The Angel Yearbook: Look ma, I'm a Demon!

The final Angel comic from IDW Publishing hits stands today - the Angel Yearbook.  Because the series deserves to end with a loud bang, the yearbook collects stories about various characters by the creators that love them. Writer Scott Tipton and artist Elena Casagrande - the pair responsible for the Illyria: Haunted series that I loved - chose to craft a Fred and Wesley story.  My favorite characters.  Their story is titled "All the Time in the World."  And guess who makes an appearance in the story?

Ratcliffe demons.

Yep, those pesky and ugly Ratcliffe demons.  You can spot them on the left middle of the above panel.  It might seem like a small thing, but for my name to be attached in any way to the Angelverse is just about the coolest thing in the history of ever.  The fact that it's in a story about my two favorite characters is the sweetest kind of icing.  I am so dance-in-my-chair happy about this.  A big thank you to Mr. Tipton for letting me be part of Angel's last IDW huzzah.  I am flattered and overjoyed.

Read Tipton's thoughtful retrospective on his time writing in the Angel universe.  You've probably read some of his stories.  Say good-bye properly and buy the Angel Yearbook at your local comic book store today.  You won't regret it.


  1. Very cool! Seems like a big thing to me :) Congrats!

  2. I was so excited that I bought two copies so that I can rip the page from one and frame it. :)
