"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, Reagan's presidential campaign manager & CIA Director (from first staff meeting in 1981)
Quote:Outside of the TV series, Angel has been officially expanded and elaborated on by authors and artists in the so-called "Buffyverse Expanded Universe". The creators of these works may or may not keep to established continuity. Similarly, writers for the TV series were under no obligation to use information which had been established by the Expanded Universe, and sometimes contradicted such continuity.
Many of these works are set at particular times within the Buffyverse. For example, Joss Whedon has written an Angel mini-series of comics, Long Night's Journey, which was specifically set in early Angel Season Two. Angel comics were originally published by Dark Horse Comics, which published them from 2000 until 2002. IDW Publishing obtained rights to publish Angel comics in 2005 and has been releasing them since. Most recent releases include Spike vs. Dracula, Asylum, and Auld Lang Syne. Spinning off of the Angel comics comes an entire series of Spike comics, using the Angel logo's typeface in its depiction of the name "Spike", among these are the comics Spike vs. Dracula, Spike: Asylum and Spike: Shadow Puppets. As of November 2007, the story is being continued in a canonical Season Six originally planned to be a 12-issue comic mini-series, titled Angel: After the Fall. The series is written by Brian Lynch (Spike: Asylum) and is plotted by both Lynch and Joss Whedon.
Following their success with a series of Buffy novels, Pocket Books purchased the license to produce novels for Angel. Twenty-four Angel novels were published. Jeff Mariotte became the most successful Angel novelist, publishing eleven Angel novels. They also published seven Buffy/Angel crossover books that featured settings and characters from both series.

Thanks for the info! I suppose I'll give After the Fall a look-see.
As for the finale, I really enjoyed it. Part of me will always wish that Fred could have been back for it, but what happened between Illyria and Wesley was pretty interesting anyway.
I guess all in all I was as satisfied as I could be with a finale for a show that could (should) have continued.
Keep on flyin'

Y'know, Buffy's finale is high on my list of best finales ever, too. And it's completely different. I just love that last shot, the wisp of a smile on Buffy's face, the realization that she finally gets to be a REAL girl for once, all the Slayer duties are behind her, etc.

Not sure if the comics are considered spoilers or not so:
Select to view spoiler:While I generally like the season 8 Buffy comics, it annoys me that it sorta voided the Buffy finale. She didn't get to take a break at all. If anything she's more dedicated to being just a slayer. It almost makes the stories a tragedy.
