Willow weighs the high cost of saving Xander's soul in a first look at BOOM! Studios' "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" #7

Is there a price too high to pay to save a loved one? The easy answer is “no,” but… what would we actually do if we were in such a situation? One where we would have to make a great sacrifice to save someone from certain doom?

In the pages of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Willow is discovering that the cost of saving Xander’s soul was much higher than she anticipated. Check out the preview of issue 7 below, with a first look at David López’s stunning pencils. Even without dialogue, he’s telling a story that, at first glance, is somewhat humorous, but quickly turns nightmarish the more you read.

Willow’s Darkest Nightmares Come True in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 15, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, as acclaimed artist David López (Captain Marvel) joins Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more), to reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon. Available in stores August 2019.

The Scoobies may have saved Xander’s soul but it means that Willow got mixed up in magic way over her head. And that has consequences, starting with a living nightmare where Willow realizes that the sacrifice she made could mean that she’s lost something important she’ll never be able to recover.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #7 features cover art by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, and acclaimed artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Sonia Liao, and more.

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 #7 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on August 7.
