DC’s Vampire Diaries bi-weekly digital comic launches tomorrow – Halloween! – and Newsarama has an interview with the series’ writers, Colleen Doran and B. Clay Moore about what fans can expect. The comic will explore various unanswered questions and show mythology, though never delving into storylines past what has aired on TV.
Doran: …We’re in a position where, it’s not like Buffy, where you do a comic after the show is over. [The Vampire Diaries is] still going on. They’re still creating their canon. And we’ve got to make sure that whatever we come up with doesn’t interfere with that.
Clay and I have looked for things that haven’t been explained, looked for things that are just missing and have never been filled in by the show.
And of course, it helps that I can sit down and write it down, then send it off to see if the powers-that-be like the explanation that I’ve come up with.
The first story, for example, deals with the background of vervain. There are a couple things that have never been explained in the show. And I think I came up with a good explanation for that.
Stay tuned for more info on how you can subscribe to the comic when it launches tomorrow!
