Dawn and Hoopy the Bear
Continuing the look into Buffy's life before Sunnydale, we take a detour with Dawn. A mysterious package is accidentally delivered to the younger Summers sister, and the enchanted teddy bear Hoopy wreaks havoc upon the life of the little ten-year-old. Intended to destroy the Slayer, the gift leads Dawn unwittingly into her first adventure, years before she'd ever be accepted into the Scooby gang.
It's the all-Paul Lee issue! Paul Lee, creator of Lurid and longtime cover artist on the Buffy series, writes, draws, colors, and letters this special, hilarious issue.
