An upcoming variant cover for BOOM! Studios' reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer features Seth Green's Daniel "Oz" Osbourne standing alongside Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Willow (Alyson Hannigan) in an homage of the infamous "Graduation Day" episode.
The cover by Eisner Award-nominated illustrator Ryan Inzana (Ichiro) is for February's Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2.
“Every fan of Buffy has their favorite episodes – and ‘Graduation Day’ is always high on that list for good reason. It’s the episode that perfectly crystalizes just what Buffy has to do – and sacrifice – in order to be the hero she wants to be,” Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement. “On this issue’s episode homage cover, Ryan shows what every fan knows – that no matter the odds, Buffy never backs down from fighting for what she believes in most: her friends.”
Issue #2's main cover will be provided by Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, with additional covers by Kevin Wada (She-Hulk), Celia Lowenthal (Over The Garden Wall: Hollow Town), Ryan Inzana (Ichiro) and Audrey Mok (Archie).
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2, by Jordie Bellaire, Dan Mora and Joss Whedon, arrives Wednesday, February 13 from BOOM! Studios.
