Buffy Zone Updated. Scott Allie posted some new Season 8 goodness, as well as an alternate cover for #4.

Love the alternate cover for issue 4, is the regular cover for issue four even online yet?
Not yet but I'm betting will be Giles.
I hope so, the other three got covers to themselves, well except Xander, he's kinda sharing his one.
Hmm, not so great Willow and Buffy's ok but that's a really good likeness of Xander. It's fun to see these rolling out.
Willow looks great, Xander suddenly has jet black hair, and Buffy's face doesn't look right. Not much SMG resemblance.
Also I'm suprised they brought back Paul Lee considering that Scott Allie said he wanted to reboot Buffy with a fresh start and get rid of the old. It'd be great if they could also bring back Cliff Richards for an issue. I'm excited for Paul Lee. He and BRian Horton have so far been the best artists at capturing the resemblances of the charcters
Anybody else think,"Superman Returns" when they saw Buffy's belt on that cover?
I liked Ryan Sook's stuff. I know he's not everyone's cup of tea but the artwork for Ring of Fire wowed me. In particular these Giles centric pages: 1, 2, 3 and 4.
For some reason I thought that Joss's first arc was going to be five issues, so I got a little confused why they'd switch artists just at the end of an arc and have him continue immediately afterward.

I never knew that Jeanty was going to be the primary artist for the series/season though, I assumed they'd have different artists lined up with different writers.
HOT. Seriously. They all look amazing. Willow kind of looks like she stepped back into the 1600's, but ti works for her. Buffy look s great though, great to see she still has good fashion sense.

Joss's first arc is four issues.Issue five is a standalone story by him.Georges Jeanty I believe is doing the first four issue arc with Joss.Paul Lee comes in for the issue 5 standalone by Joss.Then Georges Jeanty is back for the next arc with Brian K. Vaughan.After that,we will probably have other artist for the other arcs but Jeanty will probably be back for some more as well.I wouldn't be surprised if he's the artist for Joss's other two arcs.

I am really excited to see The Scoobies in Tokyo. That is too cool, and also an old villian! I'm hoping for Drusilla. Also excited for the Joss arc announcement that will make us lose our minds.
It's great that Joss is so excited to be writing Buffy Season 8 that he's even doing extra issues.
Nice, nice.

Can't wait to see the actual #4 cover!
I can't wait for #5.

And Joss' second arc? Yeah, I feel like I haven't lost my mind for ages. It's about time...
Drew Goddard, yes!
Willow looks very Pageny, Buffy looks very modern-day Zena (think its the colour of the top, and the fact it looks almost like a breastplate) and Xander looks like everyday-wear Action Man.

Still looking forward to it though :D (And the drawings are excellent, I just moan about everything)
For who might be interested, CBR got a more detailed article on the Dark Horse Panel at New York Comic Con, over Here, just roll down until you find the cover for Buffy, the Vampire Slayer #1.

Some extra tidbits, like how other non-show writers got to be involded in the series. Very Cool read.

Very cool to have Paul Lee back. (The covers he painted with Brian Horton were even better than the Jo Chen ones, in my opinion.)

Willow's dress here looks like her OMWF dress to me.

And it's cool to finally have confirmed that Georges is doing more than one arc. Consistency in the art can be so important to the feel of a series. And getting consistency with a good artist is just bonus, of course. :-)
A little Off Topic, I know #1 got pushed back the the 14th, but TFAW has the release for the 21st, is it a mistake or is the world coming to an end?
You're right, hitnrun017. Darn. I'm so excited about this debut issue that hearing that it may be pushed back yet another week feels like more of a blow than it normally might. Let's hope the TFAW info is a typo. Dark Horse still has the March 14th date.
That was a good read Numfar PTB. 30-40 issues! Is that the highest number touted for this series so far?
Nope, I tout Infinity (and beyond) !

OK, i'm no-one and i'm pretty sure you can't use 'tout' in that way and infinity issues is impossible but i'm still hopeful. Or was it delusional ? Can't remember what the voices said now ...

(the very personal #5 sounds most intriguing. Can't wait)
