BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: SEASON 12 BEGINS IN JUNE
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is set to continue in June from Dark Horse Comics. The publisher has announced Season 12 from Joss Whedon, Christos Gage, and artist Georges Jeanty will be a four-issue mini-series called The Reckoning. That’s rather ominous, huh? Here’s how Dark Horse describes the series:
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with—Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future—Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.

The Buffy comics have had their ups and downs. Season 11 was particularly strong so I’m glad to see Gage returning. The seasons have also been getting shorter, with this one only clocking in at four issues. I hope this isn’t due to diminishing returns.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 12 – The Reckoning is set to reunite the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future. I mean, some of those folks were seen not that long ago during Season 11, but OK. The first issue is set for release on June 20th, 2018. It will feature three variant covers from Stephanie Hans, Georges Jeanty with Karl Story and Dan Jackson, and Karl Moline.
