Twenty-three years ago, we were introduced again to Buffy Summers and her friends in beautiful (but deadly) Sunnydale, California.
Buffy first appeared in pop culture in 1992 movie starring Kristy Swanson, Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens and Rutger Hauer.
Buffy the television show would premiere some five years later on March 10, 1997 on new network, The WB. The show would run for 7 seasons with total of 144 episodes ending in 2003.
The show also spawned a spin-off and a comic book. The show, Angel, focused on one of Buffy’s boyfriend who moved to Los Angeles to work as private detective.
The comic book continued the story lines from the television. It was published from 2007 to 2018.
