Angel & Faith: Live Through This by Christos Gage

Angel & Faith: Live Through This by Christos Gage
2012, Dark Horse
Series: Book 1 of Angel & Faith

Synopsis: Angel has made bad choices in his life. Most recently? While possessed, he killed Giles. However, he believes he's found a way to make amends, by bringing the Watcher back from the grave! Cue Faith—rebel Slayer, and Angel's only ally—who only supports this harebrained scheme in order to keep her friend from catatonia. New threats emerge as this unlikely duo struggles against real and personal demons alike, while hitting the dark streets of London! Collects Angel & Faith issues #1–#5, the Live through This arc, and issue #6, the In Perfect Harmony one-shot.

Why read: Love Angel.

What impressed me: More Angel! Yep, that's about it.

What disappointed me: This is a decent continuation of Angel's story, but without Buffy or even his old friends from the series, things are dry. Faith just doesn't make the greatest partner to carry the series. The storyline was sort of ridiculous. Angel wanting to bring Giles back from the dead. As heartbroken as I was when Giles died, the entire idea just seems sadly like grasping at straws.

Recommended: Only if you really need an Angel fix.

Continue series: Yes, but only because I do, in fact, need an Angel fix.
