As you know, I’m a huge Angel fan. For more information on this series, check out my first Angel & Faith review. Angel & Faith #22 (Steve Morris cover) starts off with a bang and ends with a ferocious cliffhanger. It’s clear that this is leading up to the final battle, and I can’t wait. We also have a lovely new twist that I think will add some zest to the character of Giles, so I’m interested to see how that will play out in this and other series in the Buffyverse.
The art was just gorgeous this time around. Rebekah Isaacs has such a talent for clothes, postures, and negative space. Her ability to convey so much feeling just in body posture is reminiscent of Whedon’s ability to have characters express feelings with made-up words. This was a great read, and if you’re a fan of the series, or Angel in general, you need to hop on this train before the final issue!
Angel’s plan to resurrect Rupert Giles has come to fruition—just not exactly as everyone had expected. But they’ll have to deal with the fallout from that later. Right now, Angel and Faith need all the help they can get to defeat Whistler, Pearl, Nash, and their plan to overhaul life on earth with a magical virus!
