Buffy Gets A Birthday Present From Dark Horse

Thursday afternoon Dark Horse and 20th Century Fox wished Buffy Summers a happy birthday when they announced a third volume of “Buffy: The High School Years.”

In Parental Parasite, Buffy struggles to deal with her mother Joyce’s sudden interest in spending quality time with her. Balancing this new development with her schoolwork, her friends, and her regular vampire-slaying duties proves to be a challenge. However, when Joyce becomes hypnotized by a childlike demon that craves motherly care, Buffy experiences a new kind of sibling rivalry—except in Buffy’s case, her “sibling” is actually a monster!

Joss Whedon is the executive producer of the series, written by Kel McDonald (Misfits of Avalon), with art by Yishan Li (Buffy: The High School Years—Freaks and Geeks).

Set in Season 1 of the hit show, Buffy: The High School Years—Parental Parasite goes on sale June 28, 2017.

Buffy: The High School Years—Freaks and Geeks was released in June of 2016, with the follow-up Buffy: The High School Years—Glutton for Punishment released later that year in November.

How will you celebrate Buffy’s birthday? Comment below.
