Angel aftermath suffers from 1 major problem, Its set right after the after the fall series. The story itself is rather interesting, a few twists and turn, some nice new characters and good character development that follows naturally from the last few issues. The return of a few old faces back into the mix is great and show that Angel can be great without the other main characters we all know and love as there MIA for a few reasons (Gunn and Illyria have there own spin-off, only human, and spike is just... well he's not there) this is good as it lets returning faces like Kate Shine and the new characters like Dez not feel undermined. Also the story adds a lot to the established Buffyverse mythos if your a fan of knowing everything and anything about the universe. If this story was read alone it would shine as a hidden gem, the problem though is that after the previous few issues the story just cant stand up to the fantastic run of after the fall, so if you've just read them you might feel a little let down as the story returns to a more grounded and slower pace. Overall its a good story which serves as some great filler until they decide where to go next.
Oh and it looks pretty awesome to, different but still awesome.
