Just Like the Show Mar 18, 2007
As the titles says, I feel like I'm watching an episode of "Angel." The characters are captured perfectly--though Gunn oddly gets (if I'm not mistaken) no speaking lines, and just stands around. However, Tipton has got Spike down beautifully. Well, except for the three times he says "rasslin'."
Besides that little blunder, "Spike: Old Wounds" is smooth from beginning to end. The photo-realistic art is a welcome change from the art of "Spike vs. Dracula" and "Angel: Old Friends." The combination of the dialogue's crispness and the art makes me hear the actors voices in my head as I read. I knew I had found something special on the fourth page, when there is a simple panel shown of the Wolfram and Hart sign and building. It's such a classic testament to the fifth season of Angel that it makes you feel like you're just seeing another episode. And that's exactly what I want when reading an Angel or Buffy comic.
Reader's Note: This comic takes place between episodes nine ("Harm's Way") and ten ("Soul Purpose") of the fifth season of Angel.
Side Note: Joss Whedon is in talks with the writer of "Spike: Asylum" about doing a canonical sixth season of Angel with IDW Comics. This is clearly inspired by the recent "eighth season" of Buffy that Joss is doing for Dark Horse. This is exciting news!
