Here’s Your First Look at Fifty-Year Old Buffy in Boom’s Buffy The Last Vampire Slayer#1

The Fall Of The Slayer

BOOM! Studios, in collaboration with 20th Television, revealed a first look at Buffy The Vampire Slayer #1, the first issue in a brand new four-issue comic book series out December 2021. From acclaimed writer Casey Gilly (Femme Magnifique, Star Wars Adventures) and artist Joe Jaro (Firefly) comes a dystopian tale of the iconic Slayer, Buffy Summers, like you’ve never seen her before…

Can a lone Slayer save what’s left of humanity? Buffy Summers is the last Slayer. Now in her 50s, she wages a one woman fight against the forces of darkness, who prey on humanity in the daylight unimpeded thanks to a magical catastrophe that has nearly blotted out the sun. The same disaster robbed Buffy of her friends and ended the Slayer-line, forcing her into an endless guerilla war. That is, until she stumbles across something she hasn’t seen in a long time – hope, in the form of a prophecy and the young girl who carries it…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered on March 10th, 1997. The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003. Chosen to battle vampires, demons and other forces of darkness, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides and teaches her as she surrounds herself with a circle of friends called the Scooby Gang.

BUFFY THE LAST VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 features main cover art by acclaimed illustrator Ario Anindito (Star Wars: The High Republic) and variant cover art by fan favourite artists Rod Reis (New Mutants), Dani Pendergast (Magic),  Jakub Rebelka (Judas, Origins), Claire Roe (Bury the Lede), and Giuseppe Camuncoli (Undiscovered Country).
