Wolves At The Gate

That thing we've been calling the "Untitled Tokyo Arc" is no longer untitled. Issues 12-15 of "Buffy: Season Eight" will be called "Wolves at the Gate." Great title, and the artwork for both of the covers is great. The Jon Foster cover is far better than his #11 cover, and Jeanty's ain't bad either. It's one of Jeanty's best Buffy likenesses, though I'm not really sure about that Xander's cleavage in the background.

So #12 comes out on March 5th. The blurb is as follows:

"Acclaimed television series writer, Drew Goddard (Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Alias; Lost), takes the reins on Season Eight with his four-issue arc titled "Wolves at the Gate." The gang (yep, Dawn too) travels to Tokyo where they duel vampires with unusual, yet strangely familiar, powers.With Joss Whedon serving as executive producer, Georges Jeanty (The American Way) as series artist, and Jon Foster on covers, Buffy Season Eight continues to entertain longtime Buffy fans and newcomers alike."

Not much we didn't know in there already, except for the fact that Dawn is joining them. Move over Godzilla, the motherf***ing KEY is coming.

I'm excited for this arc! I love Drew Goddard's work! "Selfless" anyone?
