With Angel trapped in Sunnydale, the rest of Angel’s newly formed team has their hands full dealing with the Hellmouth’s fallout in Los Angeles. Will this gang of supernatural crime-solvers be able to protect Los Angeles from the shockwaves of the Hellmouth’s opening… and from newly arrived vampire, Spike?
ANGEL #6 features features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots, Batman: Arkham Knight), and a variant cover by horror illustrator Scott Buoncristiano (Harry Potter: Magical Film Projections, Dead Rabbit), as well as a connecting variant cover by artist Goñi Montes (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)that connects to HELLMOUTH #2 and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9.
Created by visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Marvel’s The Avengers film franchise), Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5th, 1999 and was a spin-off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The series ran for five seasons from 1999-2004, starring David Boreanaz as Angel, the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul who moved to LA to 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 soon became home to other lost souls searching for redemption and willing to fight by his side.
