The five-issue series from writers Jordie Bellaire (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) & Jeremy Lambert (Doom Patrol) and artist Eleonora Carlini (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers) brings Buffy and Angel face-to-face in the world-ending event hundreds of years in the making—the opening of the gates to the Hellmouth!
Buffy and her Scooby Gang will have to muster all their strength as they deal with an open Hellmouth that threatens the lives of everyone they love in Sunnydale. Meanwhile, Angel, the vampire cursed with a soul, arrives in town to find his redemption by doing whatever it takes to close the Hellmouth…and no human, demon or Slayer will stand in his way.
“The Hellmouth is finally open and the wheels are coming off! I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this event with Jeremy Lambert, one of my closest friends in the universe, and Eleonora Carlini, whose art is just brilliant.”said writer Jordie Bellaire. “We’ve got a lot planned for readers!”
“Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite TV show of all time,” said writer Jeremy Lambert. “So when I heard Jordie’s pitch for this…well, first I had to lie down for a bit, but then I started jumping around like an idiot. I’m so excited to share what’s in store! Exploring the wealth of love and friendship in this series, the ties that bind the Scooby Gang, and pushing each and every one of them to the brink inHELLMOUTH is going to be terrifying–and an absolute joy. See you in Sunnydale… or what’s left of it?”
