Buffy Season 10, Issue 4

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #4
Official Description: Getting help from Dracula seemed like a good idea, until he stole the Vampyr book—and Xander! Now Buffy, Spike, Dawn, Willow, and Giles must save Xander and retrieve the book before it’s too late. Dracula has already begun to study how the lack of magical rules can work in his favor… The team from Angel & Faith takes over Buffy! Executive produced by Joss Whedon! Nicholas Brendon (Xander) joins Season 10!

I love it when Buffy-verse cast members join the writing team for issues. Who better to get into Xander’s head then the actor that brought him to life for so many years. The team of Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaacs continue to impress. After a stellar “season” of Angel & Faith, it is great to see them steering the main ship. Was surprised to see the team reintroduce Dracula, but I’m intrigued by the direction they are taking with the “big bad” caliber villain who has never reached that status in either the Buffy TV series or comics. It would be great to see him as a real threat.

The issue will be published by Dark Horse Comics on June 18th, 2014 from writers Christos Gage & Nicholas Brendon, along with artist Rebekah Isaacs, and of course executive producer Joss Whedon.

Following Buffy the Vampire Season 10? Enjoying the reintroduction of the classic vampire?

There have been a ton of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” related spin off proposals (a full list can be found here), but none of them came closer to happening than “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Animated Series”.  The series was going to follow the Scooby Gang back in high school (for the first time with Dawn), with most of the cast reprising their roles (sans Sarah Michelle Gellar), and most of the writing team on board to write episodes.  The idea seemed solid, but for unknown reasons it never made it to air. Now, almost four years later, the pilot presentation has been leaked online!  Watch it, have your friends watch it, with enough views or the right hype, maybe all this time later it will make it to air. Weirder things have happened. 

For now, enjoy!
