Yesterday, Bleeding Cool Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston pointed out what appeared to be a cameo appearance by popular Buffyverse character Charles Gunn in Angel #3. Today, BOOM! Studios confirmed that Gunn will be coming to the pages of Angel, making his first "full" appearance in Angel #4.
BOOM! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, revealed today Charles Gunn, the iconic vampire hunter, will make his first full appearance in the next issue of the hit series, ANGEL #4, reimagining the pop culture phenomenon by acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (Batman, American Carnage), artist Gleb Melnikov (Saban's Go Go Power Rangers), along with visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel's The Avengers), available August 28, 2019.
After saving the mysterious and troubled Fred from the demon stalking her in Sunnydale, Angel gets sucked into a twisted realm where he is tortured by visions of past atrocities and a mysterious figure with a stake aimed straight for his heart! In order to escape an eternity under the demon's power, Angel must battle its insidious illusions and defeat his own fears. But little does he know, a much greater evil is on the horizon and he'll need every resource and ally he can find to help him save the world, starting with Fred, who's somehow connected to the dark forces surrounding Angel, and the first appearance of a familiar face from the streets of Los Angeles—vampire hunter Charles Gunn—but is he here to help the vampire with a soul or dust him once and for all?
ANGEL #4 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots), as well as variant covers by artists Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Gabriel Hernandez Walta (Vision), and series artist Gleb Melnikov.
Below, see some of those covers from Angel #4, which hits stores later this month on August 28th.
