    Angel continues to capture the essence of the classic show while finding fresh new ways to twist the mythos, and it shows no sign of stopping anytime soon! Read Full Review

    The Hellmouth and Angel take a back seat to Fred and Gunn on a mission. The characters are fantastic in their words and deeds. The visuals are beautiful, strong, and cool. This Angel continues to outshine the Buffy comic. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Oct 29, 2019

    Angel #6 is not just the best issue of the title to date. Still, because of its focus on the supporting cast, it also feels the most like the original television show--an admirable feat, since the context and situations are so radically different from the TV series. More issues like this one could put Angel near the top of the pull list. Read Full Review

    Another great issue, and in this modern age of binging makes me impatient for the next issue to see what happens next. A must for Buffy/Angel fans. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 23, 2019

    There was a lot of things to look forward to from Angel #6, and it was a thrill that this part of the tie-in would focus on everyone else left behind from Angel's world. This is one of the more character driven issues of the series, and managed to also satisfy in some quick action which assured us that Fred and Gunn have just as much to offer as new additions to this re-imagining of the story.

    Although the "Hellmouth" trade dress on the cover is a little misleading,Angel #6 is still a good comic, taking time to shine the spotlight on the book's supporting characters. If you're a fan of the show, the changes may be a bit jarring, but once this comic gets rolling, it's a heck of a fun ride! Read Full Review

    Angel #6 isn't the strongest tie-in, but it was nice to see the title take Angel's absence as an opportunity to put a spotlight on the book's supporting characters. Read Full Review

    Well, more Spike is always great. I hope this all ends with him becoming a regular member of the Angel cast, like in the fifth season of the TV show. If this version of Spike and Angel have even an ounce of chemistry that the originals had in the show, it'll be great. Also, did they call Fred "The Oracle" at the end of the issue? Did I miss something? Is she taking Cordelia's role from the TV show?
