Joss Whedon will be returning to the franchise that got him started as he will team with writer Erika Alexander and artist Jon Lam on comic Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Giles. This four-issue mini-series from Dark Horse will focus on a resurrected, younger Giles as he investigates the disappearance of teachers in an inner-city high school. Whedon commented on the series:
Giles has never really dealt with the public school system as it exists for most kids. He’s never been to the city. Giles has always had the advantage of being a part of the system that educated him. He was taught to be a watcher in a family of watchers. His education was, in the grand British public school tradition, both expansive and parochial. In-depth views of tiny portions of the world. Of course, he walked over the awkward hormonal coals of adolescence—but now he knows more, and expects better of himself. His once-more 15-year-old body, however, is oblivious to his wisdom/cynicism/impatience.
There is no word at this point on whether other Buffy characters will be part of the series. It will arrive on comic stands on February 28th.
