    This title confuses me Angel and Faith have just reunited for good in the finale of Season 10, we got a sense of an epic upcoming adventure, and then Dark Horse just cancels their series and introduces Angel solo title instead Faith is nowhere to be seen Why And for what You d think that this new series must at least kick ass, right Wrong Oh dear god, so wrong.So Angel and Fred Illyria, completely out of the blue and for no reason at all, travel through time to some prehistoric era whe This title confuses me Angel and Faith have just reunited for good in the finale of Season 10, we got a sense of an epic upcoming adventure, and then Dark Horse just cancels their series and introduces Angel solo title instead Faith is nowhere to be seen Why And for what You d think that this new series must at least kick ass, right Wrong Oh dear god, so wrong.So Angel and Fred Illyria, completely out of the blue and for no reason at all, travel through time to some prehistoric era when Illyria was still a young and powerful fat blob with tentacles who ruled some ancient civilisation So they run around a lot and then fight some aliens and ancient gods This sounds like bullshit already, right And it is This series is not relevant to anything that is or was going on in the Buffyverse, it doesn t serve any purpose, it doesn t add anything to anyone s character It s useless Absolutely useless.Corinna Bechko is an awful writer Not only did she come up with the stupidest story, she also doesn t understand Angel, Fred OR Illyria She writes them as some generic dumb characters in a Michael Bay level brainless action film They have no personality, no self awareness, no sense of humour The dialogue is clunky and cringe worthy, completely opposite to what Joss Whedon s Buffy and Angel shows were famous for.Even the artwork by Z Carlos is bad His action scenes, environments and monsters look fine, but the characters Do these look like handsome and broody David Boreanaz, or sweet and charming Amy Acker Or do they looklike the victims of some horrible disease You decide.Overall, this is easily the worst Dark Horse Angel comic to date, maybe even worse than some of those non canon old IDW comics The good news is, you will miss absolutely nothing if you skip this series entirely You don t need this comic to read Buffy Season 11, or any other Buffyverse comic in existence So there s that My advice Stay away from this heaping pile of crap

    Positively dreadful You d expect this to pick up where Angel Faith Season 10 left off but nope It feels like it was written by someone who s never read previous seasons of the Buffyverse or even seen the show It s lacking any kind of humor nor does it build off of previous stories Angel and Illyria go back to prehistoric demon times to right a mistake Illyria made ions ago God, it s awful And the art is amateur hour at best Joss Whedon should be embarrassed to even have his name associa Positively dreadful You d expect this to pick up where Angel Faith Season 10 left off but nope It feels like it was written by someone who s never read previous seasons of the Buffyverse or even seen the show It s lacking any kind of humor nor does it build off of previous stories Angel and Illyria go back to prehistoric demon times to right a mistake Illyria made ions ago God, it s awful And the art is amateur hour at best Joss Whedon should be embarrassed to even have his name associated with this.Received an advance copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review

    Angel Out of the Past was thankfully short so it didn t take much time reading it The story isn t that memorable, with Angel and Fred going back in time to help Illyria destroy another god.Well, what to say other than this graphic novel really didn t turn out the way I expected it to do I was charmed by the lovely cover and then I was seriously disappointed with both the art and the story OK, the story was not totally bad, but at the same time was it not totally good I have never been a b Angel Out of the Past was thankfully short so it didn t take much time reading it The story isn t that memorable, with Angel and Fred going back in time to help Illyria destroy another god.Well, what to say other than this graphic novel really didn t turn out the way I expected it to do I was charmed by the lovely cover and then I was seriously disappointed with both the art and the story OK, the story was not totally bad, but at the same time was it not totally good I have never been a big fan of Fred, and reading a whole graphic novel about her and Illyria was not really my cup of tea.I gave the graphic novel 3 stars at first, but as I was sitting down to write this review did I ask myself did I enjoy it enough to give it 3 stars I mean the art was cringeworthy, they didn t even look like the characters from the TV series And, neither was the art that appealing It was just not the kind of art that I like, too sloppy I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through Edelweiss for an honest review

    Read as single issues This series confuses me It s meant to be Angel Season 11 It reads almost like a series written for other characters, with Angel and Fred Illyria then thrown into them instead It works to a degree, but Angel in prehistoric times fighting dinosaurs and demons is not what I expected to find when I read this series With Angel Buffy back at Dark Horse together, I m surprised that they re so separate in terms of storytelling These first four issues also don t seem to make Read as single issues This series confuses me It s meant to be Angel Season 11 It reads almost like a series written for other characters, with Angel and Fred Illyria then thrown into them instead It works to a degree, but Angel in prehistoric times fighting dinosaurs and demons is not what I expected to find when I read this series With Angel Buffy back at Dark Horse together, I m surprised that they re so separate in terms of storytelling These first four issues also don t seem to make much headway with the actual plot, so it s all a detour which again is an odd way to open a series.The art is by Geraldo Borges, who has been popping up over at DC for a while now to do fill in issues of different series His style is pretty much in house comics stuff, so there s really not much to say Not much to say really sums this up, to be honest A very weird start to season 11, especially if it s only 12 issues like Buffy is this season

