The first issue of my final arc on Angel landed in stores last week, and by all accounts seems to have been well-received by just about everybody, which is lovely news. I really enjoyed working on the 'Boys And Their Toys' storyline with Brian, and I think issue 27 is even better than 26. It's the high-concept that sells these books for me, and Brian is the man in that regard. His ideas manage to be original and fantastically witty while at the same time they make you think 'why the hell didn't I think of that?'
Issue 26 leads into part 2 in issue 27 next month, and then in December the whole thing is wrapped up in the nigh-50 page beast that is the first Angel annual, 'Last Angel in Hell'. Myself, Brian and Chris are VERY proud of this one, and wait'll you see the colours on it by fellow Irishman Len O'Grady.
I GAURANTEE that the annual will be one of the best comics of all time, DESPITE the fact that I drew it. The script is that good.
