NYCC 2013: Dark Horse: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Fans of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel & Faith comics from Dark Horse Comics should be happy today to learn that both series will be coming back for new “seasons” in 2014, as was announced at New York Comic-Con 2013 this weekend.

There will be a slight creative team change as the old Angel & Faith team of writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs moving over to the main Buffy series. Taking over on Angel & Faith will be writer Victor Gischler (X-Men), with the art being handled by Will Conrad (Red Lanterns). Each series will run for 30 issues, with Buffy launching on March 19th, 2013 and Angel & Faith dropping on April 2nd.

When Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended its seven-year run in 2003, fans of the Joss Whedon-created television series could (and did) take solace that a Buffy spin-off, Angel, was still on the air. Weekly forays to the Whedon-verse, however, ended when ended its abbreviated five-year run only a year later, Buffy/Angel fans contented themselves with syndicated reruns and DVDs. Whedon, of course, moved on, first to the short-lived Firefly (one season followed by a big-screen wrap up, Serenity) and Dollhouse several years later. Dollhouse only made it through two seasons on FOX. Despite his other projects, Buffy and Angel were never far from his mind.

Rather than attempting to bring Buffy back to network or cable television (an unlikely possibility given the passage of time, rights issues, and the availability of key cast members), Whedon decided to continue the series in comic-book form, first through Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, a sprawling 40-issue run that ran from 2007 through 2011, and subsequently through the about-to-be-concluded Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9. Acting initially as co-writer for Buffy, but primarily as an executive producer or showrunner, Whedon handed over Buffy to newcomer Andrew Chambliss and a new spin-off series, Angel & Faith to longtime comic-book scribe Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs. Both series were meant to run in parallel, each with 25 issues plus two spin-offs, one devoted to Willow, Buffy’s best-friend and witch, and the other to Spike, the other vampire with a soul.

Interview: ‘Sunset’ Writer Christos Gage

Christos Gage

As the success of Gran Torino indicates, we love stories about hard-edged, old timers fending off thugs and then bitching about them wearing their pants too low. Take a Walt Kowalski character-type, a tough, old fashioned, Korean War vet, and drop him in the middle of a mob-action story and you will have a feel for Christos Gage‘s awesome graphic novel, Sunset.

Gage’s story of revenge and redemption pulls no punches. Its script is as violent as it is politically incorrect — and in many ways, right on target. The main character, Nick Bellamy, never passes up an opportunity to comment on the softening of the modern generation. Their iPhones, their Prius, their kids’ scoreless soccer games: every topic is fair game. Nick also never leaves a challenge unchecked. As a former enforcer for mob boss Mr. Gianelli, Nick can still easily wipe out a small gang of common thugs like a septuagenarian Batman.

Christos Gage has written comics such as Deadshot, Absolution, Avengers: The Initiative, and X-Men Legacy. I recently had the change to discuss Gage’s latest comic, Sunset, with him.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Any Way You Want It” MK2Fac3 and “Don’t Stop Believin’” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 1, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Okay, I don’t have time to write much this week, but I’ll give you a rundown on a few comics that you should check out today. No time today for trades or love, Dr. Jones. Also, most of the trades out today are kind of boring. Go back and pick up the newest Darwyn Cooke Parker book if you haven’t already. All right? Let’s do this GoD List thing.

Cover Price: $19.99

It’s fashionable to romanticize the street-wise, toughness of old-timers who fought in WWII or the Korean War. They think our generation sucks. These grizzled vets probably think that someone reading this review on their fancy computer, or even worse their iPhone, makes them a candy ass. And, for some reason, we crave this abuse. We practically beg for it by plunking down our hard-earned cash—yes, Granddad, hard-earned—for any story starring a curmudgeonly old Luddite who doesn’t take any crap.

I hate to be a killjoy, but I’ll let you in on a little secret: Every generation in history has thought that the next generation is too soft. Our great-great-grandparents ragged on our pansy grandparents just as harshly—you know, the ones we’ve labeled the Greatest Generation. Even knowing this fact, I love tales that glorify our grandparents’ unyielding will and their outright refusal to let any hint of disrespect go unchecked. Sunset weaves this characteristic into a mob-action comic that’s one of my favorite books this year.

Geez… miss a couple of months of a comic book series and everything is different. Lots of introspection in this issue leads me to believe I need to go get the missing comics and play catch up. Sure, Faith is still leading the slayers around but she seems to have her hands full at it.

What makes a slayer turn on one of her sisters? It seems guilt does. Though they seemed well matched at first, Faith gains the upper hand and disarms her fellow slayer. A very sensitive Faith gives the other girl some rather helpful advice but allows her to deal with the pain in her own way, though not as she would have her do.
