3.0 out of 5 stars It's all gone to Hell again 15 Aug 2010
By Andromeda Descendent TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I feared this would happen. Volume 5: Aftermath was a good bookend to the "Hell moment" storyline of After The Fall, and it seemed to point to the future. This largely unnecessary volume just drags the storyline out for all that it's worth. Vampire metaphors come easy here, and it hardly even feels like cliché to say that the series editors have sucked out every last drop out of the After The Fall franchise.

The good news - it starts off well enough, with an excellent Gunn storyline that sets up the equally excellent spin-off volume Only Human, and a suitably odd Drusilla story written by Juliet Landau herself. Five stars for these. But they make up less than half of this volume. The rest degenerates into farce as Angel and Spike visit a sci-fi convention and then for the remaining third of the book we get "the movie adaptation" of the Hell moment, with a Nicholas Cage lookalike spoofing Angel and spouting clichéd dialogue like he's possessed (and not by a demon, unless it's the demon of crap). I must be turning into the comic book guy from the Simpsons as words cannot express enough my ire for this stupid idea. After struggling my way through to the end of it I wanted to wash my brain out with industrial grade detergent. After The Fall is not famous enough to be spoofed, and whoever gave the go ahead for this self-indulgent rubbish owes me half my money back.

I'm a fan of the series though, so I couldn't bring myself to actually review this volume without knowing that the next one would be better. Luckily it is, and as the wyrm has finally stopped eating its tail, so to speak, I at last brought myself to write this review - knowing that even if this volume is a major league rip off, there is hope for the series from the very next volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars After the Aftermath 2 May 2014
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The stories from issues 23-27 of IDW's comic-book continuation of Joss Whedon's TV-series `Angel' is collected, along with the `Angel: Last Angel in Hell Annual', as Angel, Vol. 6: Last Angel in Hell (Angel (Numbered Hardcover)). These are excellent stories, with superb scripting/characterisation, and suitably good artwork. The Annual is drivel, however.

Issue #23 features Gunn and Illyria, and tells of Gunn's convalescence, accelerated by the demon Non, who wants Gunn up and about for her own nefarious purposes. This story continues in the mini-series Only Human - see Angel Omnibus Volume 2 TP.

Issues #24 & #25 feature Drusilla, who is locked away in a secret secure facility, where a secret group of conspirators are up to something. More fool them...

Issues #26 and #27 sees Angel, Spike and Groosalug visiting the San Francisco Sci-Fi Festival - "Rip off of the comic con" - where a magic sword that has killed Angel in the past has somehow got into the auction, and the gang want it back in case it gives someone the wrong idea. Also at the con is a trailer of the new film "Last Angel in Hell", the story of Angel and the recent holocaust in LA. There are also a crowd of `people' who want the sword and/or collect bounties on Spike and/or Angel. Throw in a couple of magicians who want to give ordinary people the chance to be the hero of their dreams, and you have an excellent comedy-adventure story.

`Angel: Last Angel in Hell Annual' is an adaptation of the spurious film glimpsed in the story from Issue #26.

3.0 out of 5 stars Comedic interlude 12 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover
This volume of Angel is like one of those comedic/light hearted episodes that Joss Whedon liked to throw in during a season. The Angel/Spike adventure was very funny but the Drusilla story just didn't do anything for me. I'm not sure what it added to the character and I've no real idea where Drusilla now stands in the Angelverse. The first story sets up the Gunn/Illyria Only Human book. The final story is a Hollywood version of After the Fall. It's funny but not as much as it could be. Finally I'm not sure what this volume did for the overall series. It didn't seem to follow up on the previous volume but as I said it was more a standalone lighthearted break.

Angel Volume 6 was my favourite part of the Angel series. Without giving away spoilers, it kept me hooked. A must read for any Angel fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to form 2 July 2010
By Drektath - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest comics I've seen in ages 28 May 2010
By Robert Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, but what was the point? 17 Jun 2010
By Joseph H. Trochez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
3.0 out of 5 stars pretty good 5 Feb 2014
By Tom C - Published on Amazon.com

Certainly not the worst of books after "After the Fall". It's a little bumpy at parts because of the inconsistent writing but the comic-con story makes up for it.
