Everyone's favorite brooding vampire is getting his own series from BOOM! Studios. The publisher dropped a surprise Angel #0 last week and has revealed details for the official first issue, debuting in May, written by Bryan Hill and illustrated with Gleb Melnikov.

Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark in an attempt to redeem himself for the crimes committed by the monster he was when he was first turned. But now, when the trail of the most recent demonic uprising takes him to Sunnydale, he realizes that the restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he’s never met…but may now be his greatest enemy. The brooding, dark vampire with a soul has just left the city of lights after marking another death on the never-ending list of debts he owes against his soul. Is he ready for one last sacrifice if it brings his long sought after peace?

“We got our first taste of Angel in yesterday’s game-changing Buffy #4 and surprise release of Angel #0, but that’s only the start of the newly reimagined vampire’s story in this modern Buffyverse.” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The questions weighing on Angel -- the possibility of redemption, whether or not we own our own mistakes, and how we weigh the value of the lives around us versus our own -- remain extremely relevant today.  Bryan and Gleb are tackling that head on, set against the centuries long backdrop of the horrors Angel has seen and committed, revealing aspects of Angel’s history that are sure to shock longtime fans.”

Angel #1 features a main cover by Dan Panosian and a monster-themed variant cover by Scott Buoncristiano depicting the Der Kindestod from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 episode “Killed by Death.” Look for Angel #1 at your local comic shop on May 29th, 2019.
