I believe in Brian Lynch. The series has been a joke since ATF ended.

Mike. Have you read "Music of the Spheres," the "Last Angel in Hell" collection, any of Byrne's stuff, "Barbary Coast", "Spike: The Devil You Know," or #36? There have been issues, but it's certainly not a joke. I love it. And David Tischman and Mariah took over the title with this week's issue, which is the best comic we've seen since ATF ended.

IDW should have Angel. They deserve it. End of story.

I think ATF was a joke. I love the current Angel. It feel more like the series.

So how long do we have to let IDW have the license, to prove that they deserve it? After the Fall was truly great and epic story writing and it FELT like Angel. It was like watching it on television, all over again. Everything since then has felt like one big masturbatory slash-fic written by a fan who didn't watch the show, and didn't understand what s/he DID see. I hold out hope, and keep buying comics, because I'm delusional.

If the DH acquisition puts the whole shebang even remotely under the supervision of someone who knows the show, Joss or otherwise, then I'll be happy. And I'll treat most of the IDW run as my own After the Fall. "I dreamt my favorite comic went to hell. When I woke up, everything was back to normal, as if nothing had happened."

C'mon, IDW, make me regret it--at least at the end.

regardless of the issues people have had with IDW Angel, I have a feeling there may be more of those issues with DH. IDW pay great attention to heir Angel comics, gotta admit they are raising the bar high for DH.

oh and don't forget "Boys and Their Toys" was hilarious Pat!

I agree,Ryan. IDW lavished alot of time and attention on their Angel comics. I read today in a CBR Interview, that Scott and Joss are a little worried about how busy he is. Unless DH can come up with a series that is going to be superior to what IDW are currently doing with the Angel license, then there is no earthly point in them taking this all on. I can't understanding the thinking behind people saying "Well it's all going to be alot better with both titles with the same publishing company. That only works if they have the time to treat both comic lines equally. That's going to be hard, imho. What was wrong with leaving things as they are and doing crossovers. IDW would have been willing and they've got the writers for the job.
