The All-New Scooby Gang VS. The Hellmouth in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #9

BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer #9 from Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire and acclaimed artist David López, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, reimagining the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon. The Slayer goes missing just as an evil force arises from the Hellmouth and threatens to take over all of Sunnydale, available in stores November 6, 2019.

The events of the historic Buffy and Angel event, “Hellmouth,” have left the town of Sunnydale without its Slayer. And since Buffy’s missing in action, it’s up to the All-New Scooby Gang of Cordelia, Robin, Willow and Xander to save everyone in town. There’s just one problem—the Hellmouth is spreading evil throughout the city, putting everyone under its thrall. As the inhabitants of Sunnydale turn on one another, will the Scooby Gang be enough to save the town from utter chaos and destruction?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #9 features cover art by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, and acclaimed artists Kevin Wada, Ryan Inzana, and Cara McGee, as well as a connecting variant cover by artist Goñi Montes that connects to Hellmouth #2 and Angel #6.

Hellmouth #1 has Sold Out of its Second Printing Before Release and is Getting a Third

BOOM! Studios has announced that Hellmouth #1, the highly anticipated premiere issue kicking off an all-new Buffy and Angel event series from writers Jordie Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert and artist Eleonora Carlini, has sold out of its second printing at the distributor level before its on-sale date of October 9, 2019.

To meet the demand, BOOM! Studios is fast-tracking the release of Hellmouth #1 Third Printing Variant, so it can arrive in comic shops on November 6, 2019. Due to this printing being fast-tracked and in high demand, quantities are limited and orders may be allocated. The third printing will feature an all-new cover by series artist Eleonora Carlini.  

From beneath you, it devours…Buffy and the Scooby Gang will have to overcome recent fractures and learn to trust each other again as they race to close the Hellmouth before Evil can be unleashed on, first, Sunnydale, and then, the world. Meanwhile, Angel, the vampire cursed with a soul, arrives in town to seek his redemption by doing whatever it takes to destroy the path to Hell…and no human, demon, or Slayer will stand in his way.

THE FIRST EVENT OF THE ALL-NEW BUFFY UNIVERSE STARTS HERE! 

Buffy Summers, the Slayer, has one job—keep the forces of hell from coming to Earth through, uh, Hellmouth. Here’s the bad news—she might have failed.

The Mistress Drusilla and her ally, Spike, have found a weapon to open the Hellmouth and unleash unspeakable evil across the town and the world. 

With time running out, Buffy must team up with a new ally that she doesn’t fully trust—the vampire vigilante known as Angel! Can these two find a way to work together before the Hellmouth opens – or will they decide they might be each other’s greatest enemy?

From Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire, rising star Jeremy Lambert (Doom Patrol), and Eleonora Carlini (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers) comes the first massive event of the Buffyverse—one that threatens to shake the entire fabric of reality. This is an absolute must-read from the mind of creator Joss Whedon!

Review: Doctor Mirage #2

Doctor Mirage #2

Death was no obstacle for Doctor Mirage, who could speak to the departed. But what happens if she’s one of the deceased? In Doctor Mirage #2, her new ally, Grace, claims to be in the same dead boat. Can you really trust someone so young and inexperienced?

How did Doctor Mirage end up in this spot? Find out here!

Sometimes it’s the subtle things about a comic that make your jaw drop. Sometimes it’s the most visibly obvious things like Jordie Bellaire‘s trippy yet utterly appropriate coloring work that lays upon Nick Robles art like a Picasso painting. This comic is a visual mindfuck from beginning to end, and I absolutely love every minute of it. Or panel, I suppose. It feels like what life would have been like in the sixties as the Beatles reached their most hallucinogenic phase. I bloody love it.

Mags Vissaggio‘s story is strangely grounded despite the supernatural core and the incredibly exciting visuals, but it’s a balance that’s needed. Too often you read things trying to be edgy, experimental and all of that. But, they don’t quite cut the mustard. Doctor Mirage #1 cuts with ease because the artistic vision is a fully complete one. Where the art is off the walls in a fantastic way, the story remains very easy to follow. I’d love to know if the imagery in the comic was what Vissaggio pictured when putting pen to paper.

The recap explaining how Doctor Mirage ended up in the afterlife tugs a little at the heartstrings. It’s reinforced by Robles’ art in a gut wrenching panel as the explanation comes to its close. Vissaggio continues to employ the director-like framing for the narration. With the effect being employed to certain parts of the story, it remains an unequivocal success for me. Both as a harsh reality check, a throwback to the character’s television show, and to highlight the scenes in which the writer uses the technique.

Doctor Mirage #1 was a wonderful experience. Doctor Mirage #2 is every bit as wonderful, and doubles down on the direction of the miniseries. I already want Vissaggio to write more Doctor Mirage, and this series isn’t over yet.

Quite possibly one of the most exciting things on the shelves today – I urge you to check this out.
