Come August, Buffy will face off against an antagonist we haven't seen lately. Who is it? None other than the evil interdimensional law firm of Wolfram & Hart.

These nefarious attorneys will be making their return in an upcoming issue of Dark Horse Comics' Buffy series penned by Dollhouse writer Andrew Chambliss. As Dark Horse editor Scott Allie told io9:

Wolfram & Hart are showing up, but not in the title you'd expect, and not in the way you'd expect. The funnest challenge here was figuring out how to portray them. [Artist Georges Jeanty] has, as usual, done a beautiful job, but points to Andrew for the idea that got approved...


Here's an exclusive rundown of this comic, which hits stores August 8:

Andrew Chambliss (W), Georges Jeanty (P/Variant cover), Nathan Massengill (I), Michelle Madsen (C), and Phil Noto (Cover)

By working for Deepscan-the company that recruits Slayers as bodyguards-Buffy thought she would disengage herself from the world of demons and garner a more significant income, to boot. While the income may get her closer to paying off pesky student loans, the demony population is closer to her than ever, thanks to her first client. Buffy, under the tutelage of a disgruntled and heartbroken Kennedy, has her work cut out for her and is forced to call on the honorable Eldre Koh for help, culminating in a little demon-on-demon violence.
