The cover to issue 8 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Nine caused considerable stir. And we still don’t exactly know how that’s going to play out, although I suspect a Skywalker apporach. But, trying not to spoil anything, the covers to Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Nine #9 appear to show a Buffy who is, well, less likely to be on her way to Venus de Milo status.
Of course there are two of her on Phil Noto’s cover. I really hope this isn’t one of Xander’s weird dreams. Are these Buffys that could have been? Here’s the solicits if you can garner some clues from that. The comic is on sale May 9th.
Andrew doesn’t always make the best choices (see Season 6). And now Buffy finds herself and the very course of her life profoundly affected by one of Andrew’s over-the-top, idiotic . . . hair-brained . . . schemes. Together with Andrew and Spike, the worried Slayer will have to confront herself and her comrades, as well as a long-standing annoyance, the number-one Buffy hater of all Buffy haters: Simone, the gun-toting Slayer.
Packing the punch into Buffy Season 9 are series writer Andrew Chambliss and guest artist Cliff Richards (Dollhouse)!
