Official Press Release
San Diego, CA (June 5, 2009) – Coming this August, IDW offers Angel fans yet another hair-raising adventure. Spinning out of IDW’s main Angel storyline, Angel: Only Human follows Illyria and Gunn on a bizarre road trip as they try to reconcile their “inner” demons with their newfound humanity. Written by Scott Lobdell with art by David Messina, Angel: Only Human is a funny and frightening five-part story with two of the Angelverse’s most complex and beloved characters.
“Angel: Only Human is a fun and creepy detour from the main storyline,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Publisher/Editor-in-Chief. “This miniseries shows fans more about what’s happened to Illyria Gunn now that they’re both dealing with the consequences of After the Fall and how they tried to end, well, every thing.”
Available monthly beginning in August, Angel: Only Human takes Illyria and Gunn on a journey that involves funerals, fire, and family obligations. Not to mention the return of one of the most terrifying demon gangs from the original TV series, The Scourge. Artist David Messina beautifully illustrates every entrail-laden battle and heartfelt emotional moment as Gunn and Illyria realize they have far more in common than a desire for destruction. With striking covers by Messina, fans should also look out for variant covers by David Dorman.
Angel: Only Human #1 will be available in stores in August. Diamond order code JUN09 0935
