We don’t really know why Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics have left Dark Horse. They’ve had a 20 year relationship with the publisher and it’s suddenly coming to an end, though Buffy has been going strong. So strong, in fact, that creator Joss Whedon recently returned to write some comics.

At the time of the announcement we didn’t know if Buffy would find another home, but we finally have word that it’s going to be picked up by Boom! Studios. They’ve got a lot of IP with Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, Fraggle Rock, and more; so this seems like a good fit where The Scoobies will be welcomed with open arms.

“I remember watching the premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over twenty years ago, and the feeling of empowerment that came with seeing a girl get to kick ass and have flaws at the same time, and to not apologize for who she was. It’s an honor to oversee that world for a new generation and to bring them that same feeling of knowing your greatest power comes from being true to who you are,” BOOM! Studios Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer tells IGN. “Buffy is about love at its core, love for your friends and yourself. The characters are allowed to be equal parts human and monster, and seeing them struggle to balance those parts of themselves, the same parts we all struggle with, is why it still resonates with audiences of all ages and backgrounds today.”

The poster below is the first official announcement of the move and it already looks like it’s capturing the right tone. Can’t wait to find out what creative team gets put on the comic(s)!
