3.0 out of 5 stars Gets better towards the end Aug. 11 2011
By Andy Shuping - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
ARC copy provided by NetGalley

Do you love the Angel TV series? Do you worship at the altar of Joss Whedon? Then this may just be the book for you. It takes place in the Angel world at the beginning of season 1 and just before season 2. Read as Angel and his team take on and solve a variety of mysteries, crimes, and do their best to save the world.

I'm a huge fan of the Angel TV series and the book is...mildly disappointing. They write in the intro that they really started the comic a bit too soon (it premiered right around the TV show came out) so none of the characters and concepts that made the show great were quite settled yet. For example, they depict Doyle in the comic strip and as fans of the show know he was killed off early in the first season. And its clear that the writers of the comic didn't know this was happening...as such his death is a bit rushed and it ends up affecting the writing for the rest of the issues as they try to play catch up to the TV series. And as such many events feel forced or just not explained, such as Wes and Gunn joining up. If you've watched all of the TV episodes you know where they come from, but if you're a casual watcher you'd be confused. That being said most of the writing is pretty sound and you can picture the characters saying the things that they do and the stories are fairly decent as well. And the last issue the writing is spectacular because Joss Whedon himself took the helm to pose the question...what if Angel wasn't really mean to be the only vampire with a soul?

The artwork of the series to me, leaves a little something to be desired. The covers in many places are quite creepy and don't look like Angel at all. For example he has red glowing eyes in some of the depictions and in others he appears to have a beard and be of non-European descent. And in some places they just do a bad job of depicting emotions and the human form. In the first issue Cordy says "ewwww" to seeing a dead body, one that was supposed to have been pretty brutally killed, but the body as depicted looks the character is sleeping. No cuts, no blood...nothing. Just a body laying on the floor in repose.

Taken issue by issue it leaves something to be desired, at least for me because I'm a big fan of the show. Taken overall as a whole it isn't bad and fans of the show may still enjoy seeing the characters in different tales, especially the last issue which was written by Joss Whedon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Makes me miss the show Nov. 29 2011
By VampireNovelFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
*ARC Provided by NetGalley*

This Angel omnibus includes 12 stories, so you definitely get your fill. It's like a marathon. I enjoyed the dialogue, pacing, and action, but the art could have been better. The coloring was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. In terms of proportions and character design, there wasn't always a good consistency, so at best I was indifferent about reading the story in this form since I didn't necessarily like or hate looking at it. It should sell because of its title, but if it was a relatively unknown series, the art itself wouldn't compel me to pick it up.

All in all, I think that if you enjoy urban fantasy and enjoyed the Angel series, you might enjoy this. I watched the show occasionally, so I am not quite a die hard fanatic, but I can say from experience that I don't always enjoy every medium for a series I like. Because of that I can't guarantee that Angel fans would like this. I just know that when it comes to the story, it is good enough for me to want to read more installments.
