    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Aug 4, 2020

    While the Hellmouth crossover event is every bit as epic as it set out to be, Angel & Spike really shines in these closer, personal stories. We get to the heart of these characters and what connects them. As dysfunctional as this group can be, they're still going to stick together and fight for one another, even if what binds them together is still fresh. This has set out on its own path separate from the TV show it's based on and it is better for it. These is a unique story full of possibilities. Read Full Review

    This issue's story is not groundbreaking but it pushes all the right buttons. The art work across the board is magnificent with each creator enhancing each others work. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jul 22, 2020

    This book has been surprisingly fun from the get go. Slower issues have been used well to move things long well and even the crossover, with it's less Angel focused plot encapsulated the "team" element of the book, even if the term "team" is massively over used. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 22, 2020

    After Hellmouth, it's a bold new world for these heroes. The events of Angel & Spike #12 proved that much to be true, and much more. This is Wolfram & Hart like we have never seen them before, and it makes you wonder how they are going to deal with an enemy they didn't take seriously enough till now. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jul 22, 2020

    An action packed issue, a number of storylines are taking unexpected and interesting steps, it's going to be interesting to see how they resolve. Team Angel feels a lot more fluid and less defined than in the TV series, no-one feels safe or a permanent fixture yet, which adds a sense of danger to the series. Melnikov's art is truly outstanding and has been an excellent match for the series, and this issue has some of his best moments. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 3, 2020

    As Lilith states, Angel chose Kate's safety over Fred. Now bonded with Baphomet, Fred has been given a new position: CEO of Wolfram & Hart. As to how much of Fred remains (from what little Lilith reveals it appears Fred has be joined with the demon rather than taken over by him), and whether she is still friend or enemy, that remains to be seen. What happens when Angel interferes with the plans of Wolfram & Hart? Read Full Review
