Nicole Sixx 08/27/2011 Reviews 2 Comments

Fantastic creator and great guy Christos Gage took the time to sit down with Dark Horse Comics and the rest of us on the fine twitterverse this Thursday. Here’s the must read archive of all the excellent scoopage unloaded upon us that fine day.

 

Below you will find Christos Gage in Bold, Dark Horse Comics in Bold/Italic, and myself in Regular Italic. Enjoy!!

@Christosgage

 ***

 

DarkHorseComics – Hey Buffy/Angel Fans! Thanks for joining us! Let’s Welcome @christosgage to our #angelnfaithchat Get those questions rolling!

_

DarkHorseComics – Thanks so much for taking the time to join us @christosgage! #angelnfaithchat

_
Christosgage – Okay, welcome to the #angelnfaithchat ! Never done this before so bear with me. I’ll retweet a question then answer it.
__

@BenJMorse –  @Christosgage Can I write an issue? Or be paid for an issue you write? Either/or. #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@BenJMorse is hereby banned from the #angelnfaith chat. (Ben works at Marvel and is an old buddy who roots for Faith’s favorite teams.)

_

Christosgage – Sorry for the delay. My computer wasn’t working with Twitter so I had to use my wife’s. I sense an expensive trip to the Apple store coming.

_

_

@YinLovesYang@Christosgage You have worked on many comics for several years. What NEW challenges have you had with Angel & Faith? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@YinLovesYang: The new challenge for Angel & Faith is living up to the high level of storytelling set by Joss & his writers!

_

@JordanBines@Christosgage Will the story stick around in London/UK or will it expand to other places? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@JordanBines: We will be mostly in London/the UK but there will be other locations as well.

_

@MoscowWatcher@Christosgage Could you describe the future A&F season in 5 words? #angelnfaithchat

_

_

@Buffyfanfiction@Christosgage Do you have any crumbs for a Wesley fan? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@Buffyfanfiction: I have some bad news about Wesley…he’s dead. ;) Sorry, though, no current Wesley plans from me. I like him though.

_

nicolesixx_@Buffyfanfiction @Christosgage #sniffle Poor Wesley, you will always be my favorite. #angelnfaithchat

_

@AltheaVestrit@Christosgage In what ways do you think Angel’s and Faith’s personalities and relationships changed from how they were in the show? Thanks.

_

Christosgage@AltheaVestrit: I think Faith has matured more than anyone else in the Buffyverse, even Xander. She’s the together one now…for now. As for Angel I think he has just gotten more guilt ridden and tortured and feels he is toxic, pushing people away.

_

adamreisinger@Christosgage how big a role will Giles play in the series? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adamreisinger: Very big. Giles is the 3rd most important character in the story. We open #1 with a flashback starring Giles.

_

_

Zamol_xis@Christosgage Any chance for flash-back stories either Fang Gang or Angel Investigations? (Angel is lost without Cordy) #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@Zamol_xis: Never say never but not right now. And I’m sorry but I don’t know who Fang Gang is? Angel & Spike?

_

PJMontgomery@Christosgage Will we see Faith vs Illyria at any point? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@PJMontgomer: No Faith vs. Illyria plans. For Illyria you want to stay tuned to Joss’ books. He called dibs quick! Guess he earned it. ;)

_

SlayAliveForum@Christosgage Any hints about the Big Bads of the season? I’m assuming that they’re the two on the #4 cover. #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@SlayAliveForum: The Big Bads on the cover you mention have a link to Twilight. No more hints though!

_

adculaba@Christosgage will we see some Buffy characters crossover to Angel/Faith? Or will the series be purely about Angel/Faith? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adculaba: There will be some crossover of characters between the books. Harmony & Clem are in Angel & Faith #5.

