BOOM! Studios Reveals Jen Bartel to Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a new variant cover by superstar artist Jen Bartel to the hotly anticipated Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1, debuting in comic shops on January 9th, 2019 in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

As Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire, Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora, and series creator/story consultant Joss Whedon reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon from the very beginning, readers will meet a Buffy Summers like the one they know – trying to make friends at her new school, get 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.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 also features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with variant covers by superstars Kevin Wada, Royal Dunlap, and Becca Carey.
