Tensions rise as a giant bat strikes in a first look at BOOM! Studios’ “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #3
You’d think that being a vampire would mean that there isn’t much that can harm or alarm you. Based on this first look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3, though, it would appear that the vampiric Spike has his hands full when a giant bat creature attacks.
Not to worry, though, as I’m sure Buffy has something up her sleeve to take care of this winged creature of the night. And even if she doesn’t (unlikely), this is still some fetching artwork from Dan Mora, so check it out below.
Your First Look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3 From BOOM! Studios
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 15, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3, the highly anticipated next chapter of the all new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER monthly comic book series, 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), continue to reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3.
This is Buffy Summers, who wants what every teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, a cute crush, and to escape a destiny as the lone Slayer, hunting vampires and fighting Evil. But things get complicated when several magical power players enter the field, each with their own hidden and perhaps nefarious agenda, leaving Buffy to dive deeper into the dark, supernatural underbelly of Sunnydale in search of answers.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #3 features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with variant covers by artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Matt Smith (Jim Henson’s Storyteller, Lake of Fire), and illustrator Scott Buoncristiano.
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 packs a mean right hook and flying kick but not every threat goes down when you punch it in the face; it’s going to take the fledgling Scooby Gang working together to figure out just what’s going on and who’s pulling the strings.” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Fans will get to see if Team Slayer is ready to face a Big Bad in this issue, or if leveling up and coming to the attention of Team Vamp will end in dire consequences.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on March 13.
