Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has unveiled the first preview of their upcoming second Buffyverse comic, Angel #1, by Bryan Hill and Gleb Melnikov, hitting stores on May 29th. BOOM! shocked the world by Kirkman-dropping the comic in April with an unannounced #0.
Meet Angelus, leader of an army of brutal vampire warriors terrorizing the land, hungry for power and thirsty for blood as he invades villages and takes innocent people past the point of no return. Several centuries later, Angel spends his time protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. It may be that he's too late to save his humanity and his soul but he's lost too many people in his ongoing fight against the forces of evil, and he's finally ready to find a solution to his tortured existence as a vampire with a conscience. When his path leads him to an old friend in Sunnydale, sparks will fly and demons will clash as Angel's search takes him ever closer to the person who could end his quest before it's even begun—the Chosen One, Buffy Summers.
ANGEL #1 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots, Batman: Arkham Knight) and variant covers by artists Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Boris Pelcer (Angel), and Jonathan Case (Firefly).
