"We just got the pre-orders for our first Angel comic and its IDW's best-selling comic of all time." IDW president Ted Adams discusses '30 Days of Night' and other successes for the comic publisher.

...Wow. Quite the accomplishment!
Just down to us to actually buy it now ;).

Congrats to IDW, you kept the flame, you deserve a bit of a reward I reckon.
I've definitely warned my local comic book store owner: I will not just want to buy every issue, I also want every cover! I'm very excited about this new series, and I hope it runs forever.
Cool, I'll raise my order estimates for the first issue to above 30k then.
This is wonderful news !
Fan-frakkin'-tastic! The Whedonverse keeps on ruling. I love it.
Ignore this post.

Well IDW's first Transformers comic sold 45,468 copies according to ICv2 so it's got to at least be higher than that.
This is great news! I'm glad people are taking notice!
Oh, I'll buy it, Simon, I'll definitely buy it!

I can't wait!!!
Woo Hoo, wonderful news! Go IDW!! Go team Angel!! :)
Congratulations to Brian and Joss!!! :) And way to go Angel fans :)!!!
Well I hope this info translates to being actually able to find them.
I had such a hard time finding Spike Asylum and Shadow Puppets. I would end up going to several shops and then sometimes ended up having to buy online, or special ordering.Very frustrating. And I live in LA, a rather large market I would say.
Xane, have you tried Meltdown?
All I can say is: Pre-ordering is your friend.
And ebay is your friend's slutty sister. You know it's there if you're desperate, but do you really want the hassle and the loss of your self respect?

Whoops, what are we taking about again? Oh, comics.

Xane- I went to Golden Apple on Melrose during my last trip to LA and had to be dragged away kicking and screaming. (Mind you, that happens to me with MOST shops. Even supermarkets.)
Amazon's market place had the Buffy season 8 comic books for sale so I would imagine some one there will be selling After The Fall.
It is good to tell your local comic book store owner ahead of time that you'll be wanting them, and make sure he pre-orders them. Of course my fall back position is always to turn to midtowncomics.com who are happy to ship.
What is this meltdown?

I pre-ordered and pre-paid for Spike Asylum from my local shop, Brave New World, and it still didn't come in for weeks after it was out.

Honestly, I just can't wait that long, I'm gonna want it the day it comes out!

That's why ebay and Amazon are no good either.

Even Things from Another World at City Walk don't seem to carry them. What is wrong with them?

Whereabouts in Golden Apple on Melrose? Sounds fun.

And this?

Was funny.
