Buffy the Vampire Slayer Stakes Out a New Home at BOOM! Studios

IGN exclusive first details on Buffy’s big move.

By Joshua Yehl

Comic books featuring Buffy the Vampire Slayer now have a new home at publisher BOOM! Studios

The license for comics based on the Joss Whedon-created franchise previously belonged to Dark Horse Comics and now, after 20 years, it will be moving to a new comic publisher for the first time. BOOM! has plans to release new Buffy monthly comic series, limited series, graphic novels, and more in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

During Buffy’s time at Dark Horse, numerous tie-in comics were produced, most notably a series of comics supervised (and sometimes written) by Whedon that continued from where the television show left off, titled Season Eight, Nine, Ten and so on. The final issue of Season Twelve released yesterday, and the trade paperback for Season Twelve, out on December 12, will be Dark Horse’s final Buffy publication. All previously published Buffy comics will be fair game for re-publication under BOOM!. Dark Horse’s Buffy license expires at the end of 2018, so BOOM! will be free to publish Buffy comics starting in 2019, although an official launch date has yet to be revealed.

“I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over 20 years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are,” BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement provided to IGN. “Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

BOOM! also publishes comics based on popular franchises Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Adventure Time, and Planet of the Apes, among others, in addition to original series like Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, and the award-winning hit Lumberjanes.

BOOM! Studios Acquires Buffy the Vampire Slayer License

BOOM! Studios has partnered with 20th Century Fox for a new line of Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics, graphic novels and more.



Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer has found a new publishing home at BOOM! Studios.

Announced today by IGN, BOOM! will partner with 20th Century Fox to release new comic book series, limited series, original graphic novels and more, all centered around the Buffy franchise.

“I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over twenty years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are,” BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer tells IGN. “Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

Promotional art for the announcement shows Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Buffy Summers standing in front of her high school, a pack of zombies with a cell phone in one hand and a wooden stake in the other, highlighted with the phrase, “High School is Hell.”



In an interview with CBR in August, Whedon revealed Fox’s plans to pull the Buffy and Firefly licenses from Dark Horse, ending a 20-year relationship between the property and the publisher.

Debuting on The WB Television Network in 1997, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ran for seven seasons and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.” 20th Century Fox Television is working on a Buffy reboot alongside Whedon, with the series set to feature a black actress in the title role.


I'm surprised that they are announcing it this early.I figured next year or maybe at NYCC in a few weeks.The day after the final Dark Horse issue hits is a surprise.

Based on the artwork,it looks like we are returning to high school.But is this new stories set in the season 1-3 era or a reboot because Buffy is sporting modern tech..

New BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Comic Book Series Launching at a New Publisher

By Chris Arrant, Editor September 20, 2018

https://img.purch.com/o/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8yMzcvNDk3L2kwMi83Y2FzdDAyMC5qcGc=

BOOM! Studios has acquired the comic book license for Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, following 20 years exclusively at Dark Horse Comics. First reported by IGN, BOOM! plans to launch a new Buffy monthly title, as well as limited series and graphic novels.

"I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over 20 years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are," said BOOM! Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer.

"Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

Dark Horse's last original Buffy issue, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 12, The Reckoning #4, was released this week. A collection of that limited series is due out December 12, with Dark Horse's license expiring at the end of 2018.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is owned by 20th Century Fox, which owns a stake in BOOM! Studios. Neither BOOM! nor Fox have stated how the impending Walt Disney Company acquisition of Fox will impact BOOM! or the Buffy franchise.

BOOM! Studios is scheduled to begin publishing Buffy in 2019.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics find a new home at BOOM! Studios



Just one month after it was announced the franchise would leave Dark Horse Comics after two decades, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has a new publishing home.

According to IGN, BOOM! Studios has partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to pick up the Buffy comic book license beginning next year, giving the publisher the right to publish all new ongoing and limited comic book series about Buffy and her various friends and enemies.

“I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over 20 years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are,” BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement provided to IGN. “Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

https://twitter.com/IGN/status/1042760559203151873

Dark Horse published the final issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve this week, marking the end of two decades of tie-in comics that most famously included a continuation of the Buffy saga after the show went off the air in 2003. Buffy creator Joss Whedon returned to Dark Horse to help finish that incarnation of the Buffy story this year, but it's not clear if he'll now follow the franchise over to BOOM! Dark Horse's final Buffy publication will be the Season Twelve trade paperback collection in December, and BOOM! will take over the license for the property beginning in 2019.

That said, BOOM! has not yet announced any concrete plans for what it will do with Buffy once it has the franchise. The publisher will reportedly have the right to reprint any of the Dark Horse material it wants, so it could presumably consider all of that to be canonical, or it could strike out on its own. However it all shakes out, this a chance for BOOM! — a publisher already known for hits like Lumberjanes and an acclaimed line of comics based on the Adventure Time TV series — to make its mark on one of the most beloved genre franchises of the past three decades just as Buffy is heading into reboot territory.

