Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight To Be A Motion Comic

Posted by November 17, 2009 Comment

Joss Whedon has already seen one of his comics, Astonishing X-Men, transformed into a successful motion comic, an animation that uses the elements of a published comic and moves them about a bit, a kind of half way house between a cartoon and a comic, and often satisfying neither parties. Nevertheless, a number have been successful, with Spider-Woman, Watchmen and the aforementioned Astonishing X-Men being the most prominent.

Well, in lieu of Buffy not actually coming back as a TV series, and the cancellation of Dollhouse, the continuing-of-the-TV-series-as-a-comic written and showrun by Joss Whedon, Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight may be the next audio/visual entertainment for Whedon junkies. Currently published by Dark Horse, Buffy Season Eight has seen the character lead an army of Slayers that finds itself under attack from many forces.

Sci Fi Wire has a casting notice for the project – which at least means we’ll be spared the one-voice-fits-all audio from the Watchmen motion comic.

So.. anyone fancy having a go? As long as you’re not expecting union-negotiated payrates of course… and it would help if you were Daniel Craig.
