Angel & Faith Volume 2: Daddy Issues by Christos Gage

Daddy Issues by Christos Gage
2012, Dark Horse
Series: Volume 2 of Angel & Faith


Synopsis: The dark streets of London are increasingly dangerous as murderers, mystically devoid of emotion, begin to impact the lives of Angel and Faith. In unraveling this new mystery, the pair follow clues in the Watcher’s Files to a demon from Giles’s past and a “child” from Angel’s. Then, Drusilla returns to her homeland and becomes the hot new vampire in the underground scene! While Angel faces Dru, Faith must deal with issues that reawaken her inner turmoil—a visit from her deadbeat dad, who’s looking for a favor, and a troubled Slayer hell bent on revenge.

The Good: I enjoy Faith a lot more in this comic series than I ever did on Buffy. Here, we see her deal with her father. I'd imagined a man quite a bit worse based on Faith's multitude of issues, but he works with story line well. Angel and Faith work surprisingly well together, making the series continue to be a pleasurable read.

The Bad: I never liked Drusilla. Still don't, actually. She comes back in this volume and messes with her vampire daddy - Angel. We get a bit more backstory on his turning her, but it was mostly a rehash of already known information.
