Buffy is being hunted by a monster which wants to kill her and initiate the end of the world.

Buffy comics are not usually considered by fans as canonical. 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), and the books were therefore later published as officially Buffy merchandise.
