If you have not read the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics yet, it's not too late to join in on the fun!
Season Eight was extremely successful, as it's one of Dark Horse Comics most popular titles in the history of Dark Horse! Buffy the Vampire Slayer is currently in Season 9! (If you haven't seen the show, you will not understand the comic. If you haven't seen the show, then I have a question for you, Why the **** not? It's only one of the greatest shows in nerd history!?) If you want to buy Season Eight, then I encourage you to purchase the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 Library Edition Volume 1 HC! This comes out May 30, 2012. Buffy fans everywhere will be excited to get one of these in their hands. The Library Edition Volume One includes the first two arcs in the Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic, issues 1-10. For those Buffy fans who have done their homework and turned it in on time, the first trade paperback of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 is coming out on August 1, 2012. If you are looking to find issues 1-5, you can probably find these online at Things From Another World. Otherwise, you'll just have to wait until August. :(
If you just can't get enough of Buffy, check out the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibuses. These came out before Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season eight and begin during Season 2 of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show. Volume 1 does not include the first issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998), so you can purchase issue 1 here.
