Feast Your Eyes on Kevin Wada’s Handsome Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3 Variant Cover

Giles Goes Full Librarian Daddy

By Steve Foxe | December 3, 2018



Last week, BOOM! Studios showed off the clearest look yet at what to expect from their upcoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer “reVAMP,” with a full roster of artist Dan Mora’s designs for Sunnydale’s famous residents. Written by Redlands’ Jordie Bellaire and overseen by series creator Joss Whedon, this new take on the franchise resets the clock to the Scooby Gang’s high-school years, but with more contemporary flair. Following years of additional “seasons” at longtime publisher Dark Horse Comics, this more accessible pitch stands to attract both lapsed fans and newer generations who didn’t grow up with Sarah Michelle Gellar and company.

Frequent Mondo poster designer Matt Taylor is providing gorgeous, likeness-perfect primary covers for the launch, along with variants from illustrators like Matt Smith and Scott Buoncristiano, but few artists capture style and attitude like Kevin Wada, who has lent his painted style to everything from Marvel’s She-Hulk and Iceman to Rainbow Rowell book covers to The Wicked + The Divine’s fashion issue.

“There’s a lot of important lessons in Buffy, but one of the most resonant and truest ones is this: librarians are total badasses,” BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement. “And, as Kevin Wada dreamily illustrates, they’re pretty easy on the eyes, too. Rupert Giles has a huge role to play in this series and we’ll learn that he’s much more than he appears—and we don’t just mean the fact that, if you haven’t heard, he’s quite good at playing an acoustic version of ‘Stairway to Heaven.’”

Wada contributes variant covers for Buffy’s initial arc, and you can check out an exclusive first look at his artwork for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3, on shelves March 13th, 2019, below. Be sure to check back at Paste in the coming months as Buffy picks up her wooden stakes once again.

Anopther Buffy # 3 variant cover.

Scott Buoncristiano Homages “Hush” In Buffy The Vampire Slayer #3 Cover

by Hannah Means Shannon

We’re pleased to be the first to reveal a new variant cover for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3 coming in March from Boom! Studios and created by the horror artist Scott Buoncristiano (Harry Potter: Magical Film Projections, Dead Rabbit).

His cover has been designed as a tribute to the iconic television episode “Hush” in the new series born of a partnership between Boom! Studios and 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. The series is written by Eisner Award-nominated Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and illustrated by Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Klaus, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more).



In the third issue of the series, we’ll find “Buffy and the Scooby Gang (the name was Xander’s idea, he’s workshopping it, it probably won’t stick)” uncovering more about Sunnydale’s dark underbelly and making a “shocking discovery” about the nature of the Hellmouth. Drusilla, Spike, and Cordelia will also feature.

As you probably know, Buffy The Vampire Slayer originally premiered on the WB Network on March 10th, 1997 and ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer features a main cover by Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), along with a variant cover by Matt Smith (Barbarian Lord).

Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor at Boom! Studios, says of the new cover:

Some episodes of Buffy make you sad or happy or excited or maybe even terrified. But ‘Hush’ made you feel all of them at the same time and it’s one of the reasons it remains a high watermark for storytelling. Scott Buoncristiano’s cover conjures up that emotional stake to the heart perfectly on this cover, as we continue our tribute the best episodes of Buffy.

Print copies of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #3 will be available for sale on March 13th, 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.

Who knew I would miss (my least favorite?) Cordelia in the early seasons.

Are we missing "anybody" on these covers?( snerk) Dunno, just the point of watching for many of us fans. (Do we even have to discuss B/A? I am 'where am I' after so many years of being spun?

To answer you re your approach to Angelus "first" showing up, I am not sure if these comics can establish such a convoluted argument on the purpose of a "soul" that stood for identity, immortal good or Godly gift, conscience, personality, super ego, et al others. I imagine, comic, that you are right in your idea that it will be a "presto' kind of spell, as was shown with the gypsies. (Sorry, for the word). I don't know what this approach means in regard to destiny and fate, even if the idea of "control" or lack of it is definitely "up for grabs." (And that means anyone can have their soul removed? Or just 'dead people'--maybe in the condition of approaching "undead" or "coalescing" (consider the reflection in a mirror to show this) toward being 'human." Just playing with your startling idea and finding out it could work!

Hugs!

First interior art from BOOM! Buffy # 1

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer': Exclusive First Look at New Series

By Jamie Lovett - December 13, 2018

Buffy is back! ComicBook.com has an exclusive first look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1, kicking off the new series from Boom! Studios.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer comes from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Klaus, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon acting as story consultant.

The new series reimagines Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the beginning, putting Buffy Summers and the Scoobies back in high school, but in a world that looks a lot more like our world does today than it did in 1996.

The new series will return to the “high school is hell” concept, with Buffy trying to balance her responsibilities as the Slayer with making new friends at a new school, passing the next pop quiz, and maybe having some fun along the way.

