"Glutton for Punishment" is the second graphic novel of Buffy: The High School Years comic book series. Joss Whedon is the executive producer.


If you’re cheatin’, you’re eaten!

When Buffy and Xander sign up for Home Ec, assuming it will be an extra-credit cakewalk, they aren’t aware that the teacher is a ravenous tiger demon in disguise! When he’s found to be kidnapping his top students and forcing them to cook for him, Buffy must rescue her fellow students – and give the tiger demon his just desserts![1]


This story takes place during Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 1, specifically prior to "The Pack," as Principal Flutie is still alive and present.

  • Xander mentions Disneyland.
  • Buffy compares herself to Betty Crocker, a fictional character used in advertising campaigns for food and recipes.
  • Xander mentions fictional superhero Superman, and his planet's element, Krypton.
  • Xander mentions Hell's Kitchen, a cookery reality TV show, first aired in 2004 (in the UK) and 2005 (in the USA).This may be considered a mistake, since this story takes place during the first season of Buffy, in 1997.
