The creative team of David Tischman and Mariah Huehner over at IDW Publishing recently sat down to speak to Comic Book Resources about the 39th issue of “ANGEL” that will begin the final 6 issue arc in the series’ run with the publisher before it is moved back to Dark Horse Comics. Not only did the team reveal some interesting details about the arc entitled “THE WOLF, THE RAM, AND THE HEART”, but they also revealed a preview of the first issue which can be found beyond the break. Read on for the skinny!

Here’s An Excerpt From The Interview That Can be Read Over At Comic Book Resources…

“Wolfram & Hart, the law firm run by demonic senior partners that has plagued Angel since his first season on television (and who ultimately sent Los Angeles to Hell during the series’ initial story arc “After the Fall”), return for Tischman and Huehner’s arc, which will close out the vampire hero’s adventures at IDW. “Wolfram & Hart are really the quintessential opposite to Angel. They’re the embodiment of everything that he’s trying to fight and everything that tempts him to be something other than a hero,” Huehner said. “Other than himself, I think W&H are Angel’s most consistent nemeses and you need them to really have an epic ending. As was proven, I think, by both Season 5 and ‘After the Fall.’”

Tischman agreed, noting that Wolfram & Hart were integral part of “Angel’s” run on television. “Look, the reason people read the ‘Angel’ comic books, the reason they love these characters – it’s all because of the ‘Angel’ TV show, which ran over 100 episodes over 5 seasons. When they pick up the comic book, that’s the experience they want to have recreated for them. Forget that this our last arc for a minute,” Tischman said. “Our primary goal with these issues is to tell a great new, original story that recreates that TV experience. To have the characters sound authentic, like you’re hearing the actors who played them in your head. In a new adventure. To have the conflicts and moral dilemmas Angel’s facing stay true to the character, as he was originally created. Wolfram & Hart has always been a big part of all of that.”
