Synopsis

Hundreds of years in the future, Manhattan has become a deadly slum, run by mutant crime-lords and disinterested cops. Stuck in the middle is a young girl who thought she had no future, but learns she has a great destiny. In a world so poisoned that it doesn't notice the monsters on its streets, how can a street kid like Fray unite a fallen city against a demonic plot to consume mankind? Joss Whedon, the celebrated creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, brings his vision to the future in this unique tale. As inventive in the comics medium as in that of television or film, Whedon spins a complex tale of a skilled thief coming of age without the help of friends or family, guided only by a demonic Watcher. * Joss Whedon, creator of Fray and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has been nominated for Nebula, Hugo and Emmy Awards as well as an Oscar!

So when an enormous, goat-hoofed demon shows up at Fray's apartment, she's not terribly fazed, but she certainly isn't ready for his message: she, Melaka Fray, is destined to kill vampires.

There's also a beautiful sketch of Buffy, comparing her to Fray, which I stared at for a while since it was a really really good sketch of Buffy.

The first thing I’d like to say about Fray is simply that I loved this comic book so much, I actually started reading it all over again right after finishing it.

You know how you can meet some people and just get an ick vibe and then the next time you cross their path you get more of a warm 'n fuzzy vibe?

This being a spin off from the Buffy The Vampire Slayer universe I read this with no knowledge of modern Buffy TV or comics , so this was a stand alone story to me and it works fine as a stand alone book.
