Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve #1

The end begins. Joss Whedon returns to write the final season arc of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with Christos Gage that kicks off with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve #1. There's fun, there's fightin', and there are feels.

The gang has grown a little older and (maybe) a little wiser in the year since we saw them last. Xander and Dawn are living together in the suburbs with a baby girl whose name with give longtime Buffy fans all the feels. Spike and Buffy have split but are still on good terms, Willow is leading a women's power movement which includes Wiccans and Slayers, Giles has been restored to his proper age, and all seems relatively quiet... except for the legendary final battle just around the corner and a vampire from the future that plans on making sure he comes out on top.

The housewarming that kicks off the issue is interrupted by a couple of unexpected guests who bring news of the looming threat. It seems Fray's evil vampire twin brother has teamed-up with Wolfram & Hart (and they aren't the only familiar faces making an appearance). Worth a look.
