==History==
  +
In [[1998]], Dark Horse Comics published its first ''Buffy'' comic story, ''[[MacGuffins]]''. The series was initially a non-canon extension of the television series, with little to no input from its writers. These comics were later retitled ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic]]'', to differentiate from the upcoming canon series. In [[2003]], the production for the ''Buffy'' meta-series halted, and Dark Horse started producing canonical works in other meta-series: ''[[Tales]]'' and ''[[Fray (series)|Fray]]''.
  +
  +
In [[2007]], after a four year publishing hiatus, the first issue of ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight]]'', the canonical continuation of the TV series, was published. In [[2011]], ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine]]'' followed, then in [[2014]] with ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten]]'', and in [[2016]] with ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven]]''.
  +
  +
In 2016, it also began the graphic novel miniseries ''[[Buffy: The High School Years]]'', set during the first season of the television show. The ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven]]'' began in the same year, followed in [[2018]] by the the final season, ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve]]''. The story wrapped up in its finale when it was revealed that the license for the ''Buffy'' comics was moving from Dark Horse after 20 years.
  +
  +
Exceptionally, in 2018 [[Little, Brown Books for Young Readers]] published the first of a new graphic novel series, simply titled ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Little, Brown)|Buffy the Vampire Slayer]]'', introducing Buffy Summers with a new Scooby Gang acting in middle school.
  +
  +
The [[20th Century Fox]]-owned publishing house [[Boom! Studios]] picked up the license of the comics rom Dark Horse, debuting in [[2019]] the homonym ''[[Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2019)|Buffy the Vampire Slayer]]'' series. It’s described as the original television show reimagined for the year of 2019, with the number of issues yet to be revealed.

Buffy

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a comic book meta-series published by Dark Horse Comics in the course of twenty years (1998–2018). Initially, titles in this meta-series were a non-canon extension of the homonym TV show, but it eventually introduced the official continuation of the series in the format of new seasons.

In 2019, a new series was announced to be published by Boom! Studios, reimagining the original story.

SynopsisEdit

The meta-series focused on the adventures of Buffy Summers and the Scooby Gang as they fought against vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness.

HistoryEdit

In 1998, Dark Horse Comics published its first Buffy comic story, MacGuffins. The series was initially a non-canon extension of the television series, with little to no input from its writers. These comics were later retitled Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic, to differentiate from the upcoming canon series. In 2003, the production for the Buffy meta-series halted, and Dark Horse started producing canonical works in other meta-series: Tales and Fray.

In 2007, after a four year publishing hiatus, the first issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, the canonical continuation of the TV series, was published. In 2011, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine followed, then in 2014 with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten, and in 2016 with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven.

In 2016, it also began the graphic novel miniseries Buffy: The High School Years, set during the first season of the television show. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven began in the same year, followed in 2018 by the the final season, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve. The story wrapped up in its finale when it was revealed that the license for the Buffy comics was moving from Dark Horse after 20 years.

Exceptionally, in 2018 Little, Brown Books for Young Readers published the first of a new graphic novel series, simply titled Buffy the Vampire Slayer, introducing Buffy Summers with a new Scooby Gang acting in middle school.

The 20th Century Fox-owned publishing house Boom! Studios picked up the license of the comics rom Dark Horse, debuting in 2019 the homonym Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. It’s described as the original television show reimagined for the year of 2019, with the number of issues yet to be revealed.
