The series was published by Dark Horse Comics beginning in 2001, with delays between the first six and the final two issues caused by Whedon's TV commitments, during which Moline illustrated Route 666 for CrossGen Comics. After the series' conclusion in August 2003, a trade paperback collecting the whole series was also published by Dark Horse.

She holds herself responsible for what happened to her brother, and is now trying to figure out what her destiny as the Slayer entails. Fray on Wikipedia
