NYCC: Buffy and Angel & Faith to return for 10th ‘season’

Dark Horse Comics will be bringing back the popular vampire hunter and her allies with continuations into 2014.

“In Buffy, Season 10 is going to be about bringing friendships back together, while in Angel & Faith, relationships are shattered. Magic is starting to come back into the world, but in some surprising ways, like that vampire we saw standing in the sunlight at the end of Season 9,” says Editor in Chief Scott Allie.

Neither property was all that afraid of stirring things up when they were on television, so it’s probably par for the course to see some very big changes coming to the Buffy-verse in the new seasons from Dark Horse. And I’m sure fans won’t exactly mind getting yet another dose of Joss Whedon’s characters here as his interpretations of Buffy and her crew were beyond popular.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 is currently marked down for a 30 issue run, which will take the book through next year and then some. The book will come from the minds of writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Issacs, with cover art by Steve Morris.

“The Buffyverse community has been wonderfully welcoming to Rebekah and me. It’s a tremendous honor for Joss and Dark Horse to trust us with their flagship book, and we are going to do all we can to be worthy of that trust. It’s a new season, with new rules…but hopefully the same blend of love, action, horror, humor and creativity that’s made Buffy and her Scoobies part of all our families. We hope you’ll join us for the ride,” states Christos Gage

Also set for a 30 issue series is Angel & Faith and will be brought to fans by the team of Victor Gischler, Will Conrad and Scott Fischer.

“I was proud and privileged to have a small part in season nine, and I can’t express how grateful I am to have an expanded role in season ten. Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains an iconic television show, and the Dark Horse comics continue that great tradition. I plan on having a lot of fun.” Says Angel & Faith series writer Victor Gischler

Oddly enough, the small shakeup of talent on these books also affects anther Whedon-helmed creation- Serenity. The sci-fi series was recently announced to have a comic book sequel to the film version published by Dark Horse and the change of artists on the Angel & Faith and Buffy books will spill over into that title.

“I’m very happy that our Angel & Faith artist has hopped over to Buffy, allowing our Buffy artist to jump over to Serenity. And to make the game of musical chairs complete, the guy who draw the first two Serenity miniseries is back in the loop, taking over Angel & Faith. These are all artists Joss and the writers and I are comfortable working with, and who are cozy with these characters, so it’s nice to shake things up a bit while having a lot of confidence in what these artists can do. And I’m so happy to have Will back,” adds Scott Allie.

So basically, 2014 is shaping up to be a whole lot of good times for Whedon fans. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #1 stakes stands on March 19th with Angel & Faith Season 10 #1 following that up on April 2nd.
