I am very excited to show you some upcoming "shots" from ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL. Warning! Kinda spoilers!
First of all, the bad news: Nick Runge's last issue on interiors is issue 11. He is brilliant and awesome and I loved the issues we did together, but I think the monthly deadline was eating at his very soul, and he didn't want the book or the release dates to suffer, so for now, he's providing covers. AND a two-page sequence in issue 12 (a la Messina's pages in ANGEL:ATF # 10).
Now, the great news.
Stephen Mooney takes on the bulk of ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL # 12. A friendly reminder, Mooney is the genius who lent his genius to the Connor/Kate story in FIRST NIGHT. I am in love with his work from those issues, but I gotta say, his work on ATF is blowing it away. You won't believe your eyes, it's epic, painful, very personal stuff and Mooney is kicking ass on every page.
Here's an example of how great he is with the characters. First of all, Wesley makes sure he looks his best for HIS big reunion with Gunn.
Gunn ALSO wants to be ready, so he has all his pretty trinkets waxed and polished.
Spike, never one to be shown up, ALSO wants to look his best, so he fixes his hair:
All these dudes getting ready to meet up, but man, I wonder what happened to Angel? He's the star of our show, isn't he? I hope he's okay. Man, I'm getting worried.
Well, let's see a cover to issue 15 and see. Courtesy of my artistic soulmate and once and future ANGEL:AFTER THE FALL partner, Franco Urru!
Oh whew, there he is! I guess everything's okay for Angel...unless things aren't what they seem...but when has that ever been the case?
I cannot wait for you guys to see these issues. We've saved the best for the last (of AFTER THE FALL...not the world of ANGEL...but that's a story for another time).
Hope you like!
