MY THOUGHTS Aftermath & Season 8 connecting? *spoliers*

Time to speculate. Darkhorse comics has released some information about where Season 8 is going and I wonder if it could lead to a Angel cross-over. But don't get your hopes up.

Issue 21 - Harmonic Divergence
"'Harmonic Divergence.' Television writer Jane Espenson returns to Buffy the Vampire Slayer in Season Eight. Espenson is the first of five acclaimed writers that tackle this groundbreaking story arc -- where Buffy fans are introduced to a new world where vampires are in and Slayers are out. Cue Harmony, the bubblegum cheerleader from Sunnydale High whose ambitions include blood sucking and stardom.

Issue 22 - Swell
"Vampires are the hottest thing around -- forget hipsters; being a bloodsucking fiend is where's it's at! Slayers must take the good fight underground if they're to avoid any bad press from the general public."

Issue 23
"It's Buffy--and Andrew--on a mission in Italy . . . together! Awkward? Yes!Since Harmony's television stunt, the ensuing of general vampire-love from the masses, and the destruction of the Scotland base, operations at Slayer headquarters have been somewhat strained. Rogue Slayers--Simone and her gang--have not been helping Slayer-civilian relations with their attacks against the military, bank robbing, and occasional snitching at Hot Topic."

To sum up, slayers are out and vampires are in. Could this cover for Aftermath* issue 19 be a clue?

Will vampires be popular in Aftermath as well? Or is it what I think, just a coincident? The description from IDW doesn't show anything in common with Season 8, but a girl can dream;

Description: "As Angel and the remaining survivors from their sojourn to Hell attempt to rebuild their lives and find purpose once again, they must also contend with the threat of a vengeful Lord, a mysterious cat-changer and a winged being from beyond…"

*Aftermath, to be written by Kelley Armstrong, is a Angel-series that will deal with the aftermath of After The Fall.
