Angel: The Curse Reviews
Angel travelers to Romania in search for Clan Kalderashto to ask them to amend the Ritual of Restoration to allow him happiness without losing his soul.It's been ages since I saw the TV-series or read an Angel book so it was nice to find Angel graphic novels on Scribd. I actually don't have time for reading graphic novels right now since I need to finish some books. But boy it's nice to take a break from all the books to read a graphic novel instead.I liked the story in Angel: The Curse. As usual nothing goes as Angel wants because the clan Kalderashto is fighting the regime of Corneliu Brasov. Angel needs to help them fight Brasov to get to Natalya Kalderash because she is the only one that can help him with the curse...Review also posted on And Now for Something Completely Different and It's a Mad Mad World
So, Angel goes to Romania to try to get that pesky part of his curse lifted.... I'm not sure quite how (or if) this fits in with the continuity of the Dark Horse post-screen seasons of Buffy & Angel, but it's not a bad story. There are a couple of questionable points (such as there's a Cordelia poster on the hide-out wall, apparently for no reason other than they wanted a Cordy reference), but it's a quick, fun read with nicely average art. It's one of those books you just have to go with for a little while and not ask too many questions.
I was excited to read this comic, because it takes place after the series finale. As such, I thought it would be more "real." I don't read novels based on the series because they aren't canon. Meaning, anything that happens in a Buffyverse novel is trumped by stuff on the show. Since this story came out after, I thought they could really go somewhere with it.Nope.It was interesting to see how other characters were addressed, but the only character we know in this is Angel himself, so all we learn post-season 5 is that Angel survived. The story's a fun read, but it brings nothing new to the table.
A esta altura, no puedo asegurar de que se trate de un mal comic porque recuerdo más bien poco. Sí puedo afirmar que recuerdo haberme perdido a mitad de la historia, y que me importó más bien poco.Quedará pendiente para alguna relectura maratónica de algún omnibus de Angel, llegado el caso...
The continuation of the Angel story line in comic book form. I was pretty happy about it, good story, and I love seeing my favorite characters continue on.
good action and those quirky thoughts of Angel, but was hoping this would finally close that unresolved show ending. Stop hinting at the "hell" that happened and tell us!
