    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Sep 25, 2019

    All the components for a good comic are here--a good writer with a handle on the characters, a solid art team that particularly works well together. Why, then, does Angel #5 feel (pardon the pun) lifeless?  Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 25, 2019

    Overall Angel #5, or the prelude to Hellmouth for Angel, walked a fine line between pushing this story into the big crossover event, and taking Angel through that next step on his end towards closing the door in Sunnydale. Read Full Review

    The issue ends confirming it was Angel who Buffy spoke to previously at the Halloween dance, and putting Angel in place in time for Drusilla's plans to come to fruition (in the upcoming Hellmouth crossover). Will Fred and Gunn be joining the party? Or will we have to wait a bit for more from them? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    "Angel" #5 gets so much of what made the characters of the show tick and puts it in a new fresh context that you can forgive any awkwardness of some of the narration. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Sep 29, 2019

    Angel #5is perfectly a set up for the Hellmouth event, but because of that, it feels slightly empty. While this isn't a bad issue, it's simply just okay, looking to bring us into a different story for a separate event and not really focused on the dynamic of the Angelseries proper. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Sep 22, 2019

    An all round solid introduction to a character that you thought you knew. Bryan Edward Hill and Gleb Melnikov have a perfect understanding of Angel's world. This comic if funny, scary, and a great read. Read Full Review
