ANGEL SPOTLIGHT: ILLYRIA
Peter David (w); Nicola Scott (a); Scott, Stamb, Walks, Howard (c)
Presenting an all-new series of Angel one-shots focusing on different members of the supporting cast. Each issue will be presented by a different creative team. First up, Peter David (Spike: Old Times) and Nicola Scott focus on Illyria-a goddess without worshippers, existing in a world not her own, surrounded by humans whose emotions she is trying to comprehend. And her greatest sin was the means by which she arrived here in the first place: she destroyed Winnifred Burkle’s body and soul in order to use it as her own vessel to exist. Now witness Illyria as she tries to find a personal touchstone by which she can at least understand the human-she returns to the remnants of Fred’s old life to try and make herself feel guilty over having destroyed Fred’s very existence. This first issue features covers from Nicola Scott, Zach Howard, Russell Walks, and Steph Stamb.

There’s a vampire preying on the citizens of Los Angeles-nothing new for Spike and company, right? Only one problem: the attacks are happening in broad daylight! As Spike and Angel try to track down the killer, Spike finds himself struggling with something even more unexpected-his own guilty conscience. Can Spike put aside the demons of his past in time to face the vamp feeding on L.A.? Written by Scott Tipton (Spike: Old Wounds) with art by Fernando Goni (Spike: Old Times, Spike: Old Wounds).
