“Spike has been maturing quite a bit as he comes to terms with being in a normal, healthy relationship, and being one of the good guys,” states Gage. “And now, just as he’s getting comfortable with it, that role is going to be sorely tested. Willow has become a leader of a Wiccan community, and it’s brought her a lot of fulfillment, but it will also bring new challenges as events of the story unfold. We really wanted to explore this facet of Willow that, while it’s been a key part of her character for years, hasn’t really been a major focus.”
“We’ll be introducing some new characters, including a Slayer named Morgan — is she ally, or enemy, or both?,” he continues. “But old favorites like Harmony will still be popping up here and there. Andrew isn’t around much this time, but will show himself to be probably the smartest of the bunch. As Joss described one of his goals for this season: ‘Raise the… wait for it… stakes.’ We’re ramping up the intensity, and we want to really see how it affects these people we care about so much. Previous apocalypses have been of the world-ending variety, and they’ve tended to threaten toward the end of a season. This one kicks off ‘Season 11,’ and it’s not quite world-ending – more world-changing. It’s the way the world changes that will provide new challenges for Buffy and the Scoobies, of a kind they’ve never faced before.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 11 #1 will go on sale on November 23rd.
