Dark Horse have kindly allowed us fans to get a preview of #6 in the on-going “Buffy Season 8” comics by putting the first six pages online.

These have previously been seen in black and white as a pirated scan from Comic-Con, but they are now officially available from the publishers themselves in full colour.

This issue is the first part of Brian K. Vaughan’s “No Future For You”, a story arc for the Slayer Faith.

Click through to be spoiled! 😉

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8: #6 No Future for You

The second arc of our bestselling Season Eight starts here. Top creator Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man; Pride of Baghdad; Lost) takes over writing duties and dives headlong into what Faith is up to-infiltration, assassination, and nonstop Cleveland. The fugitive Slayer is given the assignment that could change her life . . . if Giles’s specialized training doesn’t make her want to end it first. Artist Georges Jeanty (The American Way) remains at the top of his game–and Joss Whedon stays on as Executive Producer–in this first part of “No Future for You.”


According to  Comics Continuum the “Angel: After the Fall” comic series has been assigned a November release date, that should help get us through the long cold winter nights! 😉

Plot by Joss Whedon and Brian Lynch, written by Lynch, art by Franco Urra, covers by Tony Harris and Urru.

The official continuation of the Angel series! When last we saw Angel and company, they were charging into battle against Wolfram and Hart’s Senior Partners and facing down endless demons in a dark and rainy alleyway.

Now, IDW Publishing presents the story of Angel: After the Fall, as presented by Angel co-creator Joss Whedon, with a creative team hand-picked by Whedon himself, the Spike: Shadow Puppets team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru.

If you head on over to the A.V. Club (part of the Onion News group), they have an excellent three page interview with Joss Whedon covering a lot of information about his current projects, there’s even a decent amount of coverage on the “Goners” film, though no new revelations.

Head on over to check out the full coverage.

A.V. Club

Recently, Whedon took the spotlight at the San Diego ComicCon, where he announced that he’s in negotiations to bring the Buffy spin-off Ripper to the BBC, showcased his online Dark Horse comic Sugarshock, and took five charity auction-winners to dinner, raising more than $60,000 for the worldwide women’s-rights organization Equality Now. Just before heading to San Diego, Whedon spoke with The A.V. Club about his current and upcoming comics projects, his film project Goners, the status of Serenity, why spoilers are ruining our culture, and his much-publicized work on—and break from—the Wonder Woman film project

Joss Whedon

If you head on over to Amazon they have a ten minute ‘phone interview with Joss as part of the promotion for the release of the new Collectors Edition of Serenity due out later this month, it’s well worth a listen.

Joss reveals some more information as to what we can look forward to in this version, it seems that the additional commentary is actually going to be screen-in-screen rather than just audio, so we will get to see some of our Big Damn Heroes again!

According to TV Squad and their report from San Diego’s ComicCon, Joss has reported that negotiations are almost complete with the BBC to make a 90 minute special of the long-awaited “Ripper”, starring my favourite watcher, Anthony Stewart Head.

There is plenty of other Joss news reported, but this was the one that got my attention. Also check out the Whedon ballet starring Summer Glau. 😉

Since Fox were kind enough to finally allow ‘Drive’ fans to see the last two filmed episodes of the series online it seems a shame that only those in the US can watch them. 😦
There are of course slightly illegal means of seeing them via non official channels, which is a very bad thing to do and so I would in no way encourage you to click this link, which is solely provided to warn fans of the heinous crime being committed! I am sure none of us would like to see Fox lose out on any revenue from this Emmy nominated show that they only canceled after first giving it a fair run of 10 days.

Well, after canceling the show and postponing the last two filmed episodes (twice!) Fox are now saying that they will make them available online.

At the moment the plan is to make them available through “FOX On Demand”, the same as the four previously aired episodes.

Lets hope they come through this time!
