Boom! Studios has announced that the debut issue of its Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic reboot (which we first reported on back in September) is going back to the printers for a third time!
The 32-page full-color comic is written by Jordie Bellaire & illustrated by Dan Mora, with letters by Ed Dukeshire, colors by Raul Angulo, and series creator Joss Whedon acting as story consultant. The issue’s main cover art is by Matthew Taylor, with variant covers by Kevin Wada, Royal Dunlap, Becca Carey, Jen Bartel, two pairs of matching Willow covers by Miguel Mercado & Kaiti Infante, an ALA MidWinter 2019 exclusive cover by George Schall, and second & third printing covers by Amelia Vidal:
Boom Studios’ Buffy the Vampire Slayer issue #1 is now available for just $3.99:
The issue will receive a second & third printing on Wednesday, February 20th & Wednesday, March 6th (respectively).
This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends… and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.
