Hello folks. We realize that many of our newest regular customers have started shopping at the store thanks to Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 8 comic book adaptation. Welcome to The Beguiling! We’ve been happy to sell you these comics! But, as we feared, the series has slipped off schedule, with the first-Wednesday-of-every-month ship date for October being missed.
Even though it wasn’t, you know, our fault, we’re still quite sorry about this. Because we want you to have your Buffy comics. And to keep enjoying your Buffy comics for what I hope will be years to come.
Well, Dark Horse Comics has released an updated schedule for the next few issues, and we’re happy to let you know that the next issue of Buffy will be out in just a few more weeks.
Here is the ultra-revised, updated Buffy schedule:
Issue #19, November 26 – The Time Of Your Life, Part 4 – The end of Buffy’s visit to the future to meet Fray, the last slayer.
Issue #20, December 17 – After These Messages… We’ll be right back! One-shot – Whatever became of the Buffy Animated Series? A glimpse of what might have been acts as an epilogue to the time-travel storyline.
Issue #21, January 7 – Harmonic Divergence Part One – Harmony is back.
After that, the book will return to its first-week-of-the-month schedule. Thanks for your patience!
