It may be the hottest comic on the shelves today.
And for a book that was never supposed to be the most talked about comic in America, Buffy the Vampire Slayings is certainly a runaway success.
That success is due in large part to a new hardcover edition that’s selling for as much as $120 in bookstores and online, with a retail price of $129.99, a hefty price tag for a new comic book.
It’s a feat that the book’s creators and writer, Brian K. Vaughan and David Goyer, are well aware of.
“I was thrilled to see how much the audience was enjoying it, and I thought, well, that’s what we should do,” said Vaughan, who is writing the next installment of the book with co-writer David Gollancz.
It’s a goal Vaughan and Gollacz have been working on for years, and the book was finally done last year with the release of Buffy’s second season.
“We were actually on a deadline,” said Gollencz.
“But then we realized that it was just going to take us months.”
The first issue of Buffy the Slayer #1 was released last October, and it sold over 20 million copies.
That’s the kind of success the series has enjoyed, which is one reason the creators have created a new edition that looks much different than the one that came out in 2017.
“It’s definitely different,” said Vaughn, who’s worked with comic book artists like Mike Del Mundo and Andy Kubert before.
“I think there’s a certain amount of familiarity with that world and the world of the Buffy series, and we wanted to bring that familiarity to this new edition.”
The new hardcovers are going to be available in book stores and online for $129 and $129 respectively, which Vaughan and co-creator David Goy are calling the “Buffy Hardcover”.
They’ll be available for pre-order on March 15, and they’ll be released in hardcover and digital formats on April 1.
The cover of the new hardback edition.
But while the covers look different, they are almost exactly the same.
The only difference is the name.
Buffy’s first hardcover is a little bit different, as well.
The name is still “Busta” and it’s also a little darker than the new edition.
The new hardbacks will have a slightly different font than the 2017 hardcover.
They will also feature a “b&p” on the back cover and a new font for the title page.
And of course, there’s the cover itself.
The cover will be black with a black background and the words “BUSTA” and “PATRIOTS” in large white letters.
The new edition will also have a special back cover, which will feature a different typeface and a different font.
The book will also include a new logo, a new design for the backcover, a white cover, and a black title page and cover.
The book is available on Amazon, where the price is currently listed at $99.99.
For $129, you get both hardcoated editions, a physical copy of the series, aswell as a new bookplate, an eBook, a free digital copy of Buffy, a poster, a hardback graphic novel, and two bonus issues.
They also include all the original covers, as long as they’re black and white.
The first hardback hardcover comes out in April and will retail for $125, the second one in September.
And of course you’ll have to wait until the new season starts to see the final cover.
The comic series has been on the shelf since 2006, but fans are only getting a glimpse of the final product now.
For the first time in years, there will be no new Buffy books, and only a limited number of physical copies.
The limited edition will be available only at select retailers and online.
But if you’re not interested in the limited edition, the first hardbacks are still on sale for $120 and $119 respectively.
