The All-New Scooby Gang VS. The HELLMOUTH in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9


“High school can be hell and no one knows that better than Buffy the Vampire Slayer, who returns to her teenage roots in a new comic book series from BOOM! Studios.”—The New York Times

“Whether you’re a new fan or old, reading through this debut feels like the first exciting step on a new adventure. Welcome back to the Hellmouth, Buffy. We’ve missed you.”—CBR

“Slayers, vamps, witches, Watchers and innocent bystanders everywhere will want to follow this new era from day one.”—Paste Magazine

BOOM! Studios revealed today, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9 from 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), reimagining the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon. 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.”

Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to critically acclaimed original series, including Once & Future by Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora; Faithless by Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet; Abbott from Saladin Ahmed and Sami Kivelä; Bury the Lede from Gaby Dunn and Claire Roe; Grass Kings from Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins; and Klaus from Grant Morrison and Dan Mora.
