Behind the scenesEdit


  • The title is a reference to the song "A Boy Named Sue" (1969), continuing the thread of classic songs for titles since Hey, Good Lookin', Part One.
  • The photo cover features a promotional picture taken for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 3.
  • Differently from other representations, at this point the comic issues had vampires also able to transform into green creatures with red eyes, pointy ears, a wide mouth, and long teeth. Although, this seems more like an artistic choice, not having direct consequence to the stories.

  • Todd mentions his band appearing on MTV channel.
  • Cordelia compares Buffy’s work as a Slayer to ER television series.
