Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunites with the writers from his hit TV shows including Tick creator and Angel Executive Producer Ben Edlund for an imaginative and frightening look into the history of vampires in the world of the Slayer. Intricately woven around a central story by Whedon featuring a group of young Watchers in training meeting their first undead, Whedon's staff of writers present stories ranging from medieval times to the Depression to today, as well as Buffy's rematch with Dracula and Angel's ongoing battle with his own demons. Wrapped in a haunting cover by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Collecting the five issue miniseries.

Review:

"Although Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel have both ended, new stories set in creator Whedon's 'Buffyverse' continue to appear in comics published by Dark Horse. Whedon and several of his shows' writers — Ben Edlund, Jane Espenson and Drew Goddard — contribute to this new collection of stories about vampires, set in disparate times and places. Buffy turns up for a rematch with Dracula, but Goddard's new story makes this mythic vampire look foolish. Brett Matthews's tale, in which the heroic vampire Angel again confronts his Hyde-like other self, Angelus, breaks no new ground. More successful is Goddard's prequel to the television debuts of the vampires Spike and Drusilla, dramatizing how these literally soulless beings can nonetheless be deeply in love. Espenson's three tales are particularly impressive, including one ironically written (and drawn by Scott Morse) in the style of a children's Christmas storybook. Artist Vatche Mavlian gives the right period look to Matthews's vampiric twist on the mystery of Jack the Ripper. Whedon intriguingly portrays the mindset of a lonely fantasy fan whose wish for 'magic' in her life disturbingly comes true when she joins the ranks of the undead. The level of writing and art varies widely through the anthology, but the successes outweigh the disappointments." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"An entertaining anthology of Slayerverse yarns written by Buffy staff writers." Entertainment Weekly

Synopsis:

Tales of the Vampires presents stories ranging from medieval times to the Depression to today, all intricately woven around Joss Whedon's central story about a group of young Watchers in training. Not to be missed is Buffy's rematch with Dracula and Angel's ongoing battle with his own demons. Wrapped in a haunting cover by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, these diverse tales flesh out the history and the world of Joss Whedon's unforgettable creations and fill the void left by the Buffy TV show better than any other writers ever could.
