Buffy comic – first look!

In a new in-depth interview with Entertainment Weekly, Joss Whedon shares more info about the upcoming 25-to-30 issue Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic series he’s dubbed “Season 8″, that picks up where the show left off. ”There will be some new slayers that you’ll meet, and by the second issue, you’ll find out there are different camps across the world being run by various characters that fans will know. The comic focuses a lot on this new generation of slayers — the problems they will face, and the problems they will cause.”

All of the Scooby gang will be included, although “I’m bringing them in slowly…time has passed. So we find them anew and have to relearn them. Buffy is in an odd place at a different part of her life. It’s like we’re sitting down to chat for the first time in a long while. There’s a lot to catch up on.”

As for everyone’s favorite lesbian witch, “what Willow is up to is not revealed right away, but she will show up. But I just got the cover of the first issue she appears, and all I’ll say is that it’s awesome.”

Here’s a first look at the comic:

From the look on Buffy’s face in the last panel, I think she just found out that Dawn will be kidnapped and held for ransom on tonight’s episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent
