      Yes the blond look is surprising if so.

      Giles and Willow?

    Giles' mom? Since when does Giles have a mom? Living and breathing, I mean?

    Dark eyebrows, full lips, long fingers, and left-handed - this must be Spike or else Boom! must have lost it completely.

      Dorothy, the head of the Watchers Council is Giles's mother.

    Is Giles's mother from the dimension with shrimp or without shrimp? Or another dimension entirely?

    Does Angel have a beard in one of these dimensions?

      Maybe even a beard made of shrimp.

      Dorothy is from the dimension without shrimp I'm pretty sure. She may have kidnapped the Faith from the world with shrimp. It's all very confusing.

    Is the person on the cover Spike from a dimension where he lost his memory and was raised by the Giles family?

      Or Giles could be Spike's father and he trained him as a watcher, but the he got turned into a vampire. Anything is possible in Boom! verse.

        Just think of the stupidest idea possible, and It will be that.

          Buffy the Vampire Slayer Teases the Biggest Bad's Grand Plan

          The multiversal Buffy the Vampire villain Silas has made his first move against the Scoobies and is seeking to make a hero his corrupt ally.

          WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #28 from Boom! Studios, on sale now

          Introduced formally in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #27, Silas has quickly been setting himself up as the ultimate villain of not just the series but perhaps the entire Slayer-Multiverse as a whole. For that plan to work though, he's been seemingly hunting down targets -- and is finally making his move.

          Silas has officially begun his attack against the defenders of Sunnydale in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #28 by Jeremy Lambert, Valentina Pinti, Raul Angulo, and Ed Dukeshire -- and he has his sights set on turning one notable hero into his greatest ally.



          Teased out as the Scoobies of Boom! Studios Buffy the Vampire Slayer series learned more about the multiverse, Silas has increasingly revealed himself to be perhaps the most dangerous villain in the history of the franchise. The Lurkers -- skeletal dogs that hunt multiversal visitors when they're in different realities -- were established as his malicious agents. However, it turns out they are fully extensions of him and his will. Silas is capable of seeing through them and having them act on his behalf. When they consume the memories and minds of those they hunt, this fuels Silas and his power. Traveling across universes, Silas has been consuming more and more beings from various realities -- seemingly with the intent to ultimately wipe out the entire multiverse.

          Anya describes him as a "starving God who gets his kicks through everyone else" while hinting at a former relationship with him, while her ally Morgan describes him as the ultimate Memory Vampire/Universe God. The sheer power of Silas has the Scoobies preparing for full-blown war with him -- while also prompting Ethan Rayne to run back to Wesley and the Watcher's Council to inform them of their plans and the importance of bringing Willow onto their side. Silas clearly has dark intentions for all of existence, threatening more than just the core reality of the comic series. But he may have also found an ally on the primary world of the series: Faith. One of the three currently active Slayers, Faith has been working -- alongside Wesley and Robin Wood -- with the Watcher's Council and Mayor Wilkens.



          But things have been teased to be far more complicated regarding her, with Faith's memories confirmed to be tampered with by the Watchers in an attempt to mold her into a more controllable and ruthless Slayer. It turns out Faith isn't even actually from the core universe of the series. This gives the Watchers more autonomy with her, as she's an unknown with no family or friends actively looking for her. Their experiments might finally come back to haunt them, though.

          Noticing Faith's status as a multiversal visitor like himself, Silas approaches the young woman while she's asleep. Silas offers her the chance to stand by his side and fight alongside him. In exchange, he'll unlock all of her hidden memories -- and allow her to live forever outside of time with him. Surrounded by Lurkers, Faith's final choice isn't made clear. But given the original character's tendency to betray the other Scoobies, it wouldn't be surprising to see her commit such a betrayal to learn more about herself.

              I wonder if that's the idea? With the Angel comic folding I don't think there is a big demand out there for this Buffy

            Boom having an idea? That would be a first....

              Buffy the Vampire Slayer Teases an Epic Multiverse Team-Up

              Buffy Summers and her allies are preparing to fight Silas -- and they might need an army of Slayers if they're going to have any chance of winning.

