|Hooray! I’m only sad I have to wait so long. I’m so intrigued about the whole vampire in sunlight thing.|
Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel & Faith Return in 2014!
Announced at New York Comic Con, Dark Horse is bringing the Whedonverse into it’s tenth season with the help of fan favorite authors, Christos Gage and Victor Gischler.
“In Buffy, Season 10 is going to be about bringing friendships back together, while in Angel & Faith, relationships are shattered. Magic is starting to come back into the world, but in some surprising ways, like that vampire we saw standing in the sunlight at the end of Season 9,” says Editor in Chief Scott Allie.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 is slated for 30 issues, written by Christos Gage and illustrated by Rebekah Issacs, with covers by long time series artist, Steve Morris.
“The Buffyverse community has been wonderfully welcoming to Rebekah and me. It’s a tremendous honor for Joss and Dark Horse to trust us with their flagship book, and we are going to do all we can to be worthy of that trust. It’s a new season, with new rules…but hopefully the same blend of love, action, horror, humor and creativity that’s made Buffy and her Scoobies part of all our families. We hope you’ll join us for the ride,” states Christos Gage
Angel & Faith is also slated for a 30 issue run, written by Victor Gischler and illustrated by Will Conrad, with covers by Scott Fischer.
"I was proud and privileged to have a small part in season nine, and I can’t express how grateful I am to have an expanded role in season ten. Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains an iconic television show, and the Dark Horse comics continue that great tradition. I plan on having a lot of fun." Says Angel & Faith series writer Victor Gischler
“I’m very happy that our Angel & Faith artist has hopped over to Buffy, allowing our Buffy artist to jump over to Serenity. And to make the game of musical chairs complete, the guy who draw the first two Serenity miniseries is back in the loop, taking over Angel & Faith. These are all artists Joss and the writers and I are comfortable working with, and who are cozy with these characters, so it’s nice to shake things up a bit while having a lot of confidence in what these artists can do. And I’m so happy to have Will back,” adds Scott Allie.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #1 hits stands March 19th and Angel & Faith Season 10 #1 is on sale April 2nd in comic shops everywhere!

It’s that time of year again, folks. Time to make the world a better place while winning fabulous prizes.
Heifer International is my favorite charity. It helps people raise themselves up out of poverty and starvation. Heifer promotes education, sustainable agriculture, and local industry all over the world.
They don’t just keep kids from starving, they make it so families can take care of themselves. They give goats, sheep, and chickens to families so their children have milk to drink, warm clothes to wear, and eggs to eat.
(Are you ready? I’m so ready. Let’s do it.)
We’ve changed things a bit from previous years. We’re streamlining things and making adjustments, which means that this is the first time we’re trying a lot. Think of this as Worldbuilders 2013 – Beta. Some tweaks will be made as needed, but we’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
You’ve got three different options for donating.
Option 1: The Lottery.
This is the option most of you will want. It’s quick and easy and tax deductible.
You just hop directly over to the page I’ve set up on Team Heifer, and donate.
When you donate on that page, two things happen.
1. You’ll move us closer to our stretch goals (the first few are shown below).
2. You’ll be entered in the lottery.
After the fundraiser is over, we’ll have a random drawing for all the swag that’s been donated. Thousands of books, comics, games, and other cool miscellany.
For every 10 bucks you donate on our Team Heifer page, your name will get entered into our drawing. If you donate thirty bucks, your name goes in three times. Donate enough for a goat, ($120) and your name goes in 12 times.
What’s in the lottery? A lot. We have a ton of stuff this year. So much that if I showed it to you all at once, its combined awesome would cook your brain like a toad thrown into the sun.
So for everyone’s safety, we’ll be posting up a new blog every couple of days.
As a new feature this year, you can see *all* the books that have been added to the Lottery so far on our snazzy new Lottery Library page.
Or you can see the individual blogs here:
Last year, we banded together to raise more than $400,000 for Heifer International. It was a stunning display of generosity and goodwill.
This year I’m hoping we can do even better.
To encourage people to donate, we have some stretch goals. Even better, these are going to be fun things that awesome people will do to support the fundraiser. There will be music videos, live writing streams, and maybe even some co-written erotic fiction…
I’ll go into more detail about some of these stretch goals as they get closer. For now, here’s a cool new graphic we have to display stretch goals as we approach and hit them, and the list of the ones coming up.
Upcoming stretch goals include:
$25,000 Peter V. Brett shaves Myke Cole’s head!
$50,000 Paul & Storm re-tool the lyrics for “Write Like the Wind” to fit another slow-writing fantasy author you may have heard of…
$75,000 Jim Hines does a very special, and probably very disturbing, Poser cover parody.
$100,000 Brandon Sanderson invites everyone to a live online stream of one of his writing sessions.
More stretch goals will be added all the time, we’ll be listing them here and on the Worldbuilders website under news.
Note: Worldbuilders ends February 2, 2014 at 11:59 pm CST. To be eligible for the lottery, you must have made your donation on the Team Heifer Page before then.
Option 2: The Sure Thing.
For those of you who aren’t that interested in the lottery, we have some stuff you can just buy from our online store.
We also have foreign editions of many titles, donated and signed by the authors. These are hard to find if you live in the US.
All proceeds go to Worldbuilders, of course.
Additionally, this year we’ve published two calendars. One of them is a Heifer International themed, where each month features a different country, telling the stories of people who have been affected by Heifer’s work.
We’ve also got a fantasy-themed calendar, with fabulous authors such as Christopher Paolini, Cassandra Claire, Tad Williams, and many others.
(Click to embiggen)
There are more pictures from both calendars in The Tinker’s Packs.
We’ll be adding new items to the store throughout the fundraiser, so keep an eye on the blog. If you’re worried you might miss some of the coolness, you can follow the Tinker’s Packs on Twitter and Facebook. We’ll post updates there whenever something new happens.
Option 3: Auctions.
Sometimes we get donations that are really cool…. but they’re only cool for for a select group of people. Some people would squee with delight at winning a portal gun, but other people, (sad, unhappy people) have never played portal, and just don’t care.
The same thing is true with action figures, games, musical instruments, manuscripts, or other collectables.
So we put those things up for auction.
This year we also have professionals willing to read and critique your manuscripts. We have signed art and rare books. We have the chance to win cameo appearances in comics and get your name into upcoming books.
We auction these things off as well.
This year all of our auctions will be launching on Thursday evening, running for ten days, then ending the following Sunday.
There might be a few late additions here and there, but we’ll be working hard to stick to this schedule so everyone will have plenty of time to see what’s up for sale.
All our current auctions are visible over on the Worldbuilders eBay page.
A Few Changes This Year
For one thing, we have a whole new Website. We’ve got a bunch of cool new things there.
But one of the coolest things we have is the ability to look at *all* the books that are currently in the worldbuilders lottery library.
A Plea For Sanity
Lastly, I’d like to ask everyone to please read the instructions/directions carefully before they donate.
I know you’re excited. I’m excited too. We’re going to raise some money, make the world a better place, and end up with big warm fuzzy feelings.
But the more emails we all get about missing addresses, wrong sizes, or forgotten personalization requests, the less time we’re spending on the fundraiser, getting things up, and getting things out. You don’t want that, do you?
I’m sure you don’t. And I’m sure that you’ll read the instructions carefully.
If you have a question about The Tinker’s Packs, you can e-mail the folks there at email@example.com.
If you’d like to donate something to Worldbuilders, or help us spread the word, you can drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All right folks. Are you ready? I’m so ready.
Let’s do this thing.
P.S. Just in case you missed it, here’s one more link to our Team Heifer donation page.