We'll bring you more details on Buffy's new comic book home as we get them. For now, just know that the lull in new comics from the world of the Slayer will not be a very long one.

EXCLUSIVE: Whedon, Bellaire & Mora Lead Buffy The Vampire Slayer Comic Reboot

Stephen Gerding CBR Exclusives

Joss Whedon is overseeing BOOM! Studios' reboot of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics, with creators Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora.



Today, BOOM! Studios finally unveiled the creative team that will be responsible for helming the publisher’s imminent Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic, along with new details on how the new comic fits — or doesn’t — into the previous run at Dark Horse Comics.

CBR can exclusively reveal that writer Jordie Bellaire and artist Dan Mora are working with creator and story consultant Joss Whedon to reboot the entire Buffy concept from day one.

Artist Matthew Taylor is providing the series with its main cover, while a line up including Kevin Wada, Royal Dunlap, Becca Carey and Jen Bartel will produce variants. You can check out a few of them in the gallery below.

The series’ official synopsis reads:

This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.

WELCOME BACK TO THE HELLMOUTH, FOR THE FIRST TIME!

“Buffy has brought my life so much joy and to be part of that now is ridiculously overwhelming on many levels,” Bellaire said in a statement. “My very favorite aspect of Buffy is how we have a wide group of characters that love each other, hurt each other and sometimes, they even kill each other. I can’t wait to dabble within that universe to find new stories, explore older ones and forever maintain the theme of self discovery and growing up, whatever that means.”

“It’s an exciting opportunity to be part of reimagining and redesigning the world of Buffy for a modern era while also honoring its exciting history,” Mora had to say about rebuilding the Scooby Gang from the ground up. “The series offers a unique mix of horror, action and the experience of being a teenager where it feels like the world is ending – and in this case, it might!”

“The world of Buffy The Vampire Slayer has been so richly developed over the last twenty years, so when it came time for us to decide where to take the franchise under Joss’ guidance, there was only one answer in our minds – reimagining the story of Buffy and the Gang for a new generation,” Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said of the reboot. “The world right now is scarier than it’s ever been; placing these characters firmly in 2019, we can use the themes that were so integral to the show — identity, agency, and empathy — to examine our world and the heroes and monsters that lurk inside all of us…and punch those monsters right in the face. Whether you’re a long time member of the Scooby Gang or totally new to the world of the Chosen One, Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 was made for you.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1, by Jordie Bellaire, Dan Mora and Joss Whedon, arrives Wednesday, January 9 from BOOM! Studios

JOSS WHEDON Leads BOOM! in 'Reimagining and Redesigning' BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER for Comic Books

By George Marston, Newsarama Contributor
October 5, 2018

https://img.purch.com/o/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8yMzgvNTgyL2kwMi9CdWZmeS0wMDEtTWFpbi1QUk9NTy0yLmpwZw==

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon will work as a "story consultant" with BOOM! Studios to reboot Buffy the Vampire Slayer for comic books, according to CBR.

BOOM!'s plans to launch new Buffy comic books were reported earlier this year with no creative team attached. Artists Dan Mora and Jordie Bellaire will join Whedon on the reboot which, in Mora's words, will bring a whole new look to the world of Buffy Summers.

“It’s an exciting opportunity to be part of reimagining and redesigning the world of Buffy for a modern era while also honoring its exciting history,” Mora told CBR. “The series offers a unique mix of horror, action and the experience of being a teenager where it feels like the world is ending – and in this case, it might!”

“Buffy has brought my life so much joy and to be part of that now is ridiculously overwhelming on many levels,” added Bellaire. “My very favorite aspect of Buffy is how we have a wide group of characters that love each other, hurt each other and sometimes, they even kill each other. I can’t wait to dabble within that universe to find new stories, explore older ones and forever maintain the theme of self discovery and growing up, whatever that means.”

Here's the official synopsis for the rebooted series:

"This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell. WELCOME BACK TO THE HELLMOUTH, FOR THE FIRST TIME!"

Is This Comics’ New Buffy, Or Is It A Different Fan-Favorite Slayer?



Brandon Zachary

A variant cover for BOOM! Studios reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer might tease a familiar slayer's new look.

In 1997, Buffy the Vampire Slayer rebooted an otherwise forgettable cheesy teen flick into one of the most influential television series of the era. Now even as there’s a revamp (ha!) of the television show currently in the works, BOOM! Studios has also announced a reboot of the franchise’s comic book incarnation.

