Here are a couple of (SPOILERY) previews for the next Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic, Issue #36, with art featuring James Marsters' Spike:

Things have been heating up lately in the Buffy-verse thanks to recent events in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight," but it's good to know the creative team responsible for the hit series is still having fun with Buffy, Angel, Spike and the rest of the gang.

Take, for example, the upcoming cover by "Buffy" artist Georges Jeanty for issue #36 of the series, revealed exclusively to Spash Page by Dark Horse Comics:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Look familiar?

Just in case it's not ringing any bells, here's one of the first posters for "Twilight: New Moon," featuring an entirely different breed of vampire than Angel or Spike.

Twilight: New Moon

Brilliant, eh?

I was curious to see how Jo Chen's cover of #36!
mmm spike! ^-^

Jo Chen's cover is stunning, isn't it?! She's a fantastic artist.

And Georges Jeanty's cover makes me giggle. :)

She is very talented. I only buy her covers when I go buy my buffy s8 comics.
Don't get me wrong Jeanty's covers are nice as well. But I love how Chen's look so realistic.

That's what I love about them as well. They're so detailed, and just beautiful to look at. :)

P.S. In case you missed it, Jo's revised the Spike cover, because the one above has brown eyes, and is scarless, so it's fixed up now: http://dontkillspike.livejournal.com/126912.html#cutid1
