The Scooby Gang encounter the Hellmouth in November’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #9
It’s a double dose of Buffy, two days in a row on BOOM! Studios’ Road to San Diego. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel comics will be crossing over later this year as part of the “Hellmouth” arc, and BOOM! are going big. Really big.
Check out the details for Buffy’s ninth outing under the BOOM! Studios banner, along with a handful of nifty covers to boot.
HELLMOUTH is Coming to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 9, 2019) – BOOM! Studios is proud to continue The Road to San Diego, a ten-day spotlight on the most exciting comic book and graphic novel news in advance of Comic Con International in San Diego (July 17–21), with the announcement of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. 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 where the Slayer goes missing just as an evil force arises from the HELLMOUTH and threatens to take over all of Sunnydale, available in stores November 2019.
The events of the historic Buffy and Angel event, HELLMOUTH, have left the town of Sunnydale without its Slayer. And since Buffy’s missing in action, it’s up to the All-New Scooby Gang of Cordelia, Robin, Willow and Xander to save everyone in town. There’s just one problem—the Hellmouth is spreading evil throughout the city, putting everyone under its thrall. As the inhabitants of Sunnydale turn on one another, will the Scooby Gang be enough to save the town from utter chaos and destruction?
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9 features cover art by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, and acclaimed artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Ryan Inzana (Ichiro), and Cara McGee (Black Canary: Ignite), as well as a connecting variant cover by artist Goñi Montes (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) that connects to HELLMOUTH #2 and ANGEL #6.
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 #9 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on November 6.
