The Hollower, Part Three is the first issue of "Angel: The Hollower" miniseries. It was written by Christopher Golden and illustrated by Hector Gomez.


It all comes down to this, sports fans! In the ring to my left: the Hollowervampire’s only natural predator other than the Slayer! And in the ring to my right: Angel — champion of the undead, ex-boyfriend of the Slayer, and one all-around bad mother! Place your bets now, ‘cause this one’s gonna get nasty! From the pages of the monthly hit, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, comes Angel — vampire hero and hunky heartthrob.[1]


  • Buffy mentions she have declared before "Nobody messes with my boyfriend", having done it in episode "What's My Line, Part Two".
  • Angel gives up his attempt to become human in fear of losing Buffy, a decision similar to the one he’ll make in "I Will Remember You".

Behind the Scenes


  • Published even before the homonym television show, it’s considered the first Angel comic issue, although still a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic publication.
  • The photo cover includes a promotional picture for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season three.
  • Differently from other representations, at this point the comic issues had vampires also able to transform into green creatures with red eyes, pointy ears, a wide mouth, and long teeth. Although, this seems more like an artistic choice, not having direct consequence to the stories.
