Angel (Dark Horse’s S11)
Season 09, Issue 03





Out of the Past”, part III

Writer: Corinna Bechko, Artwork: Geraldo Borges, Colors: Michelle Madsen, Letters: Richard Starkings, [Comicraft’s] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Scott Fischer

Blurb: When young Liam was turned into a vampire, he became exceptionally bad. Under the name Angelus, for hundreds of years he reveled in killing and left horror in his wake. In 1898, he received his comeuppance through a gypsy curse that returned to him his soul and his conscience. Now known as Angel, he has been trying to make up ever since for all that he did as a soulless, evil monster.

Winifred “Fred” Burkle is a brilliant and quirky physicist who has been through her own series of mystical events and works with her friend Angel to make the world safer. Fred shares her body with an Old One, a goddess named Illyria; it’s weird, but it seems to be working out.

Plagued by a vision of doom that is connected to his past, Angel has been transported back in time by Illyria - by accident - to an ancient period when Illyria ruled. Angel and Fred find themselves trying to prevent a disaster in this time, caught between two Illyrias and an invading demon…
Angel caught between battling gods and a desperate humanoid Illyria.Collapse )

Jeezus godling, this past week...!

Last Sunday afternoon, I had to call an ambulance and by the time they arrived, I was on the ground just able to barely breathe due to a horrendous, burning pain in my upper abdomen. It turned out to be a out-of-left-field case of pancreatitis. I was admitted to the hospital for 4 days - being flushed with IV fluid (and I mean flushed... I never had an empty bag, and my abdomen was so painfully distended, I was sure that I was about to explode). And pain meds and wondering how anything could burn this badly and not be lava-related.

Season 9 (or 11), Issue 02





Out of the Past”, part II

Script: Corinna Bechko, Art: Geraldo Borges, Coloring: Michelle Madsen, Letters: Richard Starkings & [Comicraft’s] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Scott Fischer

Blurb: When young was turned into a vampire, he became incredibly good at being exceptionally bad. Under the name Angelus, for hundreds of years he reveled in killing and left horror in his wake. In 1898, he received his comeuppance through a gypsy curse that returned to him his soul and his conscience. Now known as Angel, he has been trying to make up ever since for all that he did as a soulless, evil monster.

Among Angel’s friends is Winifred “Fred” Burkle, a brilliant and quirky physicist who has been through her own series of mystical events and works with Angel to make the world safer. Fred shares her body with an Old One, a goddess named Illyria; it’s weird, but seems to be working out.

Having been plagued by a vision of impending doom that is somehow connected to his past, Angel was reluctantly working with Fred to decipher the prophecy when they were interrupted by Illryia, who impulsively transported them into the past…

Angel and Fred end up stuck in the wrong past!Collapse )

Not dead, yet. Not so poor to have lost internet connectivity, yet. House hasn't caved in under its structural issue, yet.

There will be reviews later this week. I have a long weekend, and on Thurs. and Friday, I will be posting the two issues each of BTVS & Angel. My determination is strong for the first time in quite a while. It will be done.

Yes, my life remains in a toilet bowl that hasn't been cleaned in a while, but: DETERMINATION.

I plan on at least getting through the first 20 min of Supernatural, that I've had on my review docket for about a century, now. I would like to post it by Sunday but that sounds like setting myself up for a fail.

But, those comic reviews will be frickin' done (assuming there isn't a power failure, the house does collapse, or I have a convenient aneurysm, of course).

Marching on -- doesn't mean I have to like it.

Right now, Angel and Fred are visiting Ireland to perform a small exorcism...

It is probably better if Angel just stays out of Ireland.Collapse )

Still traumatized, but I've managed to finally... FINALLY... watch Season 07, Episode 02. It wasn't a Negan episode, so it was a much easier ride than I expected. The rest are still waiting on the DVR, and I've avoided spoilers like they have cooties. I'm still frightened/sickened at the thought of continuing after "The Day Will Come When You Won't Be", which was just too much to enjoy watching... especially Negan's quips while generating the most raw gore the show's had, and using Glenn and Abe to do it.

Yeah. Just too much.

But I gotta catch up before the DVR fills, don't I? Don't I need to continue?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 11 Issue 02
"In Time of Crisis"

Writer: Christos Gage, Art: Rebekah Isaacs, Color: Dan Jackson, Lettering: Richard Starkings & [Comicraft's] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Steve Morris




Blurb: Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been saving the world from demons and the forces of darkness on a regular basis since she was a teenager. Alongside her vampire boyfriend Spike; her best friends, Wiccan Willow Rosenberg and normal guy Xander Harris; her sister Dawn; and her formerly old but now magically reborn as a thirteen-year-old mentor Giles, Buffy has found nothing they can't face together... But the world hasn't stopped throwing new challenges their way.

An ancient god of storms, the Shenlong dragon, attacked San Francisco with a massive tsunami. Buffy and friends drove it away, but much of the city was leveled, and thousands died.

Supernatural (no, not the show) backlash sweeps the U.S.Collapse )
