(SPOILER) Review/recap of Bill Willingham's Angel #28. The Fables writer's Angelverse debut comes out this week. In related news, there's also interviews with Bill Williams (who writes the backup Angel strip) at League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen and Buffyfest.

Looking forward to Angel #28 this week.I still don't buy the gang thinking Angel would just run off with some girl and without telling anybody either and thinking that was in
character for Angel.I still think that's OOC all around.

The podcast is really worth a listen.I just finished it.They cover everything.They
discuss Buffy,Angel,Firefly,Dr.Horrible,Dollhouse and the comics.

And Bill William's comments are very interesting.It seems he might also be writing a Spike miniseries later in 2010.He talks about the issues between IDW and Dark Horse and the use of Buffy characters in Angel and vice versa.

He also confirms that the Angel comics do basically tie-in to season 8 via dealing with the vampires being known to the world and popular.

The William's interview at Buffyfest is also good.The Eddie Hope backups sound interesting.
I'm wondering if Eddie Hope is actually Angel. For some reason this is triggering memories of John Wagner's The Dead Man saga which ran in 2000 A.D. about 20 years ago. We found out at the end that The Dead Man was actually Judge Dredd, it made quite the impression on me at the time.
Simon, without having been given the slightest hint or trace of a hint in the ads/promos that it was going to be a Judge Dredd story ? That's pretty cool. Reminds me of when I was reading one of Neil Gaiman's short stories and, gradually, you came to realize it was a twist on Snow White.

If Angel is Eddie Hope...how many names would that make now ? Liam, Angelus, Angel...any other aliases and rebirth names I've forgotten ?

Yes though it was clear that it was set in Judge Dredd's universe. There's a good writeup about it at Wikipedia.
