Angel #1 Revealed by BOOM! Studios
BOOM! Studios has revealed new details for Angel #1, written by Bryan Hill with art from Gleb Melnikov , along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon, available in stores May 29, 2019.
Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. But now, when the trail of the most recent demonic uprising takes him to Sunnydale, he realizes that 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. The brooding, dark vampire with a soul has just left the city of lights after marking another death on the never-ending list of debts he owes against his soul. Is he ready for one last sacrifice if it brings his long sought after peace?
Angel #1 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian and a monster-themed variant cover by illustrator Scott Buoncristiano depicting the terrifying Der Kindestod, from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer season two episode “Killed By Death.”
