Buffy the Vampire Slayer Magazine was a periodic on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. Published initially by MVP Media Group then Titan Magazines, it featured exclusive content such as interviews with cast and crew, and news on upcoming events; as well as thematic articles, past comic strips, and characters’ posters.
The first fan magazine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Official Magazine, was a quarterly periodic in the United States published by MVP Media Group over three years. Beginning in September 1998, there were a total of 12 issues until Summer 2001, when MVP went bankrupt. A Fan Club Magazine was also issued for club members, with exclusive variant covers.
The franchise was then taken over by Titan Magazines, which had been originally producing Buffy the Vampire Slayer Magazine under license since October 1999. The group relaunched the periodic in the United States in March 2002, generally duplicating the UK content.
In addition, Titan published the Angel Magazine, based on the Angel series. In August 2005, the Buffy and Angel magazines were merged, alternating bi-monthly publications as Buffy the Vampire Slayer featuring Angel and Angel featuring Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Buffy reached its final issue in July 2007 with a total of 31 issues, compared to 94 for the UK edition.
