BOOM! Studios, along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers), presents the shocking reimagining of the pop culture phenomenon ANGEL!

Angel walks the line between two worlds; a vampire cursed with a soul, he’s spent centuries battling back the forces that would destroy humanity, 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 redemption he seeks can only come at a startling price.

As Angel reunites with old friends and old spirits in Sunnydale, he comes face to face with a new demon — one set on destroying a generation that Angel is entirely unfamiliar with. Will Angel be able to adapt to this new kind of foe…or will he succumb to the demons of his dark and terrible past as Angelus?

Following the journey of Angel through past and present, critically-acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (Detective Comics, Killmonger) and artist Gleb Melnikov present a brand new, modern take on one of the most iconic vampires in pop culture, perfect for fans and new readers alike!

Shocking Sacrifices Made in Joss Whedon’s Angel #1

BOOM! Studios have revealed a first look at Angel #1, written by Bryan Hill with art from Gleb Melnikov, with the appearance of old faces from Angel’s past and new threats in his future, available in stores May 29, 2019.

Meet Angelus, leader of an army of brutal vampire warriors terrorizing the land, hungry for power and thirsty for blood as he invades villages and takes innocent people past the point of no return. Several centuries later, Angel spends his time 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. It may be that he’s too late to save his humanity and his soul but he’s lost too many people in his ongoing fight against the forces of evil, and he’s finally ready to find a solution to his tortured existence as a vampire with a conscience. When his path leads him to an old friend in Sunnydale, sparks will fly and demons will clash as Angel’s search takes him ever closer to the person who could end his quest before it’s even begun—the Chosen One, Buffy Summers. 

Angel #1 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian and variant covers by artists Scott Buoncristiano, Boris Pelcer, and Jonathan Case.

BOOM! Studios Unveils The First Look at Firefly #4

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at Firefly #4, arriving in comic book shops on February 27th. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon continue the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon’s sold-out return to comic books in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

But that’s too many enemies and not enough crew so Mal and Zoe are forced to team up with Boss Moon, the relentless Unificator who’s chased them down to the far outer reaches of the ‘verse and who offers them a devil’s deal: turn themselves in to be tried as war criminals and her people will spare theirs.

Review: Green River Killer: A True Detective Story

This review was originally published in 2011 during the graphic novel’s original release

Green River Killer: A True Detective Story

Written by (at the time) Entertainment Weekly contributor Jeff Jensen, this graphic novel covers the true story about the Green River Killer, a serial killer who terrorized the Washington State area. Jensen’s father was the lead detective on the case. I’m a huge crime/noir fan, so being able to read a true story like this is just an added bonus to the type of comic I already like.

We’re taken through the history of the case, leading up to the capture of the person who committed it and what police dealt with afterwards. It’s a rare lifting of the curtain as to the history of such a notorious crime spree.

But, the heart of the graphic novel is the fact that Jensen grew up around this case. It’s very much a “letter” to his father and through it; you can tell he’s dealing with his father’s dedication to the case and how that might have affected the family dynamic. It adds so much depth to the comic that might not have been there.

But as Jensen works through why his father worked as hard as he did, he also attempts to work through the killer’s motivations as well. The last third of the book seems to be focused on that, and it brings a chilling feeling to the story mixed along with Jensen’s personal issues. And it sticks with you.  For days I talked about the story with my friends, like Jensen, like the detectives who worked on the case and like the killer himself, I struggled with the outcome.

It’s so rare to have a ripped from the headlines, true life comic come out and it’s fantastic it’s of this high quality.
