Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Angel takes Hollywood by storm in a new comic book series launching this January from BOOM! Studios.
Angel, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, takes Hollywood by storm as “Detective Angel” in a new comic book series coming early next year from BOOM! Studios.
Set to launch in January, BOOM!’s new Angel comic follows the fan-favorite vampire with a soul as he juggles being a television star with being a monster hunter. The eight-issue series comes from writer Christopher Cantwell (Iron Man, The United States of Captain America), artist Daniel Bayliss (WWE The New Day: The Power of Positivity, Labyrinth: Coronation), colorist Patricio Delpeche (Origins) and letterer Becca Carey. The first issue features a main cover by Nimit Malavia, as well as variant covers by InHyuk Lee and Jahoy Lindsay.
“Welcome to Detective TV, starring Angel and his co-star — Cordelia! But wait, Angel isn’t just a celebrity? Nope, he leads a double life… as a real monster hunter for Angel Investigations!” an official synopsis for the new series reads. “Sometimes, though, this double life can get his friends into trouble, and as Wesley recovers from a horrific curse, Angel stumbles into a series of supernatural events which lead to him getting sucked into an unexpected and mysterious world. He soon faces a terrifying enemy, who sees him as a threat…”
“I love writing character ensemble stories, stories about seemingly random individuals who suddenly find themselves trapped in the orbits of others,” said Cantwell. “Angel has one of the best ensembles to ever grace the TV screen, and theirs is a story about a family of choice. When BOOM! approached me, I leaped at the chance to honor and celebrate the original series in a fresh way, pulling on some loose threads and weaving new ones. It takes all the characters and plays 52 card pick-up with them, reshuffling their roles and identities into a literal alternate universe that looks and feels like Angel, but is also something else entirely.”
“I love what BOOM! Studios has done with this series and especially what our incredible writer Chris Cantwell is doing with this story!” added Bayliss. “Here you will see all of our favorite characters in a slightly different reality and yet they all maintain their core and humor in a story that is highly entertaining and with unexpected turns. This has given me the opportunity as an artist to represent great action scenes, creepy creatures and demons, but what I love the most is that Chris also goes a little deeper with the characters and the interactions between them, with more personal situations with which we can relate more closely with the characters. For me, these are the heart and soul of the series, and they have been my favorite scenes when putting ink on the page.”
Played by David Boreanaz, the character of Angel debuted in the premiere episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which first aired on The WB in 1997. The show, which eventually moved to UPN, went on to run for a total of seven seasons, concluding in 2003. Boreanaz reprised his role for Angel, a spinoff series that itself aired on The WB for five seasons from 1999 to 2004. Like with Buffy herself, Angel’s story has continued in a number of comics since then.
Written by Christopher Cantwell and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss with colors by Patricio Delpeche and letters by Becca Carey, Angel #1 goes on sale in January 2022 from BOOM! Studios.
