(My) Last Angel


This wednesday sees the release of the first ever Angel Annual, a 50-page monster by myself and Brian Lynch. The script on this one is just so, so funny. Spot-on piss-take after piss-take of every action-movie cliche you can think of. All delivered with po-faced sincerity by our main man, Cangel. Boy, am I gonna miss drawing Brian's books.

It's kinda bitter-sweet this one, in that while it's almost certainly my finest hour on Angel, it's also very probably my last. So happy face, but then, inevitably, crushingly, sad face.

Please pick this badboy up, we're really rather proud of it. It's a beautiful print-job, with its own spine and everything. I also have to mention the gorgeous job that fellow Oirishman Len O'Grady did on the colours, so sweet.

So, this coming Wednesday, December 23rd.
Do it to it.
Much appreciated.

I'll order it as soon as I get my student loan this week. Seems like it could make me LOL for real ;D

Sad to see you go. I hope they bring you back, at least for a few covers for the Spike series (I always thought you drew Spike the best of all characters) or a comic adaptation. You and Nick Runge are the Angel artists that have been best able to capture the actors likeness, which I think is important for comic adaptations.

Aw, thanks Caroline, very much appreciated.
I hope I can stick my head in now and again too, maybe Brian and Franco will let me pitch in with a couple of Spike covers...
On the plus side, I'm working on something really cool right now that I hope folks will pick up once it hits.

I'm sad to hear that the annual will probably be your last Angel book. Can't wait to read it, I'm sure it will be amazing.
I'll wait for some news about your new project! :)

Merry Christmas!

Any chance that the new project is "One bad Mother"?
