There's been serious Buffy comic withdrawal over my way. Luckily my fix is coming soon. November 26th to be exact.
The last issue of Buffy Season 8 was in stores...a while ago. I remember hearing there was going to be a delay but I had no idea it would be this long. Editor Scott Allie had this to say:
Good news, gang -- Andy Owens has just turned in the final inks for long-overdue Buffy #19. So while Michelle wraps up the colors on Buffy #19, I want to thank you for your patience, apologize for the delay, and promise to do my best to keep it from happening again.
Even better news, issue #20, Jeph Loeb's one-shot about the Buffy Animated Series that never was, is almost finished and issues #21 and #22 are already in the can. As a result Dark Horse will ship the issues every three weeks to get back on their first-week-of-the-month schedule. Fine by me! The more Buffy, the better I say.
Allie also hinted at some unusual promotion for the next arc, written by Jane Espenson, which will feature Oz. He said to keep an eye on the Myspace Dark Horse Presents site (and other spots) around the 1st of the year for whatever that may be.
