    Why would this effect TF comics? I didn't even know there were Buffy/Angel books at IDW. Guess I always thought those were some other companie's books.

    I think what he's implying is that Whedon's move will cause people to abandon IDW in droves. I don't think so, since that hasn't really been the case with big names like Grant Morrison & Geoff Johns going to DC--Marvel still outsells them basically 2-to-1.

    Josh must be planning to crossover characters again and requires that both comics belong to the same company to do it. Not really much of a big deal anyway, the Buffy comics always were handled by Dark Horse since the days when Season One was first on the air... Or roundabouts.

    But now that Josh has an idea for some kind of Buffy meets Angel storyline or something then the character must abandon IDW and return to the fold of the Midnight Black Stallion.

    Yeah this really sucks. It was announced a couple months back, and it's unfortunate as IDW Angel as been an AMAZING book. The first 4 arcs are superb, then the "Aftermath" was a let down, but it picked right back up.

    Dark Horse never handled the Angel brand very well and Brian Lynch captures Angel and Spike better than Joss at this point. The only brightside is that Jane Espenson has a chance to write some Angelcentric stories now.

    Under the name Josh Whedon? That explains everything.

    They already announced spike is going until at least issue 8, and right now it's still up in the air if they're be able to still publish Spike content.

    Actually Angel's been in the Buffy comics a whole lot recently, and Spike just started getting a major part in the story too. Also one of the Angel comics even references the Twilight plotline from Buffy with Spike rounding up a bunch of out-of-work writers to script a bunch of prophecies with him as the hero and Angel as the villain "with some lame ass name like Dawnfall or The Dusk".

    Just because the series are licensed to different companies has not stopped them referencing each other any more than having the two shows on different networks stopped Angel making the odd cameo on Buffy or Spike jumping from one series to the other.

    The only thing that this might allow is an honest to goodness crossover using both books, but honestly, I don't think that would work for either series. Does that sort of thing ever work?
