Wolfram & Hart has been meddling in the lives of Team Angel, and the cracks are
starting to show. As Fred wrestles for control over her new dark magic, Angel is
too distracted by his connection with Detective Kate Lockley - and her mysterious
connection to his past - to see it.

    Zac Thompson feels like an excellent choice to take over as the writer on the series, his clear love of the show shines through and he's doing an excellent job with the cast. The ongoing storylines feel fresh and exciting for fans of old, with no clear destination in mind yet. The art is a big change which might initially be a hurdle for some fans, but is as equally stylish as what's come before. Read Full Review

    Issue #15 also continues to tease a more romantic relationship between Angel and Kate, which the TV-show hinted at but never developed. The comic also checks in with Fred, who it appears is having a bit of trouble staying sane with the metaphysical entities warring within her skull. Read Full Review

    the overall story is okay, but I hate the art and the dialogues. It looks and sounds like completely different characters from the beginning of the series.

    Man, I am not liking this. I feel like all the characters are out of character. The dialogue is the biggest problem, I think. It's like everyone got ran through a woke filter, so now everyone is very keen on gay lingo and Angel is very caught up on the socio-political ramblings of the Wokescold. And in a different book with different characters, this would be fine, but it does not fit these characters. I don't understand how this book can be praised for nailing the voices of these characters while still openly ignoring their traits. Angel is supposed to be outdated and asocial. In the shows, it's Buffy and, later, Doyle and Cordelia (and Wesley) that get him to become more sociable. But he's still not great at it. We've seen none of that in more
