The Vampire With A Soul Reimagined In Thrilling and Historic New Comic Book Series in July 2019
BOOM! Studios in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products today revealed the cover of the latest issue of the highly praised reimagining of the brooding vampire – ANGEL #3 by all-star creative team of acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (Batman, American Carnage) and Gleb Melnikov (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers), available July 31, 2019.
Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark…including himself. Now, looking for redemption for the atrocities committed by the monster he was when he was first turned at the age of 18, Angel stumbles upon a new demon uprising and a shocking truth: The restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he’s never met…but may now be his greatest enemy.
Darkness has possessed another innocent…and Angel has no choice but to fight them. Trapped in an empty hospital with nowhere to go, Angel needs to find a way to save the host from this deadly and elusive demon, or have yet another life on his conscience. Will his new ally Fred be able to help him…or is she the reason he’s battling this monster in the first place?
ANGEL #3 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots) and a variant cover by Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
Created by visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers film franchise), Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5th, 1999 and was a spin-off from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
