Tales of the Vampires, Part Four is the fourth issue of the "Tales of the Vampires" mini-series. It contains a frame story of same title, as well as the short stories Dust Bowl and Taking Care of Business.


In Joss Whedon’s continuing serial, a group of precocious young Watchers is schooled on the mysteries and treacheries of vampires. Ben Edlund, creator of The Tick and current staff writer on Whedon’s Angel show, returns to comics with a cover and a story this issue, once again pointing to Whedon’s world as the ultimate melting pot of TV and comic books.[1]
