As we told you last week in our Comic Preview Joss Whedon returned to the world of BtVS in a new comic for Dark Horse giving us the first chapter of Buffy Season Eight. Well, it appears that many Buffy fans are indeed alive and well and want to find out what happened after the Scooby Gang unleashed countless Slayers into the world. The first printing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8: #1 sold out and Dark Horse has agreed to put out a new second printing, with a slightly different cover, on March 28.
In the first issue alone Buffy’s “relationship” with the Immortal is explained, Zander takes on his new role of Watcher (Nick Fury style), new mysterious symbols appear (never a good sign in the Whedonverse), and the US Government becomes involved in investigating Sunnydale’s destruction and begins a plan to follow and deal with Miss Summers’ new “super-powered terrorist cells.” All in all, a good start to Season Eight! Keep ‘em coming!
