Dark Horse Comics has announced that Joss Whedon is returning to the Buffy comic books for a special four-issue series dubbed Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning. Whedon is accompanied by fellow screenwriter Christos Gage and artist Georges Jeanty. The first issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning will be available on June 20th and pre-orders begin in March.
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with – Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future – Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.
