Coming August 31 is the very first issue in Dark Horse’s latest comic series Angel and Faith. Fans of Buffy the Vamprie Slayer and the Angel spin-off have been waiting months for the latest comic in the Buffyverse and finally the wait is over! Issue #1 of Angel and Faith picks up where Buffy Season 8 left off, but instead of having Angel part of the upcoming Buffy Season 9, him and Faith are getting their own series. Yay! Check out the details for the first issue below.
Warning: There may be little spoilers for those who haven’t read Buffy Season 8.
“Left in a near-catatonic state following the events in Buffy Season 8, Angel will need a seriously rude awakening if he’s to make amends for his ill-conceived deeds. Enter rebel Slayer with a cause-Faith Lehane. Together they’ll have full access to the Watcher files and opportunities to make amends for all they’ve done . . . and will do.”
Sounds awesome! I can’t wait to check this comic out, however, I’ll have to wait a bit. Unfortunately, I am SUPER behind on Buffy, I only read the very first volume of Season 8. Bad me. But I will catch up… eventually, and then I’ll read Angel and Faith. I am interested in seeing where they take the story, I love me some Angel but I have a love/hate relationship with Faith – it’s like 90% hate and 10% love. She usually annoys me, even when she’s a good guy. Guess I’ll have to wait and see how she is now.
Below is a little art preview of the Angel and Faith comic. The images came directly from the artist’s website so they aren’t covered in text and UPCs and such.
