Before Season 8, Joss Whedon brought generations of Slayers and vampires to comics with the help of his acclaimed TV writing team and some of the best artists to ever grace the comics page. Now all those stories, plus selected stories from Season 8, are collected in one deluxe hardcover with a new cover by Jo Chen. Joss writes multiple tales: a somber vamp tale drawn by Cameron Stewart, the story of the first Slayer drawn by Leinil Yu, and more. This essential complement to Season 8 features stories written by Buffy actress Amber (Tara) Benson and the amazing writers of the show, including David Fury (24, Lost), Doug Petrie (Tru Calling, CSI), Jane Espenson (Battlestar Galactica), Rebecca Sinclair (Gilmore Girls), Drew Goddard (Lost, Cloverfield, Cabin in the Woods), Drew Greenberg (Dexter) and The Tick creator Ben Edlund (Venture Bros., Supernatural). Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales also reprints for the first time new Season 8 stories written by novelist Jackie Kessler (Hell's Belles) and award-winning cartoonist Becky Cloonan (Demo), featuring vampires living in the public eye, killing Slayers and killing each other.
