The final Angel

Despite my best efforts to pretend that it’s not actually happening, it seems as though our time on ANGEL and SPIKE comics is rapidly winding down.

ANGEL ends at issue 44, SPIKE ends at issue 8… but somehow that wasn’t quite enough. So the month after those two series ends, we’re going to be releasing our final issue of new ANGEL-related material, in the form of a 48-page ANGEL YEARBOOK. What’s it going to contain? Well, final stories from many/most of the people who’ve been important parts of our 5-year run on ANGEL. Details on interiors will follow (one little leaked detail: I’m doing a little 2-pager in there with art by Messina and Urru), but for now, here’re two of the three covers for the special. First this one from Nick Runge:



…and also this one from DAVID MESSINA.

Soon enough, I’ll talk about a project that I’ll be co-writing that’s gonna feature David Messina on art, too. After all this time working with David in an editorial capacity, I can’t wait to see what he does with with one of my scripts.



  1. Oh, it’s great! I’m looking forward The ANGEL YEARBOOK! But in the same time I feel so sad… 😦

  2. Nice looking forward to this. I wonder who else is going to die, I mean Angel does not have much team left all his original team is dead and his second team is basically just Gunn.

  3. Great news – glad we get at least one more month of IDW Angel stories. Looking forward to hearing more details.

  4. This made my month!

  6. Great news about the additional works – Love the Angel Year Covers. But boy, how quickly the ending seems to have arrived. I send my great big “Thank You” to all the wonderful staff at IDW that brought the Angelverse, Spike, Illyria and the “After the Fall” series. I have been with there from the start and will be there at the end.

    I am one of the readers who came over from the TV series, and never read any comic books before – so not only did I have more Angelverse to love at IDW, but I also found my way to other works as well.

    Thank You again for myself and for all the fans at Buffytube –

  8. Aw man, I am so not looking forward to Angel reverting to DH. I loved the grittier tones and their ability to straddle the absurd supernatural storylines and the reality of LA.

    DH didn’t do a good job with the series in the first place, not expecting a lot this round.
