So, at long (long) last I have finally finished Angel. And of course, it's left me wanting more. I've been following the Buffy Season 8 comics since I finished watching Season 7, but is there an Angel version as well. I know *of* the 'After the Fall' series - is that what I should be looking into now? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks all.

Yeah I think the "After the Fall" series is the officially Joss sanctioned continuation in comic form. It's not highly recommended on my list really. I've only gotten a short ways into it but it's pretty far out there for me. I can't imagine they'd go this route they take it down if it was actually on the air. That's the one to go for I guess.

Maybe this will help, from the Wiki:

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.[51][52]

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.





By the way, how'd ya like the series finale?

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.

I'm always curious to see what reactions are once people have watched the whole series. For myself, I thought it was one of the great series finales in TV history. I loved every second of it. And I love that you get to have your own interpretation of the ending. How's that battle turn out? You have to decide for yourself! :)

Not a fan of the finale. Or of season five as a whole. However there are some cracking episodes.

One aspect of it that I REALLY enjoyed was how they didn't have the final battle all together. They each had their own individual assignments, so to watch how each person's mission turned out was a really cool way of progressing through the episode.

I loved the finale, and season 5 was by far my favorite of the whole series. Of Buffy and Angel combined, really.

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:

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.

Yup, that's the way Joss seems to work.
