    All of the stories and images are meshed together with great skill. The cuts back and forth flow well, blending into one another beautifully as well as moving each piece of the story along at a nice pace. My favorite part of the start of the issue is a nod to Hitchhiker's Guide. I do love the pop culture references that always show up in the Buffyverse stories. With a new demon to chase and the ghosts of their past coming back into their lives, this really is a great place to jump into the fray. When you add in the fabulous flashback bringing new insights into the story of Giles' past, it's an issue not to be missed. Read Full Review

    Family and responsibility are some of the stronger themes running through these character, and both the flashback scenes with Giles and the perfectly "squee"-worthy issue ender only reinforce these themes. Really, the only thing that prevents this from being a perfect comic is the rather dense knowledge of Buffyverse that's required. However, if you haven't been reading the adventures of Buffy's darker half on the other side of the pond, then you really are missing the best stuff since the halcyon days of the WB Network. So get the reading! Read Full Review

    Gage and Isaacs whip up a particularly delicious conclusion to "Angel & Faith" #6; it's a moment that in retrospect we should have seen coming, even as it reveals itself on the final page with a bit of surprise. It's a clever development, one that will excite a lot of readers. It's a good usage of the comic book serial format, and all in all wraps up another strong issue. If you were a fan of the television show or even just the "Angel: After the Fall" comic, definitely check out "Angel & Faith." So far, it hasn't disappointed. Read Full Review
