Preview - Buffy: The Vampire Slayer Season 9 #1

Joss Whedon probably never pictured this.

In the year 2011 he would be feverishly working on the big-screen adaptation of The Avengers will also overseeing season 9 of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. Only the former being film of the comic and the latter being the comic of the film/series. Topsy turvy world eh?

Regardless, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer Season 9 #1 is set to hit stores September 14 and continues the stories from the show, only in comic book form. Season 8 ended with Buffy cutting off the world from the hell dimensions. She managed to leave Willow powerless in the process and ended the long line of vampire slayers. What's she to do now? Move to San Francisco and get a fresh start while still slaying.

Joss Whedon is joined by writer Andrew Chambliss on the first issue, with art by Georges Jeanty and Dexter Vines (cover by Steve Morris). Interiors after the jump.
