There's a new Buffy The Vampire Slayer in town!

It came as quite a surprise to discover that Boom! Studios has revamped Buffy The Vampire Slayer for a new generation. The new Buffy The Vampire Slayer comic series reimagines the franchise and transports Buffy and the Scoobies into the modern era with all the technological marvels and perils of our everyday lives on top of all the monsters and Big Bads.

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.

But her world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and Russ Manning Award-Winner Dan Mora (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers) 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.
The cover art by artist Kevin Wada is simply amazing! He manages to bring each of the familiar characters to life, making them immediately recognisable but also incorporating a modern twist. I'd buy it for these covers alone.

Based on the preview I took a look at I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the interior art style, but I'm definitely going to keep my eye on this one and most likely pick up the trade when it becomes available. I'm interested to see where they take things. And who can resist more Buffy?