_

Alex_Jamieson@Christosgage Hello from London! Will we get clues to where Angel came from when he fell from the sky in Season 8? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@Alex_Jamieson: Um…I have no idea where Angel fell from in Season 8. Sorry. I’ll ask Joss when I get the chance. #angelnfaithchat

_

supephone@Christosgage # Since getting the job,have you waitched both Buffy and Angel and read season 8 and Angel :After The Fall?angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@supephone: I’ve watched all Buffy & Angel eps & read 1st 6 volumes of After The Fall. #angelnfaithchat

_

TheCharlesWebb@Christosgage Would you be interested in answering a few ANGEL AND FAITH questions for @MTVGeek? Please DM me if you’re interested. Thanks!

_

Christosgage@TheCharlesWebb: Sure. If I forget message me again after the #angelnfaithchat is over.

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage #AngelnFaithchat What’s the experience of writing for Angel and Faith been like so far?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: It’s been fun! Intimidating but wicked fun! And @rebekahisaacs is amazing. Star in the making. #angelnfaithchat

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage #Angelnfaithchat Are there any specific characters who aren’t going to be in A&F that you wish were?
_

 

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: Dead ones. Loved Merle. Would’ve been fun to write Spike. Dying to use Lorne but only if I can do a good job. #angelnfaithchat

_

missnutellaa@Christosgage will we see any kind of romantic relationship between angel and faith? x

_

Christosgage@missnutellaa: Some questions just get “stay tuned.” That is one. Not tipping the hat either way, think speculation is fun! #angelnfaithchat
_
DarkHorseComics – RT @christosgage: @missnutellaa: Some ?s get “stay tuned.” That is one. Not tipping the hat either way, speculation is fun! #angelnfaithchat

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage #Angelnfaithchat In the preview pages we’ve sort of been introduced to Nadira. Can you tell us anything about her?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: Nadira has a major trauma in her recent past and has been affected by it. Faith is trying to help. #angelnfaithchat

_

GreenDayAngel@Christosgage Which character’s head is the most fun for you to get inside? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@GreenDayAngel: Getting in Harmony’s head was super fun. It must be awesome to be the center of the universe! #angelnfaithchat

_

_

missnutellaa@Christosgage will Angelus be making an appearance? x

_

Christosgage@missnutellaa: Angelus is always a presence but letting him off the leash…only if I can find a new wrinkle on doing it. #angelnfaithchat_
_
Natalie5x5@Christosgage #Angelnfaithchat Robin Wood wont be making an appearance will he? :P
_
Christosgage@Natalie5x5: No plans for Robin Wood right now but you never know. I love his Mom. #angelnfaithchat
_
Natalie5x5@Christosgage #AngelnFaithchat The launch of Issue #1 is nearly here. How do you think the fans are going to react?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: I have no idea how fans will react…hope they like it! You tell me in 1 week! #angelnfaithchat

_

DarkHorseComics – RT @rebekahisaacs: writer @christosgage is getting great questions on his live #angelnfaithchat … you’ve still got 30 minutes to ask away!

_

MoscowWatcher@Christosgage Does time-travel exist in this new world? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@MoscowWatcher: Time travel could exist I guess if you do it without a spell. Paging David Nabbit! #angelnfaithchat

_

Zamol_xis@Christosgage Angel, Darla, Drusilla and Spike (Fang Gang evil vampires gang ever)

_

Christosgage@Zamol_xis: Ah! Well, mmmaybe a Fang Gang member or 2 will make an appearance. Flashback? Present day? stay tuned! #angelnfaithchat

_

DarkHorseComics – RT @christosgage: Ah! Well, mmmaybe a Fang Gang member or 2 will make an appearance. Flashback? Present day? stay tuned! #angelnfaithchat

_

adamreisinger@Christosgage any chance for romance for Angel and Faith (not necessarily together)? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adamreisinger: Romance with anyone is not on Angel or Faith’s mind as we begin but you never know where things could lead #angelnfaithchat

_

madmarvelgirl@Christosgage Do you have a favorite TV episode for each of the characters? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@madmarvelgirl: Yes I have fave eps but can’t think of them right now! Love The Zeppo for Xander… Billy Idol Spike… #angelnfaithchat

_

supephone@Christosgage Since a Morah demon is on a cover,will you be touching on when Angel became human with Buffy in IWRY?angelnfaithchat

_

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage You just answered about not tipping either way. Out of curiosity, are a shipper of Angel and Faith?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: I’m sorry, I don’t know what a shipper is. #angelnfaithchat
_

 

missnutellaa@Christosgage any old friends coming back from season 1-7 of btvs?

