Following an encounter with a figure from his past, Angel must now face a horror that he had thought long destroyed. The monster, however, could hold the key to Angel’s salvation… or his destruction!

Organizations and Titles



Weapons and Objects

Death Count

  • Two unidentified vampires, killed by the Hollower.
  • Unknown number of humans, bitten by various vampires (only in flashbacks).
  • Unknown number of vampires including Karl, killed by the Hollower (only in flashbacks).
  • An unidentified vampire, staked by Buffy Summers.

Behind the Scenes


  • Published even before the homonym television show, it’s considered the first Angel comic issue, although still a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic publication.
  • The photo cover includes a promotional picture for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season two.
  • Differently from other representations, at this point the comic issues had vampires also able to transform into green creatures with red eyes, pointy ears, a wide mouth, and long teeth. Although, this seems more like an artistic choice, not having direct consequence to the stories.
