"Slayer, Interrupted" is the sixteenth volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic trade paperbacks, collecting issues fifty-five to fifty-nine of the comic book series.


Buffy Summers has burned down the school gym, run off to Vegas, and filled her diary with tales of vampires and demons — her parents see no other choice than to have her committed to a mental institution. During her stay, Buffy finds that she likes not having to slay vampires and demons night after night. But there's something sinister going on here as some of the doctors may not be what they appear. Meanwhile, in England, Rupert Giles' use of black magic has stopped a corrupt Watcher from destroying the Council.

Plus: Paul Lee's hilarious Dawn adventure, in which the Slayer's baby sister is mistaken for the Chosen One, and teams with a demonic stuffed bear.[1]
