Hellmouth to Mouth, Part Three
Hellmouth to Mouth, Part Four was a comic, a story based on the Buffy television series.
Buffy finally rescues Xander and Dawn from the crew that's nearly destroyed Sunnydale—The Scourge! They soon find that the only thing worse than the Scourge is their secret leader, revealed this issue! Buffy's not just fighting for her friends' and family's lives, she's fighting for a chance to live her own life, to be more than a fearless vampire hunter. Who better to have backing her up than former sadistic Slayer Faith and the vampire hunting vampire himself, Angel?!
Behind the Scenes
- This issue the 50th Buffy comic of the first run, published by Dark Horse.
- This issue also includes a short story called "Mall Rats" by Andi Watson, and a prose story called "The First Time" by Scott Lobdell, with illustrations by Paul Lee.
- This is the last issue on continuity with the TV Show. Editor Scott Allie explained in the Omnibus: Volume 7 Introduction: "Scott Lobdell pitched me a story that I liked, and once the idea was approved by our contact at Fox a first script was written called "Note from the Underground". But then Lobdell heard something through the grapevine - apparently Joss's plans for Season 7 were very similar to "Note from the Underground". I got a hold of Joss [Whedon], gave him a quick rundown of the story, and he said, "Yeah, you probably shouldn't do that." Joss didn't necessarily see licensed material back then [...] We had to come up with another story. So the story [...] is Note from the Underground Take Two, and the mad scramble to complete the story led to the decision to follow it up by jumping out of continuity and throwing the series back to just before Buffy moved to Sunnydale, which is why there's no Season 7 stories."

- Based on the television show created by Joss Whedon
