Omnibus: Volume 5” is the fifth volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic trade paperbacks, collecting issues twenty-one to twenty-eight, as well as the miniseries "Haunted" and "Oz", and the short stories Take Back the Night and Killing Time.


Volume Five of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus series begins immediately after Season Three, after Sunnydale High has gone up in flames. Buffy is plagued by dreams of fellow Slayer Faith, who now lies in a comma. Jane Espenson, the celebrated writer from the Buffy TV show, writes the powerful Faith story “Haunted”. And as summer comes to an end, Buffy and Willow begin their first year of college in “The Blood of Carthage”, in a story written by acclaimed Buffy novelist Christopher Golden. Meanwhile Buffy embarks on a new romance with Riley Finn, and Willow and Oz's relationship comes to an end in Golden's “Oz: Into the Wild”. This volume also features work by Buffy Season Eight contributors Cliff Richards and Paul Lee and Brian Horton.[1]
