Whedon returns to Dark Horse’s ‘Buffy’ comics for new miniseries

Whedon and Erika Alexander will co-write a new miniseries starring Giles, who goes back to class as a high school student.

Joss Whedon makes his triumphant return to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe with a new four-issue comic book limited series — Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles.

In the lead up to New York Comic Con, Dark Horse Comics announced that the Buffy creator will work with co-writer Erika Alexander of Concrete Park fame on the series. Artist Jon Lam, colorist Dan Jackson, and cover artists Steve Morris and Arielle Jovellanos round out the team.

Per the release, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles finds Rupert Giles returning to high school! But this time—as a grown man living in a teenage body—Giles will be a student instead of a teacher. At an inner-city Los Angeles school, when a mystical influence is detected and teachers start to go missing, Giles enrolls to investigate. What he finds is more than vampires and demons . . . something unusual and frightening is happening here. If Giles can get through one day as a student, he’ll have a chance to find out who, what, and where, but high school is still hell.”
