Buffy's new position as leader and figurehead of the world's five hundred most powerful women has made her a bigger target than ever before. "The Chain" tells the story of one of the decoy "Buffy" Slayers, a tale personally important to series creator Joss Whedon. Guest artist Paul Lee (Conan, Tales of the Vampires) pencils the first standalone issue of Season Eight.
Buffy creator Joss Whedon brings Buffy back to Dark Horse in this direct follow-up to season seven of the smash-hit TV series.
I wonder if buffy (the real one) will appear in this issue at all or do you think that it will just be giles and andrew giving orders to the slayers??? Also, i wonder which slayers are fighting off that vamp???

In the issue 4 comic, it says that if this were an episode in the television series, joss would have directed it.... i am assuming by this comment that the issue wud be able to last 45 minutes if aired on tv, meaning more violence scenes...maybe??? Also, does anybody else just see the demon being floored as the gnarl and also the slayer that is fighting it off has a slight kill bill uma thurman look?!?!?!?

Way cool, thanks for posting the article hitnrun. One of the demons looks kinda "first-evil-y". Probably not it though.
I'm really looking forward to this issue. Kinda most of all! The plot is very intriguing to me, and I am sure that it will have a grim ending. As far as I'm concerned we need a little bit of drama right now.
I wonder if the last sequence he was talking about ends with Buffy receiving a phone call that the decoy has died? Maybe he had a hard time showing Buffy's reaction to this news...?
