    The writing within the first installment is spot-on. Aguirre-Sacasa has spent time on several other Marvel books, like Sensational Spider-Man, but I have honestly never spent any time with the writer and his work. His style works well for this story, at least, and never was there a moment of awkwardness that overwhelmed the feeling of the book.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny May 26, 2008

    Overall I found this issue to be quite disappointing and inconsistent. I'll keep reading simply because I find the priest character to be compelling, but I don't think I could recommend this to anyone that has little or no interest in Angel. This one is probably best for fans only. Read Full Review
