    This may be old news to everyone, but it's the first I've seen of it.

    Angel: After the Fall was re-released on October last year under the new title "Angel: season six". Volume One apparently contains Angel AtF issues 1-12 and Spike AtF issues 1-4.
    No word yet of a volume 2 as far as I can see and I'm wondering if it'll stop after the next five issues or whether it will continue into "Aftermath" under the season 6 banner.



    Anyway, cool that it's getting a re-release. I guess with all the Buffyverse comics out there now, some people might not have realised that season 6 is basically what "After the Fall" was, so maybe it'll draw more people in.

    How strange. They already had the comics, hardcovers, paperbacks, premiere edition, slipcover and digital editions! Good if it gets to new people I guess.

    What's stupid about that is that, what, Angel goes from Season 6 to 9? lol
     
    Fuffy Baith: I always found that odd too

    I have always found the "season 9/10" label a bit weird. I mean I get that it's because it follows on from Buffy season 8 and that's the point Buffy is at, but if you're not following Buffy, just Angel and Faith, it seems a little odd. It's a bit like if the first season of Ats had been called "season 4". Huh?

    Plus I've always wondered if it perhaps puts a few people off, because I personally think it suggests that you need a lot more Buffy comic knowledge to understand the story than you actually do.

    Have not read AtF (or any of the comics really) but if it gets more people to read the comics then, it sounds like a good idea. Calling it season 6 only makes sense if they're going to fill in a season 7 and 8.

    "Angel and Faith" is a new title different to "Angel". It's part of the BtVS S9 and S10 as a sub-brand.

    Also, the original Angel Investigations were practically disbanded after "Season 6".

    Well I loved Angel After the Fall. I thought Lynch did a pretty good job making it feel like a natural continuation of the TV show. Weirdly enough far more convincingly then Whedon did with season 8 really.

    I preferred the Spike comics. Angel After the Fall didn't really feel all that connected to the tv show.
