What’s better than free comic books? Free comic books celebrating 25 years of our favorite vampire slayer!
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series first premiered in 1997, which makes 2022 the show’s 25th anniversary. And Boom! Studios plans to celebrate that anniversary on Free Comic Book Day. So on May 7, head to your local comic shop to pick up 25 Years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The 32-page Comic Book Day special comes from writers Jordi Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert, as well as artists Dan Mora and Marianna Ignazzi. Here’s the official description from Boom! Studios:
What better way to celebrate 25 years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer than with a high school yearbook! This Free Comic Book Day special, in actual yearbook format, is a retrospective of your fan-favorite character moments from the past two decades. Celebrate the Chosen One(s), the Scoobies, and your faves through yearbook photos, vignettes, and plenty of jokes and lighthearted moments from an array of artists and writers. Plus you won’t want to miss a special look at the future of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
25 Years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be available May 7, 2022, exclusively at participating local comic shops. (You can find your local store online.)
