An oversized hardcover collection of BOOM! Studios’ critically acclaimed reimagining of Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with an all new story featuring fan favorite Wesley Wyndam-Pryce.
Go back to the beginning as the critically acclaimed pop culture phenomenon Buffy The Vampire Slayer is reimagined under the guidance of series creator Joss Whedon! This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil...only this time around, her world looks a lot more like the one outside your window. Eisner Award winner Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), Russ Manning Award winner Dan Mora (Go Go Power Rangers, Hexed), and superstar artist David Lopez (Captain Marvel), along with series creator Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers), bring Buffy into a new era with new challenges, new friends, and a few enemies you might already recognize. But the more things change, the more they stay the same as the Gang faces brand-new Big Bads, and the threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High confirms what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell. Collects Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1-12, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chosen Ones #1 and an exclusive new ten page story about everyone’s favorite Watchers, Giles & Wesley.
Bellaire is credited with starting the "Comics are for everybody" initiative to make the comic book community more inclusive and compassionate.
In 2014, Bellaire was nominated for an Eisner award for best cover artist for her collaboration on The Wake with Sean Murphy. In addition, she also received a nomination for Best Coloring award for her work on various titles, which she won.
