BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SEASON 8: #6Picking up where the television show left off, series creator and geek icon, Joss Whedon (Astonishing X-Men) has been continuing Buffy’s adventures in comic book form. Now he’s handing the title to award-winning comic scribe Brian K. Vaughan (Ex Machina).

Vaughan is writing the second story arc of the series, which centers on Buffy’s bad girl counterpart, Faith. Vaughan’s run on the series begins with issue #6, out this week. BKV certainly knows how to write tough females, having done plenty of it in Y the Last Man, one of his many creations. Vaughan is also a writer for Lost, so you know he’s got lots of practice with mysterious and supernatural happenings. Let’s just hope he keeps the polar bear appearances to a minimum.Swing by your local comic book shop and check it out! If you still need more convincing, take a look at a few preview pages from the book.Interestingly enough, the two writers recently swapped writing duties on another title, Marvel’s Runaways, this time with Whedon taking over for Vaughan.
