Now that Angel is part of the new BOOM! Studios Buffy universe, it’s time get the two characters together. BOOM! Studios has revealed the Kevin Wada variant cover for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5.
The reimagining of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking hit pop culture series kicks off a brand new story arc as Team Slayer deals with the devastating consequences of Xander becoming a vampire. Buffy and the Scooby Gang have lost one of their own to Team Vamp but what if there’s a way to get their friend back? The Slayer will walk the line between responsibility and rampage as she searches for anything that’ll bring back her friend, balancing her quest with her duties as the Slayer without losing anyone else in the process. What do you do when your entire purpose is killing vampires and your friend just turned into one?
High school is hell, as Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and acclaimed artist David López (Captain Marvel), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more), reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon for a new generation of comic book fans.
As a bonus, BOOM! Studios also released the Xander variant cover by Yasmine Putri. If you haven’t been reading Buffy, and wonder why Xander is vamping out, we’ve got some bad news for you…
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 is scheduled to arrive in stores on June 5th, 2019.
