    Dark Horse Comics have announced Buffy and the Scooby Gang will return this summer in a new four-issue limited series, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning.” Penciled by “Buffy” veteran Georges Jeanty, the comic will be written by “Season 10/11” scribe Christos Gage, and series creator Joss Whedon himself, directly overseeing his character for the first time since “Season Nine” (with Andrew Chambliss) in 2011.

    Here’s how Dark Horse describes the series:

    Following the world-altering finale of “Season 11,” Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with — Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future — Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.

    The comic will also feature Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the 23rd century vampire slayer Whedon created with Karl Moline in 2001.

    “Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning” #1 will be released on June 20. It will come with three different covers by Jeanty with Karl Story and Dan Jackson, Moline, and Stephanie Hans, all of which you can check out over at Dark Horse. In the meantime, “Season 11” wraps up with a four-issue “Giles” series, starting February 28.
