Countdown to Halloween Spooky Books - Buffy the Vampire Slayer

As we mentioned on ESO #133, Dark Horse Comics has been publishing the continuing adventures of The Buffy Gang. Joss Whedon has been personally involved since 2007 and these stories are considered canon. Season Eight was originally conceived as 24 issues and IMHO, it should have stayed that way. However, if you read the trades it probably will be a better experience since you won't have to wait so long between issues!

Season Nine is currently being released in monthly singe issues now and so far, I think it is better than Eight. There are also a bunch of other spin-off titles on the shelves featuring related characters such as Willow, Spike and Angel & Faith. All of them are well-produced and worthy of checking out.
