Reviews - What do customers think about Angel: Old Friends (Graphic Novel) (Angel (IDW Publishing))?

Graphic SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
This story is post battle in the alley at the end of the last season. Angel has been off doing a hermit thing, and Gunn has come to track him down. He has a problem in Los Angeles he needs his help with, and cannot handle alone (of course).

The problem he has seen is Spike, running around slaughtering things. That piques his interest. An evil twin and mad scientist plot ensues.

Angel Hits the Books  Apr 26, 2007

Before I start, I have to address this... A lot of people are complaining that the final battle of "Not Fade Away" was addressed in this book. IDW Publishing is not ALLOWED to address that in this series of comics. These comics are not canon--an official canon Season Six of Angel will eventually be released through IDW Publishing and will be written by Joss Whedon and Brian Lynch (writer of Spike: Asylum). THAT will surely address the battle. But for now, just enjoy the comics, because you won't be getting an official answer.

Ahhh. That felt good. And now for my review of "ANGEL: Old Friends."

THE WRITING... was good in some parts, and really bad in others. The Cordy-duplicate scene was awkward and strange, and the resolution of the whole comic (the most important part of the story) was rushed and very weird. Mariotte seems like he knows the characters, but it's almost as if he's trying too hard. Illyria also arrives for a few scenes, and then she just decides to leave. The above all make this comic an imperfect read. Mariotte does, however, shine in certain parts. Gunn and Angel's conversation in the first scene is very well done, and the last page of the comic makes me feel as if I'm watching the show. And that's really the point of the whole thing. Lorne's scenes are well done, as well as Spike (most of the time).

THE ART... was good enough, but nothing to write home about. Everyone looks roughly like themselves--though Illyria is suddenly vuluptous. Didn't she take over the body of cute/thin Fred? Looks like artist David Messina decided our blue-haired beauty was due for some enhancement. That was kind of off-putting. Lorne and Cordy are perfect in this, however.

This comic, despite the negatives I listed, is a good read. Without new episodes of Angel or Buffy on television any more, comics are our only medium. And until Angel: Season Six comes out from IDW, I will continue to support them by buying their ANGEL and SPIKE comics and TPBs. All Buffyverse fans should do the same.

not much of an explanation  Nov 3, 2006
Overall, I enjoyed this book. What left me scratching my head a bit was how it was supposed to "explain" the events following the final TV episode but only left me asking what happened. How did the characters survive the final conflict? The only real acknowledgement that something had happened was that Wesley was gone and Charles had an eyepatch.

I'd like to know how the battle was fought and how they all survived - is that too much to ask?

Also, in future work I'd like to see a little less nose on the characters.
Angel and Spike..hmmmmmmm..  Aug 4, 2006
Didn't know it was gonna be a "comic" book. My fault for not reading the description...but it was great. Any book/comic book/movie..etc that has both Angel and for me.
Angel Family Reunion  Jul 31, 2006
In Angel: Old Friends we get to see the gang back together, attempting to find out whos making doubles of everybody, evil doubles! Its nice to see that they survived the events of the TV series finale, however it ends with many unanswered questions other than the ones concerning the results of that apocalyptic battle in "Not Fade Away". This would be a welcome addition to the libraries of longtime fans, but unlike Angel: The Curse, this can only be fully appreciated by those who know their trivia. The artwork is great and sets the mood very well, however the story would not have made a great episode. Not recomended for the story, but if your interested in finding out how everybodys doing, pick it up.
