Over The Garden Wall's Celia Lowenthal has illustrated a variant cover for February's Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 from BOOM! Studios. This is part of the publisher's recently-announced reimagining of the Buffy franchise in comic books.
“We’re excited to have Celia join us for a variant cover for the second issue of Jordie Bellaire and Dan Mora’s incredible vision for Buffy and the gang, and to bring her unique point of view to the story,” said Jeanine Schaefer, BOOM!'s Executive Editor. “We’re treating each issue of this series like an event – so if you think Spike and Drusilla are the end of our big reveals, just wait till you get to the last page.”
"The reimagining of Joss Whedon's groundbreaking series continues as Drusilla, the self-proclaimed Mistress and her pet, Spike, make their debut with their sights set on Buffy!," reads BOOM!'s description of the episode. "Meanwhile, Giles is determined to teach Buffy about her destiny, responsibility, blah blah...can someone tell him to chill? How bad can it get?"
BOOM!'s Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be written by Jordie Bellaire and rawn by Dan Mora.
Based on the long-running TV series by Joss Whedon, BOOM! Studios' Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2 is scheduled to be available February 13.
