Although Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel have both ended, new stories set in creator Whedon's "Buffyverse" continue to appear in comics published by Dark Horse. Whedon and several of his shows' writers-Ben Edlund, Jane Espenson and Drew Goddard-contribute to this new collection of stories about vampires, set in disparate times and places.

This is a graphic novel with twelve unique vampire stories that fit into the buffyverse continuity. Each tale is framed by one continuous story by Joss Whedon. The stories are by different authors and illustrated by different artists. Some work better than others. My favorites are "Father," "The Problem with Vampires," "Numb" and the story that weaves in and out of the collection, "Tales of the Vampires."

A group of young watcher trainees listen to a vampire tell the tales gathered in this anthology. The first story, "Father," is a son remembering his father. I enjoyed "The Problem with Vampires" because two of my favorite vampires are featured, Dru and Spike. "Numb" shows how Angel struggles to keep control of Angelus. The dialog in "Antique" was funny, but I didn't like how Xander was portrayed

"Tales of the Vampire" is an only mildly interesting mix of vampire stories, and if you buy this book for the writing you're going to be disappointed, as I was. There are many distinctive art styles displayed in the book, and that's an excellent reason to buy it if you want more visual variety than was permitted in the TV show format. However, the collection ultimately isn't a major addition to the assembled lore of the BuffyVerse, unlike the Season 8 stories.

The wraparound story that rationalizes the existence of all the others provides a glimpse into watcher training of yore, and that's about it despite occupying the biggest chunk of the book. A couple others ("Father", "The Problem With Vampires") attempt to explain how soulless vampires can maintain emotional, loving, attachments to others. "Jack" posits vampire activity to flesh out the story of "Jack the Ripper"; "Numb" gives a glimpse into Angel's mind around the time of "Amends", the Season 3 BtVS story in which snow came to Sunnydale; and "Antique" is an epilogue to "Buffy vs. Dracula". For 12 total stories there's just not much that's memorable. One in particular is pretty much a Dr. Seuss-like rhyme.

Mostly, though, "Tales of the Vampire" is about the art much more than the stories. Several of the story authors (Joss Whedon, Jane Espenson, Drew Goddard, Brett Matthews) repeat, but the artists are all unique. There's an additional gallery of full-page panels without text at the end of the book, featuring works by another 5 artists and 2 colorists. So this book is just chock full of distinctive artwork, and if you're looking for artistic range you may be delighted. The stories, alas, get short shrift.

I grew up reading japanese mangas and therefore not very into american comic books in general. At least that was my impression about classics such as Superman or Spiderman. Hence I am very nicely surprised when I received and read my copies of Tales of the Slayers (not to be confused with the Tales of the Slayer Series) and Tales of the Vampires. Both books are mostly written by the writers on the BTVS show. Both books are very much similar in style and in quality. I put down the comparison so that people who had read the other book can get a rough idea how this book is.

Each story is a very well-structured short story with interesting twist. Sophiscted enough for adult readers such as myself. It is fun to see the diverse styles in art and in script in this book. I like that the art plays just as important a part as the story. It's very similar to the kind of manga I read, only that this is even more fun since it is in full color.

A plus for the Buffyverse fans. Angel, Spike and Drusilla, together with Giles' parents are featured in this book. There is also a hilarious story starring Dracula, Xander and Buffy Summers!

I wish to see Joss Whedon and team writing more vampire stories, and I can't wait for the sequal in the Fray series to come out soon enough.

The comic arrived, as described, and on time. It was a fun read for a Buffy fan. The cover was a little worn-out, but that was no worse than what was described in the description. It arrived on the last day of the time-frame predicted, but that was totally fine. I recommend this seller.
Cordanius
Excellent for Buffy and Vampire fans!

Very cool comic book. I enjoyed it a lot, I received it in perfect condition. Quick read, keeps you interested.

Absent the Buffy series this is the closest we can come (along with the Buffy Season 8 comics)
in addition to being a nice little pick-me-up for buffy junkies, the work is well written beautifully illustrated. I would recommend it to anyone with a penchant for any comic reader.
