Canonical issues

Main article: Buffyverse canon
Angel comics, such as this one are not usually consdered by fans as canon. Rather than being 'canon', some fans consider them stories from the imaginations of authors' and artists', whilst other fans consider them as taking place in an alternative fictional reality. However unlike fanfic, 'overviews' summarising their story, written early in the writing process, were 'approved' by both Fox and Whedon (or his office), and the books were therefore later published as officially Angel merchandise. Peter David, has regularly mentioned on his web log, that he is a big fan of the Buffyverse, and also mentioned that he did his best to keep his Buffyverse comics consistant with continuity established by canon.
