As Brian K. Vaughan takes the reins this week on Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, MTV.com talks with him and Joss Whedon about the Faith-focused arc. Here’s Vaughan:
I love Buffy, but I would have a hard time writing her I have a difficult time with traditional characters. I like characters who are rough around the edges — people who are occasionally selfish and misguided and confused, and Faith does those things very well. So I’m dealing with what Faith has been up to in the last four years since the show ended, and what kind of trouble she’s getting into.
Dark Horse has a preview of this week’s Issue 6 available on its website.
