David López Joins the Team in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5
BOOM! Studios has announced a new creative team for the brand new story arc starting in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5. The explosive first chapter of the new story arc for the highly acclaimed comic book series will debut in-stores June 5, 2019.
Artist David López joins writer Jordie Bellaire at the start of a brand new story arc after the shocking conclusion of the last issue. The reimagining of Joss Whedon’s groundbreaking series jumps straight into the first chapter of the new story as Buffy and her friends deal with recent shocking events, friends turned foe, and enemies who might be allies, along with all the usual high school drama. Buffy’s world has turned upside down, and it’s only a matter of time before something comes along to tip her straight over into the darkness, but will she recognize the danger when it arrives or will it sneak into her life and sow the seeds of chaos from within?
Welcome back to the Hellmouth, as Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire and acclaimed artist David López, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon from the very beginning.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 features main covers by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, along with covers by artists Kevin Wada, Yasmine Putri, Morgan Beem, Becca Carey, and Kaiti Infante.
