Here at The Flickcast we really like all-things Joss Whedon. Of course, that obsession began with his first, and still the best, television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Sadly, the show went off the air in 2003. Fortunately, its managed to live on in comic book form and got its season eight courtesy of the fine folks at Dark Horse Comics.
Now, over at Comics Continuum, they’ve got a preview of a brand new Buffy comic called Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tales of the Vampires to further entertain and delight fans of the Slayer.
According to the press release from Dark Horse, Tales of the Vampires is about:
“A small town in Massachusetts, where a young man named Jacob goes about his day as usual — wakes early, eats breakfast with his mom, and heads to school. He’s a hard worker and a reliable friend to Alexia, an athletic and headstrong young woman. But at night Jacob likes to cut loose at the local arcade, where he’s befriended a reckless gang of vampires who enjoy drinking his blood. Jacob craves the high and the easy escape from the monotony of his life that this ‘bloodletting’ provides. Enter the mysterious and sultry May, who can help Jacob leave those high-school days behind — that is, if Alexia doesn’t stop her first.”
Sounds good to us. Check out the big page previews after the jump. But if you do, please be beware of potential SPOILERS. Enjoy.