_

Christosgage@missnutellaa: Mohra demon. Harmony. Clem. More that you have to find out down the road! #angelnfaithchat

_

nicolesixx_@Christosgage @missnutellaa #chuckle Can’t really say I’d call the Mohra demon a friend, but then again probably not Harm either. #lol

_

slakat@Christosgage we’ll get to see some talk between Buffy (or any member of the scooby gang) and Faith? #Angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@slakat: Faith will talk to a Scooby gang member. Not Buffy, at least not in the near term. #angelnfaithchat

_

adamreisinger@Christosgage what are your first impressions of @rebekahisaacs‘s art on the series? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adamreisinger: @rebekahisaacs is going to be a superstar after this. Glad we have her locked up for a while! #angelnfaithchat

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage Will Connor be occurring at some point?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: We will address Connor at some point. Otherwise Angel is just a deadbeat Dad! #angelnfaithchat

_

_

yellowboxes@ChristosGage Are there any direct crossovers on the cards, or can we read Angel & Faith and Buffy: Season 9 separately? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@yellowboxes: A&F & Buffy are in the same universe with crossover elements but you can read each on their own #angelnfaithchat

_

MoscowWatcher@Christosgage How many flashbacks are there in the first 4 issues? Thanks! #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@MoscowWatcher: To Giles? At least two. #angelnfaithchat

_

EnemyOfPeanuts (Jim Gibbons!!): – @Christosgage Faith versus E. Honda… who wins?! #whedonvscapcom #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@EnemyOfPeanuts: E. Honda & Faith fight until they fall in love and get married and have chubby Slayer sumo babies. #angelnfaithchat

_

DarkHorseComics@enemyofpeanuts So Hilarious! :-D

_

supephone@Christosgage A shipper is a fan of a particular romantic pairing.#angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@supephone: Thanks. Man I feel old. I am a shipper of whatever makes for the juiciest stories, heh heh. #anglenfaithchat

_

7lovelyangel@Christosgage Last year, my heart broke again with Buffy and Angel’s tragic fate. Will I get some “kind of hope” for them in Season 9 ?

_

Christosgage@7lovelyangel: Honestly we will be keeping Angel & Buffy separate for most, maybe all of Season 9. They needed some space. #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage – By the way if I ever have a talk show @nicolesixx_ will be the McMahon to my Carson!

_

nicolesixx_@Christosgage Hahaha!! I’m alright w/ this. #lol #angelnfaithchat

_

GreenDayAngel@Christosgage @nicolesixx_ hahahahaha =D

_

lifedrawal@Christosgage In the first issues, Angel has already surpassed what he did to Giles and caused to the gang? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@lifedrawal: How do you mean surpassed? If you mean is he over it, definitely no! #angelnfaithchat

_

TortureforKicks – Will Buffy make an appearance in the comic as incentive? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@TortureforKicks: Aside from flashbacks, no Buffy appearances for a while. #angelnfaithchat

_

adculaba@Christosgage will there be an appearance from Drusilla at some point?

_

Christosgage@adculaba: That would be cool, wouldn’t it? #angelnfaithchat

_

LucaScandiani@Christosgage A&F is collocated during or Buffy season 9?

