Season 9′s journey has come to an end, but who will stand and who will fall? Will Buffy be able to repair the damage she has caused? And, more importantly, can there be a Season 10? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Dark Horse offers fans and retailers alike the perfect jumping-on point for all of the titles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9!
North America’s largest pop-culture tour continues at Wizard World (WIZD.PK) Mid-Ohio Comic Con at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, October 22-23, with standout guests James Marsters, Billy Dee Williams, Adam West, Burt Ward, Claudia Christian and Walter Koenig headlining the list of celebrity attendees.

Or – “That Was One LOOONG Season…”
And you thought that the break between seasons of Battlestar or the Venture Brothers was long? Either way, the world-shattering menace of Twilight has finally been laid low, with a bang (Giggity!) rather than a whimper, and soldiers have fallen in the battle against evil. What does Buffy do when her own actions turn her friends and her army into her enemies?
Or – “In Joss Whedon’s World, Season Finale = Body Count.”
It’s time for the battle with the Big Bad, as characters live, characters die, and some worlds are changed forever. Beloved fan-faves are about to take the dirt-nap, folks, and I imagine that the fan backlash has already begun…
You may have already seen the news that swept across the Intardwebz that Joss Whedon’s Angel series is returning to Dark Horse Comics in 2011. For the last five years, Angel has been published with IDW Publishing, and when the word first broke it seemed to catch a lot of people by surprise.
For quite some time I have been meaning to combine my interests in comic book heroes, ancient Japanese poetry and strawberry milkshakes. I really couldn’t work the last one in but if you and I are ever at Sonic together remind me to pick some up.
Anyway, here’s some stuff I wrote while I was supposed to be paying attention to a presentation during my day job:
Dark Horse Comics sent Major Spoilers the cover images and solicitation information for titles arriving April 2010.Â Take the jump for Conan, Buffy, and a Barb Wire action figure.
There are a lot of issues that are selling out lately, meaning a) publishers are running fewer then normal print runs, or b) there is an increase in the number of readers.Â The latest sell out issue comes from Zenescope Entertainment, who dropped off a press release to let us know Salem’s Daughter #0 sold out through Diamond.
Salem’s Daughter is described by Zenescope as Buffy meets X-Files set in a stylistic version of 19th century America. The story follows lead character Anna Williams, a beautiful descendant of a lineage of witches, who is just beginning to realize her own mysterious powers as she attempts to vanquish a variety of supernatural beings that aren’t of this world.
The company didn’t say if it would be going back to press, but it did say it has copies on hand if stores wish to place an order. The first issue arrives June #1, 2009.
Take the jump to check out the Greg Horn cover.
Big Blue starts anew, senior citizens in skin tight leather, Major Spoilers Theme Song, free swag in the bag, and more comics than you can reasonably shake a stick at! Plus: Matthew, Matthew, Matthew, and some crap from those other guys, Stan andâ€¦ umâ€¦ Reynaldo, or something. All this and much, much more, as the Major Spoilers podcast hits 37â€¦ in a row!?

Show Notes after the Jump!
Electric Tiki released a tooned up version of the vampire slayer last year at the San Diego Comic Con.Â The company is back again with three more maquettes that include End of Days Buffy, Glory, and Dark Willow.Â Take the jump for a look at these beauties.
It went down to the wire, but the supernatural drama Reaper got its renewal notice yesterday during the CBS upfront presentation.
The more I watch this series, the better it becomes, and I will say Reaper is on its way to becoming the male-centric version of Buffy by the time next season is over. Smart dialog, good acting, great special effects, just the right amount of humor, make this my must watch show of the week.
Reaper will return for 13 episodes during the mid-season next year, more than likely appearing on Thursday night opposite Supernatural.
And since I’ve mentioned Reaper in a Major Spoilers article, it’s time for a Missy Peregrym appreciation moment after the jump.
