Springing out of Joss Whedon's Angel: After the Fall story line, novelist Kelley Armstrong (The Summoning) comes aboard to explore the many repercussions following the explosive last issue of Angel: After the Fall. Artist Dave Ross also comes aboard to present the first arc of "Aftermath," wherein we learn who lived, who died, and who will be forever changed from the experience.

First off, I hate the artwork. None of the characters are recognizable and half the time Angel looks like a Hulked-out vampire. Blerg. I like that Gwen, Kate and Connor are in this and I like the additions of Dez and Jamaerah. Not sure what’s up with the Elohim and the Potentates, but I’m looking forward to seeing where this is heading. As long as it’s drawn by someone else. Because I hate when characters are unrecognizable. It’s too frustrating.
I never rate things zero stars.
But this is an Angel story with actual Angels. Um, whut? No stars for you for misunderstanding the Buffyverse so badly.
Damn, this is torture, but I'm enough of a Whedonista to read the rest of the series. Only one more volume. I hope my soul doesn't wither away at the mere thought of getting through yet another volume. On one hand, it's a little - a very little - gratifying to see this play out since I've heard so much about it, but yuck. Just yuck.
