Boom! Studios unveiled a variant cover for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 today, featuring brooding vamp with a soul Angel. The cover for this pivotal issue is the work of fan favorite artist Kevin Wada (She-Hulk) and will be available in stores on June 5.
The hot new series and the much anticipated issue #5 will set Buffy on a heart-wrenching mission to save her friend. This current incarnation of Joss Whedon’s pop culture hit launches a new story arc as the Scooby Gang deals with the devastating consequences of Xander becoming a vampire, but what if there is a way to get him back?
Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) is at the helm along with acclaimed artist David López (Captain Marvel). Whedon serves as story consultant for the series’ reimagining.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5 will be available in stores on June 5. Cover art by Mondo illustrator Marc Aspinall, and artists Morgan Beem (The Family Trade), Becca Carey (Bitch Planet), and Yasmine Putri (Nightwing) along with the Wada variant will also be available digitally on comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM!
