Buffy Summers is not the chosen one in the next buffy the vampire slayer series of universes, titled simply The Vampire Slayer. the Buffy the Vampire Slayer 25th Anniversary Special revealed that the hero of this series is Willow Rosenberg. Buffy supports the Slayer as a super powerless member of her Scooby Gang. Boom Studios recently explored the Buffy Multiverse in their titles. The Vampire Slayer takes place in a universe where Watcher Giles attempted a magic chaos spell to help ease Buffy’s burden, which somehow made Willow the Slayer.

The Vampire Slayer comes from award-winning author Sarah Gailey (eat the rich, magic for liars), artist Michael Shelfer (Domino), colorists Valentina Pinto and Riccardo Giardina, and letterer Ed Dukeshire. The Vampire Slayer #1 features cover art by Goñi Montes (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and a variant cover by artists Francesco Francavilla (night of the ghoul), Bex Glendining (Nubia: the real one), Christian Quarter (The many deaths of Laila Starr), and Mike du Monde (x-men, Thor). Here is the synopsis from Boom Studios:

“After the events of the past few years, battling the forces of evil non-stop, Buffy Summers finds herself succumbing to the burden of wearing the mantle of the Slayer. To aid his Slayer, Rupert Giles risks turning to chaos magic , and with Willow’s help, they attempt a spell to remove the trauma from Buffy’s psyche. But the effects backfire and leave Buffy unable to remember her past or her purpose! With Sunnydale under attack, a new Slayer surprisingly must rise to protect the world, while Buffy’s friends race against the clock to find her true self before it’s too late…”
