Casey Gilly and Oriol Roig show us a future where Willow’s daughter becomes a slayer.
In the Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer one-shot that came out in 2021, Casey Gilly and Joe Jaro introduced us to a Buffy Summers who was well out of her senior year and living out life in her more senior years. Now that weathered, veteran Buffy will return in a five-issue miniseries from BOOM! Studios.
This time, Gilly is joined by artist Oriol Roig as Buffy mentors a new slayer — Thess, the daughter of Willow and Tara.
“It always feels SO GOOD to sink my fangs back into Last Vampire Slayer! For this arc, Oriol and I are bringing readers to beautiful Santa Carmen, CA, where our girl Thessaly is figuring out the life of a Slayer in her early 20s: she’s got a job at the local boardwalk, a big crush on her cute co-worker, oh—and a bunch of grizzly supernatural murders to stop,” Gilly said. “It’s been such a privilege to see these characters through three books so far and I hope everyone is excited to see what we have in store for them.”

The creative duo talks about their new title for IDW Originals, their influences and how to design the perfect ghost.
After working together on projects like the all-ages Star Wars: Return to Vader’s Castle title, Cavan Scott and Nick Brokenshire continue their partnership with Dead Seas, a six-issue miniseries that was announced earlier this year as part of the first wave of titles from IDW Publishing’s new Originals line.
Dead Seas merges horror, science fiction, action and corporate greed in a story about a convict-turned-reluctant-hero, who finds himself trapped with guards, pirates and his fellow convicts on a prison ship filled with ghosts. Scott and Brokenshire hit the familiar tropes from each genre while at the same time taking a unique approach to the subject matter, particularly regarding how the ghosts appear on our plane. If the rest of the series is as fun as the first issue, we’re all in for a treat.
The first issue arrives in stores Dec. 21, and Scott and Brokenshire were kind enough to answer a few questions about it.

The new titles were announced during this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration.
Marvel and Lucasfilm have announced two new comics set during the Star Wars: The High Republic timeline that was first announced back in 2020.
The High Republic has, so far anyway, been a publishing initiative for Lucasfilm, spanning novels and comics, and telling the story of the Jedi Knights many decades before the Skywalker saga. It’s introduced several new characters, in addition to using a younger Yoda in the stories.
A second volume of the ongoing series Star Wars: The High Republic will be written by Cavan Scott and drawn by Ario Anindito, who worked on the first volume. In addition, Marvel will publish Star Wars: The High Republic – The Blade, a four issue miniseries by Charles Soule and Marco Castiello.

Back in the early 1990s Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider and Hulk had a brief team-up in the pages of Fantastic Four while the actual Fantastic Four were out of town. It was a fun story by Walt Simonson and Art Adams that only last a few issues. But now Marvel will revisit that team — and time period — in The New Fantastic Four, a limited series by Peter David and Alan Robinson.
“Although their original stint was extremely short-lived, the alternate version of the FF has had its fans for years, including myself,” David said. “I am fortunate Marvel has given me the opportunity to revisit with them and take their battles to new heights in a new location with new allies and new enemies.”
Like Maestro and X-Men Legends, this story takes place in the past, shortly after the quartet’s first appearance.
