BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER To Introduce 'Most Important New Character in 20+ Years' This APRIL

By Chris Arrant, Editor
January 22, 2020

https://img.purch.com/o/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8yNzMvODQ5L2kwMi9CdWZmeV9FdmVyeUdlbmVyYXRpb25fMDAxX1ZhcmlhbnRfUFJPTU8uanBn

"The most important new character in over 20 years" for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise is set to be revealed in an April 8 one-shot from BOOM! Studios. The anthology one-shot Buffy: Every Generation #1 will reveal the secret origins of some of the most important Slayers in history, including this new mystery character.

"Just when you think you know everything about the Chosen One, a brand new character shows up to turn the whole universe on its head," BOOM! Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in the announcement.

Schaefer and BOOM! wouldn't reveal details on the character (or even their name) at this point, but is framing their introduction as a major moment not just for the BOOM! titles but the entire franchise.

"Buffy’s been through the Hellmouth, fought alongside Angel, been replaced by Kendra, and now has to deal with the backlash in Ring of Fire but all of that is nothing compared to what comes next for the Slayer and everyone else in the Buffyverse," Schaefer continued. "Hold onto your seats because this special will… BLOW. YOUR. MIND!"

M.F.K.'s Nilah Magruder will write the lead story, with additional work by Morgan Beem, Lauren Garcia, Caitlin Yarsky, Lauren Knight, and Alex Guimarães.

Look for more on Buffy: Every Generation #1 in the coming months here at Newsarama.

It’s really hard to tell—considering all of these people are just not “old Buffy” by any stretch—Xander a vampire and still “human”-hand wave, hand wave; definitively the PTB are effete. Isn’t it a little soon to go all existential manifesto?
Anya a watcher, Robin a full done watcher, Buffy’s uniqueness just isn’t there for me. This is “Party of Five.”

Angel is the most recognizable, but really, so not; he covered himself even if details were of the upscale variety —Spike is his entertainment committee? I mostly don’t feel ANY romance whatsoever—even though they sure rush through “we are family” cuz I sez so. Issues of trust are all “pink and Pollyanna.”


I mean, seriously, if you look like a lamprey or wolf eel you are evil. That’s the depth here. Souls or conscience or even “conciousness” are barely even “salt” on this stuff. I can’t “feel” anything—and I LAUGHED when Giles (RIPPER???) burst into tears over Xander. That scene with Giles and Buffy, after going after Angelus, was one borne of a REAL emotional path, driven beyond exhaustion, reason, loss, betrayal, and profound love. I can’t help feel like these people’s slumber parties are for toddlers, yet they ‘magically’ deal with nastiness I STILL couldn’t handle. Ha!

Willow does not look like high school AT ALL—Jaysus, even Cordelia didn’t look THIS mature and “self-assured;” and I’m thinking of Dawn wanting to be a slayer than “the Wish” actually, but it all has to not work in order for Willow to figure out she is the deux ex machina of magic in this turkey pot pie.



I’m sorry, comic, but I really am ‘too old’ for this, even if the original Buffy still “blows me away” in the serious power SMG put into that part to keep the most abiding parts of herself as the conciousness she really had to learn to trust—and THEN ‘save the world.’ I mean if season six did anything, it was how intractable her world really was and her belief of her place in it was just as “cursed.” Why? BECAUSE ANGEL”S IS. He is a vampire STUCK in his own condition and NO ONE bothers with “the curse” that is actually (in real terms, one’s OWN SELF BELIEFS), but in ‘magical’ terms, must answer the curse as written, for its answer MUST be there in order to be a CURSE at all. THAT is rule one in even casting one that ‘works.’

I mean, SMG’s Buffy’s intuition and insistence on the BIG difference between innocence and ignorance—which is the whole point of B/A, shown in the simple act of a “second chance” is to comprehend her power and how to balance notions of of justice in rage versus mercy, or in self victimization versus “giving power over you to what hurts you.”

These were all so clearly explosed, in dealing with one’s own equilibrium, but in how to be in the world and how you also shape “how the world works”—especially with the topic of “death/change.’
I think Angel and Buffy are powerful because true love provides the greatest, most under understood power of ‘connectedness” of all things than most religious dogmas expose in “good and evil”—simply because all living must die for life to be immortal—and death/change is the story of “being human,” or is the road to the lesson of ever becoming themselves.

I’m very slow to learn lessons and this comic, unfortunately, “doesn’t make sense” to put in time and expense over it much longer. Sorry—I do appreciate that you ‘endeavor to preserve!”
