Discover the Shocking Origins of the HELLMOUTH Event in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #8
Your First Look at the Beginning of the Historic Buffy and Angel Event HELLMOUTH in September 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 29, 2019) – BOOM! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, revealed today a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #8, the official prelude to Hellmouth, the historic Buffy & Angel comic book event, from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and acclaimed artist David López (Captain Marvel).
The road to Hellmouth begins in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #8, where the Slayer meets Angel for the very first time! Buffy’s on patrol at her school’s Halloween dance, but instead of demons and monsters, she finds a stranger in a mask who seems to be watching her every move. Meanwhile, across town, someone close to the Scooby Gang makes a fateful decision that has dire consequences for Sunnydale, and leads directly to the event that will change Buffy and Angel’s lives forever in…the HELLMOUTH.
“It’s the moment every fan has been waiting for since Angel first appeared in our all-new Buffyverse. While we may know them as meant-to-be, this Buffy and Angel are a pair of strangers who have been leading very different lives on separate paths,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “But now all roads lead to the Hellmouth, meaning these two heroes will finally meet face to face, altering the fates of everyone in the Buffyverse forever!”
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #8 features a main cover by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, and acclaimed artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Becca Carey (Redlands), Daniele Di Nicuolo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and more; as well as a Hellmouth Connecting Cover by artists Kelly & Nichole Matthews (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #8 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on September 4.
