Production[edit | edit source]

We became fixated with the number three, leading to a three-issue story with a three-word title, Ugly Little Monsters. Interior pages had three panels, triangular compositions, and triadic color schemes. Covers featured three main characters, as well as the three little uglies."
- The photo cover features a promotional picture taken for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 4.
