Buffy, in desperate need of a vacation is convinced by Spike to join him and his bug crew for a “spacecation”. While for most a vacation involving a peroxided vampire and his extra-large insects may not seem ideal, for Buffy, it’s just par for the course. All is not good during her space travels though, when it comes to light that bugs may not be immune to zompire attacks. An Alienesque bug anytime would be no fun but trapped on a spaceship with one may be even worse!

The Guild: Beach’d

The second half of the comic is The Guild: Beach’d. The Guildies regular hangout, Cheesy Beards, has closed, turning their world upside down and creating a lot of strife between The Guild. They all make suggestions (most of them anyway, Tink thinks they should just stop meeting altogether) but they can’t agree on anything. As a solution, war amongst them breaks out and the last man standing gets to pick the new location. After some intense battle it’s decided that the next meeting will be held at the beach! This of course doesn’t make everyone happy (Codex is covered head to toe) and they all make a mess of things in a way that only The Guild crew could. In the end though they find a solution that appeases everyone and it’s a guarantee that nobody has ever seen anything like it at the beach!
