Tales From The Buffyverse
Since Joss Whedon’s recent announcement, Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans have been clamoring for more info on the new Dark Horse comics. I’ve been asking around and I do have a few new tidbits. First, the new Buffy comic written by Whedon himself will come in the form of a four issue limited series, with further miniseries written by established comic pros and overseen by Whedon. The current talk is that Dark Horse is going for a “new look” with the new mini, but an artist hasn’t been chosen yet. Which brings me to my third point: the first mini may not even be coming out next year. Apparently the mini is in such an early stage that it’s not currently on Dark Horse’s 2006 slate. And given Whedon’s Hollywood commitments along with his Astonishing X-Men gig, a 2007 release date seems more likely.
Meanwhile, over at IDW, plans are in place for a series of one-shots to be released in 2006, which will focus on the supporting cast of Angel. The characters currently lined up for one-shots are Illyria, Conner, Doyle, Wesley and Gunn. The writers said to be attached are Peter David, Dan Jolley, Scott Tipton, Jeff Mariotte and Jay Faerber. Though it’s not clear yet which writers will be paired with their respective characters…
