While Buffy and Angel shippers are having heart palpitations over the new cover of Entertainment Weekly, fans of Buffy and Spike, or just Buffy solo will be glad to know Entertainment Weekly is releasing three exclusive Buffy 20th anniversary covers to go along with the newsstand version featuring Buffy and Angel. Now, the question is where can you get the Entertainment Weekly Buffy covers? If it's a Spuffy cover you seek, you might have to work for it, guys.
The only cover that will be available on newsstands appears to be the one featuring Buffy and Angel together. However, there are three more covers being billed as "limited edition," and they feature Buffy and Spike, Buffy, and Angel respectively. While it has not yet been confirmed, it seems likely subscribers will be sent one of the limited edition covers as a perk for receiving the magazine weekly. But, even if you don't subscribe, you may still be able to get your hands on all four of the stunning anniversary covers.
Remember, even though it sounds blasphemous, not everyone is a Buffy fan, and some of those subscribers will likely sell their issues online, so keep a lookout for the additional covers on sites like eBay. Alternatively, if your friend is a subscriber, you can offer up your soul to get your hands on the beautiful Buffy solo cover. Sometimes the magazine sells back-issues as well, so you may want to reach out to the company directly or check Amazon when the official cover arrives on newsstands, Friday, March 31.
Sometimes, Entertainment Weekly will include all of its limited edition covers inside its newsstand edition, so it's entirely possible you won't have to hunt each one down individually. Even if you do, the scavenger hunt will only prove you are still an honorary member of the Scooby Gang who will do anything in the name of your favorite slayer.
One thing is certain, for Buffy devotees, these covers are absolute must-haves, and you won't rest until you have collected them all, even if it means engaging in a bidding war or two on the internet — just don't make any deals with Moloch the Corruptor, OK? Because that never ends well.
