The Reckoning, Part One is the first issue of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve" comic book miniseries. It was written by Christos Gage and Joss Whedon, and illustrated by Georges Jeanty. Joss Whedon is the executive producer.


It’s one year later, and the lives of Buffy and the Scoobies haven’t been too eventful for a while — at least as far as fighting demons and the forces of darkness are concerned. But that’s all about to change when Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is interrupted by some familiar faces bringing news of familiar foes from the future. Can you say Harth… and Fray?

  • The return of Fray!
  • The Reckoning will be the culmination of all the Buffy seasons![1]
