"The Core" is a trade paperback collecting issues twenty-one to twenty-five of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine comic book series.
When Dawn falls ill, it’s up to best friends Buffy, Xander, and Willow to join forces and find a supernatural cure in a world sorely lacking magic. The trio must fight their way into the Deeper Well, the former home of Illyria and other ancient deities known as the Old Ones, where they hope to jump-start magic back into existence.
