Whedonites are renowned throughout pop culture circles for their diehard dedication. From mounting one of the most impressive TV campaigns of all time, to helping “The Avengers” set box office records, not to mention the countless original works and academic studies, Whedon supporters continue to find new and creative ways to highlight the genius of Joss.

Greetings Buffy buffs, and welcome to another clever critique of written works in the Whedonverse!
Having reviewed several of the Buffy novels, I’ve decided to shift my focus and examine another merry medium— the Dark Horse Buffy comic books!
|*sings "Dark Horse, Dark Horse..."|
Originally published from 1998-2003, the initial run of Buffy comics was set in the then-current second season of the show and had little-to-no involvement from Joss. Over this five-year period, the authors began to branch out from the TV timeline and started drafting stories that filled in the gaps to various parts of the Buffy mythos.
Rather than examining each of these comics individually (for both time and financial reasons) I’m going to be reviewing the trade paperbacks that contain several issues in one collection. And what better anthology to analyze than “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus, Vol. 1!”
