"Freefall" is the first volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine trade paperbacks, collecting issues one to five of the comic book series, as well as the short story Magical Mystery Tour, Featuring the Beetles.
Season 8 ended with a bang that cut the world off from magic – culminating in another set of world-ending problems. Buffy has left her best friend, Willow, powerless, and brought an end to a millennia-long tradition of superpowered girls. By day, Buffy is a twenty-something waitress with no real direction, and even though magic is gone, she’s still a vampire Slayer by night. Bigger problem? Vampires are becoming an epidemic... Of zompires!