              BY BRANDON ZACHARY
              PUBLISHED 4 HOURS AGO



              WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Buffy the Vampire Slayer #28 from Boom! Studios, on sale now

              Across various incarnations, Buffy Summers has proven herself to be an impressive hero. Along with her friends and allies, she's faced many incredible threats and saved the world multiple times. But there are some problems that are so dangerous that an entire multiverse of heroes might be needed to stop them.

              The only chance to combat Silas might be for Buffy and her allies to recruit an entire army of Slayers from across the multiverse -- with Buffy's plan slowly crystalizing in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #28 by Jeremy Lambert, Valentina Pinti, Raul Angulo and Ed Dukeshire.



              Buffy, Willow, Kendra and their allies amongst the Scoobies have been dealing with some increasingly dangerous forces in the modern incarnation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Even beyond the challenges presented by the Hellmother and the recently-dispatched vampiric Xander, the group has been exposed more and more to an expansive multiverse full of Slayers. Along the way, they've also caught the attention of Silas -- a mysterious and powerful force that seeks to consume the memories and minds of all realities to use as sustenance. The Scoobies have been trying to figure out how to combat such a force -- with Willow concerned about his sheer power and Ethan Rayne seemingly betraying the Scoobies to the Watcher's Council in hopes they can better combat Silas.

              However, Buffy has an idea that might change everything -- bringing up the plan to her allies, Buffy argues that she's recently felt down about herself upon discovering she wasn't special in the multiverse. There are countless other variants of Buffy from other realities that deviated in unique ways. But that also means Buffy can see herself as part of a possibly endless army of Slayers. If the heroes could reach across worlds, they could potentially recruit these other Slayers to their cause and work together to fight back against Silas and his plans to consume the multiverse. It's a risky ploy, as it could leave them open to Silas and his Lurkers.



              They could also end up stumbling upon darker worlds and gaining new enemies -- such as the hypothetical world where Giles was turned into a vampire and along with a corrupted Buffy brought pain and malice to their world. But it could also be the key to not just uniting the Slayers, but all sorts of allies from across the Slayerverse. This could even include a trip to the interdimensional Hyperion Hotel -- the last spotted sighting of Angel, Spike, their allies and some of their own multiversal counterparts. If Silas is the overwhelming and overarching threat that the Scoobies have come to believe he is, then recruiting a full army of Slayers to fight him might be the best way to defeat him -- especially if a few multiversal versions of magic-users like Willow could also be found.

              Buffy and Kendra even get their first official recruit in the form of Morgan, a previous Slayer who was resurrected thanks to Anya. With the Slayers and their allies preparing to go to war, it might be time for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise to unite against a threat to every single possible world in existence. But it'll take plenty of them to come up against Silas if his true potential is anywhere close to what Willow and Ethan fear.

                Omg Boom, you're not bloody Loki. Imo Buffy's 'apocalypses' were writ small and yet had a huge emotional charge/impact. This just reads as 'same old same old' to me.

                  So was the last spotted sighting of Angel/Spike and their allies in the BOOM! Angel mag what is being referenced as at the interdimensional Hyperion?

                  What frustrates me most about the BOOM! multiverse is that I get the impression (which could be totally wrong) that they want each multiverse version of the characters to be notably different. As if the multiverses can't exist where the characters are essentially the same. Completely accepting that might not be fair.

                  The desire by BOOM! to try to overtake the original by exploding bigger and it turning out original BtVS is just a small part of the overall picture is such an ambitious project. I think you'd have to be a decade further on to see if anything they do hits highs that succeed to warrant that conviction that everything is bigger, more threatening, more significant etc etc. I have to be honest, I'm dubious it'll be pulled off.

                    Yep, right from the get go Boom ran when they should have walked into the franchise. Instead of concentrating on slowly developing their versions of the characters they raced head long into trying to think of more and more OTT ways to develop the story. Imo their writing is utter crap and it show no signs of improving sadly.

                      It is improving, or the last couple of issues, since Lambert has taken over, have shown an improvement. Bellaire is a colourist, not a writer and that was evident from the start. It may be that they have gone so far that no writer could completely rescue the title.
