"Harmony Bites" is a short story of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight comic book series. Written by Jane Espenson and illustrated by Karl Moline, it was originally published on January 1, 2009, by Dark Horse Comics.


After the introduction of an episode of her show, Harmony Bites, Harmony will be interviewed for a bartending job at the House of Blues. When the interview is over, Harmony is confronted outside by a vampire named Justin, whom she sired four months prior. Resentful of his new status of undead and unable to tan, he attempts to stake Harmony with a piece of whitewashed picket fence. Harmony reverses the attack and dusts Justin.

Harmony calls Clem for a ride home. Although he was in the middle of a date with a fellow loose-skinned demon who had recently undergone plastic surgery, he comes to pick Harmony up. After dropping off Clem's date, the two go out on the town, where they begin to argue about the way Harmony treats people. A message from MTV invits viewers to text their thoughts on who is right, Harmony or Clem. Harmony drives Clem's car back home, and Clem waits for a bus ride. Both share their thoughts on how they will settle the matter, with Harmony deciding to just kill Clem.

When she arrives home, she lays in wait to drain Clem while he spends his time on the bus knitting a sweater. Clem arrives to a darkened apartment, where Harmony attempts to bite him, but instead she gets a mouthful of knitted sweater. The two laugh at the situation and resolve their differences. Harmony gets the job as a bartender at the House of Blues, to where she invited a bunch of Slayers for her first night.
