Fray is a futuristic spin-off of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Written by Buffy creator Joss Whedon, the series follows a Slayer named Melaka Fray, a chosen one in a time where vampires (called “lurks”) are returning to the slums of New York City, and the rich-poor divide is even greater. In a short video promoting the charity Equality Now Joss Whedon confirmed that “Fray is not done, Fray is coming back. More than that, I will not say.” This was reiterated in 2007’s Comic Con where Joss stated that he “absolutely would be returning to that world.” The series was closely linked to the concurrently airing seventh season of Buffy, with coinciding depictions of the Slayer’s mystical scythe and her origins, a major contributor to the expansion of the canonical “Buffyverse” in which Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other related stories are set. Melaka Fray also appears in the story “Tales”, by the same creative team as the series, in the anthology comic book Tales of the Slayers. Melaka “Mel” Fray – A 19-year-old thief and Vampire Slayer. Unlike other Slayers, she has had no prophetic dreams of her destiny or of the Slayers before her, and is now trying to figure out what her destiny as the Slayer entails.

Buzz Parker’s aesthetic and imagination is colored by his interest in pop surrealism, tree houses, illustrated gardening and comic books. He graduated from Humboldt State University in 1996 with a degree in Graphic Design and Printmaking. In 1998, Buzz partnered with Rob Reger’s Emily The Strange. Buzz is continually expanding Emily’s Secret Garden series with inspiration from his own backyard garden. His introspective Emily drawings and paintings have been shown throughout California, Berlin, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
