IDW releases solicitation info for Angel: Old Friends #2. It will be released in December and features 4 variant covers.


Written by Jeff Mariotte, art by David Messina, covers by Messina, Neil Yokes, Tone Rodriguez and Sean Phillips.

Upon learning that nothing is what he thinks it is, Angel finds his reunion with friends and allies is no cheerful affair. A rash of vampiric murders continues to rock L.A., and Angel feels drawn back into the city in spite of himself. But who can he trust in this strange new world? If he doesn't find out soon, it may be too late for everyone... this latest miniseries spinning out of Joss Whedon's fan-favorite TV show was once again written by Angel novelist and comics writer Jeff Mariotte with full art and colors once again provided by David Messina. Messina also provides the cover, as do variant cover artists Neil Vokes, Tone Rodriguez, and Sean Phillips.

32 pages, $3.99.

And here I was hoping Gunn would be armless and not eyeless, which is original of course.
Awww, look at the pretty Spangel. ;0)

I think I like most of those covers. The second one featuring Spike, the one on his own, looks strange though. I can't put my finger on it, just a little off for some reason.

Is this a one shot or a new series?
it's the second issue of the a mini-series

I think this solicitation told us even less than the first issue did...

I'm loving that Angel/Illyria cover though
The covers look pretty good. Spike must have shansued though, cause he's looking a wee bit old. (<-Joke. Sortof.)
I like the cover with Angel and Gunn the best. I am new to the comics world and have been recently been buying all the Serenity series, Angel The Curse, and the Spike oneshot. Out of all the comics so far my favorite artwork has been The Curse mini-series, so I'm very happy to see more will be coming.
The covers aren't bad I suppose, it's just a shame that nobody looks like their characters. The likeness's are way poor, which is a shame really.
