Angel's work is never done. During his most recent world saving, a part of London was transformed and flooded with magic. Who better to watch over this magical community than Angel? At least, that's what he thinks. Meanwhile, Faith starts a new chapter in her life-slaying zompires alongside Buffy?!

    I'm so thankful that Dark Horse decided to continue this series. I love the previous “season” and fell in love with both characters all over again because of it. Gischler and Conrad make a fine addition to this team and I'll eagerly be awaiting each issue that comes out. Read Full Review

    The new creative team takes the “back to basics” approach to heart and crafts a great issue. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Kory Cerjak Apr 7, 2014

    Faith's storyline here is much more interesting than Angel's, I think, because it hits at the heart of a new issue. Angel is dealing with the plot, but is otherwise still brooding and trying to achieve any semblance of redemption he can. Faith has been up and down but she finally seemed to have hit a nice spot first with the Slayers she was mentoring and then with Giles coming back. Now she's lost again and hopefully Kennedy is there to help find her. Read Full Review

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander Nov 30, -0001

    For a Season opener this is a great way to start. The two stories are pretty separate but you get the feeling this is a duo who do better when talking is not involved. If the new creators can follow in their predecessor's vein then the future looks pretty bright for Angel and Faith. I look forward to discovering all that Magic Town has to offer both in terms of allies and enemies and I'm sure they will be a s brutal as they need to be. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 2, 2014

    Overall this was a good start to big things which are in store for Angel & Faith. Of course it is possible to have that fear that the balance between both halves of the story can fall into question, though for now things are looking good for the future. My only question that comes out of this is whether Angel & Faith will have more ties to Buffy, or if it will stand on its own as something that might not call upon the need to know what occurs between each.

    Rhymes With Geek - Dante Cianni Apr 2, 2014

    This is another great book for a Buffy fan like me. Am I fan-boying out a little bit? Probably. Is this book for everyone? Probably not " if you're picking up a Buffy book for the first time, there's 9 previous seasons of heavy, complicated, insane storylines that you're going to have to know to pick up on all the little nuances. Lucky for you, I just recapped the entire thing. So I'm excited for another season of Angel & Faith " it's good to get perspective outside the core Scooby gang. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 2, 2014

    I'm excited to see where Angel & Faith goes under new management. I think it will take a few issues for Gischler and Conrad to sort through the remaining plot points from Season 9 before they can really nail down the path they want to take. The pixies took me a bit by surprise, but there's the same real emotion in these pages that previously fueled the book. These characters are deeply flawed, and unlike Buffy they don't have a support system in place in the form of several supportive friends. They're on their own and that's what makes them interesting.

    Angel and Faith Season 10 #1 therefore comes recommended. It might not be to everybodys liking but fans of the characters should definitely enjoy it, and itll be interesting to see how this series evolves in the next few months. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Cat Taylor Apr 5, 2014

    Plot wise, this issue isn't a strong season opener. If it were an episode of the television series, it would feel like a forgettable mid-season, non-sweeps, stand-alone episode. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Marykate Jasper Apr 4, 2014

    "Angel and Faith Season 10" #1 achieves its purpose in that it sets up a status quo and defines itself against the "Buffy" side of this multi-series universe. Now that it's free to develop its own stories, it will feel less like an offshoot of "Buffy" and more like its own animal. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - James McQueen Apr 1, 2014

    The Angel plot is better. London suits this vampire and, looking forward, Magic Town has a lot of potential for a variety of decent encounters. Its a shame the other series has leaned on it a little but Im sure it wont be too long until this finds its stride. Read Full Review
