"Giles: Beyond the Pale" is a comic book one-shot.


Giles had been Buffy's Watcher for four years when Watcher Michaela Tomasi notified him of the death of his former mentor, Archibald Lassiter. This drew him back to England. He found out that the Watchers Council was guarding a dark secret, which may cause the resurrection of the Old Ones. Though the Council did not want his help, Giles might be the one person who can prevent disaster.


The events took place after the episode "This Year's Girl" but before "Superstar" (and the "Jonathan: Codename: Comrades" comic).
