Dark Horse made several announcements related to Joss Whedon-created characters and stories at WonderCon 2011 over the weekend, including Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel.
If you felt like Dollhouse ended its run on television prematurely you’ll be happy to know that Jed Whedon and Andrew Chambliss will be penning a five-issue miniseries set in the near future, picking up where the TV episode “Epitaph” left off. Chambliss may be a familiar name to Vampire Diaries fans, as he also worked on that television series.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 will premiere in September with Whedon himself co-writing the first issue with Andrew Chambliss. Fans of Season 8 comic book series will feel right at home with the art, as Georges Jeanty will be returning for the new season. Editor Scott Allie confirmed that Willow and Spike will be making appearances in this new season. Angel will be getting a sidekick in the Fall too when Angel and Faith #1 launches with Christos Gage writing and Rebekah Isaacs providing the art. Gage previously wrote Avengers Academy for Marvel. The story picks up after Buffy Season 8 and follows the duo as they head back to England.
Both of these new series are planned to run 25 issues.
