Joss Whedon has revealed that he will script the first four issues of a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer series for Dark Horse, and oversee subsequent issues.  The book will take place after the end of Buffy and Angel, and as he put it in a post on, 'be canon in the Buffy world.'  Whedon's story arc will place Buffy living in Italy with The Immortal. 


Whedon also said that he's continuing to try to develop a Spike movie, but had no specific dates set.
