Darkness has possessed another innocent...and Angel has no choice but to fight them. Trapped in an empty hospital with nowhere to go, Angel needs to find a way to save the host from this deadly and elusive demon, or have yet another life on his conscience. Will his new ally Fred Burkle be able to help him...or is she the reason he's battling this monster in the first place? The next exciting chapter of the pop culture reimagining that made headlines worldwide continues from Bryan Edward Hill (Detective Comics, Killmonger), Gleb Melnikov and series creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers).

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jul 31, 2019

    With the Hellmouth event announced during SDCC, we know that inAngel #5we're going to see Angel and Buffy meet, but until then, I'm satisfied with the bonds that Hill is solidifying.Angel #3further shows readers that both Hill and Melnikov understand not only the character of Angel but the toy box of horror imagery and trope and how to play with it.

    One of the greatest aspects of Joss Whedon's properties is his ensemble cast, and Angel #3 does an excellent job at reestablishing our favorite Angel heroes for new and old fans alike. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 31, 2019

    Angel #3 was a fast read, but it got us to a good place in this story. From here, we got a very good idea as to what's in store for us investing in this book. They are very much sticking to everything we know about the history of Angel, while at the same time throwing in their own unique twists which make this both updated and refreshing. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Jul 31, 2019

    Theres solid work in Angel #3. Its slowly laying the groundwork for new adventures of the Angel/Fred/Gunn/Wesley team we all know and love. Its a shame the book is constrained by a reboot, that mostly serves the needs of another book. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 8, 2019

    Fred is an interesting choice of a first companion to Angel, rather than Cordelia (who is still in high school) and Lilith‘s note about Angel's journey helping to quiet her mind makes you wonder what version of the character we may see when Angel emerges from the hellish maze Fred just sent him to. Worth a look. Read Full Review
