“They’re special. They’re called. They’re strong. They punch really hard and run really fast and they’re always, always girls.”
This is 16-year-old Billy Lane’s accurate description of Vampire Slayers – accurate, that is, except for the last part about Slayers always being girls. Because there’s a new Slayer in town, and it’s Billy himself.
The current issue of Dark Horse Comics’ Buffy Season 9 is the second half of a two-part introduction of Billy the Vampire Slayer. This initially reluctant boy, the victim of homophobic bullying in his small town, takes on the responsibility of facing the new zompire threat. He’s got a Watcher, Devon, who also happens to be his love interest. And, according to Devon, he’s got moxie.
