As part of their Buffyverse super-mega-crossover event, Hellmouth, BOOM! Studios is forming an “all-new Team Spike” in Angel #6, according to a press release.
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 8, 2019) – BOOM! Studios is proud to continue The Road to San Diego, a ten-day spotlight on the most exciting comic book and graphic novel news in advance of Comic Con International in San Diego (July 17–21), with the announcement of ANGEL #6, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. Acclaimed filmmaker and writer Bryan Edward Hill (American Carnage, Batman & The Outsiders) 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) reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon as the world deals with the consequences of the open HELLMOUTH, available in stores October 2019.
With Angel trapped in Sunnydale, the rest of Angel’s newly formed team has their hands full dealing with the Hellmouth’s fallout in Los Angeles. Will this gang of supernatural crime-solvers be able to protect Los Angeles from the shockwaves of the Hellmouth’s opening… and from newly arrived vampire, Spike?
ANGEL #6 features a main cover by artist Dan Panosian (Slots, Batman: Arkham Knight), and a variant cover by horror illustrator Scott Buoncristiano (Harry Potter: Magical Film Projections, Dead Rabbit), as well as a connecting variant cover by artist Goñi Montes (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) that connects to HELLMOUTH #2 and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #9.
Angel #6 is hitting stores on October 23rd, and as can be expected from any super-mega-crossover event worth its salt, the press release claims the events of Hellmouth will be “shocking.” The issue will also feature multiple variant covers, which is not shocking, and you can see them below.
