    Actual rating 3.5 stars. The overarching story within these collected issues was more Connor centric, which keeps to the tone of the last collected volume and that pays off by the end of the final issue. I will say that a lot of the smaller plots were...random? The little plot lines that were introduced in each issue felt confusing as they weaved around the main story. They weren't focused on enough and ended too quickly (or not at all!) They could be leaving threads open to deal with later on bu Actual rating 3.5 stars.

I did like the fact that there was real world and mythos building and I can't wait to see what they do in the last few issues!

    I love Angel the TV series. I picked this up in the library, flicked through and decided the title was a coincidence. The main characters are that unrecognisable in every way. I quite liked the plethora of weird characters that are not in the Teeve version and it might read ok if I had read number one. I don't think it would ever be better than ok though and it certainly lacks the Joss' brilliance and subtlety. The artwork is average to bad. Average in that it is standard hack work graphics with I love Angel the TV series. I picked this up in the library, flicked through and decided the title was a coincidence.

Average in that it is standard hack work graphics with little inspiration. Bad in that Angel, Conner and Spike should not be so difficult to draw that they are unrecognisable. Quite odd really, several of the 'Fables' books are quite nicely drawn. I won't look for more.

    I couldn't even finish this. And I wouldn't read the last volume of IDW's Angel graphic novels because I disliked this so much. Spike didn't sound like Spike to me at all in this or the previous volume. I won't place this on my Goodreads shelf labeled "Whedon" because I love Joss Whedon and this just doesn't measure up. I'm relieved that Angel & co. are back at Dark Horse where they belong. I couldn't even finish this. And I wouldn't read the last volume of IDW's Angel graphic novels because I disliked this so much.

    Loved the story and many plots. Some were a bit conffusing and still are. The story made up for funky artwork too.

    Liked this one. Good story about Spikes soul. And Illyria is always entertaining. Interested in seeing what happens with the new watcher chick.

    In Angel: Crown Prince Syndrome Angel Investigations is betrayed by one of their own. James, who had claimed to be an angel, attacks new member of the team, Laura Weathermill, when she calls him out on his lie. James injures her and Angel considerably. The incident is interwoven with a letter between James and his sister, offering to buy Earth. Turns out James is one of a powerful alien family. Spike is having a soul problem. Conner is sought by multiple females, though none of them human. Later In Angel: Crown Prince Syndrome Angel Investigations is betrayed by one of their own.

Conner is sought by multiple females, though none of them human. Later in the volume, Charles Gunn makes an appearance. I am not quite sure of the chronology in the Buffyverse, but it is sometime after the end of the Angel television show. Everyone has a memory of hell, but also the belief that it did not happen. There are lots of new characters with whom I am not familiar and the plot lines were a bit thin. I found this volume kind of meh.

    Great storyline and so-so art. Angel meets his match in James, a demonic god masquerading as an Angelic emissary, who severs the vampire's feet and hands, temporarily disabling him. In the meantime, Illyria attempts to seduce Connor, igniting passion and lust in the members of Angel, Inc. The true mission of the female warrior demons worshipping and protecting Connor becomes clear. This volume also contains an interesting tale of Eddie Hope vs Charles Gunn. I very highly recommend this second bo Great storyline and so-so art.

    I wasn’t expecting any of this! Further adventure with Angel and crew. Connor taking center stage isn’t my fave but I enjoyed it. Bill Willingham continues to do good stuff. Spike gets a silly but funny subplot. And chapter 2 was hilarious.

    The story was decent, but the art was spotty in some places.

    Decent entry in this series while I churn through my backlog of humble bundle books, but nothing particularly memorable

    The weird thing about this volume is that it was super true to the tone of the show. The ending with Angel and Connor on the roof felt like something Joss would have put in there. Happily ever after but enough angst to make you want to pull out your hair.

I feel that Willingham has done the best he could due to the circumstances of the "original characters". I did really like the Spike arc in this volume. The possibility of Spike losing his soul was interesting. Although, not nearly as threatening as Angel losing his. Spike had adjusted to "doing good" without his soul and as long as he could do violence with Angel Investigations, could probably be talked into something like that again. However, Spike still has his soul, so there ends up being no reason to worry. I did like the end bit with Eddie. I liked that there was finally a connection made with Angel Investigations and Eddie got taken down for going after one of their own.

    I haven't finished this graphic novel before I had to leave Borders after the Patrick Rothfuss signing. Matt did and describe the rest to me. I was attracted to this mostly because Willingham (author of Fables) wrote it. I found the beginning very amusing with the effects of Illyria's pheromones. More confusion about the Jaro Hull and their obsession with Connor. I had to leave shortly after Angel and co. rescued Connor. While some new revelations, I don't think it's worth buying, but definitely I haven't finished this graphic novel before I had to leave Borders after the Patrick Rothfuss signing.

    There are a lot of good things about Willingham's run on Angel, he writes the characters well and often amusingly and he seems in general to have some good ideas for them, but somewhere the overarching story gets lost and I'm left with a feeling of not really caring what just happened or why. That's a real shame, this was something of a missed opportunity and it's also ultimately pretty missable reading. Still good fun for Angel fans, though.

    Overall I've been unimpressed with Willingham's run on Angel. His villains are interesting in the lead up, but anti-climatic when they finally make their move and are easily defeated. Unsurprisingly to anyone know knows me, Spike was my favorite part of this book and I'm actually excited to see how his plot of a tarnished soul leads him into Buffy Season 8 canon. Though I actually really enjoyed Connor too, unfortunately everyone else was kinda a hot mess. Overall I've been unimpressed with Willingham's run on Angel.

    There are a couple of places where character's made grand epiphanies, and reading the text I just couldn't see how they got there. It's like Willingham wrote the story too long and then had to go back and remove pages. Aside from that, it was fun to be back in the Angelverse and I truly enjoyed the final scenes between Angel and Connor. What can I say, I'm a sucker for anytime those two aren't trying to kill each other.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I'm not sure why but this series of Angel is my least favorite. They started off okay but then decided to almost rewrite the last book by killing off new characters (I actually found Dez interesting!) and then made others evil. Kind of annoying. Plus the characters just don't read the same, namely Angel. I'll keep pushing through just to finish I'm not sure why but this series of Angel is my least favorite.

    Connor's army show their true colours, and a demon tries to take over the world again. This is a very good plot with some great character moments. Illyria is feeling horny, Spike has a problem with his soul, and Angel is his usual self. This is fun, surprisingly so, after the first volume, this feels like the TV show. A very good read.

    Sadly, not as strong as Willingham's previous volume. There's still some fun here, and the characters still seem right, they just don't get as much time for characterization. The main problem is the plot, which is all over the place and gets really muddy in the last issue. And, we shall not even speak of the art, which is very uneven and has one horrid issue (#5).

    Usually when one of my questions about Angel's world is answered, three more questions arise. This installment answered a few questions, and didn't leave me hanging. The loose ends are coming together nicely. Usually when one of my questions about Angel's world is answered, three more questions arise.
