    This series goes out excellently and I will buy any book by any of these creators. If they should reunite for a future series, nothing will stop me from buying it. This issue, like the ones before it, are gold. Everyone has created magic on this series. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    "Angel & Faith" #25 was a great conclusion to a series that will be genuinely missed. All of the other "Buffyverse" comics over the years have had ups and downs, but credit to Gage and Isaacs: this has been a remarkably consistent and good comic. I wish all licensed books took this much care. In the meantime, next time Gage and Isaacs work on a comic, I'll be first in line to buy it, no questions asked. Gage and Isaacs have created a comic that all future "Buffy" creators should use as a model. Well done. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy Aug 28, 2013

    As a series ending goes, this was a great one. There was close to this series, which operated in parallel with its sibling title, but did not require a “TO BE CONTINUED IN” which forced readers to jump to that title. This was a standalone series which could be read on its own, but could be enjoyed even more if readingBuffy as well as theWillow andSpike miniseries that were published during this book's tenure. And although we are nearing the end of the Season 9 stories, we know that Season 10 is just around the corner. We don't know what form it will take just yet, but it is coming. And I am looking forward to when season 10 shows up on my shelves. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 28, 2013

    Angel & Faith #25 is a fitting conclusion that's not perfect but the creative team does more than enough to bring things to a proper close. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Aug 28, 2013

    It was a fantastic 25 issue run that was fun for 2 years but the timing seems perfect as it ends. While the potential for Angel to carry out on a solo series is there, it could easily turn redundant and ring too similar to his television show as he helps the helpless but with an open ending like this, it finishes on a positive note. Doors are opened and possibilities are endless within the universe. Of course there’s a lot of rhetoric about making tough decisions and the strongest thing we can do is keep living no matter what life throws at us and it’s all fairly uplifting and mildly cliché in Buffyverse fashion. It’s a solid end to a solid series. Read Full Review

    Nonetheless the post-action denouement is well drawn and has some enjoyable character moments. While the dialogue can occasionally be too on the nose or, briefly, overly saccharine, the conclusion manages to be both logical and full of promise for future stories. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 30, 2013

    The best parts of the issue are in the details, and there is a nice tie-in to the Buffy Season 9 comic as Faith considers a job offer working for Kennedy in her security agency (staffed by former slayers, one might recall) but things never quite get up to speed for me. I really appreciate that the big fighty-fighty wasn't the only focus of this last issue, and honestly prefer that we got to see more of the aftermath, but the way this issue breaks down really undermines the seriousness of the threat that we spent two years establishing. It's a good issue, but one that doesn't quite give me the emotional punch that I was looking for, while the decisions of our three lead characters to go their separate way feels less than organic, more like an editorial decision to set up the next season of stories.
