The GeeksverseCelebrate Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s 30th Birthday!

Celebrate Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s 30th Birthday!
Published on Monday, January 3, 2011 by

Careful readers may have noticed that the release date of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #40 has been moved to January 19, 2011 . The change in date is no accident. The final issue of the much-talked-about series will hit shelves on the birthday of Buffy Summers. In order to celebrate both the end of Season 8 and the birthday of the beloved character, Dark Horse is proud to announce six Buffy Birthday Parties across the country!

Dark Horse editor Scott Allie had this to say about the event : “It’s been a long , strange ride to the end of Buffy’s eighth season, and when we realized that her thirtieth birthday fell on a Wednesday, the day new comics go on sale, we realized we had to move our release date to coincide. We’re excited to celebrate this landmark occasion and hope we can gather good crowds of Buffy readers and fans together to wish her well as she heads off for Season 9, a little bit older, her head hung low . . . . ”

It’s hard to believe the vampire slayer is another year older, but time and tide wait for no man, woman, or demon. If, while reading this, you notice your local comic shop is not listed as hosting a party, have the shop’s owner contact Dark Horse , and we’ll provide them with activity sheets to host their own event.

The following locations will have games, prizes, giveaways , and more for their Buffy Birthday Party! Details vary by location.
