Canonical issues

Buffy/Angel books such as this one are not usually considered by fans as canonical. However, unlike fan fiction, overviews summarizing their story, written early in the writing process, were approved by both Fox and Joss Whedon (or his office), and the books were therefore later published as officially Buffy/Angel merchandise.

Pop culture references

The title is similar toThe Death of Superman.

Behind the secenes

Characters include Willow, Xander, Spike, Dawn, Tara, Anya, Giles and Buffy.
