Your First Look at Fifty Year Old Buffy in BUFFY THE LAST VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 – Discover the Fate of the Iconic Slayer in a Shocking New Post-Apocalyptic Future in December 2021

BOOM! Studios, in collaboration with 20th Television, revealed a first look at BUFFY THE LAST VAMPIRE SLAYER #1, the first issue in a brand new four-issue comic book series out December 2021. From acclaimed writer Casey Gilly (Femme Magnifique, Star Wars Adventures) and artist Joe Jaro (Firefly) comes a dystopian tale of the iconic Slayer, Buffy Summers like you’ve never seen her before.

Can a lone Slayer save what’s left of humanity? Buffy Summers is the last Slayer. Now in her 50s, she wages a one-woman fight against the forces of darkness, who prey on humanity in the daylight unimpeded thanks to a magical catastrophe that has nearly blotted out the sun. The same disaster robbed Buffy of her friends and ended the Slayer-line, forcing her into an endless guerilla war. That is, until she stumbles across something she hasn’t seen in a long time – hope, in the form of a prophecy and the young girl who carries it…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered on March 10th, 1997. The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003. Chosen to battle vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides and teaches her as she surrounds herself with a circle of friends called the Scooby Gang. 

BUFFY THE LAST VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 features main cover art by acclaimed illustrator Ario Anindito (Star Wars: The High Republic) and variant cover art by fan-favorite artists Rod Reis (New Mutants), Dani Pendergast (Magic),  Jakub Rebelka (JudasOrigins), Claire Roe (Bury the Lede), and Giuseppe Camuncoli (Undiscovered Country).
