Xander Faces Danger on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #4 Cover
All-New Cover Reveal for The Most-Anticipated Pop Culture ReVAMP of 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 9, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled the main cover to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #4 by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor featuring Xander Harris surrounded by vampires! This vital chapter of the hotly anticipated series will debut in stores April 3, 2019, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. Catch the first appearance of a major character in Buffy’s life in this issue, as well as the life-altering turn of events that changes one character’s destiny forever.
The reimagining of Joss Whedon's groundbreaking series reaches the game-changing final chapter of the first arc as Buffy and the Scooby Gang (the name was Xander’s idea, he’s workshopping it, it probably won’t stick) delve deeper into the heart of Sunnydale’s underbelly—and make a shocking discovery about the true nature of the Hellmouth. There’s no turning back for anyone on Team Slayer in this absolutely mind-blowing issue that fans can’t afford to miss.
Welcome back to the Hellmouth, as 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.
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 #4 features main covers by fan favorite artist Kevin Wada (She-Hulk) and illustrator Feifei Ruan (Descendant of the Crane, Jim Henson’s Storyteller).
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #4 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on April 3.
