BOOM! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, announced a new graphic novel program collecting out of print and rare stories officially continuing the world of Joss Whedon’s hit television series Angel. Beginning with Angel: Legacy Edition Book One in October 2019, BOOM! Studios will collect every issue of Angel from previous publishers in chronological order, including hard to find and out of print stories in the value-priced Legacy Edition format.
Created by visionary writer and director Whedon, Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5, 1999, and was a spinoff from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The series ran for five seasons from 1999 to 2004, starring David Boreanaz as Angel, the vampire with a soul who moved to LA and set up shop as a supernatural private investigator. Despite Angel’s best efforts to deal with the sins of his past all by himself, Angel Investigations became home to other lost souls searching for redemption and willing to fight by his side.
Angel Investigations is dedicated to its mission of helping the helpless, and putting a stop to a seemingly never-ending demon horde intent on destroying LA and then the world. This volume features works by the Emmy Award-winning writer of Angel David Fury, bestselling author Christopher Golden, and five-time Eisner Award-winning artist Eric Powell. Angel: Legacy Edition Book One also features a new cover by Nimit Malavia (Firefly: Legacy Edition).
“Angel is one of the most beloved television series of the last 20 years and has an incredible comic book legacy that we’re excited to honor with these collections,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Even if you’re a long-time fan of the broody vampire with a soul like me, you’re going to find that each volume of Angel: Legacy Edition contains a story you might never have read – or been able to track down.”
Angel: Legacy Edition Book One is the newest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to original series, including Once & Future, Faithless, Abbott, Bury The Lede, Grass Kings and Klaus. The imprint also publishes popular licensed properties including Firefly, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
