"Bad Blood" is the third volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic trade paperbacks, collecting issues nine to eleven of the comic book series.


Buffy the next runway supermodel? Believe it! Buffy pursues a potential modeling career only to learn that beauty isn’t just skin deep. Selke, the vampire Buffy thought was killed in a mausoleum fire, returns with a vengeance, and convinces a plastic surgeon to find a solution to her “cosmetic” complaints. She’s back, and she’s out for blood literally! Expanding the mythos of television’s hottest horror/adventure series, "Bad Blood" is high-stakes graphic-novel entertainment served up Buffy-style![1]
