    Considering there has been some build up to revealing what exactly happened after "Not Fade Away", I'm not so sure an arc of anthology stories that breaks up a larger storyline is the best way to tell these stories. I'm willing to go along with Brian Lynch on this, but this issue feels a bit shallow due to the anthology format. I look forward to see how the overall story flows when the story is completed, but for right now it seems to me like they came up with the idea to do this after they started the miniseries, and it seems like a very disjointed way to tell what should theoretically be straightforward. At the very least, "First Night" will be of interest to fans of the television series, since it doesn't require any knowledge of the comics to understand what is going on. Read Full Review

    The sixth issue Angel: After the Fall is a quick, entertaining read. While it will probably be frustrating for readers who want to see the story moved forward, it does make for a fun divergent from the past five issues. Read Full Review

    Next issue will presumably go some way towards answering the series other big mysteries -- why Gunn's a vampire, and why Angel isn't -- and while those mysteries are compelling enough, it's taken a while for the series to get to that stage. I'm cautiously optimistic, as the series has only been improving with each issue, but with the short-story format, this arc is prone to more variable in quality that could yet damage its chances of holding on to readers.

    I really just wanted to read and see what happened after the last episode of Angel on season 5, like they promised, but I'll just have to keep on waiting for the payoff. Sigh. Read Full Review
