Meanwhile, Buffy begins to question her relationship with Angel. And just what do Selke and the Doctor have in store for the ancient Slayer relic they hold in their possession?[1]

Behind the scenes


  • The photo cover features a promotional picture taken for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 3.
  • From this issue on, vampires are no longer represented as they were since Wu-Tang Fang: able to transform into green creatures with red eyes, pointy ears, a wide mouth, and long teeth. Although, this seems more like an artistic choice, not having direct consequence to the stories.
  • Spike and Drusilla debut in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic main series, having previously appeared in comics in one-shots Spike and Dru: Paint the Town Red and Spike and Dru: The Queen of Hearts.


  • Love Sick Blues, Part Two was the 73th best selling comic issue in its publishing month, with 33,949 sales in October 1999 at comic specialty stores.[2]
