(SPOILER) IDW's Angel finale "The Wolf, the Ram, and the Heart". David Tischman and Mariah Huehner tell Comic Book Resources what the last six issues of Angel will be like.

Great interview.I'm really looking forward to what IDW has coming up.Love the preview page.
Definitely digging it. I'm really anxious to get to this finale!
That preview page is absolutely beautiful.
It is, isn't it?

I think I might buy the final arc. They've made it sound damn interesting.
I stopped reading the Angel comics a while ago, but I think I might pick them up again. That preview page does look good.
I think, with these two, the ANGEL book is in the best hands it's ever been. I cannot wait to read it. And that page? BEAUTIFUL!
Sounds like the book is finally on the right track again. (Sorry, I just didn't like the Armstrong and Willingham runs.) But this sounds awesome! Count me in! I especially like the fact that they really get why W&H was always the perfect villain for Angel. Because they didn't just try to do evil in spite of him, they tried to make him give into evil himself. That's what made season 2 so amazing.

I agree. Holland was very creepy and manipulative, Lindsey was a wonderful foil for Angel, and Lilah was just plain awesome. In her own way, I think she was as strong (if not stronger) a character as Buffy was.
Don't really know if I want to see W&H again...I was content with their ending in After the Fall.

That being said, I'm waiting for the DH series to read Angel again.
So very excited for this.

Also, Englishy quibble about the title. Punctuation should be inside the quotation marks, no?

I prefer logical punctuation .
*shrug*

Just trying to help. Putting my degree to use... bwahaha. :)
patxshand-No. It's a title, not the end of a logical and complete thought or a direct quotation. The full stop should always be placed after the quotation marks of titles.
menomegirl: No. Periods and commas go inside the quotation marks with titles as well.

Maybe it's American vs. British? Don't know, but I was taught that punctuation goes inside the quotations marks, and the interwebs (aside from Wikipedia's Style Thinger) backs that up.

It is partly an American vs. British thing. However, the origin of that habit of putting the punctuation inside the quotations even when it isn't part of the quote came from typewriter functionality, not logic. Now that there's no danger of destroying the period and comma keys by using the quotation marks first, I prefer to put them in logical order. If the punctuation isn't part of the quote, it stays outside the quotation marks.
Huh, never heard of that. Was taught otherwise, have never seen puncuation outside of quotes (title or not) in a novel, and the style guides that don't say punctuation (excluding question marks) go inside the quotation marks chalk it up to the American vs. British thing. Guess both ways are right, but my OCD went off when I saw it.

Either way, can't wait for this comic. It's been amazing since Mariah and David took over with #36, and I'm sure it's gonna get better and better.
If the punctuation isn't part of the quote, it stays outside the quotation marks.

And if it is, goes inside, as the comas after "Wolf" and "Ram".
However, I'm terrible Sytatics, even in my own language.
Also, if anyone wants a laugh, take a look at the comments on the link. Someone said that Willingham is the best writer that BtVS or ANGEL has had. Bwahahah.

Aside from the Willingham stuff, IDW's ANGEL has been fantastic. Amazing stuff throughout, and more amazing stuff to come. Can't wait! :D
Actually, um ... the "Heart" in the title of this thread is misspelled. It's correctly spelled 'Hart'.

I hope IDW knows that.

:)

They've spelled it as "Heart" in every press release and interview they've done when referencing the title, but "Hart" when referencing the company. IDW certainly knows that the "Hart" in Wolfram & Hart is spelled H-A-R-T. They're using "Heart" as a play on words.
Come November (or maybe later, as it probably wouldn't be revealed that early in the arc), we'll know :)

Though, seeing who Wolfram & Hart really are and what they mean to Angel (and really, the 'verse as a whole), I have some theories.
I've got a theory
That it's a demon
A dancing demon
No, they've already done that.....
Ahem.

Sorry. I was in the moment.

I nearly did a spit take when i read that.
The preview page looks great. They should keep it in black and white!
