Calling All Buffy Fans For San Diego Comic Con Vampire Hunt

Any Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans on their way to San Diego Comic Con in July might be interested to hear they can take part in their very own scavenger style vampire hunt.

The Buffy TV series starred Sarah Michelle Geller as the eponymous Slayer, and ran for seven seasons from 1997 to 2003. It began on WB and then moving to UPN for the final two seasons. Such was the show’s popularity that it then carried on for another four seasons (with a fifth out soon) in comic book form.

The show’s cult status has seen it a frequent feature at comic-cons, with recent rumours that 20th Century Fox would really, really like a reboot. So for this year’s San Diego bash Fox have planned something rather special.

The vampire scavenger hunt will take place on Saturday July 21st, over San Diego’s historical Gaslamp Quarter and throughout the San Diego Convention Centre. Hunters will have to follow clues to seek out vamp nests at various locations around the area. At each location, they will receive rewards.

Prizes on offer for successful hunters include Buffy Funkos, t-shirts, pins, posters, comics and more.

Grab your stake and get ready to kick some good old fashioned vamp butt.*
