Buffy's back!

New Greg Rucka comic Veil is in pretty good company in this Dark Horse Comics promotion marking the start of Buffy Season 10, the Gail Simone Tomb Raider comic sequel to the reboot game, and a new run for Ghost.

But of course we’re here to talk Buffy in particular.

(About time somebody picked up the RPG licence again, eh? Eh? Anybody? Maybe? Please?)

Season 10 kicks off where S9 and Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaacs’s previous run on Angel And Faith ended, with magic back but unpredictable, vampires being weird (I know, right?) tensions in the gang and what happened with Giles being addressed. No huge developments just yet unless you’re joining the comics now, but hey, it’s issue 1. Unlike S8 issue 1, which introduced an army of slayers and started with Buffy jumping out of a helicopter wielding an anti-shield blaster thingy. We start here with a regular old-fashioned zompire smackdown. As Buffy herself notes, “sometimes it’s good to get back to basics.” Of course, S9 was a back to basics season as well, to an extent...
