BOOM! Studios solicitation for Buffy The Vampire Slayer: The Lost Summer one-shot states:
“Spike is determined to keep the last copy of his embarrassing poetry from being discovered, sending Buffy and the gang on a faux-supernatural goose chase to New Orleans to cover his tracks. While at an antiques fair along the way, the group is captivated by The Casquette Girls’ clothes on display. Dawn utters a wish she most likely should’ve kept to herself, and the gang experiences a first hand account of the sisters’ identities…beyond what they could have ever imagined!”
