Willow is #TeamSlayer and #TeamVamp on Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 Covers

BOOM! Studios has revealed new #TeamSlayer and #TeamVamp variant covers by illustrator Kaiti Infante, featuring beloved character Willow Rosenberg, for the highly anticipated Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1. The series debuts in comic shops on January 23, 2019.

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.

Now every reader must choose a side and join the fight between Good and Evil – will you stand with the Chosen One (#TeamSlayer) or will you side with the Vampires (#TeamVamp)? You can show your true allegiance in two special variant covers from illustrator Kaiti Infante. One cover depicts fan favorite Willow Rosenberg as Buffy’s best friend and stalwart Scooby. The other spotlights a terrifying possible version of her: the evil and remorseless Vampire Willow. 

You can also track down two special interactive variant covers from acclaimed artist Miguel Mercado that can be held up to your face to reveal your inner Slayer or inner Demon!

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