I knew not to expect too much from having looked at the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics, but even then this was a disappointment. Mostly I keep wondering "Where's the plot? Surely they didn't forget to invent a plot?" Apparently they did.
The art is pretty wobbly too, I didn't even recognize some of the characters, I had to figure out who they were by looking for a place where someone addressed them by name. The line art is so messy and rough (it looks like a first draft, IMO) it is practically painful to look at, and the drawing of faces is so... blobby and misshapen. The characterizations are the only thing that worked out.
I was very irritated by the fact that a third of this slim book is drawings and a script for the comic of all ridiculous things. Talk about padding your book with filler!
Recommended for die-hard Angel fans only, no one else needs this torture.
