Dark Horse Buffy Omnibus

Dark Horse will be offering two massive collections in the March Previews catalog. I thought this was the launch of their Omnibus line, but it turns out I wasn’t paying attention, and this is only the first month where one interests me.

That’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Omnibus Volume 1, 320 pages of the comic series for $25, due in July. They’re reprinting the stories in order by content, not when they were published, which means the volume contains The Origin, Viva Las Buffy, and Slayer, Interrupted. The last two storylines were done later in the run when they were trying to provide something the TV series couldn’t, so they started doing flashbacks and stories that filled in continuity. I enjoyed them for that reason, finding out more about the past and how Buffy became who she was.

Oddly, though, it’s only 6″ x 9″, which makes it digest-sized (more manga-like?). For that reason, I might stick with my previous set of collections — I’ll have to see what the final product looks like when it arrives. A full and complete reprint series is a great idea, though, since there are several Buffy comics from the previous run that still haven’t been collected.

Dark Horse also has offered omnibuses (omnibi?) for their Aliens and Star Wars series.

    See, this is how they should’ve collected Nexus, not those overpriced Archive books. You can pick up most of the series in quarter bins, for cryin’ out loud, so why shell out $50 a volume?

  2. Patrick Says:

    so if i understand this right, this book will cover (chronologically) the movie, content between the movie and beginning of the tv show, an also part or all of the comics released that are companion to the first season of the TV show, correct?

    I purchased the Aliens vs. Predator omnibus…and I’m assuming the Buffy omnibi will be in the same format. I think its really cool, the 6 by 9 format is pretty and the interior pages are all in color, which beats the crappy reprint style of the Marve and DC collections, which are all in black and white. Overall I am SOO EXCITED for this first volume.

    Oooh, neat, always glad to hear from someone who’s actually seen a similar product. I’m looking forward to seeing it myself.

    We have a “First Look” at the Buffy Omnibus at the following address:


    You can see 26 pages of the art before you run out and get it or order it from our website.
