Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales42. Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales by Joss Whedon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A beautiful hardbound collection of stories about slayers and vampires within the universe of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (It even has a red ribbon for a built-in bookmark.) Though there are familiar faces from the television series in the book, most of the stories are set throughout different periods of history. Some reveal cool background for the featured TV characters though, and there are even a few stories set during Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight.

Joss Whedon wrote several of the stories, the rest by other writers from the show and elsewhere. The art is also done by a number of people which gives a broad spectrum of illustration styles to check out. I really enjoyed the variety of art.

Definitely a good gift for a Buffy fan who also enjoys graphic novels.
