General description[edit]

The book features the one-shot WannaBlessedBe (drawn by Terry Moore and Eric Powell) and the Wilderness story (drawn by AJ), as well as a story from 'Dark Horse Extra' entitled "Demonology Menagerie" (story and art by Andi Watson).

Wannablessedbe[edit]

Set in Buffy season 5,[citation needed] the envy of a girl toward Willow and Tara's relationship becomes dangerous to Sunnydale when neither Buffy nor the rest of the gang are available to help the young couple.

Wilderness[edit]

Wilderness is set during Buffy season 6,[citation needed] and was previously featured in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Annual 2004. In the story, Willow, Tara, and Dawn become involved in mystery after coming across a plot of cursed earth near the Pacific Coast Highway. The forest animals are controlled and seem to be killing those who wander too far away from the highway. The girls try to put an end to the force corrupting this natural order. The forest has been the site of a number of killings by creatures great and small. Willow, Tara and Dawn face a new enemy, Greenjack, and hope to leave the forest intact.

Canonical issues[edit]

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