    Hello people!
    One year ago I posted a tread about owning all of the season 6 of Angel.
    I still do not know what I have to buy to have the complete collection!! :(
    I own the 4 After the fall volumes.
    What volumes do I still need (all of them XD )
    How about season 7?
    Thanks people!!!

    If you go by season, than After the Fall is s6. Not sure how the volumes are separated for those though, if you have all the volumes, I assume that you have the whole "s6". AtF officially had 17 numbers I think, and then there are 5 numbers after that that serve as the aftermath of AtF. And then there's a one shot epilogue, and a bunch of other one shots/mini-series. Overall I think the "season" has over 40 numbers, but I'm not really sure, I've only read AtF and nothing beyond. There's also a few other canon stories that were published along with it. Someone else can probably help you out more, or I'm sure you could find the full list on wikipedia.

    As for s7, there isn't one. But there is Angel and Faith, which coincide with BtVS s9 and s10.

    I'm actually hoping to get After the Fall soon myself. Am I right in thinking that After the Fall has a perfectly satisfying ending, so if you don't want to read Aftermath, that's fine?

    I've only read AtF and was very satisfied. Maybe that's just be, but I think it's a well contained story. Actually, AtF is my favorite comic series that I've ever read, it was great. I can't comment on Aftermath or anything after because I didn't read it, but I think someone can only read AtF and be fine with that.

    Aftermath is awful! Do not read it! The greatest IDW comics are written by Brian Lynch and illustrated by Franco Urru (After the Fall, Spike: Asylum, Spike: Shadow Puppets, Spike: The Complete Series, Angel: Last Angel In Hell). If you're collecting every IDW comic that takes place after Not Fade Away, then this is the order:
    1. Angel: After the Fall Volume 1-2 (both are great and are official cannon)
    2. Spike: After the Fall (really good and cannon)
    3. Angel: After the Fall Volume 3-4 (awesome, cannon)
    4. Angel: Aftermath (worst piece of crap I've ever read, not cannon, doesn't even affect the rest of the IDW series)
    5. Angel: Last Angel in Hell (not much happens (you can skip it), but it's really funny and entertaining and has phenomenal art (I recommend it), not official cannon but could potentially be)
    6. Angel: Only Human (haven't read it yet, not cannon)
    7. Immortality for Dummies (decent, important for main IDW story, not cannon)
    8. Spike: The Devil You Know (mediocre, not cannon)
    9. Angel: The Crown Prince Syndrome (mediocre, not cannon)
    10. Illyria: Haunted (haven't read, not cannon)
    11. Angel: The Wolf, the Ram, and the Heart (pretty good, not cannon)
    12. Spike: The Complete Series (epic, official cannon, connects After the Fall to Buffy Season 8)

    There is also a Lorne one-shot that you might want to check out.
     
    VisionBoy: Thanks, this is very helpful :) Yeah, I've heard so many bad things about Aftermath across the board, I'll be avoiding it like the plague.
