Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered on the WB Network on March 10th, 1997. The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series, which ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.” Chosen to battle vampires, demons and other forces of darkness, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides and teaches her as she surrounds herself with a circle of friends called the “Scooby Gang.”
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #2 features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with covers by Celia Lowenthal (Over The Garden Wall: Hollow Town), Ryan Inzana (Ichiro) and Audrey Mok (Archie).
“Willow is one of the most important characters in pop culture history, and I’m thrilled that Jordie and Dan are able to reimagine her as a modern teenager,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Kevin perfectly captures the essence of Willow – her joy, humor and warmth – in a stunning new cover spotlighting everyone’s favorite teenage witch.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on February 13, 2019.
