After the extreme disaster that was Angel Volume 5, this is a welcome return to form. The book consists of 4 stories.

1: Gunna and Illyria doing some soul searching--4 stars. The artworks leaves something to be desired in that it doesn't convey the story all the clearly. The writing is very well done, however.

2: Drusilla (slightly before "the fall")--5 stars. Juliet Landau captures the character perfectly with her writing. The art is pretty good too. One of the two main highlights of this volume.

3: Angel and Spike at a comic/sci-fi convention--5 stars. If you enjoy Spike making fun of Angel (with a twist in this story), you'll love this story. The artwork is pretty good, the writing is superb. In my opinion, the funniest Angel story since Smile Time.

4: Last Angel in Hell (an extremely bastardized version of Angel's after the fall storyline as it might be revamped by Hollywood).--4 stars. Don't expect to see any of the regular gang here, as this is what Angel's story might look like after a team of idiotic Hollywood producers put their imprint on it. Pretty funny.

For any discouraged after volume 5 (very understandable), rest assured that none of Armstrong's writing from that story line has any serious impact on this set.

I've not always been a big fan of the Angel comics and really didn't care for the whole descent of L.A. into hell arc. Since then, however, I've loved just about everything that has taken place in the Angel universe. The pretext here is that everyone in L.A. retains memories of the alternative Los Angeles and due to those memories Angel is both a huge hero and a celebrated . . . well, celebrity. In fact, the whole Angel saga is made into a movie starring Nicholas Cage as Angel and Jorge Garcia (Hurley from LOST), and Spike is a chick! The whole thing is riotously funny.

On and off I've toyed with cancelling my subscription to Angel at my local comic store, but this comic combined with some of the Illyria arcs and the wonderful but soon-to-end Bill Willingham run have made me give the comic a couple of extra chances.

Even if you haven't been keeping up with Angel of late, you need to check this comic out. I can't remember the last time I laughed this hard reading a comic.

The story arc presented in volume 5 was no where present in this volume. Instead we get a bunch of random side quests with no real connection to each other. The first part is just a build up for Angel: Only Human. The next part is a crazy Drusilla story that confused the hell out of me. The last 2 do share one thing in common and that is the movie adaption of the first 4 volumes. One being just a quick scene from it at a comic con and the final short story was the final act of the movie. None of these move the arc forward started in volume 5. Only one out of the 4 have Angel in it. Even though I was disappointed that this stalled the story I am giving this 4 stars because it entertained me through out. The dialog was witty and had me busting a gut at some parts. The comic con was my favorite because it introduces us to the movie that stars nick cage as Angel, Hurly as gun and Spike is Angel's female love interest. Also it brought back the device that turns you into what ever custume your dressed in. Spike's transformation is worth the price of this graphic novel alone. I thought the movie was really funny but by the end I could not help thinking "what was the point". In closing you should get this knowing that it's a collection of random short stories which are very funny but does not move the plot forward.

I didn't like this book that much. The gunn and illyria section was ok, made me think the spin off might be worth it. The Drusilla storyline was excellent, the best of this book, unfortunately it was too short. The spike and angel at comic con was ok, not all that funny, and it was a retread of the buffy plot where the same exact thing happened. I also didn't find the movie storyline funny at all, and eventually wondered why I was reading it since it didn't have the characters I like or a plot that will matter in future stories. I didn't finish it. These angel books are just no where near as good as buffy season 8.

Ugh thank GOD we returned with Brian Lynch & a crew that doesn't involve the horrid creators of Angel: Aftermath. This one is amazing! I love Bryan Lynch so much, he understands the Whedon witty repertoire and makes everything so hilarious. The Comic-Con costume story (which reminisce of the Buffy halloween episode) is the funniest, because Lynch has depicted Spike and his feelings towards Angel so perfectly in everything he's written. He actually has a great grasp on all of the characters & is the true MVP of this series up to this point. However, Juliet Landau was amazing in writing the Drusilla story. She does a great job depicting a ruthless, crazy powerful & prophetic Drusilla that we sometimes didn't get to see in the show, at least at its full glory. All of the stories in this really saved the series after Aftermath took it south & is my favorite so far. It feels episodic, like the series, but still progresses the main storyline that ended after the fall. I highly recommend!
