Buffy The Vampire Slayer may be over, but the series does live on as part of a rebooted comic book series by BOOM! Studios. The comic book is a reimagining of the series featuring the same characters but in a modern day setting.
Fans of the series are in for a treat next week: the return of fan-favorite Angel.
Buffy #4, coming out on April 17th, will introduce the character popularized by David Boreanaz to the new series. In addition, a new spin off series of comics centered around the character will release on the same day.
The official description for Angel #0 reads:
“Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark…including himself. Now, looking for redemption for the atrocities committed by the monster he was when he was first turned at the age of 18, Angel stumbles upon a new demon uprising and a shocking truth: The restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he’s never met…but may now be his greatest enemy.”
The new issue will be released exclusively in print, which BOOM! Studios VP of Marketing Arune Singh wants to use to drive interest:
“We looked at this as a natural story point where we could launch an Angel series from Buffy #4, so let’s create that excitement purely as a comic book store event,”
Any Buffy fans here excited for this news?
