    Hey guys. I've been reading season 8 like a mad man, my mom bought me them for my birthday and I'm just getting around to it; and when I'm done I have nothing else to read until I attain season 9. Problem is, I don't know where I can get Season 9 Volume 1 in my city.. Do you guys know of any place that would sell it whether it be in person, or online, for cheap? I'm even open to buying a used copy from one of you guys! I live in Canada so don't suggest places like Barnes and Nobles.
    Thanks.


    EDIT:
    I am even open to buying single issues if the prices are cheap.

    Remember that season 9 is actually two series... Buffy and Angel & Faith, and they both have their own books.

    Don't know how cheap you were hoping to get them. Amazon Canada has them all and it looks like the cheapest ones offered by third-party sellers are about half the cover price.

    Is there a guide on which way to read them, like there is for BtVS and AtS? Or is it just read one then the next...

    I would read them in this order:

    1. Angel & Faith, Vol. 1: Live Through This
    2. Buffy, Vol. 1: Freefall
    3. Angel & Faith, Vol. 2: Daddy Issues
    4. Buffy, Vol. 2: On Your Own
    5. Spike: A Dark Place
    6. Angel & Faith, Vol. 3: Family Reunion
    7. Buffy, Vol. 3: Guarded
    8. Willow: Wonderland
    9. Angel & Faith, Vol. 4: Death and Consequences
    10. Buffy, Vol. 4: Welcome to the Team
    11. Angel & Faith, Vol. 5: What You Want, Not What You Need
    12. Buffy, Vol. 5: The Core

    I'd agree, this season is much less confusing in terms of chronology, so it is just a case of reading the first Buffy, then the first Angel and Faith, followed by the second Buffy, then the second Angel and Faith, and so on and so on...

    And making sure the Spike and Willow miniseries get read in their proper places, after they leave the main story and before they return to it.

    And the season reads better if it ends on Buffy rather than Angel & Faith, I think, which is why I would start with the first A&F book.

    Good point, I'd forgotten about the miniseries, and it is better to end with Buffy, from what I've read online, as I haven't actually read the last Buffy issue as my comic book shop forgot to order it, and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered
