Went to the Book Expo today. Signed a hundred or so Director's Cuts, met a lot of great people, really really fun. There were big ads on all the doors for ANGEL:ATF, FIRST NIGHT and SPIKE:ATF. I will post pictures when I'm not so tired.
Also got my hands on the ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL hardcover. Again, tomorrow, I'll post pictures...
...but it is stunning. Just amazing. Hardcover, embossed cover, first five issues (all reprinted beautifully, it looks like a whole new book), amazing chapter pages (really gothic and classic), my intro, the script to issue 1 with my notes, all the covers ever (including the wedding cover!) Franco's original sketches for all the leads, a sweet cloth bookmark attached in the book, PLUS the original series proposal. Man is it in-depth. I think I'm leaving something out. Many pictures later in the weekend.
This book is THICK. It's a long, long read. Jam-packed with stuff. IDW has outdone themselves. It's not just the first five issues, it's loaded with every piece of info you'd want to know about the book. I couldn't believe it. What a classy, cool production.
