"Dead Love" is a short story of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series. Written by Andi Watson and illustrated by David Perrin, it was originally published on March 17, 1999 by Dark Horse Comics.


In "Dead Love" Giles does a little soul searching.[1]


Buffy browse through the books in the library when she comes up on one of Giles' diaries, from which she reads a story.

Giles is visiting San Francisco to get some books from the occult book dealer George Fogg, who is in a riven state after being visited by what appear to be ghouls. Together, Giles and Fogg start an investigation and manage to get a lead on an employee of the morgue and also one of Foggs customers, Jamie Agrafe. They confront Agrafe at his home and finds out that he have been using the occult to transfer the soul of his dead fiancée Mary to the bodies of recently deceased bodies he got from his work place at the morgue. Mary is reanimated but suffered under her unnatural existence, so she attacked Agrafe intending that both of them become together "on the other side."

As Buffy concludes reading the tale, Angel finally arrives and meet her at the library.
