Boom! Studios have revealed another familiar character that will be joining the Scoobies in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot comics due out next year. Robin Wood has had a revamp and is now a fellow high school student rather than the Principal.
The new look Robin is described as “a model student and high school heartthrob with a mysteriously broken wrist”.
In a statement, Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer said, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a love letter to everything we love about our favorite Slayer and her world – but as you’ve seen with Drusilla’s introduction as The Mistress, there are no rules we won’t break. Reinventing Robin Wood as a mysterious new teenage ally – and maybe more – for Buffy is a key part of that new direction. But just like his original introduction to TV audiences, our Robin Wood comes loaded with a mysterious past, a secret mission and a special connection to the inhabitants of Sunnydale. We can’t tell you when he debuts in the series… only that it’s going to be big. And we’re not done breaking rules, yet.”
