And Juliet Landau is co-writing.
I posted the other day about James Marsters‘ experience writing comics, but I have to say I find this interesting. After all, other than the writers of the TV series, who knows the characters better than the people who played them? Amber Benson notably has gone on from playing Tara on Buffy to working on Buffy comics to writing other comics, as well as novels and screenplays. Why not more?
It could just be a gimmick to get more fans of the series reading the comics, but I don’t know how many people would honestly read a comic written by an actor if they weren’t already inclined to do so. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see if it’s any good.
