Dark Horse is planning a major expansion of its Joss Whedon-related licensed comics in 2011. Dark Horse’s Jeremy Atkins told ICv2 that when Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine debuts in mid-2011 it will be joined by a monthly Angel comic along with spin-offs featuring Willow and Spike.
Dark Horse’s Atkins also told ICv2, “Additionally we are going to be picking up Dollhouse where it left off on the television show, much like we did with Buffy. We are starting as a mini-series and we will see where it goes from there. It will be written by Jed Whedon, who worked on the show as well.”
Dark Horse recently re-acquired the rights to Angel (see “Angel Comics Head Back to Dark Horse”), and the current Buffy Season Eight series, which continued the narrative of the cancelled TV series, is Dark Horse’s bestselling comic book title.
