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 Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Celia Lowenthal (Over The Garden Wall: Hollow Town), and Ryan Inzana (Ichiro).
“There’s no rest for the wicked when the sun goes down on Sunnydale each night – and unfortunately for Buffy, that means she’s probably going to be late trying to finish whatever homework she’s got on her plate,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Audrey captures perfectly the juxtaposition of horror and modern pop in her covers, with a formidable monster...but with an even more formidable hero in our girl Buffy.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on February 13, 2019.
