Dark Horse Comics has officially announced "Angel Season 11," the latest installment in the publisher's line of "Buffy" and "Angel" comics that continue the saga of Joss Whedon's original TV series. Corinna Bechko ("Lara Croft," "Star Wars: Legacy II") is set to pen the new adventures of Buffy's first love, with Geraldo Borges ("Deadpool," "Ghost") and Michelle Madsen ("Buffy Season 9," "Angel & Faith Season 10") on art duties; Scott Fischer ("Angel & Faith Season 10," "Buffy: The High School Years") and Jeff Dekal ("Journey into Mystery," "Dark Horse Presents") will provide covers.
The description for the series reads, "Angel Season 11 finds Angel being tormented by memories of his past. His visions link his dark past to a Big Bad coming in the future. The goddess Illyria intervenes and assists Angel as he discovers that it might be possible to change the future by traveling back in time to change the past."
On joining the title, Bechko said, "I'm thrilled that I'll be helping to add to a little corner of the Whedonverse, a rich and exciting place that contains infinite possibilities for exploration. Of course, the fact that I'll be doing so with Angel, one of the most complex and interesting characters, means I have big shoes to fill. But I can't wait to spend some quality time with him during this journey, and to have a bit of fun along the way!"
