We already knew that the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel comics would be crossing over this September beginning with Angel #5. Now BOOM! Studios has shared further details of the Buffyverse event with its own spin-off series, Hellmouth. The five-issue series, written by Jordie Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert and illustrated by Eleonora Carlini kicks off in October. It brings Buffy and Angel face-to-face as the gates to the Hellmouth open.

Buffy and her Scooby Gang will have to muster all their strength as they deal with an open Hellmouth that threatens the lives of everyone they love in Sunnydale. Meanwhile, Angel, the vampire cursed with a soul, arrives in town to find his redemption by doing whatever it takes to close the Hellmouth...and no human, demon or Slayer will stand in his way.

“The Hellmouth is finally open and the wheels are coming off! I couldn't be more thrilled to share this event with Jeremy Lambert, one of my closest friends in the universe, and Eleonora Carlini, whose art is just brilliant."said writer Jordie Bellaire. “We've got a lot planned for readers!”

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite TV show of all time,” said writer Jeremy Lambert. “So when I heard Jordie's pitch for this...well, first I had to lie down for a bit, but then I started jumping around like an idiot. I'm so excited to share what's in store! Exploring the wealth of love and friendship in this series, the ties that bind the Scooby Gang, and pushing each and every one of them to the brink in Hellmouth is going to be terrifying--and an absolute joy. See you in Sunnydale... or what's left of it?”

“Buffy will always hold a piece of my heart,” said artist Eleonora Carlini. “I remember when I used to go to my grandmother's house after school and have lunch in front of the TV because I didn't want to miss a single note of the opening theme! This memory makes me smile every time. And now, so many years later, it’s an absolute thrill to be a part of this, working on Hellmouth.”

Hellmouth #1 will feature a main cover by Jenny Frison, a variant cover by Kyle Lambert, and a special variant cover by Kelly & Nichole Matthews that connects Angel #5 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer #8.

“Buffy and Angel’s paths were always headed for a head-on collision, and Hellmouth is where they finally meet face-to-face for the first time, although it’s not going to go necessarily how you might think,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Buffy’s got no reason to trust a vampire, even one with a soul, and she might have cost Angel the only chance he’d ever get to become a human again, so there’s bad blood between the two, meaning it’ll be twice as difficult to save the world from the Hellmouth as Buffy and Angel butt heads!”

Hellmouth #1 is set for release on October 9th, 2019.
