Joss Whedon may have left DC’s Batgirl, but fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,“ the TV series he created, will be happy to know that Whedon is headed back to that world.
CBR reports that Dark Horse will soon be unleashing Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning, a new series co-written by Whedon and Christos Gage.
Georges Jeanty has returned to illustrate the comics.
The site lays out the plot details…
“Picking up after the world-altering finale from Buffy Season 11, the series’ synopsis indicates that the Scooby Gang have had an uncharacteristically laid back year away from fighting the forces of evil. However, when Xander and Dawn’s housewarming is gatecrashed by some familiar faces, Buffy and her crew will reach for their stakes once again. Forced to battle with a legion of demons, Wolfram Hart and a vampire from the future called Harth, Buffy will apparently find herself trapped in a time warp that could end the Slayers forever.
With alternate futures clearly playing a big part, The Reckoning will once again bring back future Slayer Fray, who first appeared in 2001’s self-titled spin-off. The Reckoning will see the return of Faith and Angel, as well as fan-favorite Illyria, though whether they help or hinder the cause remains to be seen.”
Issue #1 will arrive on June 20. Check out the three variant covers below.
