There’s no rest for the wicked… and no rest for the Slayer fighting them. Even well into her 50s, Buffy Summers is killing the unkillable and trying to save the world.
In a new comic story from BOOM! Studios, fans will see Buffy as they’ve never seen her before. The dystopian series follows the sole-remaining Slayer on her ongoing quest to save the world.
Here’s the official description of the four-issue series Buffy The Last Vampire Slayer:
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…
