The Reckoning is a trade paperback collecting all four issues of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve comic book miniseries. It was published in December 12, 2018 by Dark Horse Comics.


Angel brings news of an amassing evil force — Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, vampire from the future — to Buffy and her crew. Realizing this fight will be more than they can handle alone, the gang travels to the future to recruit the Slayer Fray — Harth's twin sister — and learn of their dismal fate should they fail in the ultimate battle with Harth and his legion. He is after the power of the Slayers… this is the reckoning… and it could be the end of Buffy, Fray, and all the Slayers, forever.[1]
