As revealed at the Dark Horse: CLASSIFIED! panel at New York Comic Con 2015, Dark Horse will deliver a new original graphic novel series titled Buffy: The High School Years, executive produced by Joss Whedon.

Megan Levens is a busy lady. Her creator-owned (with writer Jamie S.

Who doesn’t love some Buffy Summers action?Â Sideshow Collectibles has a brand new Buffy statue coming down the pipe in third quarter of 2010, and it looks pretty amazing.
