Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a TV series that changed the paradigms of television narration forever, thanks to Joss Whedon who has staged many "firsts". It has revolutionized the formula of the teen drama, introducing many themes that were not present on TV until then and has created a female icon that is still highly sought after today.



In this context, the reboot a comics could be an opportunity to bring new fans closer to a series that is still 20 years old, which many may not have seen at the time and perhaps would like to recover on Prime Video. In fact, the new SaldaPress books do a very impressive job from a narrative point of view, that is to bring Buffy and all the other characters into the current era, therefore that of smartphones and social networks. Eleonora Carlini's reaction to the comic reboot is curious, but understandable: "I didn't take it very well, I have to be honest. I am very fond of the series and I was not very convinced at the beginning ".



Deepening the characteristics of the story we discover that the characters of the comic are very faithful to the original characterizations, the authors have not distorted their psychology and fans will really have the feeling of finding Xander, Willow, Giles, Angel and Spike many years later where they left them.

With the first two issues of the reboot already out, "The School is a Hell" (buy it here) and "Soul and Heart" (buy it here), the Buffy / Angel further expands this second life of Joss Whedon's Buffyverse. From which then the comic series on Angel will follow, which SaldaPress will publish between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, where we will find a more cynical Angel and temperamentally similar to the homonymous TV spin-off that accompanied Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the 90s.
