After the Fall, Volume 1 is the first volume of the Angel hardcovers, collecting issues one to five of the comic book series. It was originally published July 9, 2008, by IDW Publishing.


In Angel's final television season, his world ended… but his story didn't. Now, IDW Publishing is proud to present the story of Angel: After the Fall, as presided over by Angel co-creator Joss Whedon, along with his hand-picked creative team, Brian Lynch and Franco Urru. Picking up where Season Five of the fan-favorite TV show left off, this first volume looks at who lived after that climactic battle, who died, and what happened to all of Los Angeles in its wake.[1]
