Today was preview night of NYCC so it was nice and slow but the perfect day to get some work done! Actually, all we pretty much did was pick up our press passes, stopped by the Buffy car (below), play some Wii U, interviewed Super Scott Allie and left. But look out for that interview, it will be up very shortly!
Oh and Dark Horse announced today that they'd be releasing a Buffyverse value sampler. From the press release:
DARK HORSE OFFERS BUFFY FANS THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH THE CAST OF SEASON 9 IN ONE VALUE-PRICED SAMPLER!
BUFFYVERSE SAMPLER TO FEATURE FULL FIRST ISSUES OF BUFFY SEASON 9, ANGEL & FAITH, SPIKE, AND WILLOW! OCTOBER 11, NEW YORK, NY—Dark Horse offers fans and retailers alike the perfect jumping-on point for all of the titles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9! In 2007, Dark Horse made comics history with a revolutionary new concept: Joss Whedon’s best-loved television series continued in comics with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8. With Joss Whedon himself at the helm, the series launched with much critical acclaim, and sold out of multiple printings.
Following the success of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, Dark Horse launched four separate series for the anticipated Buffy Season 9. Buffy Season 9 and Angel & Faith are direct follow-ups to Season 8, while Spike and Willow are spinoffs from those two ongoing series.
Collected here are all four #1 issues, with all-new cover art by C. L. Bradley!
Coming in at 96 pages, this issue carries the low cover price of only $4.99!
Look for this at your local comic shop on January 23, 2013!
