The first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired ten years ago on March 10, 1977. It seems only right that I should honor that date with some Whedon news.
It has been confirmed that Serenity will see a second sequel series published by Dark Horse
. Pub date is most likely this fall. Story line revolves around the crew landing a job so big, it will allow them all to retire. Such high stakes cause the team to come apart under the pressure. Brett Matthew will write the books, Will Conrad will do the art, Adam Hughes (tentatively) the covers. Wired Mag
does an annual six word novel contest in honor of Hemingway’s famous short: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Joss Whedon’s entry: Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.
Gotta love it.
I was hoping to have the first edition of the new Buffy Season 8 Comic
in time for this, but alas, my mailbox remains empty. This link will take you to Tfaw.com where you can preorder the series.
Not exactly Whedon but kind of—Summer Glau (River Tam on Firefly and Prima Ballerina on Angel) plays a female Terminator on the new series "Sarah Connor Chronicles”
set to air on Fox this fall. I, for one, always held Sarah Connor as one of my favorite kick-butt heroines. Lena Headey plays Sarah and Thomas Dekker, her son John. But the part of Sarah will always belong to Linda Hamilton in my mind.
What’s you favorite Whedon series/character/storyline? If you’re saying, I don’t have one or even worse, Joss who? Shame on you.
