Buffy The Vampire Slayer

"Buffy Season 8" Comic Book - Issue 12 - Big Rumor about this issue !

Tuesday 29 January 2008, by Webmaster


[Yellow Light]Yes, it’s my continued attempt to bring back, single handed, the very thing that destroyed the comics industry in the nineties!

Previous iterations of this new regular feature spotlighted IDW’s “Locke & Key" and Marvel’s “One More Day" as items that may see supply exceed demand and thus fill your boots if you buy longboxes to sell at a later date. This week, “Buffy" #12. Part of the Season Eight series, this book will start the arc written by “Buffy" Season 7 and “Cloverfield" scriptwriter Drew Goddard. And Dark Horse have been recommending retailers order more copies of this, as a result of some unannounced event happening within its forty pages, directed straight from the mushy brain of Joss Whedon.

The solicitation reads, "Acclaimed television series writer, Drew Goddard (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer," “Alias," “Lost"), takes the reins on Season Eight with his four-issue arc titled ‘Wolves at the Gate.’ The gang (yep, Dawn too) travels to Tokyo where they duel vampires with unusual, yet strangely familiar, powers."

What the special event is, I don’t know, but expect publicity and expect increased demand ... but only when the book comes out. Make sure your multiple pull copies are listed on eBay before the book has shipped and Dark Horse announce a second print.

As certain people are doing with this week’s “Captain America," of course. A new man to fill the costume. About to hit the press wires, and this time you all know about it in advance. Still some potential to scalp non-regular buyers and make them pay double/triple cover! Let’s put one up on eBay right now in anticipation!
