"Prologue" was the first story in the "Tales of the Slayers" graphic novel.
Sineya, the first Slayer, fought a vampire just outside of an African village. Afterward a young village woman came to her and offered her food and informed her that, though the village elders were grateful, they wanted her to leave because she was part demon. The girl told Sineya that was also the reason for the Shadow Men to create only one Slayer, and that when she died, another girl would be chosen and so forth, forever. Silent, Sineya simply left, filled with confusion and pity but also with some comfort.
Prologue was the earliest full story; it was only preceded chronologically by flashbacks. The story was set after the flashback(s) from "Get It Done", but before the flasback(s) from "Portal Through Time".
