Brian K Vaughan Joins "Lost" Writing Staff & Buffy Season 8 Comic

Now, there's some good fuckin' news

Vaughan's hiring on the massive hit genre show follows that of other award-winning comics writers Jeph Loeb and Paul Dini. But like them, Vauaghan promises that his new job won't remove him from the comics scene. “I'm absolutely not leaving comics. There are a lot of ‘Y: The Last Man' and ‘Ex Machina' fans at the show, so everyone has been great about leaving me just enough time to work on those books, and even some new ones, including an upcoming four-issue stint on that Runaways guy Joss Whedon's ‘eighth season' of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer' [comic] over at Dark Horse.”

Vaughan indicated that some of the scripts for forthcoming “Lost” episodes are in his view among the series' best episodes.

It's been a good season so far. in fact, it's been much much better than I thought it was going to be, so I have no trouble believing that there's good stuff in the pipeline.

I do hope they let Vaughan express a bit of his own auctorial style in his scripts -- his quick witted banter-style of dialogue, in particular, a tonal shift which could bring some much-needed laughs without actually betraying the seriousness of the story situations.
