Freefall is the first volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine trade paperbacks, collecting issues one to five of the comic book series and a short story. It was originally published on July 4, 2012, by Dark Horse Comics.


Season 8 ended with a bang that cut the world off from magic — culminating in another set of world-ending problems. Buffy has left her best friend, Willow, powerless, and brought an end to a millennia-long tradition of superpowered girls. By day, Buffy is a twenty-something waitress with no real direction, and even though magic is gone, she's still a vampire Slayer by night. Bigger problem? Vampires are becoming an epidemic... Of zompires![1]
