Angel Season Eleven #5 comic reviewSent by Illyria through time into the vampire’s past, Angel and Fred find themselves on a ship bound for the new world where its crew is being picked off by Angelus and Darla. As with the first opening arc, this isn’t a walk down memory lane where Fred and Angel are observers to events, instead the pair are active in the timestream and able to make changes to the past.

While Angel is able to avoid being seeing by either Darla or his less soul-filled self, Fred isn’t so lucky. Seeking out the rumored magical item on the ship, Fred is able to find it but both vampires also find her. So how does Angel save his friend without directly confronting himself and possibly making large changes to the timeline (as you’d think Darla and Angelus would remembering running into an Angel with a soul)?

After an ambush by some of the less-pleasant inhabitants working for the guards, Buffy begins to suspect something wicked behind the scenes of the already unpleasant situation. With the help of Willow, the Slayer and her bestie sneak into the heavily-locked-down area in the camp learn more. What they find will force them to make some difficult choices in the days to come.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #6 is a turning point in the shortened season. Now that Buffy knows that the government is looking for ways to drain all magical creatures (which would kill Spike and countless others), she’s going to need a plan.

Angel Season Eleven #3 comic reviewStuck deep in the past during the age of Old Ones where a far-less-attractive version of Illyria battled another ancient evil creature, Angel and Fred struggle to get a handle on why her alter-ego brought them to this time and place and what they can do to survive and make it home safely.

While Illyria comes and goes, occasionally putting Fred in the middle of danger, Angel discovers a bit about the arrival of a second Old One and what began the fight between the two giants.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #3 comic reviewI’m not sure if Joss Whedon and his comic team anticipated a Trump presidency when laying out the events for the Eleventh Season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or not, but it’s certainly timely. As the government begins making good on their threats, demons and witches are rounded up to relocation camps. Much of the issue deals with the team’s various attempts to protect its younger members, but when the shit hits the fan and a Slayer arrives to forcibly remove Willow and Spike things get real.

Willing to fight to protect her family and friends, Buffy is talked down from starting a revolution by Willow. Choosing to go with her best friend and Spike, Buffy says farewell to the rest of the Scoobies and begins a new journey.
