THE STAKES ARE HIGH, THE NIGHTS ARE LONG, AND BUFFY HAS TO SAVE THE WORLD…AGAIN
Dark Horse and Joss Whedon announce “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Season 11
SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 19, 2016 — Dark Horse is excited to announce the next installment in Joss Whedon’s Buffy comics series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11. The talented comics duo of Christos Gage (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Avengers Academy) and Rebekah Isaacs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Angel & Faith) returns with more shenanigans from the Scoobies.
After overcoming the struggles of Season 10, Buffy and the Scoobies give themselves a well-deserved break from fighting evil. Unfortunately, the momentary peace comes to a screeching halt when a supernatural disaster wreaks havoc on the citizens of San Francisco, and the gang is forced to save the world from imminent doom, again.
Buffy Season 10 writer Christos Gage described his excitement for the next season of the beloved supernatural thriller: “Buffy fans have been wonderful to Rebekah and me throughout Season 10, so I couldn’t be more excited to keep our creative team together for Season 11! True to form, Joss is not content to just rest on his well-earned laurels, so Season 11 will shake things up with a story that’s shorter, bigger, more epic, and presents what may be the greatest challenge Buffy and the Scoobies have ever faced. We hope the readers will enjoy the ride!”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 will have twelve issues total. The first issue goes on sale November 23, 2016. Karl Moline (Fray) will create a special Dark Horse 30th Anniversary variant cover for the first issue.
Buffy creator Joss Whedon is signing on Saturday, July 23, from 5 p.m. to 5:50 p.m.in the Dark Horse booth at San Diego Comic-Con. Christos Gage will sign from 1 p.m. to 1:50 p.m. on Thursday, July 21.
