Angel fans who wish they could get their hands on rare or out-of-print comics from the series are in luck. BOOM! Studios has partnered with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to release a series of graphic novels collecting all of these stories that officially expand the world of Joss Whedon’s television series of the same name. Angel: Legacy Edition Book One will hit stores in October to kick off the collection.
According to the release, BOOM! will collect every issue of Angel from previous publishers in chronological order via this value-priced, Legacy Edition format.
“Angel is one of the most beloved television series of the last 20 years and has an incredible comic book legacy that we’re excited to honor with these collections,” said Jeanine Schaefer, BOOM! Studios executive editor, in a statement. “Even if you’re a long time fan of the broody vampire-with-a-soul like me, you’re going to find that each volume of Angel: Legacy Edition contains a story you might never have read – or been able to track down.”
The first volume will feature work by Emmy Award-winning writer David Fury, New York Times best-selling author Christopher Golden, five-time Eisner Award-winning artist Eric Powell and more. It also features an all-new cover by Nimit Malavia (Firefly: Legacy Edition). Check out the cover below.
