4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Families. No, really. 28 April 2014
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The stories running through issues #11-15 of Dark Horse Comics’ series ‘Angel and Faith’ are collected as Angel & Faith Volume 3: Family Reunion. The title story is in issues #10-14, and issue #15 is a sort of stand-alone story in which Angel meets up with Whistler for a chat, and we get some background to Whistler’s life and why he is currently doing what he is doing, as well as a flashback to the birth and early life of Pearl and Nash. The main story is the continuation of Angel’s quest to resurrect Giles. This time, Willow is on-side, and in exchange for the loan of Connor, she will donate another piece of Giles’ soul. Willow needs to visit the dimension of Quor’toth, where Connor grew up, and Angel reluctantly accompanies her and Faith to LA to see if he’ll help. Naturally, things don’t go according to plan (e.g. Dark Willow vs. Vampire Angel), and while the team are away, the mice, in this case Giles’ Aunts, who are house sitting, go out to play, only to run into Whistler, who now has Pearl and Nash working for him.

The scripting is excellent, and you can hear the TV character’s voices in the dialogue. The art is very good, and suits the story very well. This is a very good chapter in the current saga, with plenty of character development as well as action and filling-in of background to the TV series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Especially Good for the Casual Fan 23 April 2013
By Pop Bop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm passingly familiar with the Buffyverse, in that I know who Buffy is, along with Giles and the Scooby gang, and so on. I know the back story for the appearance and eventual spin-off of Angel. That's certainly enough to get you in to this collected volume, especially since this book revolves around Angel, his son Connor, and Willow.

This particular volume, "Volume 3" collects issues 11 through 15 of the Angel & Faith branch of Buffy Season 9. This set of collected issues is generally referred to as "Family Reunion". (The first 5 issues are collected as Volume 1, "Live Through This". The second volume of issues 6 through 10 is titled "Daddy Issues".) The "Daddy Issues" arc was written by Christos George, but has been executive produced by Joss Wheedon and is considered part of the Buffy canon. The same is true for this Volume 3.

Now, with that background, the question is - do you want to read this? For me, the answer is definitely yes. Of course, if you are a hard-core fan or a completist you have to read this. If you are a casual or passing fan, like me, the question turns on risk/reward. How hard do I want to work to get up to speed and what's the payoff if I do commit?

Well, the story is compelling and accessible for part-time fans, and is entertaining and satisfying. Angel is a more engaging and attractive lead character than I would have expected, and Faith, the rogue slayer, is a lot more interesting and a lot less angst ridden and whiney than I anticipated. There is a lot of narrative bobbing and weaving before the story settles down and goes somewhere, but not too much and not to the point of exasperation.

Willow needs Angel's son to get her into hell, (Quor'toth), where she will try to revive her magic. Angel needs Willow to help him connect with a powerful object that will aid in his effort to return Giles. Angel also needs to reconnect with Connor, his quasi-abandoned son. Faith is pretty much along for the ride in this story arc.

And it all works. Willow is compelling and sympathetic. Angel has it together and thinks and acts like a hero. Connor is probably the most balanced and mentally stable character in the Buffyverse. They have a heck of an exciting trip to hell, and it all works and makes sense.

And then as a treat, Whistler shows up at the end and steals the whole book. He's a part demon who is responsible for keeping good and evil in balance, and he has presence and charisma to burn. Even if the preceding story wasn't good, which it is, his appearance and his story are worth the price of the book.

So, you have a coherent story with a beginning, a middle, and a satisfying end. All of the characters behave themselves and shine in their own ways. You get bonus footage of secondary characters who threaten to steal the show. How can this be bad?

The drawing is very effective and has a lot of pizzazz and expression, without detracting from the storyline. Most of the humor is a bit understated, and is the more satisfying for it.

So, if you would like a little fix from the Buffyverse, this would seem to be a good choice.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to the author or the publisher of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The excellence of this series continues 17 April 2013
By Chris Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
REVIEW COURTESY OF ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY

I don't think I've ever replied to an email faster than I did when Abigail sent one out asking if anyone wanted to review comics set in the Buffyverse. I've been a fan of the show since the first episode aired and I may be a little (scarily, if you ask my fiancé) obsessed. Needless to say I should probably put a big disclaimer at the top of any of these reviews that says something like "Warning: This review is totally biased" because yeah. They are. I'm a Whedon fanboy and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

Anyway.

Lots of stuff going stuff going on in this collection. Angel is still working on finding a way to resurrect Giles, Faith is still Faith and Willow drops by to rope them both in to helping her on her quest to restore magic to Earth. Whew. Like I said, there's a lot going on. Thankfully each issue contained in this collection feels just like an episode of Angel or Buffy. Gage has such a knack for the dialogue of the various characters that I had to check and make sure he wasn't one of the writers of the show. He wasn't, and I knew that, but it sure feels like he was. My favorite line of his takes place at the very start of the collection:

Willow: Faith.

Faith: Wil. Everybody good?

Willow: Still alive. Still wacky. You?

Faith: Y'know. Brooding, bad decisions, violence. Rinse and repeat.

I could literally hear Alyson Hannigan and Eliza Dushku saying those lines. If that's not a sign of good writing, I don't know what is. I also really, really like Rebekah Isaacs' artwork. Everybody looks just how you'd expect them to look in a comic book. Her work never feels cartoonish and fits Gage's writing to a `T'. I wish she could do the art for every book set in the Buffyverse, because the same can't be said for the artwork in some of the others.

I could ramble on and happily recap everything that has happened previously in this series (or in all of the comics series set in this world), but I'll end this review and simply say that if you're a fan of the series you really should track down copies of the trade paperbacks for Season 8 and Season 9. They get a little crazy (especially Season 8!), but it makes me happy to just know the story is still being told.

This is feeling more like the old series than Buffy season 9 at the mo. Excellent dialogue and ideas. Really entertaining

The only fault I had with it was that it was too short. Loved the interaction between Angel and Willow.
