Annotation: Buffy and the gang have been pulled underground, where she has to fight in a gladiator ring against an even crazier variety of foes than usual. Angel and Faith come to lend a hand, but there are more surprise faces from Buffy’s past.
In this installment of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic series, Buffy and company are held in the old Initiative grounds. Apparently killing somebody once just isn’t good enough anymore, as spirits of old friends and old enemies are back in this place.
With some help from an old friend, Buffy escapes the gladiator ring in which she’s been kept, to stop a soul sucking drug operation and—most importantly—save her family.
With blasts from the past, both dead and alive, this one’s got quite the ensemble—great for master Buffy fans, but fun for anyone who wants to see a demon get its butt kicked.
