Behind the Scenes


  • This issue celebrates the 34th Birthday of Buffy Summers with a special cover by Georges Jeanty.
  • The tile "Love Dares You" is based on a verse from Queen and David Bowie's song "Under Pressure".
  • Megan Levens debuts as guest artist for Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this issue.
  • About Dowling mentioning that he "and a lady from the L.A.P.D. really hit it off" on a convention of supernatural law enforcement agents, Christos Gage said: "The funny thing is that I did have in the back of my mind that it could be Kate [Lockey], but after talking with my editors I agree that it would be too coincidental for those characters to just happen to meet. If there were a specific story reason, great, but without Angel being part of the book, there’s not much mileage to get out of it. So, probably, we won’t see Dowling’s lady friend. But if you like to think it’s her, go nuts!"[2]
