BOOM! Studios has announced the first big event for its Buffy universe as Buffy and Angel team for Hellmouth, a five-issue mini-series from Jordie Bellaire, Jeremy Lambert, and Eleonora Carlini.
Buffy and her Scooby Gang will have to muster all their strength as they deal with an open Hellmouth that threatens the lives of everyone they love in Sunnydale. Meanwhile, Angel, the vampire cursed with a soul, arrives in town to find his redemption by doing whatever it takes to close the Hellmouth…and no human, demon or Slayer will stand in his way.
“The Hellmouth is finally open and the wheels are coming off! I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this event with Jeremy Lambert, one of my closest friends in the universe, and Eleonora Carlini, whose art is just brilliant.”said writer Jordie Bellaire. “We’ve got a lot planned for readers!”
“Buffy and Angel’s paths were always headed for a head-on collision, and HELLMOUTH is where they finally meet face-to-face for the first time, although it’s not going to go necessarily how you might think,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Buffy’s got no reason to trust a vampire, even one with a soul, and she might have cost Angel the only chance he’d ever get to become a human again, so there’s bad blood between the two, meaning it’ll be twice as difficult to save the world from the HELLMOUTH as Buffy and Angel butt heads!”
Hellmouth #1 is scheduled to arrive on October 9, 2019.
