"Predators and Prey" is the fifth volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight trade paperbacks, collecting issues twenty-one to twenty-five of the comic book series, as well as the short stories Harmony Bites and Vampy Cat Play Friend, and the promotional feature HARM.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Buffy’s world goes awry when former-classmate-turned-vampire Harmony Kendall lands her own reality TV show, Harmony Bites, bolstering bloodsucking fiends in the mainstream. Humans line up to have their blood consumed, and Slayers, through a series of missteps, misfortunes, and anti-Slayer propaganda driven by the mysterious Twilight, are forced into hiding.

In Germany, Faith and Giles discover a town where Slayers retreat from a world that has turned against them, only to find themselves in the arms of something far worse. A rogue-Slayer faction displaces an entire Italian village, living up to their tarnished reputation as power-hungry thieves. And finally, with the help of a would-be demon lover, Dawn addresses her unfaltering insecurities.[1]
