BOOM! Studios has announced its first surprise drop in the company’s history with next week’s release of Angel #0.
According to the company’s press release, this issue was not solicated via normal means, which makes us ask, “So how do comic book stores get this?” BOOM! Studios has the solution as it is shipping a 1:1 ratio with next week’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer #4 release. So, if you store ordered 15 copies of Buffy, it will get 15 copies of Angel.
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.
I kind of like these surprises, what about you?
