Angel_AtF1.jpgThink of this as Angel: Season Six. IDW Publishing is following the lead of Dark Horse Comics and releasing an all new Angel series that picks up right after Season Five ended.

The first issue in this maxi-series looks at who lived after that climactic battle, who died, and what happened to all of Los Angeles in its wake.

Best of all, Joss Whedon hand picked the creative team of Brian Lynch and Franco Urru to tell the tales, it’s just too bad this is a maxi-series instead of an ongoing. Then again, if fans pick up this series in droves, it could prompt a much longer run, or even a season seven follow up.

    I wouldn’t say that Joss Whedon “hand-picked the creative team”. This “team” has already worked on previous non-canon Angel miniseries for IDW. If anything they were the most available team. Personally, I would have preferred a Grant Morrison/Frank Quitely team on Angel Season 6.

    As desperate as it sounds, I’ll take whatever team they can muster. I’ve been waiting for this ever since they announced BtVS: S8, and I was *elated* when Major Spoilers posted the news earlier this summer. I’ve been following the Buffy series (both here and in print), and I’m impressed. If Angel is half as good as it, I’ll be more than satisfied.

    It does suck that its a maxi, though – I hope that changes.

    Is Major Spoilers going to review the new Angel series?

    Well, I don’t see why not. I’ll have to see about getting it added to my pull list…
