We’re getting our Slayer on by revealing a special cover today from Boom! Studios for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5, one created by artist Becca Carey.
The cover homages Dopppelgangland, a fan-favorite episode from the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it will land in stores on June 5, 2019.
Issue #5 will kick off a brand new story arc as Team Slayer deals with the devastating consequences of Xander becoming a vampire.
Boom! Studios teases:
Buffy and the Scooby Gang have lost one of their own to Team Vamp but what if there’s a way to get their friend back? The Slayer will walk the line between responsibility and rampage as she searches for anything that’ll bring back her friend, balancing her quest with her duties as the Slayer without losing anyone else in the process. What do you do when your entire purpose is killing vampires and your friend just turned into one?
Here’s our exclusive reveal of that cover art!
Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and artist David López (Captain Marvel), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more), will be bringing us this new arc.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 features cover art by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall and talented artists Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Morgan Beem (The Family Trade), and Yasmine Putri (Nightwing).
Print copies of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 will be available for sale on June 5, 2019 exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
