IDW Publishing Reunites Angel with a Cast of Favorites
San Diego, CA (August 29, 2005) When Joss Whedon’s classic character, Angel, returned to comics in the form of IDW Publishing’s Angel: the Curse miniseries, there was an anxious audience hungry for new adventures based on the character. The miniseries delivered, going back to press twice for issue 1, and was well received throughout its five-issue arc. What the series didn’t do was satisfy the hunger for new stories that included Angel’s supporting cast. Fans wanted more. And now they’ll have it.
Angel returns in an all-new adventure by the lauded Angel: The Curse team of writers, Jeff Mariotte and artist, David Messina. This time around, Angel is lured back to Los Angeles to bring an end to a string of brutal, yet strangely familiar and vampiric slayings. The case will reunite Angel-the vampire with a soul-with old friends and old enemies... but some of the roles have changed. This is the event that Angel fans have been dying for-when Angel’s supporting cast joins him for a new comic book adventure.
“This is the story I’ve been wanting to tell,” said writer Jeff Mariotte. “For a guy who’s basically a loner, many of Angel’s best moments come from his interactions with the rest of the cast. There’ll be a lot of twists and turns for Angel fans in this miniseries, and I hope they all enjoy where it leads.”
The first issue of a five-part miniseries, Angel: Old Friends #1 debuts in November with 32 full color pages, and covers by David Messina, Tone Rodriguez, Zach Howard, and Lee Kohse. About IDW Publishing
