Buffy Goes from ‘Twilight’ to ‘New Moon’ With Parody Comic Cover

Despite the rather intense differences between the vampire lore of Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight,” themes of romance and rivalry (and the name of a certain character’s former secret identity) tether the franchises together at least superficially. Recognizing the value of parody, Dark Horse Comics has released a new cover for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #36, which echoes the love triangle of “New Moon” pretty hilariously.

MTV Splash Page has an exclusive first look at the full cover, putting Angel, Spike and Buffy in the place of Edward, Jacob and Bella. It’s an ironic set of replacements considering Buffy’s slayer skills compared to Bella’s characteristic helplessness. There’s also the matter of Buffy’s considerably more liberated libido standing in stark contrast to Bella’s more repressed urges.

The cover alone won’t reveal whether Buffy winds up with either vampire long term, but those on “Team Angel” can always root for Buffy to birth a fast-aging daughter for Spike to creeptastically crush on.

Readers can find out for sure when Whedon and artist Georges Jeanty hit the title this September.
