Format: Hardcover
The story running through issues #1-5 of IDW's comic-book continuation of Joss Whedon's TV-series `Angel' is collected as Angel: After The Fall Volume 1 HC: After the Fall v. 1 (Angel (IDW Hardcover)). This takes place some time after the end of the TV series, and Los Angeles has been shifted into a `Hell' dimension, and is now overrun by demons and suchlike. Angel is still fighting the good fight, and as the story progresses, we discover the fate of the other characters, as well as Angels own... This is a continuing story, so there is a rather abrupt cliff-hanger at the end of issue #5, after Angel has challenged the demon warlords who rule the districts of Los Angeles to fight for control of the city, and various friends turn up to support him.

This is a good continuation of the TV story - and is approved and overseen by Joss Whedon, so it ought to be - but I was never happy with the direction of the original show, as it got gloomier and gloomier season by season. However, I am sticking with it, and I am off to the library tomorrow for the subsequent volumes of this series.

The artwork is excellent, and the individual characters mostly look like their TV counterparts most of the time. The scripting is good, but Angel's own voice doesn't `sound' quite right, though it is a long time since I watched the TV show, so it might be me.

Here it is at last - the official Season 6 of Angel! It's not the TV series - that got cancelled before its time at the end of Season 5 - but yes it is the official continuation of Angel as scripted by Joss Whedon. It's not a film or a novel either - it's actually a full colour graphic novel released across several high quality hardbound volumes.

There have been Angel (and Spike) comics before - so what makes this "official"? It's something called "canon", which means that the events described are from the vision of the original creator, whereas so many TV series get franchised to authors who write their own stories and put their own spin on it, regardless of continuity. The events in After The Fall are exactly how Joss Whedon would have continued with the TV series had it not been cancelled. The downside is of course that the actors aren't part of it, but the upside is that the graphics budget is unlimited! And the artists are amazingly talented - you have to see it to believe it.

There is more info on Wikipedia, but what you don't get told on Wikipedia or Amazon is how many of the first run comics are in each volume of the hardback, so here goes:

Volume 1: Issues 1 to 5 of the main storyline first run comics. The story begins a couple of months after the fight in the alleyway. It works far better this way.

Volume 2: Issues 6 to 8 of the first run comics, making up a sub-arc called First Night. These tell the story of each character individually on their first night after Los Angeles is sent into Hell. Don't read this volume first, as it will spoil your enjoyment of the revelations in Volume 1.

Volume 3: Issues 9 to 13 of the main storyline first run comics.

after buying this i read through it twice and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times as well as interesting plot twists for the storyline to have the universe made even more less clear than it ever was... (There are minor suprises at the end of Chapter 1, 3 but the huge plot twist comes at the end of the 5th part of 'After the Fall'.)
if this was the idea for Angels final season then fox are idiots for cancelling the series when they did as this would've made a great TV Season...

Can't wait for Angel: After the Fall - Volume 2: First Night

having watched the angel series (as buffy spin off) i assumed the last episode was a 'Blakes Seven' while saving on the makeup/ cgi to actually show it. many years later spotting this was a great surprise, so i just had to see what they decided would have happened. Setting the scene some months after the alley way initially seemed odd, but gave me all the information to then wonder How they had reach this situation. I found the comic book (graphic novel) format odd on a kindle but i expect i could get used to it. It does however, mean you only get the bare bones of a story, which was always so well enhanced by the interaction of the characters on screen. The art work is very good, but i like my characters animate (cant say alive in this context) or completely in my imagination, as in a novel. I wonder why they axed the series? the dvd sales alone would probably have paid for it - were the actors bored?
