series, a spin-off ongoing series as well as several miniseries and one shots with Angel characters.
  • Tales of the Vampires trade paperback stories. This comprises an anthology of short stories written by Joss Whedon, Jane Espenson, and other writers of the Buffy TV shows. Each story tells the tale of one or more Buffyverse vampires.
  • Tales of the Slayers trade paperback stories. This is an anthology of short stories written by Joss Whedon, Jane Espenson, and others. Like the prose short stories, each of these surrounds a different slayer from the past.
  • Unofficial parody. There has been a sexually explicit satirical graphic novel, Boffy the Vampire Layer, which is not officially licensed as Buffy merchandise by 20th Century Fox. It was published by Eros Graphic Albums in 2002.

Canonical issues[edit]

Main article: Buffyverse canon

Buffy comics are not usually considered by fans as canonical. However, unlike fan fiction, overviews summarising their story, written early in the writing process, were 'approved' by both Fox and Joss Whedon (or his office), and the books were therefore later published as official Buffy merchandise.
