When fans last saw the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in May 2003, Buffy and her friends had won a nearly apocalyptic battle between good and evil. Now, Buffy and the crew are back for an eighth season, only this time in comic book form. Joss Whedon, Buffy's creator, has written the first five issues and will oversee the whole arc as if it were a television show. Former Buffy staff writers and a few comic book writers will join him to continue the story, which is scheduled to run for at least 30 issues to be released monthly.
