Whedon: Buffy Lives In Comics
Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, told fans that he will be continuing the story of the Slayer in a series of Dark Horse comics, which he will write. "Speaking of Dark Horse Comics, they are starting a new Buffy comic, and as I understand it, it will take place after the end of Buffy and Angel and be canon in the Buffy world. And I understand it that way ’cause I’M WRITING IT. I’m kicking off the book with a four-issue arc that finds Buffy-you guessed it-living in Italy with The Immortal. ...Then I’ll be overseeing the book more closely, to make sure it remains true."
Whedon also said that he’s still working on a TV movie featuring the character of Spike (played by James Marsters). "The infamous Spike movie. Still haven’t finalized anything, but I feel that very soon I’ll be able to go to James and say something a lot more interesting than ’Wouldn’t it be cool if ... .’ ’Course, I just hope he’s free some time this decade. See how my peeps is all actifying!" Marsters currently has a recurring role in The WB’s Smallville.
Whedon, an avowed fan of comics, is no stranger to that world, having authored the Buffy-related Fray series for Dark Horse and the Astonishing X-Men series for Marvel.
