Pretty good. The story is interesting, and I like that it takes place in destroyed LA. Also, Like the appearance of Spike >. ( )

While it was good to see what happened to many of the characters immediately after LA fell, this felt less substantial and a little out of place coming after the first volume, which was set later in time. The artwork varied widely for these short pieces, but almost all of it worked. ( )

An entire book of filler, contributing nothing to the story. And it's not particularly entertaining, either. ( )

The Good: The TV show ended on an epic cliffhanger, where the surviving characters were poised to enter what seemed to be a battle to their deaths. This volume finally answers the question of who survives and how. This alone makes the volume a worthwhile read.

The Bad: Instead of following Volume 1, this goes back to where the show ended. It's what all fans want to know, but making the series out of chronological order is annoying. The artwork is spotty, in relation to the characters. This cover is supposed to be Wesley. You can see that's what they're going for, but cover art is generally perfectly identifiable and this just isn't. The characters in the panels are even less identifiable and it leads to confusion at inconvenient times in the story. ( )

Even though this is Volume 2, this graphic novel takes place right after the end of Angel Season 5, Episode 22 Not Fade Away. It contains short stories about what happens to many characters from the series: Betta (comics), Spike, Illyria, Connor, Lorne, Wesley, Kate, Gwen, Gunn and Civilians. There is also an art gallery at the end followed by some exposé by Brian Lynch. All interesting stuff. And I must add how much I loved Groo’s blog post at the beginning of the book. Good shit there!

I haven’t read any of the other Angel comics, so this is the first one I’ve cracked open. Even though it’s Volume 2, chronologically it takes place before Volume 1. I think. I’m not sure, but I’m about to find out. Anyway, I quite enjoyed both the stories and the artwork in this volume. I have to admit I have no clue who/what that Betta fish thing is, so I guess I need to go back to the comics and find out. I was very happy to see Kate and Gwen again. They were some of my favorite minor characters from the show (Groo was another) and I wish they had stuck around longer. All-in-all I’m quite pleased with this graphic novel. ( )
