It’s Time For a Road Trip in Your First Look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE LOST SUMMER #1

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE LOST SUMMER #1, the special issue one-Shot! Buffy the Last Vampire Slayer writer Casey Gilly, along with artist Lauren Knight (Golden Rage, Time Before Time), colorist Francesco Segala (Firefly, House of Slaughter) with color assists by Gloria Martinelli, and letterer Ed Dukeshire bring fans a frightfully fun story set in the continuity of the cult classic TV series, available in May 2023.

Spike is determined to keep the last copy of his embarrassing poetry from being discovered, sending Buffy and the gang on a faux-supernatural goose chase to New Orleans to cover his tracks. While at an antiques fair along the way, the group is captivated by The Casquette Girls’ clothes on display. Dawn utters a wish she most likely should’ve kept to herself, and the gang experiences a first hand account of the sisters’ identities…beyond what they could have ever imagined!

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE LOST SUMMER #1 features a standard cover by Mirka Andolfo (Deep Beyond, Sweet Paprika), and variant covers by Veronica Fish (Firefly: Brand New ‘Verse, Blackwood), and Paulina Ganucheau (Wonder Woman, The Amazing World of Gumball).

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: THE LOST SUMMER #1 will be in comic shops on May 5, 2023. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.
