Discover Hidden Origins and Shocking Reunions in Two All New Stories From The Hit Franchises On May 4, 2019
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 3, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today revealed the final cover and first look at the WELCOME TO THE WHEDONVERSE FCBD SPECIAL, an all-new comic book arriving exclusively in comic shops worldwide on Free Comic Book Day (May 4th, 2019), with brand new stories featuring three of the greatest creations from visionary Joss Whedon (writer/director Marvel’s The Avengers).
This FREE comic, released in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, is the perfect jumping-on point for the “Whedonverse” with all new stories from the worlds of BOOM! Studios’ hit series Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly.
First, dive into the secret origins of Boss Moon, the brand new character who made her first appearance in Greg Pak and Dan McDaid’s Firefly #2. This special origin story reveals how the relentless Unificator was recruited by the Alliance to hunt down Captain Malcolm Reynolds and Zoë Alleyne Washburne, written by Fireflyseries writer Greg Pak (Ronin Island, Mech Cadet Yu) and illustrated by Ethan Young (Ronin Island).
Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, Firefly centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn't have a planet to call home. Mal Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.
In the second exclusive story, it’s the beginning of Buffy vs. Angel as the Slayer makes a surprise visit to Anya’s magical emporium in search of an extremely rare and dangerous item that might be the solution to fixing an impossible problem. But she’s got competition, and fans will have to pick up this special issue to find out what happens when the Slayer, vampires, and the magic of cursed souls all converge on the same place in this hit reimagining of the cult television sensations. Writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands), with artists Dan Mora (Klaus, Once & Future) and Serg Acuña (WWE), continues the bold reimagining of the groundbreaking mythology that changed pop culture forever.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered on the WB Network on March 10th, 1997. The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series, which ran for seven seasons from 1997-2003, stars Sarah Michelle Gellar as “Buffy Summers.” Chosen to battle vampires, demons and other forces of darkness, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides and teaches her as she surrounds herself with a circle of friends called the “Scooby Gang.”
WELCOME TO THE WHEDONVERSE FCBD SPECIAL, featuring a cover by Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.
