‘Buffy’ to keep on slaying in comic-book form

Comics

Buffy the Vampire SlayerBuffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon says there will be a “season nine” in comic book form, following up the success of Dark Horse Comics’ current “season eight” run of 40 issues.

According to an interview with Complex.com, Whedon says the new storyline will be “very different” and may not run as many issues as the current one.

Based on a campy 1992 action-comedy of the same name starring Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry, Buffy found new life in seven seasons of television that came to an end in 2003.

There has since been talk of a big-screen reboot that wouldn’t include Whedon. I have only one thing to say to that: “Grrr… Arrgh…”
