Template:Article As with tie-in materials related to Star Trek, Star Wars, and other prolific sci-fi/fantasy franchises, most Buffyverse fans (and the show's creators themselves) acknowledge the Buffy and Angel TV episodes as absolute canon.

Canonical comics

A few of the comics are considered by many fans to achieve canon.

  • Fray, an eight-part comic series written by Whedon, is also largely accepted as a canonical work. The story is about a vampire slayer of the future named Melaka Fray and her discovery of what being a slayer means. In the Buffyverse, it seems that a powerful scythe used by Buffy will be found in centuries to come by Melaka. Whedon has also written an Angel comic book mini-series, Long Night's Journey.
  • The Origin, a four-part comic series written by Christopher Golden and Dan Brereton had its canonality affirmed by Whedon who stated: "The origin comic, though I have issues with it, CAN pretty much be accepted as canonical. They did a cool job of combining the movie script (the SCRIPT) with the series, that was nice, and using the series Merrick." [1]

Several of the comics have been written by the scriptwriters of Mutant Enemy Productions, and do not often contradict any information from the Buffyverse canon. Some fans argue that any/all of these might also be considered canon. For example:

  • Jane Espenson has written a number of Buffy comics, including the graphic novel Haunted and the one-shots Jonathan, and Reunion.
