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.
