Starting in July, Angel’s status quo gets rocked! IDW is pleased to announce that Angel: After the Fall writer Brian Lynch will be back with the Angel series, bringing with him some familiar faces. First up, in Angel #23, the Angel: After the Fall/Spike: After the Fall team of Lynch and artist Franco Urru reunite to explore the fate of Gunn.

Then, Angel #24 and #25 feature the long-awaited return of Drusilla to the Angel universe. To make her return even more dramatic, “Drusilla” herself, actress Juliet Landau, is plotting and co-scripting this two-part story.
“We are very excited to have Brian back on Angel, and the stories he’s telling here really set the tone for what’s to come,” said IDW Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. “Not only do we see Gunn dealing with the repercussions of his actions in After the Fall, but we also finally get to check in on the intriguing and very insane Drusilla. And having Juliet Landau craft Drusilla’s story in such a clever way is an even bigger bonus for fans, since she has a true understanding of the character and what motivates her.”
When fans last saw Gunn, his return from Hell left him comatose with only Illyria to look over him. Angel #23 explores what happens next, plus brings back a renowned character as the villain of the issue in an unexpected twist. Landau and Lynch will co-script Angel #24 and #25, with Urru once again handling art and cover chores. British artist Sam Shearon will also provide a cover for the issue. Making this two-issue event a must-have for fans, a new pictorial of Landau will be included as a back-up feature in the issue. 
“I am loving co-writing these issues with Brian. Tapping into Dru again has been incredibly creative and fun! The process has been fluid and I am excited by the work that we are doing!” says Landau.
“There is a lot going on with Angel starting in July,” said Ryall. “And of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that all of this just sets us up for even bigger things to come. But we’ll have more on that later, like maybe at Comic-Con. . .”
Angel #23 will be available in stores in July.
Angel #24 will be available in stores in August.
Angel #25 will be available in stores in September.
