    FIRST PRINTING. By DOUG PETRIE, JANE ESPENSON, GENE COLAN, and JEFF MATSUDA Following up the Tales of the Slayers graphic novel, Buffy TV writers Doug Petrie and Jane Espenson return with a tale of two Slayers: One, a young girl slumming through the bleak streets of 1930s New York City, and another, parading through the brighter streets of 1990s Sunnydale. This month marks fan-favorite cover-artist Jeff Matsuda's first story pages of Buffy Summers, both in this book and in Dark Horse's Reveal. Petrie again teams with his dream artist Gene Colan to show a Slayer facing the same creature as Buffy, but sixty years earlier. Two of the most popular writers from the television series team with one of the hot young stars of the comics and animation scene, and one of the greatest horror-comics artist of all time. For the occasion, we sprung for a special format and more story pages than just any old Buffy comic. On sale October 16 FC, 32pg (one-shot) . . . $3.50 Cover price $3.50.
