Sunnydale High School was extraordinarily hard for its students, beyond just the typical trials and tribulations that come with being a high school teenager. No, those students were forced to contend with all manner of monster, demon and evil entity. Dark Horse thinks that all makes for good theater though and return to high school in Buffy: The High School Years - Glutton for Punishment by Kel McDonald and Yishan Li.
Set during season one of the television series and executive produced by Joss Whedon, Glutton for Punishment continues the humor and excitement as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her friends navigate the tumultuous balance of being both high schoolers and monster fighters. When Buffy and Xander sign up for home ec, assuming it will be an extra-credit cakewalk, they aren’t aware that the teacher is a ravenous tiger demon in disguise. The demon’s unquenchable appetite has him kidnapping his top students and forcing them to cook for him, and when Xander claims some store-bought treats are his own creations, he becomes the demon’s next victim! It’s not enough that Buffy has to keep her grades up, but she also has to rescue her friends and fellow students—and give the tiger demon his just desserts!
