"MacGuffins" is a comic book story based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was published in the Dark Horse Presents: Annual 1998 comic book, and it's the first Buffy comic story.


While Buffy Summers was on summer vacation at her father's house in Los Angeles, two MacGuffins made a bet with Rupert Giles that she could beat the 561 A.D. record of the Slayer, Garnhuld, by two days. She beat the record, but fell two hours short of winning the bet for Giles. After solving the puzzle, Buffy sent the MacGuffins back to Giles to get even.


  • This story is set immediately after Season One.
