The Blood of Carthage is a trade paperback collecting issues 21-25 based on the Buffy television series.

Story description

Buffy's joining college but wonders whether education is necessary for a Slayer. Trying to deal with such issues, she overly involves herself with slaying with catastrophic results. When Sunnydale's version of Bigfoot is slain, it may call the rising of a demon named Ky-Laag, and potentially the end of the world. A mysterious group, the Blood of Carthage, hope to stop it, yet also try to kill Buffy for starting it all. What's a gal to do?



  • Supposed to be set early Buffy Season 4, whilst Buffy is still relatively new to College.
  • Also features flashbacks to the past friendship of Willow and Xander in 1987, 1989, and 1991.
