Less is more

I'm not especially thrilled to read that a new Angel comic may be "resolving some of the lingering cliffhangers from the series finale". As cliffhangers go, that one was pretty damn awesome and thematically perfect for the series. And comics based on TV and movies generally suck. And finally, Joss Whedon's shows start fray after five seasons or so; if Buffy had continued, the current season would probably consist entirely of Andrew and Kennedy sitting on the porch drinking lemonade.

NB: The "comics based on TV and movies generally suck" rule does not apply to the forthcoming Buckaroo Banzai comic.
