IMO, this isn't great news. From the article, it seems like Brian Lynch, not Joss, is going to be running the comic. Also, Joss said it is going to be a 12 issue miniseries. I'll probably say otherwise when it gets released, but if all your going to do is 12 issues (which is maybe equivalent to what, 3 or 4 episodes) and Joss isn't going to run it, why bring it back?
