After the events of Hellmouth, Spike is here to stay, and Angel will just have to deal with it. That is, if he ever comes back from the Hellmouth. This whole saving the world from evil can't be that hard, can it? Spike isn't used to playing the good guy, but he's pretty sure he and the team can handle a few lawyers.

    Ring of Fire is off to a great start. It's good fun seeing Angel return and learning the new status quo, the introduction of a new character promises a new and interesting dynamic going forward. Angel Investigations has officially been born. The art from Gleb Melnikov and Roman Titov's colors are as outstanding as always and a real highlight of the comic. You need to be reading this comic.

    A quick note of the cover shows a heading of Ring of Fire. As a fan of the show I think I have a good idea what comes next. Like Skip said, alot of lives coming together. Angel might want to ask Lilith to help him finish his list of allies, I think someone is coming to Los Angeles. Read Full Review

    Having Spike and Angel in the same room does make for some great dialogue -- one of the many reasons Angel fans should be excited for this new story arc and the new direction for this already superb title. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2020

    From one situation right into the next. It doesn't seem like there will be a dull day for this team. Especially now that they have the charismatic Spike now joining the party. For how long? Who knows! But let's all really let it sink in that we have gotten to a point where we are actually picking up a book titled Angel & Spike. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 5, 2020

    Angel + Spike #9 also introduces the First Season character Kate Lockley for the first time in the rebooted universe as the detective runs across monsters and is guided to Angel by Lilith. I'll be curious to see if Kate ends up having a larger or smaller role in this version of events. of The comic also furthers the foreshadowing of Wolfram & Hart becoming a major part of the comic in the near future.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 8, 2020

    Angelis given a shiny new coat of paint as it morphs intoAngel & Spike, but there are still so many underdeveloped characters and narratives here that it's going to take a lot more than a couple of new characters to save this sinking ship. Read Full Review

    I wish this issue was a bit longer. We got to see Angel and Spike be Angel and Spike, and that's great. I want more of that. We also get introduced to this series' version of Kate Lockley. I have problems with her original portrayal in the show, and this comic weaves a different path for the character that nonetheless could easily lead to that same problematic character. But we'll see. This is a genuinely great issue. It's rare that I want a comic to be longer than it is given how much I read. It's even rarer when said comic is written by Bryan Edward Hill. Where was this in Fallen Angels, man?
