With Buffy the Vampire Slayer hitting a 20 year anniversary, Dark Horse is taking readers back to high school with the third installment of Buffy: The High School Years — Parental Parasite.
In Parental Parasite, Buffy struggles to deal with her mother Joyce’s sudden interest in spending quality time with her. Balancing this new development with her schoolwork, her friends, and her regular vampire-slaying duties proves to be a challenge. However, when Joyce becomes hypnotized by a childlike demon that craves motherly care, Buffy experiences a new kind of sibling rivalry—except in Buffy’s case, her “sibling” is actually a monster!
Parental Parasite is set during Season 1 of the television series, so expect to see a lot of the library, and lots of hellmouth references. This also means we should get more Cordelia Chase…
Parental Parasite is scheduled to arrive on June 28, 2017.
