BOOM! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, revealed today that Kendra Young, the iconic Slayer, will make her full First Appearance in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #11, from acclaimed writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and artist David López (Captain Marvel), along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers), available in January 2020.
With a NEW SLAYER in town, it’s up to TEAM KENDRA to save the day! An evil and powerful magic from the open HELLMOUTH has taken over the men of Sunnydale, and it’s up to Willow, Cordelia, and the new Chosen One, Kendra, to fend off the enthralled men of the town or there won’t be a Sunnydale for Buffy to come back to! That is . . . if she’s coming back at all.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #11 features a main cover by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, as well as variant covers by artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Ryan Inzana (Ichiro), and Morgan Beem (The Family Trade), and a connecting variant cover by artist Steve Morris (The Magicians: Alice’s Story) that connects to ANGEL #8 and HELLMOUTH #4.
Created by visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers film franchise), Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5th, 1999 and was a spin-off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The series ran for five seasons from 1999–2004, starring David Boreanaz as Angel, the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul who moved to LA to set up shop as a supernatural private investigator. Despite Angel’s best efforts to deal with the sins of his past all by himself, Angel Investigations soon became home to other lost souls searching for redemption and willing to fight by his side.
