While the new “season” of Buffy the Vampire Slayer started slowly, the last two issues have really sped things forward and the season’s arc is becoming more clear. We have two weeks until the newest issue (out on 3/14/12) and I really am on the edge of my seat.
Dark Horse’s official description: “Still seeking normalcy in the midst of zompire-stricken San Francisco, Buffy contemplates a life-changing decision the likes of which few Slayers have ever faced. Meanwhile Spike rushes to the aid of Detective Dowling, who’s in over his head with his recent investigation into the undead bloodsuckers plaguing the city. Buffy settles down with . . . Spike?! A cliffhanger certain to shock fans!“
Last issue, it was great to see Principal Wood back in the fold and I loved the flashbacks that showcased his mother, a slayer who Spike killed (and where he got his iconic leather jacket). Will the shocking cliffhanger be another returning character?
