Joss Whedon’s vampire teen drama continues to live on! Dark Horse announced today that both the antihero vampire Spike, and Buffy’s BFF, Willow, will be getting their own miniseries this summer. The Spike miniseries will be written by Victor Gischler with art from Paul Lee, and sees the badass bleach blonde battling demons as he does best. The Willow series will be written by Jeff Parker, with art from Brian Ching and it follows Willow on her journey to recover her witchcraft. See the official press releases below.
Written by Victor Gischler (X-Men, Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth) and drawn by Paul Lee (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Devil’s Footprints), Spike promises to be the series all Joss Whedon fans will be talking about.
Spike ventures off world in his bug ship in order to get away from some personal frustration on terra firma, and winds up sucked into a demonic plot to take advantage of the absence of magic on earth.
“What I love about working with Dark Horse on Buffy-related material is that they take great care to capture the feel of the characters and stories from the television show, of which I was a huge fan. Getting my hands on the characters I’ve loved so much over the years is a dream come true,” said Gischler.
Spike #1 will be on sale August 22, 2012!
Willow gets her own miniseries!
Written by Jeff Parker (Thunderbolts, Agents of Atlas) and drawn by Brian Ching (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Witchblade), Willow tells the story of the witch’s obsessive journey to recover her magic.
Willow is on a quest to bring magic back to the world, and she’ll do anything to make it happen, including forming some unhealthy alliances after cracking the code to travel to other dimensions—something thought impossible since the destruction of the Seed.
Willow #1 is on sale November 21, 2012.
