For those unaware, Rogues Gallery was a comic book story that was only published in the Diamond monthly Previews Magazine from March 1999 through February 2000. It ran two pages per issue for twelve issues, and was never reprinted or collected anywhere else.

It was never properly archived.

I spent quite a bit of time and money tracking down a complete set (well, eventually almost two complete sets and change... but that's another story).

I contacted editor Scott Allie before scanning them, and this is what he had to say
You should just post it, with that quote
from me the validate the fact that this is the only way for
people to read it. And thank you for asking. But I don’t
represent Dark Horse, so I can’t speak for them, but I
don’t see what concern they’d have. It’s actually 20th
Century Fox’s property, and they don’t police this sort
of thing very closely.
The quote he is referencing is here:
21. curiouswolf: I have a question about the Buffy omnibuses: why was that one Buffy comic "Rogues' Gallery" by Andi Watson that was serialized in the Preview catalogs not reprinted in any of volumes set in season 3?

Scott Allie: Good question. We didn't have the material in the proper format. It was a weird project, and hadn't been properly archived.

If any actual IP holder has an issue with this I will gladly take it down. Please let me know.

But failing that, and without further delay, here is the comic:
buffycompressed.zip

My apologies, but parts 13 and 14 were reversed in order and I didn't catch it until after the upload, so please take that into account.

Enjoy.

Nice! Yeah, I emailed a woman from DarkHorse a few weeks ago about this. She’s directly responsible for handling any copyright issues. But she never emailed me back, so I’ve been in limbo. I suppose they don’t care though, since they lose the license at the end of the year.
I also have high res scans, but yours might be better if the zip file size is over 300 mb. My total file size for the scans is about 90 mb. If anyone’s looking for smaller PDFs, let me know and I’ll host them somewhere. Thanks again man!

Damn nice! I honestly didn't care about this story, but it's really neat to be able to read something that I never thought I'd be able to read.

Hey. Sorry for slight thread necromancy but I'm looking to acquire these editions of Previews myself. It seems difficult to find information online but I do have leads. Are you able to upload pictures of the covers at all so I know I'm looking at the right ones? Cheers 😀

I found these online since I didn't keep any parts of the magazines except the Buffy story itself. Each magazine has one cover, and then the back of the magazine is flipped upside down with the other cover.

March 1999 (part 1 of 12):

April 1999 (part 2 of 12):

May 1999 (part 3 of 12):

June 1999 (part 4 of 12):

July 1999 (part 5 of 12):

August 1999 (part 6 of 12):

September 1999 (part 7 of 12):

October 1999 (part 8 of 12):

November 1999 (part 9 of 12):

December 1999 (part 10 of 12):

January 2000 (part 11 of 12):

February 2000 (part 12 of 12):

Thanks so much for this. I've come across 8 out of the 12 on ebay for £8 something each but wasn't sure they were the right ones. I've ordered them now so only missing March, April, July and October editions. Thanks again for your help!
