Personal Life

Krueger and his daughter were already both fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show, in special Buffy Summers:

“What I love about Buffy is that it’s all got to do with the fact that, despite everything that happens, she’s still a girl. Joss and his teams of writers have created this girl who never loses herself to the fight. And that’s really admirable. I often think that this is the problem with say, Wonder Woman. Despite the costume, despite the curves, she’s not really a girl. She’s not allowed to mess up in relationships the way a girl would, not allowed to love someone she shouldn’t, not able to really be human. And that’s what makes Buffy really great. And that’s why so many of her enemies become her friends throughout the series. She’s a hero certainly because of her actions, because of what she has lost to do the right thing. And because she hasn’t stopped doing the right thing even after no one has really noticed that she’s been saved. Think of the X-Men. I don’t really care that they’re different. I care that they do the right thing even though they’re hated. I also think part of the heroic journey is being caught up into a bigger story than your own. And there’s always a cost for that. For Buffy, it’s a normal life, a normal love, a normal peace.”[1]

Krueger has also revealed a pitch he once offered for Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics:

“After Dark Horse had gone through its first major run of Buffy comics [as Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic], I pitched them on the idea of a ‘Buffy’ limited series that would act as an overview of all seven Buffy series, all from the perspective of Giles – sort of a watcher’s view of Buffy’s growth as a hero and Seasons 1–7 retrospective. This idea, while pitched, somehow led to the creation of Season 8. I think someone at Dark Horse told me I somehow got some sort of ball rolling even though I can’t imagine how I had anything to do with it.”[1]
