Slayer, Interrupted, Part Three is the fifty-eighth issue of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series. It was written by Scott Lobdell and Fabian Nicieza and illustrated by Cliff Richards.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Most people would find life in a mental institution unsettling enough, but for the Slayer things are even worse. She assumed the girls who said they were brides to the demon Rakagore were just crazy – but when Rakagore actually shows up, the only thing more bizarre than his appearance is who he was hiding behind.
Continuity[edit | edit source]

- Buffy, Dawn, and Joyce Summers are yet to move to Sunnydale, making this story previous to the series' debut episode "Welcome to the Hellmouth."
