The Remaining Sunlight is the first volume of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic trade paperbacks, collecting issues one to three of the comic book series and one short story. It was originally published on March 24, 1999, by Dark Horse Comics.


For 17-year-old Buffy Summers, slaying vampires is as common as doing homework — except she has better luck fighting the undead than writing term papers! This volume collects the wildly popular first three issues of the comic-book series based on the hit television show. Included, at no extra charge, is the hard-to-find Dark Horse Presents 10-page adventure, presented in color for the first time. Hurry, while supplies last![1]
