Official Press Release
San Diego, CA (August 29, 2005) When Joss Whedon’s classic character,
Angel, returned to comics in the form of IDW Publishing’s “Angel: the
Curse” miniseries, there was an anxious audience hungry for new
adventures based on the character. The miniseries delivered, going back
to press twice for issue 1, and was well received throughout its
five-issue arc. What the series didn’t do was satisfy the hunger for new
stories that included Angel’s supporting cast. Fans wanted more. And now
they’ll have it.
Angel returns in an all-new adventure by the lauded “Angel: The Curse” team
of writers, Jeff Mariotte and artist, David Messina. This time around,
Angel is lured back to Los Angeles to bring an end to a string of brutal,
yet strangely familiar and vampiric slayings. The case will reunite
Angel-the vampire with a soul-with old friends and old enemies. But some
of the roles have changed. This is the event that Angel fans have been
dying for-when Angel’s supporting cast joins him for a new comic book
“This is the story I’ve been wanting to tell,” said writer Jeff
Mariotte. “For a guy who’s basically a loner, many of Angel’s best
moments come from his interactions with the rest of the cast. There’ll be
a lot of twists and turns for Angel fans in this miniseries, and I hope
they all enjoy where it leads.”
The first issue of a five-part miniseries, “Angel: Old Friends #1” debuts
in November with 32 full color pages, and covers by David Messina, Tone
Rodriguez, Zach Howard, and Lee Kohse.
