As the day winds down, let’s end it with a nice early look at Angel #3, shall we? There are some spooky covers, and the dynamic interiors from Gleb Melnikov are pretty exciting. Is that a water balloon filled with holy water that Angel is using to fell a foe? Check out the preview below and decide for yourself. I’m leaning toward yes.

Your First Look at Joss Whedon’s ANGEL #3 From BOOM! Studios

The Vampire with a Soul Reimagined in Thrilling and Historic New Comic Book Series in July 2019

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 27, 2019) – BOOM! Studios in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products today revealed a first look at the latest issue of the highly praised reimagining of the brooding vampire—ANGEL #3 by acclaimed writer Bryan Edward Hill (Batman, American Carnage) and artist 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 shocking truth: one of the last vampires he sired is looking for a way to open a portal to a Hell dimension and the only person who can stop it is 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. Tracking this evil to a psychiatric hospital, Angel must find a way to save the host of this deadly and elusive demon, or risk having yet another life on his conscience. Then, after rescuing one of the hospital’s patients, Fred Burkle, Angel may just have a new ally. But will she 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 variant covers by Scott Buoncristiano (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Ben Caldwell (Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles).

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.
