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.

CHRISTOPHER HASTINGS (The Unbelievable Gwenpool! Secret Agent Deadpool! Adventure Time! I Am Groot!) and DAVID HAHN (Batman ’66! Bombshells: United!) proudly present a story from a time when there wasn’t internet, but there WERE cyborgs!
It’s the 1970s. Things are going great. Steve Austen (used to be an astronaut, now has robo-parts & a laser eye) heads to Japan to help Secret Agent Niko Abe stop a madman with missiles. Steve figures, no sweat. But then…sweat. How’s Steve going to complete his mission, when his fancy $6,000,000 body starts (DRASTICALLY) depreciating in value!?

Raven has joined Baron Winters’ new Night Force to battle the ancient, mystical assassins known as the Shadow Riders. But she discovers the Riders were created to protect mankind from Arcanes: super-naturally powered individuals who were not always heroes! Can it be true that Raven and the Night Force have been the “bad guys” all along?
Dynamite Entertainment has announced a reimagining of the iconic and bionic 1970s TV sensation, The Six Million Dollar Man. Starting in March 2019, writer Christopher Hastings and artist David Hahn will traverse the globe with Colonel Steve Austin – and hopefully survive the experience!
The time: the 1970s. The place: Japan. Rather than a full team of highly trained soldiers, Japanese secret agent Niko Abe is sent one single man to help her on a mission. Though Steve Austin is not any ordinary man. They must stop a nefarious plan by a madman to exact revenge on the United States for decades-old conflicts.
Things go awry when everyone’s favorite atomic powered agent immediately finds his cybernetically altered body failing him. His $6 million enhancements – $23 million adjusted for inflation in 2018 – are dwindling in value and effectiveness. Any minute now he may be the Six Thousand Dollar Man. He must fight through it though, and against both samurai AND the KGB.
The Six Million Dollar Man #1 will feature colors by Roshan Kurchiyanil and letters by Ariana Maher. As well as covers from Michael Walsh, Yasmine Putri, Francesco Francavilla, and Denis Medri.
Journey back to an era without Internet, but WITH cyborgs!