“Once you fight your way through all the monsters of the week and threats around every corner, Buffy is about something we’ve all experienced – the awkward, uncomfortable journey of figuring out who we choose to be. Dan Mora captures the spirit of that struggle with the perfect style and attitude for slaying the monsters hiding in the dark...and in the light of day,” Boom! executive editor Jeanine Schaefer said previously. “As you can see, Jordie and Dan have some huge plans for Buffy and the Gang – starting with some pretty major introductions of characters like Anya and…well, I won’t spoil that one quite yet. But let’s just say by issue #4, it’ll be clear that this is a love letter to the Buffy we all adore and will go in directions that no one ever expected.”

You can see Mora’s original character designs for the new series here.

Keep reading to get your first look a Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1


Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 goes on sale January 9, 2019 with a main cover by Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, variant covers by Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Royal Dunlap (Spitball), Becca Carey (Bitch Planet), and Jen Bartel (Blackbird), two special interactive variant covers from Miguel Mercado (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) that invite fans to chose #TeamSlayer or #TeamVamp, and two rare variant covers from Kaiti Infante featuring Willow and Vampire Willow.

EXCLUSIVE: Buffy's Robin Wood Revamp is the Comic's Biggest Change Yet

Robin Wood is coming to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot comic, but this is a very different take on the character.

https://www.cbr.com/buffy-vampire-slayer-robin-wood-character-design/


Sounds like a complete re-imaging of Robin Wood and a potential love interest for Buffy.

Spoiler free thoughts on BTVS #1: It's really good. It sets up some interesting mysteries that have a solid mix of familiar elements and new ones that make it work. It's new reader friendly and has everything you could want out of a reboot. Highly recommended! FOC is 12/31

Is anyone here going to follow Boom comics?

What about the new tv show promised? Any further news?

Are you waiting for the spoiler alert for Angel’s appearance? Do you think Spike as a Buffy side kick, soulless and all, is a little more tolerable because of his “true love” story REMAINING with Dru? AND HE REMAINS A VAMPIRE.

Or how about “eunuch’ Angel himself ends up, as a “male slayer” and thus, must remain a vampire, if this Buffy wants a different life for herself? (Also, recall that human/ god type of hybrid idea with Angel in the last comics, and as Joss’s “explanation” for all things Angel, meaning Buffy is just too puny for him. (Jaysus, this comic blockhead was mostly descriptions of “angel dust.”

Anyway, this hybrid idea also could funnel with “Buffy scale” types of evil—and comic’s idea of Angelus’ showing up instead of Angel, as an intro story line?

Does ANYONE here whatsoever hold out ANY HOPE for a real B/A story that just doesn’t end yet another wimpering, inexplicable, WTF, especially since Joss has shown his “true colors” regarding B/A?

It’s a new year and I am seriously having to cut expenses, so I have to know someone out there is a little intrepid for MORE and I do mean REAL B/A than “some lotta plotta” going down abuse alley as the plotty point, with ONLY Xander “getting it all.”

Does anyone think Boom will simply avoid the whole thing by sticking with Buffy as a separate book from Angel/Faith? I mean, Faith wants redemption, so Angel is the natural and the “epic” (quote, sincerely) romance with ANYONE will simply be avoided?

All I see is Spike land and B/A people are supposed to have just moved on from all belief and promise?

I keep thinking to have a new year (maybe not happy) I have to just be a new person. I just never thought I would be asked to accept such pathetic rationale in place of seeing what you believe is seeing. Breaker, breaker? Come on back….

HAPPY new year or new you, as you will!

And yes, thank you fic writers. Some of you understand you are looking at true, transcendent beauty (and insist on it).
Hugs

I'm going to check out the first issue of the new comic.If I think it's decent then I'm going to probably follow atleast the first arc.

There's been no new news on the new tv show so far.

Thanks, comic! Hope your new year going well and you feel refreshed!

I am wondering how they will position Buffy nowadays when so many of these kinds of shows are on air, and probably thanks to BTVS.

I admit I am looking to Angel's appearance and his place in this, as Spike as side kick references Xander-Spike out of the gate. Vamp Willow was quite ignored, so I think that is interesting, if it is a TIME use of the obvious, "multiple dimensions" considering the hell mouth is an easy and obvious door/gate/portal.

Any news re Angel/Faith book? Does Boom own that license, too? If that is a go, then I know what BTVS refresh can and cannot be. And JKMN with Spike/Angel "squabbling sidekicks." Or worse, they get along.

HUGS!

No news on Angel/Faith.

I believe BOOM! has the rights to the entire Buffyverse except maybe Fray.Joss himself said in one of the season 12 interviews he wasn't sure about Fray which is why he wanted to deal with the Fray future before Dark Horse lost the rights to Buffy.

I think the only Buffy comic for right now is BTVS.Than later down the line they may add titles.

I think Angel will show uo in the Buffy comic but not right away.They may be saving him for a surprise intro in the first arc or later in a future arc.

I think if Faith is introduced,it won't be right away.Might nto even be in the first year of the new book.
