Autumnal is the ninth volume of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic trade paperbacks, collecting issues twenty-six to twenty-eight of the comic book series. It was originally published on December 19, 2001, by Dark Horse Comics.


Buffy is being stalked by a creature intent on killing her so that it can bring about the end of the world. So, what else is new? The only person who can save her is a Slayer who should have died a long time ago. Confused? Well, so are Buffy and the gang. If that’s not weird enough, what’s she to make of a backpack full of maggots? How about a herd of rats that overrun the cafeteria just as she’s sitting down to eat? Just how much can Buffy take before she gets totally grossed out? Chris Boal, Tom Fassbender, and Jim Pascoe join Buffy artists Cliff Richards and Joe Pimentel to bring you two tales of revenge and retribution. Collecting issues #26–28 of the ongoing series.[1]
