September is shaping up to be a huge month in comics. BOOM! Studios has announced that it will be launching a new crossover event taking place in the pages of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel comics.
The event, titled “Hellmouth”, launches with a prelude in Angel #5 due to hit shelves on September 25, 2019.
The story kicks off when the eponymous vampire realises his purpose of coming to Sunday was to keep the demonic Hellmouth sealed, at all costs.
“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,” said BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer in a statement released to the press. “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!”
BOOM! has released a look at the standard and variant covers for the issue which you can check out below:
Here’s the full solicitation for the issue:
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.
September will also see the Buffy and Angel books releasing interconnected covers. The covers include the mystery, third series which will form part of the crossover.
