The new series will be a complete reboot of the continuity from the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series. Taking an “Ultimate Marvel” kind of approach, the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic will still feature Buffy and the Scoobies that fans know and love but will update her story for the modern era.
The press release:
“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 the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize. The more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang – Giles, Willow, Xander, Cordelia and more – faces brand new Big Bads, and a threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High, confirming what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.
Long time fans of the HORROR REPORT may recall the early 2000s when we had a section of this website wholely dedicated to BUFFY authored by mysterious writer at the time “Mr. Benson.” whose true identity was never even revealed to us let alone readers..
