Dan Panosian brings the light with his “Angel" #3 cover
The Angel train just keeps on rolling with a first look at Dan Panosian’s cover for issue 3. The issue itself has an interesting premise, with Angel trapped inside a hospital where he needs to free an innocent human from the influence of a monstrous creature. Panosian’s cover is appropriately creepy, with a fist surrounded with some sort of energy while clutching a crucifix, which is likely being used to ward off a woman whose body has been contorted into some unnatural pose. Spooky stuff.
Check out the cover and the details below.

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 20, 2019) – BOOM! Studios in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products today revealed the cover of the latest issue of the highly praised reimagining of the brooding vampire - ANGEL #3 by all-star creative team of acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (Batman, American Carnage) and 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 July 31, 2019.
Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark…including himself. Now, looking for redemption for the atrocities committed by the monster he was when he was first turned at the age of 18, Angel stumbles upon a new demon uprising and a shocking truth: The restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he’s never met…but may now be his greatest enemy.
Darkness has possessed another innocent...and Angel has no choice but to fight them. Trapped in an empty hospital with nowhere to go, Angel needs to find a way to save the host from this deadly and elusive demon, or have yet another life on his conscience. Will his new ally Fred be able to help him...or is she the reason he's battling this monster in the first place?
ANGEL #3 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots) and a variant cover by Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
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.
Angel #3 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on July 31.
