“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #7 covers feature Willow, her track star crush, and a Slayer from another time
BOOM! Studios just keep that Buffy news coming, and we’re here for it. Today they’ve revealed three separate covers for August’s issue 7, and you’ll just have to decide for yourself which one’s the best.
The main cover from Marc Aspinall shows Willow in a state of duress, while Kevin Wada’s variant features Willow’s new crush and track team star Robin Wood. Both are great, but my personal favorite is Sonia Liao’s variant, which features one of the Buffyverse’s historical Chosen Ones. Check them all out below, and let us know your favorite cover in the comments.
Willow Deals with Sacrifice in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 21, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, unveiled three BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7covers by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, artist Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), and artist Sonia Liao (Kulipari), available in August 2019.
The Scoobies are in disarray, and after the huge sacrifices she made last issue, Willow is still grappling with the consequences of losing such a monumental piece of her life. Was the sacrifice worth it? Or does this spell the end for the Scooby Gang as Buffy’s friends and family deal with the fallout from recent events and attempt to put the pieces of their lives back together?
Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and acclaimed artist David López (Captain Marvel), 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 for a new generation of comic book fans.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7 features three main covers. Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall depicts a desperate Willow using her fledgling magical abilities to try to save her best friend, Xander, from his vampire self. Fan favorite artist Kevin Wada spotlights Buffy’s current crush, fellow Sunnydale student and captain of the track team, Robin Wood. And rising star artist Sonia Liao’s Chosen One cover features a katana-wielding Slayer from 16th Century Japan.
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 #7 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on August 7.
