Xander is reeling from the affects of his vampire transformation, but with that curse comes visions of a dark future for Sunnydale - and his friends - in a preview of July 3's Buffy the Vampire Slayer #6.
"How far would you go for your best friend? Xander is becoming the very thing the Scoobies fight against every night: a vampire," reads a BOOM! description of the issue. "Buffy is tearing through Sunnydale in search of a mythical cure while trying to stop Mistress Drusilla from opening the Hellmouth, and Willow may have found something that could fix Xander and save the day but comes at an impossibly high price. But magic always comes at a cost—is Willow willing to lay everything on the line and make a sacrifice so final that nothing will ever be the same again?"
