ANGEL #3 First Look

Mysterious & Dangerous Black Snow, a First for Hollywood in ANGEL #3

Discover the Gruesome New Enemy of the Vampire With a Soul this March 2022

BOOM! Studios revealed a first look at ANGEL #3, from producer and director of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and Eisner Award-nominated writer Christopher Cantwell (Iron Man, The United States of Captain America), artist Daniel Bayliss (WWE The New Day: The Power of Positivity, Labyrinth: Coronation), colorist Patricio Delpeche (Origins), and letterer Becca Carey (Wonder Woman). In March 2022, shine the spotlight on everyone’s favorite vampire with a soul in the role of a lifetime . . . Detective Angel. 

The team can’t figure out what to make of Angel’s height, or the soul that dwells in the Spirit House. Even worse, an inky black snowfall starts to coat all of Southern California, along with a forecast of more deadly inclement weather, making the tormented parts of the human populace even more vulnerable. And worse still, a gruesome new enemy has other plans for the loose spirit… ones with terrible ramifications for humanity…

ANGEL #3 features main cover art by acclaimed illustrator Nimit Malavia (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and variant cover art by fan favorite artist Ethan Young (Space Bear). 

Angel premiered on the WB Network on October 5th, 1999 and was a spin-off from the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The series ran for five seasons from 1999-2004, and revolved around Angel, the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul who moved to LA to set up shop as a supernatural private investigator. Despite Angel’s best efforts to deal with the sins of his past all by himself, Angel Investigations soon became home to other lost souls searching for redemption and willing to fight by his side.
