New Hardcover Collection: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales
A new entry popped up Amazon showing a hardcover collection called Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales, scheduled to arrive in January. It looks like it will contain the stories from Tales of the Slayer, Tales of the Vampires, as well as the Season 8 Tales of the Vampires one-shot and Tales of the Vampires: Carpe Noctem short story.
Update: I also confirmed with Scott Allie that it will include the hard-to-find Tales of the Slayers: Broken Bottle of Djinn, by Jane Espenson and Doug Petrie.
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.
