Billy the Vampire Slayer, Part Two is the fifteenth issue of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine comic book series. Written by Drew Z. Greenberg and illustrated by Karl Moline with Ben Dewey, it was originally published on November 14, 2012, by Dark Horse Comics.


Training has begun, bringing the newest Slayer and Watcher closer together. Will they be ready when they're needed most? The rapidly growing zompire population has overcome a local institution, and our heroes in training must take on the fight of their lives!

Buffy show writer Drew Z. Greenberg (Warehouse 13) brings us this special two-part story about a young duo coming together to fight the forces of evil and discover their role in this strange, new 'verse.


While Billy exercises in an empty school gym, Katie and Devon watch him and discuss his progress. When Devon starts complimenting Billy, Katie figures he has a crush on Billy.

Later that night, Devon and Billy go to an abandoned store where zompires were spotted. While they are staking out the place, a zompire appears. Devon staked it and tells Billy he is not yet ready to fight.

Later yet, back at Billy's home, they continue the discussion when a news report comes on TV saying that zompires have overrun a public library and are holding hostages there. Billy's grandmother volunteers there, and so Billy wants to go after her. Devon tells him he can't go yet, but Billy ignores him.

The police have blocked off the entrance to the library, but Billy knows a secret way to get in. Devon came after him though, and he admits to liking Billy and having set up the Slayer/Watcher thing in an attempt to get closer. He knows Billy still wants to go save his grandmother, and so Devon decides to join him. Together, they sneak into the library. They continue on unnoticed until a zompire bumps into them, alerting the whole group. They run away to regroup, and Billy kisses Devon before charging at the zompires. While Billy is slaying zompires, Devon seeks out the survivors. Together, they dispatch off the zompires and save the captives, including Billy's grandmother.

In San Francisco, Buffy and Robert Dowling welcome Devon and Billy to their team. The boys are excited about Billy's first patrol and feeling they might belong in the city. Buffy tells them to remember they are not fighting alone and confirms: they do belong.

Devon: "At some point, you have to come up with a new way of dealing with these exercises. I'm running out of speed bags."
Billy: "And I'm running out of knives. We all make sacrifices."
Billy: "We're here, we know they're amassing numbers, likely in preparation for some kind of event which will probably not be good... and now there's smiling. Why is there smiling? Is this a nervous laughter-in-the-face-of-danger thing, or--"
Devon: "I'm smiling because I'm impressed by your moxie."
Devon: "I didn't mean you can't beat them. I meant you can't beat them yet. Not without a plan--"
Billy: "Screw your plan. And screw you. She's the only person in the world who cares about me, loves me for who I am. She stood by me when no one else was there. No one. I'm saving her. With or without you."
Devon: "I didn't expect laughter. I can't lie. This is disconcerting."
Billy: "You... I'm sorry. You... like me? You're the coolest guy in school..."
Devon: "Well, yeah. So what? You're the smartest guy in school. I have a thing for nerds."
Devon: "And after we crawl through tunnels, break into a hostage situation, fight zompires, save your grandmother, and don't get killed... then we can talk about what we mean to each other."
Billy: "Wow. Being gay really is different."
