Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When the Angel TV series continued officially in comic form I loved it and became a big fan. I'm not too blinkered to admit that when the series continued after the After The Fall storyline was resolved it was fun, but didn't truly feel like the TV series anymore. Then again, I was disappointed to see it end, partly because it was fun nevertheless and partly because I'd considered the whole Angel as Twilight revelation to be rubbish. (Who's with me?) I was intrigued to see where the new Angel and Faith series would go, and now with the second volume I have completely bought into the vision.

This new series sticks with the core characters of Angel and Faith and allows the writers and executive produced Joss Whedon to explore them emotionally as characters once again. The third character, and the one who binds the series together is the late Rupert Giles. Angel's guilt at killing him when possessed by Twilight and his singleminded determination to bring him back is one side of the coin, with Faith trying to save him the same way he saved her as the other. In this volume we meet up with Drusilla again, but not the same Drusilla that we're used to. Faith's estranged father also turns up. The story is more about the issues people have (hence this volume's title) than who can draw the biggest and ugliest looking monster for them to slay whilst wisecracking. Faith goes on an emotional journey in this book and it's satisfyingly believable, and very obvious that Joss Whedon is steering this ship.

To me, this volume is the closest to the feel of the TV series as any of the comic series of the Buffyverse that have gone before.

Format: Paperback
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.

This particular volume, "Volume 2", collects issues 6 through 10 of the Angel & Faith branch of Buffy Season 9. This set of collected issues is generally referred to as "Daddy Issues". (The first 5 issues are collected as Volume 1, "Live Through This".) The "Daddy Issues" arc has been written by Christos George, but has been executive produced by Joss Wheedon and is considered part of the Buffy canon.

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, accessible for part-time fans, 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.

We run into a number of interesting villains, some villains who are actually good guys, and a lot of smarty-pants types, (like Giles' relatives), who turn out to be O.K.

Format: Paperback
The stories running through issues #6-10 of Dark Horse Comics' series `Angel and Faith' are collected as Angel & Faith Vol. 2: Daddy Issues (Dark Horse). The title story is issues #6-9, and issue #10 features a sort-of stand-alone story featuring Giles' (Great) Aunts Lavinia and Sophronia, though the major sub-plots are continued and developed in it, mixed in with the comedy. The scripting is excellent, and you can hear Giles' voice in the flashback scenes. The art is very good, and suits the story very well. This is an excellent chapter in the saga.

THE SPOILER ZONE
This story opens with a flashback to Giles' graduating mission as a Watcher, which is gatecrashed by a demon, with unfortunate results. This leads to a break with his father, also a Watcher - issue #1. The demon resurfaces in the modern day, working for Drusilla, Angel's `daughter' - issue #2. Faith's father comes to visit - issue #3. All these strands are mixed together, along with the fact that Angel has acquired a talisman that allows him to collect pieces of Giles' soul - one of which the demon has stashed away - and the story concludes with another step forward in terms of character development for the main stars.

Issue #10 sees Giles' Great Aunts visiting. They have been making deals with various demons over the years, and now that Angel has destroyed magic (see Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8) they have come to collect payment. The Aunts hold Angel responsible for their predicament, and he and Faith have to deal with the consequences. They also approve of Angel's plan to resurrect Giles, and provide some assistance to his endeavour.