_

Christosgage@LucaScandiani: Um…if “collocated” means they take place at the same time, yes. I feel old and stupid today! #angelnfaithchat

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage Will there be an chance of a kiss between Angel/Faith? ;D

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: Always a chance. A kiss, a bite, a punch… #angelnfaithchat

_

SlayAliveForum@Christosgage Will Angel run afoul of Faith’s Slayers? I mean, he was Twilight, and Faith is counseling him and the girls. #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@SlayAliveForum: Yeah, that’s kind of awkward, isn’t it? ;) #angelnfaithchat

_

LucaScandiani@Christosgage Will we see illyria, gunn, cordelia, lorne, kate e connor again in this series?

_

Christosgage - @LucaScandiani: Yes on Connor. Illyria, follow Joss’ books. The others, stay tuned. But not as regulars. #angelnfaithchat

_

nicolesixx_ – Psst!! @Christosgage has hinted twice for all of you fellow Illyria fans to follow where Joss takes her in the books… #angelnfaithchat

_

adamreisinger@nicolesixx_ I hear Illyria gets a job at an S.F. record store, where she only recommends old ones you haven’t heard of #HipsterIllyria

_

nicolesixx_@adamreisinger Hahaha!! Perfect. #lol #angelnfaithchat

_

supephone@Christosgage Could you see Buffy & Angel interteracting again in the last part of season 9 or during season 10? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@supephone: I could see it, it’s up to Joss & also too soon to nail down with certainty just yet. #angelnfaithchat

_

adamreisinger@Christosgage how big a role does the London setting play in the series, particularly early on? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adamreisinger: London has a big role. Highgate figures in arc 2. @rebekahisaacs is going there soon. #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@adamreisinger: Hey, last time I was in London was before @rebekahisaacs was born. Who wants to fly me out? #angelnfaithchat
_

Christosgage – I don’t remember the Tower of London. I remember Forbidden Planet, finding Claremont/Byrne X-Men & Thor Annual #1. #nerd #angelnfaithchat

_

_

malbal93@Christosgage it seems like faith is doing some stuff on her own,will angel have his own thing/own agenda?#angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@malbal93: Oh yes. Angel has one hell of an agenda. See the last page of issue #1. #angelnfaithchat

_

LucaScandiani@LucaScandiani @Christosgage I meant during or before. Sorry.

_

Christosgage@LucaScandiani: No worries. I couldn’t ask questions in Italian if my life depended on it! #angelnfaithchat

_

_

Christosgage@Alex_Jamieson: I hear he’s a black private dick who’s a sex machine to all the chicks. #shutyomouth #Gunn #angelnfaithchat

_

_

slakat@Christosgage I really love @rebekahisaacs ‘s art, but if she wasn’t the artist, who would you like to have in the job? #Angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@slakat: I refuse to consider another artist besides @rebekahisaacs …wait, who’s drawing #5? Sweet! #underthebus #angelnfaithchat

_

MoscowWatcher@Christosgage Will Clem and Angel be comparing their impressions on Spike’s manners & tastes? :) #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@MoscowWatcher: Spike actually does get mentioned in issue #5 in a bit that made me smile. #angelnfaithchat
_
7lovelyangel@Christosgage Lots of people think Angel can’t be redeemed after what he did in S8, will his path be enough ? Can he ? ( I think he can )
_
Christosgage@7lovelyangel: Redemption is what Angel is all about. See what you think after reading! #angelnfaithchat
_
tireduncle@Christosgage Is Wolfram&hart part of the story or mentioned in some way? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@tireduncle: With access to Senior Partners cut off I imagine Wolfram & Hart is taking out ads on the back of buses. #angelnfaithchat
_
supephone@Christosgage Will the shanshu be mentioned or come into play in the book?#angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@supephone: Shanshu gets mentioned in arc 2. In what context? Wait and see! #angelnfaithchat
_
_
SlayAliveForum@Christosgage Which Buffyverse writer would you love to collaborate with on a Angel & Faith book? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@SlayAliveForum: Any, they all rule! Joss, of course. @JaneEspenson gave me an idea that is crucial to the whole season! #angelnfaithchat
_
missnutellaa@Christosgage re: your tweet about faith being together… for now. can you hint at what’s going to derail our girl? x
_
Christosgage@missnutellaa: She falls 4 a handsome Greek from Mass who rejects her because he loves his wife. If Joss approves the story. #fingerscrossed
_
zlbenson@Christosgage I know he needs to be redeemed yet again but we won’t just see a mopey Angel for the first few arcs, will we? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@zlbenson: Much more dangerous than mopey. #angelnfaithchat
_
7lovelyangel@Christosgage I really hope so. I would be mad at Joss ( and you ) if Angel can’t be redeemed at some point. ;-)

