BOOM! Studios has announced artist David Lopez is entering the Buffy-verse for a new arc beginning in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5.
Buffy’s world has turned upside down, and it’s only a matter of time before something comes along to tip her straight over into the darkness, but will she recognize the danger when it arrives or will it sneak into her life and sow the seeds of chaos from within?
Jordie Bellaire will continue to write the series.
“I am overwhelmed with delight that David López is joining the team. I’m a big fan of David’s work,” said writer, Jordie Bellaire. “He’s an incredibly unique, beautifully cartooned and grounded artist. He’ll be a great fit for Buffy in high school and Buffy in hell – I can’t wait to show readers what we do together!”
