At New York Comic Con this weekend, Dark Horse announced the return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel & Faith and Serenity.

“I’m very happy that our Angel & Faith artist has hopped over to Buffy, allowing our Buffy artist to jump over to Serenity. And, to make the game of musical chairs complete, the guy who drew the first two Serenity miniseries is back in the loop, taking over Angel & Faith. These are all artists Joss, and the writers and I, are comfortable working with, and who are cozy with these characters, so it’s nice to shake things up a bit while having a lot of confidence in what these artists can do. And I’m so happy to have Will back,” said Scott Allie, Editor in Chief of Dark Horse Comics.

Plots

Buffy Season 10 is going to be about bringing friendships back together.

In Angel & Faith, relationships are shattered. Magic is starting to come back into the world, but in some surprising ways, like that vampire we saw standing in the sunlight at the end of Season 9.

Malcolm Reynolds’s crew shook the ’verse to its core when they laid bare the crimes against humanity undertaken by their sinister government—the Alliance. Always outlaws, Mal, a very pregnant Zoe, new pilot River Tam, and the other surviving crew members are in greater danger than ever, and everyone’s asking the same question.
