but personally...the last time DH had angel, he and his supporting cast were nothing more than bit players in the Buffy show. I know they are technically joss' toys, but they always felt like the unwanted toys he left to others to play with (and they made something special out of it). no disrespect to joss, he is a great writer- ut to me hes always seemed like he sees angel as very much subserviant to buffy and second place.
I dont want to see all this wonderful work by idw and the staff of angel put to waste- the twighlight arc showed EXACTLY why I cant go back. It showed me that the things I loved about those characters will be gone when idw is.
so Im bowing out in style, with the best angel there has been and will , its safe to say I feel, ever be in the comic medium, that live sup to its live action version.

I like the addition of Faith as a co-star and that it's going to be a "magic mystery noir" type of story. Also, it looks like it will have nice art. So I'm getting tempted to buy it after all. I feel conflicted about this though, because I hate what DH did to Angel in S8 and I feel like they don't deserve to be "rewarded" for that by buying their Angel comic.
I am definitely going to buy the Buffy S9, because it sounds like they've learned from their mistakes in S8 and it will be much more relatable and down to earth -- and so, hopefully much better. Also, it's got Spike.
