BOOM! Studios has announced a new eight-issue Angel mini-series coming our way in 2022. Angel is taking Angel Investigations to prime time.
Welcome to Detective TV, starring Angel and his co-star—Cordelia! But wait, Angel isn’t just a celebrity? Nope, he leads a double life… as a real monster hunter for Angel Investigations!
Sometimes, though, this double life can get his friends into trouble, and as Wesley recovers from a horrific curse, Angel stumbles into a series of supernatural events which lead to him getting sucked into an unexpected and mysterious world. He soon faces a terrifying enemy, who sees him as a threat . . .
“I love writing character ensemble stories, stories about seemingly random individuals who suddenly find themselves trapped in the orbits of others,” said series writer Christopher Cantwell. “ANGEL has one of the best ensembles to ever grace the TV screen, and theirs is a story about a family of choice,” said Cantwell. “When BOOM! approached me, I leaped at the chance to honor and celebrate the original series in a fresh way, pulling on some loose threads and weaving new ones. It takes all the characters and plays 52 card pick-up with them, reshuffling their roles and identities into a literal alternate universe that LOOKS and FEELS like Angel, but is also something else entirely.”
Joining Cantwell is artist Daniel Bayliss. Angel #1 is scheduled to arrive in January 2022.
