EXCL: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Legacy Edition to Collect Out-of-Print Stories

In April 2020, BOOM! Studios will begin collecting rare and out-of-print Buffy stories in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Legacy Edition.

by Jon Arvedon – on Jul 31, 2019

BOOM! Studios has announced a new graphic novel program to collect rare, out-of-print Buffy the Vampire Slayer stories, the aptly titled Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Legacy Edition.

"Buffy is such a beloved television series and it’s managed to build an amazing legacy of game-changing stories in comic book format over the years," BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement. "We’re excited to collect all those stories in a deluxe set of softcover editions for fans who are looking to enjoy all that the Buffyverse has to offer—including essential stories about favorite characters they might have missed when they were first released."



Beginning in April 2020 with Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Legacy Edition Book One, BOOM! Studios will collect every issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer from previous publishers in chronological order, including hard-to-find and out-of-print stories from such writers as Andi Watson, Jen Van Meter, Christopher Golden and Dan Brereton.

Here is the official synopsis from BOOM! Studios:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: LEGACY EDITION BOOK ONE allows fans to discover untold stories of the Scooby Gang and their fight against evil in Sunnydale—all while trying not to fail their exams! As Buffy faces the consequences of saving the world—by killing the man she loved—the rest of the team faces their own challenges, such as Angel returning to life without a soul and Willow helping Oz confront the beast inside of him, all while Xander and Cordelia kiss, make up, kiss, make up...you probably get the picture.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Legacy Edition Book One goes on sale April 8, 2020 from BOOM! Studios.

http://www.buffyforums.net/forums/showthread.php?21781-BOOM!-Angel-4









After saving the mysterious and troubled Fred from the demon stalking her in Sunnydale, Angel gets sucked into a twisted realm where he is tortured by visions of past atrocities and a mysterious figure with a stake aimed straight for his heart! In order to escape an eternity under the demon’s power, Angel must battle its insidious illusions and defeat his own fears. But little does he know, a much greater evil is on the horizon and he’ll need every resource and ally he can find to help him save the world, starting with Fred, who’s somehow connected to the dark forces surrounding Angel, and the first appearance of a familiar face from the streets of Los Angeles—vampire hunter Charles Gunn—but is he here to help the vampire with a soul or dust him once and for all?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #7

Written by Jordie Bellaire
Art by David López, Sas Milledge and Raúl Angulo
Lettered by Ed Dukeshire
Published by Boom Studios
Review by Matthew Sibley
‘Rama Rating: 9 out of 10

The idea of the soul has always been one of the most vital essences in Buffy. It’s what grants someone their conscience — a sense of right and wrong — and so it’s easy to see the change in someone before and after getting vamped as all of those notions have been erased from the person; just look at the differences between the ways that Angel and Angelus acted. If a soul is a source of humanity, then this series has been blessed with one from its launch, as rather than being a by-the-numbers reboot, Jordie Bellaire and the artists involved have crafted a radically different version of Sunnydale where the bigger plot departures from the source material have been properly considered.

Over the course of the first arc, this led to Xander getting vamped, a big change to one of the core Scoobies. This second arc has delved more into the metaphysical properties of souls as the rest of the gang have tried to bring him back from the darkness, leading to Willow splitting her soul in order to help restore Xander’s. Buffy #7 takes a deep dive into the emotional, mental and psychological implications of her choice, to the point where her giving up part of her essence seems to uncouple the book’s layouts from traditional panelling and orientation on the page.

This is a narrative decision heightened by a change in the art during the issue, as David López and Raúl Angulo handle the bookends of the issue, the opening comprised of a nine-panel grid as life goes on all around Willow while she just looks ahead with a thousand-yard stare. López isn’t focusing primarily on likeness, instead crafting a journey through these panels, shifting the area of importance from one to the next, making use of both foreground and background. In the first panel, Willow sitting near the front of class, then Rose is hanging on her shoulder in the next, and in the third, Buffy is fighting a vamp in front of her.

Jordie Bellaire’s script makes use of a time-skip between the ending of the last issue and now – opting not to follow up on the cliffhanger on Robin’s intentions just yet– and this first part of the story makes it clear that Willow’s been struggling in the wake of her choice, to the point where even sleeping is tricky. When she finally nods off, López’s panels drift away into the negative space of the page and she wakes up in a warped world, depicted by Sas Milledge. Panels overlap with one another. Their canted angles cause Willow’s bedroom to sway and their jagged borders cut into one another, as if it’s an attempt to make the world feel whole again. It’s a fractured world for a fractured soul.

Bellaire’s rhythms in this issue are a break from the way that the series has operated for the previous six — it has a more dream-like, spiritual progression and is much more akin to her work with Vanesa Del Rey over in Redlands. While in the dream, scenes give way from one to the next rather than directly cutting between them, and Willow’s subconsciousness’ depiction of other characters just appear and fade without warning. She’s at the mercy of where her mind wants to take her. While this involves elements that fans of the show will recognize such as Dark Willow, Bellaire’s not just going over old ground. Rather than remixing, she’s revamping and coupled with the choices she’s made already, it manages to feel fresh – even when it’s a technique that only possible due to assuming a reader’s familiarity with the source material.

Milledge’s impeccable work in the sequence takes center stage, and deserves the spotlight put upon it by the issue’s structure. Her handling of perspective threads a tricky needle considering that the art needs to feel “off” to indicate this isn’t the typical world, but not so much that the panel-to-panel storytelling becomes incoherent. The coloring at the start makes use of muted palettes, to the point where even Willow’s hair is more than a few shades darker, and a heavier use of black. That’s not just in the depiction of Dark Willow, but the negative space that comes about when the panels don’t neatly slot together. At some points in the storytelling, these two elements come together in close-up shots where the darkness is an extension of her, and vice versa.

The nightmare only gets more intense as it goes on, with the reds and oranges coming back in full force as Willow fights harder for control. As much as this issue depicts a subjective experience for her, that journey is one that serves to deepen an understanding of this new status quo. Compared to the show, it’s moving through big events dramatically quicker (largely due to how long an issue lasts compared to a 42-minute episode of a 22-episode season) and is more directly serialized, but it’s the emphasis on character which shows just how alive the series is at its core.
