In every generation, there is a chosen one. On screen, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. Off screen, for fans of Joss Whedon's cult TV series, the show itself fulfilled that role. In the late '90s, it thoroughly dispatched with other teen-centric competition to become a beacon of hope for television watchers.

Because time flies when you're staking (or smooching) vamps, or repeatedly revisiting a program about just that, it has been 20 years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer made its TV debut. While it will always be immortal in our hearts, that's an occasion worth celebrating. At Junky Comics, they're paying tribute to one of the great pieces of late 20th century pop culture art by enlisting the creative talents of a whole lot of Buffy aficionados, then decking the walls with their efforts from March 10 to 31.

In fact, 19 artists will unveil their homages to Ms Summers, the town of Sunnydale, the Scooby gang and all of the demons the hellmouth spit out at them at the aptly titled Welcome to Sunnydale: A Buffy 20th Anniversary Art Show. Heading along on opening night is recommended, and not just because there'll be beer and wine among the fun. Dedicated Buffy buffs won't need reminding that March 10 was the date the first episode ever aired on US TV back in 1997.
