Meet Angel – a vampire cursed with a soul who has spent centuries protecting humanity from the monsters that lurk in the dark...including himself. Now, looking for redemption for the atrocities committed by the monster he was when he was first turned at the age of 18, Angel stumbles upon a new demon uprising and a shocking truth: The restoration of his humanity can only come if he takes one more life: a certain Slayer from Sunnydale who he's never met...but may now be his greatest enemy.

    If the series can continue to add new layers to this beloved character in the same way issue #0 does, we're in for one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    Final Verdict: 7.0" Despite a valiant effort, “Angel” #0 isn't particularly good of an approach for newcomers, requiring some incoming knowledge, and perhaps works best as a companion piece to the core “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” series. Read Full Review

    Although the supporting characters we see here aren't likely to make many appearances once the series begins in earnest, Angel #0 is a solid introductory issue to the updated version of the character about to make his first appearance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer #5. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    If it was an issue of Buffy, it'd feel like a backdoor pilot, but for now we're content to wait another month for the full debut to arrive. Read Full Review

    This story is a hit, but the visuals are a major misfire. I love the character's brooding nature, which is part of his charm, and his supporting cast is terrific. Unfortunately the title character is either illustrated roughly, like a hurried sketch, or shown half covered in shadow. This is a major detriment to the book. I'm on board to see where the story is going, but if the art remains the same, I won't be sticking around for long. Angel deserves better. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, I wasn't very into this. For me, it has to come down to the supporting cast. Angel is given a brand new supporting cast just to have it ripped away from him. While that does sound like classic Angel, it's hard to make me care about these brand new characters in the space of an issue. I'm sure this will bring Angel to a different place by the time he makes it to Sunnydale, but I don't think his want "to work alone" needed to be reinforced. In the original shows, he learned that he was better off alone by what happened in the first few seasons of Buffy. That had much more of an impact because we as an audience grew to care about everyone involved and could sympathize with Angel. This felt like a shortcut, plain and simple. I'm more
