I can’t wait to see where we go from last issue’s cliffhanger ending (spoilers) that saw someone or something in Gile’s body claiming to know a lot about resurrection. Whether this twist is a good or bad thing for Angel’s quest to revive the former watcher is anyone’s guess. More to talk about after the description…
Angel and Faith #17
Official Description: Longtime nemesis Ethan Rayne has set the final piece of Giles’s soul practically in Angel’s lap. To complicate things further, the loss of a Slayer has sent Nadira and her group into the fray with their sights set on Angel now more than ever! Coincides with events in Buffy Season 9.
The last time we saw Gile’s friend turned foe was in Dark Horse Comic’ s Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 where he helped Buffy and seemingly died in the process. Could the villain have found a way to save himself through Gile’s corpse? It should be interesting to see how this plays out and even more so how it connections to the current storyline that is running through Buffy (spoilers– where Angel’s former love is face to face with Illyria).
The issue went on sale last week from Dark Horse Comics, but I’m a little backed up due to the Holiday (who isn’t?). The issue is from Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs and “executive producer” Joss Whedon.
