Angel fans may finally get closure with new comic books
I would never have seen a single episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel if I hadn't recently lived with some friends who were huge fans of both series. I could never get into Buffy, but I did like Angel, and was more than a little perturbed to find out the series ended abruptly with no real resolution at all.
Fans who have been waiting for creator Joss Whedon to wrap things up may finally have their wish. No, the show isn't coming back, but a comic book series co-written by Whedon and set within the Buffyverse canon are on their way, according to the man himself.
Also, fans of the "Smile Time" episode from season five (written and directed by Tick creator and occasional Venture Bros. contributor Ben Edlund) can look forward to a comic book sequel featuring Spike. Edlund is not involved with the comic book, however.
