Georges Jeanty, artist of the first arc of Dark Horse Comics' Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8, told The Continuum that all systems are go for the book's scheduled March launch.

"I've finished the first issue," Jeanty told The Continuum on Sunday at the Motor City Comic-Con in Novi, Mich. "I hope to finish everything by December."

Jeanty said he's enjoyed working with writer and Buffy creator Joss Whedon, who hand-picked him for the project, which picks up from the end of the television series.

"He's a full-script kind of guy. Everything is there," Jeanty said. "But I will talk to him about specifics. He's very, very giving."

Jeanty was originally concerned in dealing with likenesses, but he said that's working out well.

"I've got Sarah Michelle Gellar down pretty well and I've got Xander (Nicholas Brendon) down," Jeanty said. "Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) is presently the one that's giving me some trouble. She has such a pretty face and is so simply beautiful. There's not a distinctive characteristic like an eyepatch or like with Sarah Michelle Gellar, her nose."

Dark Horse's new Buffy comics will be released in a series of mini-series. The March launch will coincide with the 10th anniversary of the television show's debut.

Jeanty's recent WildStorm project, The American Way, will be collected in a trade paperback in February. Perhaps one of the higher-profile artists never to sign an exclusive with Marvel Comics or DC Comics, Jeanty is uncertain what his next project will be.

"There might be more Buffy, I'm not sure," he said.


NBC has released a description of "Better Halves," the Monday, Oct. 30 episode of Heroes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Hiro (Masi Oka) and his buddy embark on their heroic journey to New York, when they are stopped by a Vegas high-roller who offers them a deal they can't refuse. As H.R.G (guest star Jack Coleman) sets up a meeting for his daughter Claire (Hayden Panettiere) with her biological parents, she hopes that questions about her newfound indestructibility can be answered. Meanwhile, Isaac (Santiago Cabrera) receives another confusing call from Hiro, but Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) is there this time to pick up the phone and relay a life-saving message. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) bids farewell to Eden (guest star Nora Zehetner) as he heads back to India to bury his father. An unexpected visitor shows up at Niki's (Ali Larter) home."

Leonard Roberts, whose credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, joins the cast as D.L. Hawkins, a fugitive that police can't hold.

Tyler Kirkham, the artist behind such titles as Strykeforce and V.I.C.E., has renewed his exclusive contract with Top Cow Productions for another three years, through October 2009.

"Top Cow is home for me. This is where I started, and this is where I'm staying," Kirkham said. "Right from the beginning, it was the people at Top Cow that helped me get my start in comics."

Kirkham is currently penciling Phoenix: Warsong, a Marvel Comics series Top Cow is producing under a packaging arrangement with Marvel.

"Tyler is someone that we have a ton of faith in and are very proud of the incredible work he's produced for us," said Top Cow VP Sales and Marketing Filip Sablik. "Every new project he tackles exceeds his previous accomplishments and our expectations."
