    Like the title says, folks. Here is a thread for discussion of and news about the upcoming Angel comics being published by IDW.

    For those not in the know, these stories will be authorized by Joss himself, and will be canon in the Angel/Buffyverse. For all intents and purposes, we're getting more episodes (only it doesn't matter how busy the actors are, the WB can't cancel them, and there is no limit on the effects budget).

    If nothing else, buying these comics will demonstrate support for Joss and for the Buffyverse franchise. Plus, the writing is certain to be top-notch.

    For now, I'll lock any other threads about these comics and will request that we keep all the discussion here. Once the comics start, then maybe we could have discussion threads about eacy episode as they come out (like we used to do with episodes when they aired, for those who remember the good ol' days). For now, though, we keep all related posts here so we don't clutter up the rest of the board.

    If anyone wants to repost info, comments, or sneak previews here that were previously in other threads, please feel free!

    Time to go to work...

    First.

    It seems by Angel's last comment in the preview that the chaos is localized in LA and the events take place months later.

    Yes, but he didn't exactly "slay" the dragon, only subdued it, which is quite a disappointment. Albeit, a pretty cool disappointment.

    I wasn't that impressed with the preview, maybe it's because I've been waiting since like March and my expectations were to high. It could also be the fact that the dragon isn't dead, and personally I kinda wanted to see Angel slay the dragon.

    to bren thy god, it comes out late November, I think the 28th

    Heres the link to the 5 page preview for anyone who is yet to see it

    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/34064

    Must say im excited. This preview only hightened the fact. Iv been loving Season 8 of Buffy in the DarkHorse comics, and hopefully IDW can pull it off with as much success with Angel.

    Quite like the story so far i think its way unreasonable to believe Angel and co could completely decimate that entire army and survive, like many people wanted/expected, so the whole LA ablaze thing with 'casualties on both sides' is rather a good take. Love the dragon persuasion thingo, that image with Angel on its back flying over the wreckage of LA below is AWESOME....

    so this is canon right, so this is happening alongside Season 8 of Buffy?

    OMG it looks awesome, i knew L.A. would become Hell but i didn't expect that much, to bad we couldn't see what happened to Gunn or the other ones.

    That looks fan-generated.
