Major First Appearance of “Fred” in Joss Whedon’s Angel #2 From BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios have revealed a first look at Angel #2, written by Bryan Edward Hill with art from Gleb Melnikov, featuring the first appearance of fan favorite Winifred “Fred” Burkle, available in stores June 26, 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.

Angel is in Sunnydale, searching for a cure to his centuries-long existence as a vampire cursed with a soul, but all he’s found is even more death, the loss of a loved one, and a mysterious monster that he can’t see or follow, that uses the evil mirror of social media and modern communication to lure victims into an existence worse than death. Can Angel catch up to the monster before it can take the lives of any other Sunnydale teens? And what exactly does the monster want with a young, troubled woman named Winifred Burkle? 

Angel #2 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian and variant covers by artists Scott Buoncristiano, Will Sliney, and Adam Gorham.

Review: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #2

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge #2

If you asked me to guess the quality of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #2, I’d have been way off. I’ll admit I was a bit biased going in to reading the issue as it’s a tie-in to a theme park. Those types of comics don’t exactly do well. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge though, is a bit different. The comics are focused on the Star Wars aspect first and theme park second. It also brilliantly balances a meta-story while also being an anthology.

Dok-Ondar is surrounded by the First Order who’s not too happy with him. With a Jedi lightsaber present, Dok-Ondar recounts how he came across the Jedi artifact. That story? It’d involve Greedo and the notorious gangster Jabba the Hutt!

Writer Ethan Sacks brilliantly mixes the various eras of Star Wars in this comic. The lightsaber is from the prequels. Greedo we know, and the flashback takes place, during the original trilogy. This series’ main story is during the sequel trilogy. Sacks works all three together and does so in a seamless way.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #2 also balances humor and action. With Greedo as the main star of the story, at times you feel like it’s a Han Solo adventure. Greedo has the attempted swagger of Solo but is an utter failure in what he does. That combination creates a lot of comedy delivering a fun read that’ll get you to laugh or at least enjoy the pulp like feel of it all.

Will Sliney‘s art helps as well. Again, with theme-park tie-ins, I don’t recall the art being all that good. Sliney, with colorist Dono Sanchez-Almara and Protobunker along with letterer Travis Lanham have broken that stereotype. Along with Sacks’ writing, the art has a fun quality element to it all. It’s clear the team is channeling Solo with Greedo. His body language will remind you of the hero. But, that helps, as Greedo is such a screw up, the positive memory is twisted by Greedo’s failures. The art is a driver of the humor.

The issue is a solid one as this series feels like it’s improving. The ability to blend together so many eras of Star Wars is impressive. At the same time the issue really drives home it’s writing its own new addition to that history. This is becoming a surprisingly fun series that’s a perfect summer read.
