Fresh Details Revealed for New BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Comic Series
A few weeks ago, we learned that the comic book rights of Buffy the Vampire Slayer were acquired by BOOM! Studios. We weren’t given any real details other than a teaser poster that showed Buffy with a smartphone. This has led to speculation that the vampire slayer would get the reboot treatment via comics. If you thought that’s what was happening, you have earned yourself a prize. It’s just like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Same characters, but with an updated setting. This worked really well for Power Rangers in my opinion, so I don’t think Buffy fans have much to fear.
In addition to the synopsis, we finally know who will bring the comics to life as well. Jordie Bellaire will be writing the stories and Dan Mora will be providing the art. Joss Whedon will be a story consultant. Bellaire released the following statement to express her excitement:
Mora also released a statement:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 will be available January 9, 2019.
