Review: Angel Season 6 Vol. 1

Angel Season 6 CoverI am a long time Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, as I have watched every season of the show to include the continuation in the comics. In the same vein, I have also watched every season of Angel, but have not read any of the comics, and feel like I almost failed as a fan. The reason why I have this feeling is because I am pretty much in the minority of this opinion, and I actually liked Angel more than I did Buffy. I know these words can be considered blasphemy in the Whedonverse, as there would be no Angel without Buffy.

This is all true, but at the same time, one must consider that writing staff at Angel had gotten their footing as far as them knowing who the characters were and they had the mythology figured out. Either way, these characters have taken on a life of their own in the comics. As Buffy has gone on to star in their versions of continuing seasons. While Angel, has continued on as well but in a series of limited series and joint series, such as Angel & Faith.

Before now, they have been collected in trade paperbacks until someone at Dark Horse realized that they can follow the model set forth by Buffy and here we have Angel Season 6. This collection picks right after where the TV shows ended, exploring the reason why the team split up after season 5. This ultimately answers what happened to Los Angeles after it descended into hell. They even show what effect it had on supporting characters like Spike. By volume’s end, it makes a fan wonder if they could have had a budget which would have supported this massive arc.

Altogether, an excellent arc, that not only continues the story for fans of the original show, but pushes these familiar characters in directions that one might have not see n if the TV show continued. The story by Joss Whedon and John Lynch, prove why they are masters of this genre and continue to be the caretakers of this beloved franchise. The art by Franco Urru and Nick Runge presses the limit of comic book art, in the most powerful way. Overall, an excellent collection, that serves more than an appeasement to the fan base but a tribute to them.

IDW Takes Comics to Fever Ridge!

[Fever Ridge #1 Cover A]Beginning this February, IDW Publishing is excited to announce a unique new miniseries by writer Mike Heimos and artist Nick Runge. Taking readers back to World War II and to the oft-unseen locales explored by the 6th Infantry Division of the 6th Army, Fever Ridge is an 8-part series, a historical fiction inspired by real soldiers and their incredible experiences.

Written by first-time creator Heimos in tribute to his grandfather, a decorated soldier, Fever Ridge puts readers in country with “The Sightseein’ Sixth” and the Alamo Scouts, their jungle commandoes. This is a look at the world’s greatest war from another angle. Exploring General Douglas MacArthur’s campaigns deep in the jungles of New Guinea and the Philippines, this is a story that will explore exotic characters, events, and locales and will unearth  a few secrets along the way.

“I am thrilled to be teaming up with IDW to tell this story of ‘The Sightseers’,” said Heimos. “It is one that involves subject matter that has received too little attention in general; almost none in historical fiction and I don’t think any in graphic novels/comics” he continued.
[Fever Ridge #1 Cover RI]“The heart of the forest can be as cruel and tangled as our mind. Yet, it’s beauty and fire hold the keys to this world,” said series artist Runge. “The War is only one of the many faces that shape this tale of survival and suspense in the dark corners of New Guinea. Our main characters face not only the horror of combat and secrets of the jungle, but the question of how these events will effect the path of their lives when they return home…. if they do….   This is a new take on World War II in the Pacific and I’m truly honored to have a fantastic company like IDW publishing this series. It’s a perfect fit!”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with artist Nick Runge on a number of covers for various books I’ve edited,” said editor Tom Waltz.  “His awesome talent speaks for itself and he’s always proven to be a true professional. But, man, I was completely awestruck when he first showed me the pages he was doing for Fever Ridge. I mean, I knew he was good, but not THAT good! Combine that with Michael’s fantastic story and I knew right then and there, we needed to find a way to get Fever Ridge published at IDW — and we did!”

Rounded out by the coloring talents of Jordie Bellaire and the letters of Brandon DeStefanoFever Ridge promises to be as eye-popping as it is vividly thought-provoking.

IDW Announces Ghostbusters Ongoing Series

Official Press Release

IDW Announces GHOSTBUSTERS Ongoing Series

All-new monthly series beginning in September 

[Ghostbusters Ongoing #1 Cover Image]San Diego, CA (June 24, 2011) — IDW Publishing and Sony Pictures Consumer Products are thrilled to announce the launch of an all-new, ongoing GHOSTBUSTERS comic book series. Spinning out of IDW’s hit Infestation event, and featuring Ghostbusters: Infestation scribe Erik Burham, the ghost hunters from New York City are back with exciting new adventures starting in September. Helping Burnham bring this zany story of the dead to life will be fan-favorite artist Dan Schoening (Ghostbusters: What in Samhain Just Happened?!) and popular IDW Ghostbusters cover artist Nick Runge.
“My dream since I took over the editorial duties on IDW’s Ghostbusters comics license was to bring the boys in proton packs to monthly comics,” said series editor Tom Waltz. “We’ve had fantastic Ghostbusters one-shots and mini-series up to this point, but the incredible success of Ghostbusters: Infestation has proven that Ghostbusters fans, old and new alike, are still very hungry for ghostbusting tales. With the awesome creative team we’ve gathered to make it happen, the best is yet to come!”
In this ongoing series, psychokinetic energy is on the rise again, and business is booming for the boys. Ray is troubled by what could be a prophetic dream—is this an ill omen of an upcoming apocaplypse, or just a little indigestion? These questions and more are raised in the first issue of the all-new GHOSTBUSTERS comic series. In addition, each issue will contain two pages of exclusive behind-the-scenes extras by creator Tristan Jones (Tales of the TMNT.)
IDW will offer special retailer incentive covers, including a “Who Ya Gonna call” cover by Schoening, and a glow-in-the-dark cover. Furthermore, as part of IDW’s “Be a Ghostbuster” promotion, retailers will have the opportunity to obtain a unique variant featuring up to four personalized Ghostbusters on their cover. Fans are encouraged to reach out to their retailers to learn more about these exclusive variant covers.
GHOSTBUSTERS #1 ($3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be available in stores in September 2011. Diamond order code: JUL11 0130
