Set to premiere next week, September 9, the site currently lists and profiles the characters of the story; the comic is expected to be updated weekly.

BTVS Season 8 Tales of the Vampire: The ThrillJune marked the first month in which Joss Whedon‘s Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight took a break from the familiar faces we have fallen in (and out) of love with to introduce the human-vampire co-existence brought upon by Harmony.
