We approved to print the ANGEL YEARBOOK this week. That's the final new Angel comic we'll do before the license reverts back to the wilds of Oregon.
So while I love the comic and am very proud to have new stories from Jeff Mariotte, Peter David, Scott Tipton and Brian Lynch, as well as a couple other folk new to writing for us but not new to Angel (and me, too, I end things with a final two-pager), it's also bittersweet. Hate to see it end.
And while I do thank all of you (well, not by name, that'd be silly, since many of you don't even use your real names here. After all, no one would really be called "Jean-Vic" in real life, right?) in the comic, I also want to add another note of thanks for all the patronage, support, passion, and opinions you've shared here and elsewhere over the past five years.
I hope you all stick around, both to check out other good IDW books and also to hang out here, and talk about whatever you want, too. This place won't be the same without you, and losing Angel and Spike is already more than I want to bear.
So you're all appreciated for what you've contributed, and you're all welcome to be here as long as you'd like. I'll be checking things here to see how the new comics are received, too, since I won't be reading them myself.
And I hope you like our final efforts with the characters, too. We'll still be doing reprints and deluxe re-packagings and so forth, but ANGEL YEARBOOK is the end for the IDW run.
Now I'm off to go eBay all my Dark Horse BUFFY comics.
