permlink Buffy, Season 8

[via girlhacker] Joss Whedon's writing more "official" Buffy, picking up a few months after the series finale.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Is Back: The Complete Joss Whedon Q&A |

...the idea of doing movies about some of the ancillary characters got me really excited, because I love those actors and I love that world. That kind of fell through, but when I started working on the comic... I sketched out this sort of broad arc that would connect everything. Now it will probably only appear on the comic-book pages, but it will be really well drawn.

...The season should run between 20 and 30 issues, I'm guessing. It has, like the [TV] seasons did, an overriding story with an ending point. I'll be writing the beginning, the first four, the last four, and I'll definitely be doing some others. I have a bunch of other writers -- comic-book heavies and former writers from the show -- who are going to write the other issues.

Also, he loves Battlestar Galactica; he'll do 10 more issues of Astonishing X-Men (which I think he's doing a bangup job on); and no one's setting up any Serenity followup projects at the moment.

4 preview pages from the comic can found here -- p1 p2 p3 p4. Storytelling is so much easier when you don't have to get actors & sets sorted. Need to have the lead character skydive? Just draw it...
