They’ve only been making Buffyverse comics for a year, but explosive publisher BOOM! Studios already has a full-fledged comic book crossover on their hands! Kicking off in September’s Angel #5 is “The Road to Hellmouth,” a crossover event between Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. A press release reveals the details on this event that will rock the world of Buffy and Angel to its very foundations, leaving nothing the same again!
BOOM! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, announced today that ANGEL #5 will be the official prelude to Hellmouth, the historic Buffy & Angel comic book event.
The road to Hellmouth begins in September 2019 from acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (American Carnage, Batman & The Outsiders) and artist Gleb Melnikov, as ANGEL #5 reveals that Angel now knows his true mission—to make sure the Hellmouth stays sealed! He’ll stop anyone who gets in his way, be it friend or foe, vampire…or Slayer.
BOOM! Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer adds:
Everything in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel has been leading to Hellmouth, the first major comic book event featuring Buffy and Angel. But ANGEL #5 is where the pieces all start coming together. We’re excited for fans to see just how far we’ll go in this reimagining of two huge pop culture icons—because when Buffy and Angel finally meet, it’s not going to go the way you expect!
Who will live? Who will die? How much will all of this cost? And most importantly, will there be variant covers? Of course there will be f***ing variant covers! What do you think this is, amateur hour?
ANGEL #5 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots, Batman: Arkham Knight), along with variant cover by horror illustrator Scott Buoncristiano (Harry Potter: Magical Film Projections, Dead Rabbit) and artist Troy Nixey (Trout, Neil Gaiman’s Only The End Of The World Again).
Angel #5 hits stores in September!
