Well, it took a little while, but it's finally done. :o)
"Synth" is a crossover between AtS and Fray. ('Fray', for those who haven't read it yet, is a well-crafted tale, written by Joss Whedon himself, with gorgeous artwork by Karl Moline. In my opinion it's hands down the best of the Whedonverse comics out there, not to be missed!)
This comic is also a follow-up of sorts to yhlee 's fic Radio Free. It is pretty much self-contained so should make sense even if you're unfamiliar with 'Fray' and 'Radio Free'. All you need to know is that in the aftermath of "Not Fade Away," Angel and Gunn are swept via dimensional slide into the future world of Fray, where there is only one Slayer (Melaka Fray) and Haddyn (once Manhattan) is divided deeply between the haves in the "uppers" and the have-nots in the warrens.
Disclaimer: AtS belongs to Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, and Fox. Fray belongs to Joss Whedon. Joss is our master. This is an unofficial and unauthorized fan comic, no money is being made. Unless you all rush off to Amazon to buy "Fray", which you should, in which case someone somewhere will make some money (but not us).
The look of Fray's world and its denizens is loosely based on the designs that Karl Moline developed for 'Fray', but I didn't want to cling too closely to the source there.
Many thanks to lettered for the invaluable beta, and to Birgit and Steffi, my favorite housemates, who provided many helpful comments. Dedicated to makd , for being a good ghost of the fandom. :)
For those with a slow web connection: here is the comic split into six parts (each part still about 700 KB...):
