Buffy motion comics on the way

Season eight adaptation begins voice casting.

buffy2-1Season Eight, the popular series of comics that continued the Buffy The Vampire Slayer storyline after the show’s final season on television, will be broadcast as motion comics on the internet, it has been confirmed.

Sci-Fi Wire recently posted the casting sides for the series that have been released to agents, detailing the characters and what they are looking for. It seems that the original cast won’t be returning to voice the project, with the producers looking for talent to mimic the vocal affectations of Eliza Dushku, Lyari Limon and, oddly, Daniel Craig.
