Here are next week's Dark Horse releases, consisting out of a huge Dark Horse Presents, the premiere of a brand new story for an old heroine, the continuation of Buffy Season 9 with a certain blond vampire and two Trade Paperbacks that could pique your interest.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: SPIKE #3 (JENNY FRISON COVER)

 Spike meets a demon in distress and a familiar, exceptionally nasty duo that are all after something buried in the rubble formerly known as Sunnydale.

  • Spike heads back to Sunnydale.
  • Buffy Season 9!
  • "Gischler does a great job defining relationships and then providing twists and turns.” —Comic Book Resources
