Comic Book Review: ANGEL #44

ANGEL Issue #44 | ©2011 IDW

Writer: David Tischman and Mariah Huehner Penciler: Elena Casagrande Cover Artist: Elena Casagrande Distributor: IDW Well Angel and most of his crew survived AFTER THE FALL, and starting with issue #18 the series was simply re-named ANGEL. That was pretty much the point I lost interest in this series. Once Joss Whedon was no longer directly involved this series because the typical bad-genre spin-off comic book that has happened a hundred times over. The stories were weak and spread out, new useless characters were brought in, then killed off, or worse off they stuck around – and then the whole […]Read On »

For the most part “Season Eight” has […]Read On »
