A special hardcover collector's edition of the authorized Buffy the Vampire Slayer Watcher's Guides, now with updated content from the cast and crew!

As long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers.

From the first vampire staking to the last glimpse of Sunnydale, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a genre-busting hit, attracting millions of fans worldwide. Even now, two decades later, Buffy the Vampire Slayer still plays a role in shaping an entire generation of media.

Just in time for the show's twentieth anniversary, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Watcher's Guides have been compiled into one hardcover collector's edition for the first time! Inside, you'll find all the best content from Volumes 1–3 of the original Watcher's Guides, as well as exclusive new content, including never-before-seen interviews with the cast and crew.[1]
