Here's a short comic that I wrote, Angel: Last Night, that ties into my favorite comic series of all time, Angel: After the Fall. It takes place during #16, between the moments of Angel's death and W&H returning Los Angeles to normal.
Now, I'm re-posting this because of how awesome the reaction has been. I want to write for IDW's ANGEL series more than anything else, and... well, look at the reactions from www.slayalive.com alone
THE GIRL IN QUESTION: "
Much, much more ANGEL stuff to come in the future.
NOTE TO NON-ANGEL FANS
Now, non-Angel fans. I bet you're sorta scratching your heads. Well, stop. You're getting head particles all over my blog. I'll give you a bit of a summary of what happened before, so you can understand all of this.
Also, c'mon, watch the fucking show. It's brilliant.
Angel is a vampire with a soul. He fights evil with a group of friends, some of whom (Doyle, Cordelia, and Fred, for example) have died in the never ending battle. We on the same page?
Now, a prophecy was made that Angel would play a pivotal role in the apocalypse and, for his efforts, be rewarded with humanity.
On the sucky-for-him side, a demonic organization, Wolfram & Hart, has made it their mission statement to make life Hell for Angel. When Angel rebels against them, they decided to get literal and send Angel, his friends, and, yes, his entire city (LA) to Hell. They turn Angel into a human so that he can't save his friends. One of his friends, Gunn, gets turned into a vampire.
Now, that is when Angel: After the Fall starts. It's revealed that the aforementioned prophecy really means that Angel will play a role for EVIL in the apocalypse, and that Wolfram & Hart, despite their actions, want to at least keep him alive for this. Angel realizes that the only way to set things back, to get out of Hell, is to die. That way, Wolfram & Hart will have to send them to the last moment they were in reality... before Hell. This takes place between his death and the return.
