Dark Horse Comics Brings Season 10 of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'

Cover Art by Rebekah Isaacs
Although Joss Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" left television in 2003, that doesn't mean the story was over. Beginning in 2007, Dark Horse Comics provided fans with an eighth and ninth season of the series in comic book form, with some Whedon-helmed stories to continue the saga of Sunnydale. Going to heights that couldn't physically or fiscally be reached during the television run, the Buffy comics took the Scoobies into all new territories.

On March 19, Dark Horse will be publishing the tenth season, which promises even more adventure. In a brief description from the "Buffy Zone" of the Dark Horse website, they reveal- "New season. New rules. The age-old battle of Slayer vs. vampire is the focus of Buffy’s life once again—it’s downright nostalgic! But with all the toying with magic she’s done lately, this girl should know it’s time for another game change . . . Shouldn’t she?"

The premiere issue ($3.50) is executive produced by Joss Whedon, written by Christos Gage and illustrated by Rebekah Isaacs. With all the familiar characters fans loved, hated, or even the ones we loved to hate, be sure to hit up your local comic book shop to find out what happens next!
