This July, when things are heating up outside, kick back with the coolest comic around!

Behind the ScenesEdit
- The photo cover features a promotional picture taken for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 3.
- Todd’s list of surnames in his notebook includes “Swanson”, a likely reference to actress Kristy Swanson, who played Buffy Summers in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
- Differently from other representations, at this point the comic issues had vampires also able to transform into green creatures with red eyes, pointy ears, a wide mouth, and long teeth. Although, this seems more like an artistic choice, not having direct consequence to the stories.
