It was to have been a new spinoff title for Buffy Season 9 at Dark Horse Comics, written by the very actress that played her in the TV show.
But Juliet Landau‘s Drusilla, promoted extensively in Entertainment Weekly, to be drawn by Hack/Slash’s Tim Seeley is now off the schedules. One issue of the five part mini-series was solicited for June, but you won’t be getting even that, at least not yet, blamed on “unavoidable scheduling issues.”
Do expect more Buffy series announcements to come relatively soon, however.
Here’s how that first issue of Drusilla was solicited.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: DRUSILLA #1 (of 5)
Juliet Landau (W), Cliff Richards (P), Tim Seeley (A), Andy Owens (I), Cris Peters (C), Steve Morris (Cover), and Georges Jeanty (Variant cover)
On sale June 20
FC, 32 pages
