This weekend, the man that brought us Buffy, Firefly, and Doctor Horrible announced that he’s got a new comic coming down the pipeline with Dark Horse Comics (who also publish the Buffy comics, so clearly the relationship is working out), entitled Twist.
“It’s a Victorian thriller about a meek chambermaid who is fed to a dark horror — but instead of dying, she returns, with knowledge, power, and rage she can neither deny nor control,” Whedon explained in a statement via Dark Horse.
So, Dark Willow meets the Charles Dickens episode of Doctor Who? Whedon, you know us too well. This sounds like an INSANELY cool project (and a property super-primed to be developed into a badass movie or binge-worthy TV show).
So what’s the status on the comic? As Entertainment Weekly reports, the comic will launch as a six-issue mini-series. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but the premise alone is enough to have us X-ing off the days on our wall calendars, until we finally get our Twist fix.
Lastly, we’ll leave you with this teaser image that Dark Horse released.
