Hellmouth, Part One is the first issue of the Hellmouth comic book miniseries. Written by Jordie Bellaire and Jeremy Lambert, and illustrated by Eleonora Carlini, it was originally published on October 9, 2019 by Boom! Studios.

Synopsis

Buffy and her Scooby Gang will have to muster all their strength as they deal with an open Hellmouth that threatens the lives of everyone they love in Sunnydale. Meanwhile, Angel, the vampire cursed with a soul, arrives in town to find his redemption by doing whatever it takes to close the Hellmouth… and no human, demon, or Slayer will stand in his way.[1]

Continuity

  • The story continues immediately after the Hellmouth is open in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #8, as seen from Angel's perspective in Angel #5.
  • Giles goes after Anya in her magic shop, having previously sent Buffy there in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5.
  • Angel tells Buffy about seeing her in the Hellmouth surrounded by fire, in reference to his visions in Angel #5.
  • Buffy finds the body of Sandy Noxon, who had danced with Robin in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #8.
