For any fans of the Angel tv show, or fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.Angel is back, and he's teamed up with Faith to try and resurrect Giles. ( )

Takes place after the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic book series. [This review contains Spoilers for Buffy Season Eight.]

Angel and Faith have teamed up, living in London. Giles left Faith his home, and she's been digging through his old Watcher Files. Angel, angsting about having killed Giles while under Twilight's control, has become obsessed with the idea of bringing him back from the dead. But he also has to deal with two disgruntled half-demons who killed slayers for him when he was "Twilight."

I enjoyed the Giles/Faith team-up we saw in Buffy:Season Eight; I'm not so sure how I feel about Angel and Faith yet. I'm sort of lukewarm about Angel's character to begin with, but on the other hand if you are an Angel fan you should enjoy this.

The art by Rebekah Isaacs is very good, the characters are instantly recognizable. Frankly, I think it is much better than the art in the Buffy comics. The story feels a bit thin at this point, though. It is only the first volume, but I hope they flesh out the plot a little in the next book. ( )

Why read: Love Angel.

What impressed me: More Angel! Yep, that's about it.

What disappointed me: This is a decent continuation of Angel's story, but without Buffy or even his old friends from the series, things are dry. Faith just doesn't make the greatest partner to carry the series. The storyline was sort of ridiculous. Angel wanting to bring Giles back from the dead. As heartbroken as I was when Giles died, the entire idea just seems sadly like grasping at straws.

Recommended: Only if you really need an Angel fix.

Continue series: Yes, but only because I do, in fact, need an Angel fix. ( )

The supernatural world is reeling after the loss of magic in Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, a prelude to the events that shape Angel and Faith.

In his ongoing search for redemption, Angel firmly believes he's found a way to make amends--by reviving the dead! Cue Faith--rebel Slayer charged with helping Angel recover in the aftermath of his biggest misdeed. This story takes place during Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 by Joss Whedon.… (more)