_

Christosgage@7lovelyangel: Good policy, always be mad at Joss, never at me. ;) #angelnfaithchat

_

Natalie5x5@Christosgage Are we going to get any flashbacks of Faith’s past?

_

Christosgage@Natalie5x5: How about people from Faith’s past? #angelnfaithchat

_

adculabaChristosgage will there be guest writers for Angel&Faith say someone like Joss? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgageadculaba: Joss is of course welcome any time but as of right now you’re stuck with me. #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@adculaba: & any time @ShawnRyanTV wants to write issues he can if he brings back Chicago Code and lets me write some. #angelnfaithchat

_

Spectacular_Wit@Christosgage How bout Xander popping up? Or Darla returning (again)? lol

_

Christosgage@Spectacular_Wit: Xander is in Buffy. Darla would be flashbacks only. #angelnfaithchat

_

supephone@Christosgage If you got the chance than would you want to write the Buffy/Angel reunion or would you rather Joss do that? #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage@supephone: I would want Joss to write the Buffy/Angel reunion. #angelnfaithchat

_

DarkHorseComics – Thanks so much @christosgage for joining us and taking time out of your busy schedule to answer some questions! #angelnfaithchat

_

Christosgage – Thanks @DarkHorseComics and everyone for having me! Will try to answer a few more then gotta go! #angelnfaithchat

_

DarkHorseComics@christosgage is Finishing up a few final questions. What a trooper! #angelnfaithchat.
_
SlayAliveForum@Christosgage When will we see this big idea that @JaneEspenson handed you? Is this that huge twist you mentioned before? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@SlayAliveForum: Roughly arc 4 but it informs everything. #angelnfaithchat #janeespensonrules
_
Natalie5x5@Christosgage Will Mayor Richard Wilkins be making an appearance? ;) I just dig that guy.
_
Christosgage@Natalie5x5: Me too. But no. However arc 2 is called “Daddy Issues.” #angelnfaithchat
_
tireduncle@Christosgage Does Kate the cop (or ex-cop) appear in the story? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@tireduncle: No Kate plans but we Law & Order alums gotta stick together. Would like to write her at some point. #angelnfaithchat
_
7lovelyangel@Christosgage Beside all the redemption path, family etc… Will there be some humor in S9 ? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@7lovelyangel: Issue #5 will hopefully be funny. Humor has always been part of Angel. #angelnfaithchat
_
tireduncle@Christosgage If your still answering, will characters from the IDW run like Beta Goerge (the fish) be appearing, can they? #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage@tireduncle: No IDW characters. Mostly because the cast is staying fairly pared down in general. #angelnfaithchat
_
DarkHorseComics@christosgage You Rock! What an awesome Live Chat! #angelnfaithchat
_
Christosgage – Thanks again everyone, and apologies to everyone whose Twitter feed I hogged! #angelnfaithchat
_
DarkHorseComics – Thanks again everyone! And huge THANK YOU to @christosgage #angelnfaithchat
_

elizadushku – “@Christosgage: @Natalie5x5: How about people from Faith’s past? #angelnfaithchat” Yeah, how about people from Faith’s past..?

To which Gage replied with so much geeky swagger:

Christosgage – That’s right, @elizadushku retweeted me. That makes me royalty in Worcester. Wicked retahded royalty, but still royalty.
