Buffy fights boredom and monsters in a first look at “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #1

In some ways, Buffy Summers has it made: she has a great group of friends, along with a ridiculous set of skills she uses to hunt vampires, monsters, and the like.  As a Slayer, though, she’s almost cursed to have to be the world’s best defense against said vampires, monsters, and the like.

Another curse?  Having to have a job.  In this first look at the highly anticipated Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 from BOOM! Studios, Buffy fights the doldrums of a slow night at a fast food joint before a much more exciting (but much more dangerous) fight against a monster after she gets off.  Check out the details and gallery below, and revel in the spot-on likenesses of Buffy, Willow and Xander, along with a fight scene that’s brilliantly choreographed by Dan Mora.

BOOM! Studios Unveils A New Look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1

An Exclusive Look at the Hotly Anticipated Pop Culture ReVAMP in 2019

 LOS ANGELES, CA (December 13, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1, the highly anticipated start of the all new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER monthly comic book series that will debut on January 23rd, 2019, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Klaus, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), 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 from the very beginning in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1.

This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends...and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.

WELCOME BACK TO THE HELLMOUTH, FOR THE FIRST TIME!

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with variant covers by superstar Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Royal Dunlap (Spitball), Becca Carey (Bitch Planet), and Jen Bartel (Blackbird).

Fans can join the fight between Good and Evil by choosing between two special interactive variant covers from acclaimed artist Miguel Mercado (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). Hold each one up to your face to reveal your inner Slayer or inner Demon! Will you stand with the Chosen One (#TeamSlayer) or will you side with the Vampires (#TeamVamp)?

You can also track down two rare variant covers from artist Kaiti Infante that depict fan favorite Willow Rosenberg on both sides of the battle, one as Buffy’s best friend and the other…as Vampire Willow?!

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, starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.” Chosen to battle vampires, demons and other forces of darkness, Buffy was aided by her Watcher, Rupert Giles, and a circle of friends known as the “Scooby Gang.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on January 23, 2019.
