Last week’s surprise Angel #0 by Bryan Edward Hill and Gleb Melnikov blew the barn doors off. Seen in the final panel of Buffy The Vampire Slayer #4 watching Xander Harris being turned into a vampire by Drusilla (um, spoilers), Angel #0 repeated those final pages before running through Angel’s life so far in this Buddy do-over. A vampire given his soul back as a curse and now trying to make amends.
The reimagining sees him living in Los Angeles long before meeting Buffy, torturing himself (literally) and training a proto-Slayer, Helen.
While also living with a clairvoyant sorceress called Fee-Fee.
And a Hulk reference that ties into what would happen to Angel if he acheives perfect happiness in his current state. Of coure this is NuBuffy, the rules could well have changed…
For those who missed the surprise Angel #0 last week, there’s a second print in comic book stores tomorrow…
