As the exciting crossover event continues, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, the vampire without a soul, find themselves at a breaking point in Hellmouth #3 (BOOM! Studios). From the mind of Joss Whedon, the Hellmouth has been opened and the Hellmother has unleashed her bloodthirsty children.
Angel and Buffy are on a mission to find the Mistress and close the Hellmouth – but will they turn on one another first? And is Drusilla the true evil behind the Hellmouth, or if there is another, even more powerful, that they should be worried about?
Here are 5 reasons why you should read Hellmouth #3:
5) What Happened Before!
After recruiting Charles Gunn, Angel had to leave to Los Angeles on an urgent matter. Buffy, along with her friends, are trying to be normal teens during the school dance. When the ground suddenly opens up, the gates of Hell have been unlocked. Sunnydale has to live in a world without Buffy as the slayer has been swallowed into Hellmouth.
4) The Writing!
Writers Jordie Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert explore the rift that’s brewing Angel and Buffy. From Buffy’s perspective, she is trapped in a hellish landscape with a stranger, who happened to murder slayers in a previous life. Letter Ed Dukeshire heightens the distrust between them, especially when Drusilla starts messing Buffy’s head.
3) The Artwork!
Artist Elenora Carlini illustrates the monster that Angel has been hiding from Buffy. In a brutal fight against demons, Angel flashes his fangs and his face tightens, just like on the TV show. In a wide shot, Angel is standing top of dead piles, holding out his clawed hands.
2) The Colors!
Colorist Cris Peter has a different color palette for each level of the Hellmouth. When Buffy and Angel are together, the tones are a mixture of pink and blue. The green tones pop out when Angel meets The Oracle, who looks like a baby demon.
1) For The Fans!
Hellmouth #3 features the breakup between Angel and Buffy. Whedonverse fans are going to love these two sharing the spotlight again.
Hellmouth #3 arrives in stores on December 11th, 2019.
