BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER FAITH #1
THE FUTURE OF THE BUFFYVERSE BEGINS HERE!
The future of the Buffyverse begins in an all-new one-shot revealing the secrets of Faith the Vampire Slayer. With no Watcher, no idea how to harness the power in her, and no idea where it came from, Faith has fallen back on old habits -and morals – to guide her. But what happens when those morals don’t line up with the Council’s… or with Buffy’s? The origin of Faith is revealed here for the first time, with a shocking ending to this issue! A perfect jumping-on point for new and longtime Buffy fans alike that sets the stage for shocking events to come.