    The idea of Angel and Fred Illyria having their own adventures sounds AWESOME But not this like The entirety of this story is so NOT logical, especially not in terms of the established continuity and mythology Illyria should not be able to travel that far back in time This is not how time travel works in this universe Illyria does not have half of the powers she s been shown using in this book or at least they haven t been mentioned before I know there s new magic and new rules , but The idea of Angel and Fred Illyria having their own adventures sounds AWESOME But not this like The entirety of this story is so NOT logical, especially not in terms of the established continuity and mythology Illyria should not be able to travel that far back in time This is not how time travel works in this universe Illyria does not have half of the powers she s been shown using in this book or at least they haven t been mentioned before I know there s new magic and new rules , but this all just seems like lazy writing and plotting It feels like it could be a decent story if done in another universe with different characters This just isn t a story that was meant to be told in the canon Buffyverse maybe fan fiction Also, this just wasn t the story that needed to be told or that fans wanted It has absolutely nothing to do with the previous seasons, which had so much left hanging last time around I m 100% forfocus on Fred Illyria, especially since they didn t get the attention or explanation they deserved last season, but this story is just some fan wank The writer does a decent job with Angel s voice and even Fred s, but butchers Illyria s I HATE that Illyria is suddenly 100% female and refers to herself as such Goddess This writer just suffers from lack of grasping the universe and its rules They were too worried about telling the story THEY wanted to tell, one that didn t mesh with these characters Honestly, I blame the people who hired them They straight up should have known this was not the way to take this season, and even then, they should have told the writer no, you can t write that over and over throughout their scripts So much is just so out of place and out of character, and does not make sense in continuity We deserved a season focused on Angel and Fred Illyria, but not like this How can you do a season focused on Fred Illyria and completely ignore how she came back to life How can you ignore Illyria s sudden personality glitches both last season and this season It s just so lazy I m tired of laziness These characters deserve better Side note, the art is alright, sometimes, so there s that

    Better than After the Fall but I think I prefer Angel Faith That said, I m a total sucker for Angelus and Darla era so I m interested to see what part 2 brings Better than After the Fall but I think I prefer Angel Faith That said, I m a total sucker for Angelus and Darla era so I m interested to see what part 2 brings

    SO MUCH FUN Our library system was sadly lacking Season 11 and on request they have thankfully rectified that This is very different in tone to concentration camp Buffy over in the USA and a lotplayful despite the possibility of world ending doom Hmm, is there something maybe developing between Angel Fred They have known each for a long time and been working together on off since L.A.In order to investigate the coming big bad they must travel back through time First stop is preh SO MUCH FUN Our library system was sadly lacking Season 11 and on request they have thankfully rectified that This is very different in tone to concentration camp Buffy over in the USA and a lotplayful despite the possibility of world ending doom Hmm, is there something maybe developing between Angel Fred They have known each for a long time and been working together on off since L.A.In order to investigate the coming big bad they must travel back through time First stop is prehistoric demons and seeing the real version of Illryia The second stop involves current Angel v.s young Angelus also, pirates, zombies, Darla, and another volcano Looking forward to three Note fun story and concepts but not the most accurate graphic representations of Angel bitluck with Fred but that s a bit hit miss as well.Note A fun coffee in bed weekend read but I was confused why Faith wasn t present Is this the period when they re on the outs because of what happened with Giles

    This book was ok It lacks momentum from the previous season, having no compelling narrative tissue in common, and the main conflict is somewhat interesting but the story doesn t contribute much to ongoing arcs.It suffers somewhat from an opening that feels very episodic, and the introduction of threats and regrets out of the characters pasts that have never been indicated before.I feel like the creative team knew they needed to do something with Illyria, and they were right in that, but this s This book was ok It lacks momentum from the previous season, having no compelling narrative tissue in common, and the main conflict is somewhat interesting but the story doesn t contribute much to ongoing arcs.It suffers somewhat from an opening that feels very episodic, and the introduction of threats and regrets out of the characters pasts that have never been indicated before.I feel like the creative team knew they needed to do something with Illyria, and they were right in that, but this story just doesn t resonate as strongly as I like to see It s not worthless, especially to fans, but it feelslike the kind of comics and books we used to get that weren t canon It especially falls short next to what the Buffy comic was doing at the same time which is incredibly compelling, relevant, and vital Not garbage or anything, but Angel seemed to get the short end of the stick this time

    I m a bit of a snob when it comes to likenesses, but the Angel drawings in this are pretty solidly off the mark The dialogue for all three characters is pretty off as well The story isn t bad, but it s not spectacular either The comics usually cover a lot of ground with lots of characters and this felt like something that would have worked better as a stand alone television episode I also feel a bit duped This promised me Angel s past and instead went to Illyria s which is interesting, but I m a bit of a snob when it comes to likenesses, but the Angel drawings in this are pretty solidly off the mark The dialogue for all three characters is pretty off as well The story isn t bad, but it s not spectacular either The comics usually cover a lot of ground with lots of characters and this felt like something that would have worked better as a stand alone television episode I also feel a bit duped This promised me Angel s past and instead went to Illyria s which is interesting, but not nearly as good I m hoping the next arc will fulfill the promise, although slightly delayed

    Pointless addition to the Angelverse that throws away all the good ideas developed previously in the Angel and Faith series No Faith No Magic Town No humour No real understanding of the characters No tie ins to Buffy season 11 Quite possibly written by someone who has never seen an episode of Angel and drawn by someone who has never seen a human Damn my completist nature which means I need to trawl through the remaining volumes.
