Dark Horse Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #1, that you can check out, after the jump.

Writer: Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss
Penciller: Georges Jeanty
Inker: Dexter Vines
Cover Artist: Steve Morris

Season 8 ended with a bang when Buffy cut the world off from the hell dimensions and all supernatural influence. Great, right? Except Buffy has left her best friend, Willow, powerless, and ended the long line of vampire slayers, leaving her hated by the hundreds of girls who recently stood behind her. Newly relocated to San Francisco, Buffy can count on a fresh start, and focus on what she’s good at–slaying.

  1. I’m so cheesed at the ending to Season 8 that I’m not even sure if I’m going to keep reading… But with that bit of personal nerd-rage aside, I’m -really- glad they’re keeping the “season” concept alive. I wish other comic books would embrace “volumes”/whatever in the same way. Comic books sometimes get caught in the need to keep plot-threads dangling a little too long (or conversely resolving them 2 pages after introduction), but with the “season” idea writers are able to close things off without ending the comic book. (Yes, I’m basically once more bemoaning the lack of long-lasting story arcs in ‘regular’ comics.)

  2. No, there’s nothing about anything with “Angel” in it that will do anything good for me. HE is the reason I hate the ending for season 8. (I don’t wanna be spoilery) I’m totally not a fan of “Angel” to the point where I won’t read “Angel: Season Anything” no matter how interesting it gets. :) Hence, I think the end of Season 8 was my ‘jumping off point’, sadly.