Much like the television show, the new comic will be a full blown modern reboot. While it will still center around Buffy Summers coming to Sunnydale and combating the evils that spawn from the local Hellmouth alongside her friends, it will kick off with a teenage Buffy in the modern day, with an eye towards accurately reflecting the current world.

The comic, which is being helmed by Joss Whedon, Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora, has released four covers for the upcoming first issue. While two of them show off a familiar looking version of Buffy, and a third focuses on the Hellmoth under SUnnydale High School, the fourth variant (by Royal Dunlap) features a decidedly different looking Slayer.

Is this variant cover just that, a cool looking take on the premise and nothing more? Or does the cover hint at a new take on a classic character from the original series?

Is It Buffy?



One theory suggests that it’s just a variant cover, that it’s simply a different look at Buffy Summers. Of course, it would stand to reason that BOOM! would be making a bigger deal out of recasting Buffy as a young African-American woman, which isn’t part of the initial announcement.

The other two character covers suggest we’ll be seeing a Buffy that more resembles Sarah Michelle Geller in the comic. Thus, the variant might just be that: A one-off alternate cover by a talented artist that wonders how the character could look, not how they will look. It’s worth noting, though, that characters created for variant covers sometimes take on a life of their own, though, like Marvel’s Gwenpool.

Is It Kendra?



The stake in the character’s hand suggests that this is probably a Slayer, or at least someone who knows how to handle themselves like one. If you eliminate Buffy as a candidate, the next logical guess would be to suggest that it’s a new take on Kendra, perhaps hinting at a larger role in the rebooted comic’s mythology.

Trained from her youth in case she was ever called upon to be the Slayer, Kendra arrived in Sunnydale, having been empowered after Buffy’s brief death while fighting the Master. She doesn’t last long, though, as she’s pretty quickly killed by Drusilla.

The comics could be looking to explore and expand Kendra in a way the original show never could, which would explain her prominence in the variants. But we’re not sure. The Slayer on the variant cover has an edge of grunge to her that the proper Kendra never exhibited. It could just be a character change, but we’ll see.

Is It Faith? (Please Let It Be Faith)

Another idea suggests that this could be our first glimpse not at Buffy or Kendra, but at another Slayer: Faith. The third Slayer on the series was introduced after Kendra was killed. Rough around the edges, Faith made for a compelling anti-hero and complicated piece of the show’s over-arching story, alternating between hero and villain over the course of the series’ eight seasons.

Faith, a dark reflection of what Buffy could become if she lost control of herself, eventually found redemption thanks to help from Angel and Buffy during the spin-off series Angel and the final season of Buffy, respectively.

Little things about the character introduced on the variant suggest it might be Faith. The Florida license plate on her car suggests she’s been on the run, which is how Faith is introduced in the original series. Mind you, she comes from Boston in the original continuity, but shifting her to Florida for this reboot would be easy enough. The general aura of toughness and confidence the character exudes on the cover fits more in with Faith than the friendly and strong-willed Buffy, or the precise and sheltered Kendra.



And to be honest? This would actually be a really good design for Faith. It’s confident and cool without trying too hard. She’s battered in the kind of way that a real brawler would be. If it is Faith, it also suggests that recasting and rebooting the series for a more modern audience is being seen to fruition. This could indicate that they’re diversifying the original show’s otherwise completely Caucasian cast, which today is for the best.

The only other character who it could really be is India Cohen, a character who has only appeared in comics and was the immediate predecessor to Buffy in the Slayer line. But we hope it’s not, because that would likely mean she isn’t long for this world before Buffy takes over for her.

In the end, this is probably just a variant cover. But there’s so much personality to this character design, especially if applied to it being Faith, that we hope it instead speaks to the direction the comic is going in moving forward. This is too cool of a Slayer look to waste on a throwaway image.

Joss Whedon announced as story consultant on new Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic

Fans of Buffy got a vampire-busting treat today as the creative team behind the upcoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic reboot was revealed by BOOM! Studios to include none other than Mister Buffy himself: Joss Whedon. The series creator will be on board the upcoming comic's team as a story consultant.

Boom! also revealed that the comic will be a full reboot, starting the demon fighter's story over from its beginning, and setting it in the world of 2019, not as a continuation of the previous Dark Horse comic. "The world right now is scarier than it's ever been; placing these characters firmly in 2019, we can use the themes that were so integral to the show--identity, agency and empathy--to examine our world and the heroes and monsters that lurk inside all of us...and punch those monsters right in the face," said executive editor Jeanine Schaefer, via a press release.

Eisner Award nominee Jordie Bellaire is on board as the writer, alongside artist Dan Mora. Issue #1's main cover will be drawn by Matthew Taylor, with variants by Kevin Wada, Royal Dunlap, Becca Carey, and Jen Bartel.
