Buffy to Live On in Whedon-Authored Comic

Entertainment Weekly posted this cover art and information for a new comic book series continuing the post-seventh season adventures of Buffy the Vampire Slayer written by series mastermind Joss Whedon. I can't wait for this bit of "transmedia," though I fear the comic book form has become, for many media makers, merely a way to more cheaply continue stories that are no longer viable in their original form (whether due to production expense or cast non-availability), rather than stories built from the ground up for the new medium. But perhaps Whedon's the guy to prove me wrong. One thing seems certain, Buffy fans will have high expectations, and the comic is unlikely to satisfy our desire to see new stories realized with the original cast.
