BOOM! Studios' "Angel" #1 returns from the grave (of selling out) with a second printing
I mean, is it really that surprising that Angel #1 has gone back for a second printing? I posit that it is not, considering all it has going for it: the element of surprise, a beloved property, and a dynamite creative team.
Still, we love hearing about it when books go back to press, and it’s not any different with BOOM! Studios’ newest darling. Check out the details below, along with the second printing’s cover from Mondo artist Boris Pelcer.
SOUL-ED OUT! ANGEL #1 Returns With Second Printing From BOOM! Studios
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 10, 2019) – BOOM! Studios announced today that ANGEL #1, reimagining the cult hit phenomenon from the very beginning in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, has sold out! To meet this overwhelming demand, ANGEL #1 SECOND PRINTING will arrive in stores on July 10, 2019 with a stunning variant cover by Mondo illustrator Boris Pelcer.
Acclaimed comic book and television writer Bryan Edward Hill (American Carnage, Titans) and artist Gleb Melnikov, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Firefly, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more), sends Angel to Sunnydale for the first time on a mission that’ll eventually put him face-to-face with the Slayer and change the fate of the entire world.
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 #1 second printing will hit comic shops on July 10.
