Angel (s9 or 11, your choice), Issue 09

"Dark Reflections" part I





Script: Corinna Bechko, Art: Geraldo Borges & 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 impending doom that is connected to his past, Angel is traveling through time with the help of Illyria, hoping that his thoughts will lead to a point in history that holds the key to solving the coming disaster. Recently shipwrecked on a volcanic island fending of[f] zombies with Angelus (!) and Darla -- and the situation having escalated past reason -- Illyria called for a volcanic eruption, and has taken herself, Darla, Angel and Angelus into the time portal...

Plagued by a vision of doom that is connected to his past, Angel has been traveling through time with the help of Illyria, hoping to prevent the coming disaster. Fred has lost faith in their ability to change the larger course of history and wants to return to the present, but Angel has been captured by the thought of how he might change his own past... With Illyria weakened from the stain on her powers, Angel forced the time portal to take them to a crucial point in his human past: 1753, Galway, Ireland.

Reviewing, and first world problems.

.

I'm so frickin' annoyed at my DVD player on my past-its-prime-but-still-working computer, making it really difficult to review all of the things I've wanted to review. I tried to find Buffy eps online that I could watch without downloading questionable software, or making a monetary investment. I don't feel like I'm stealing from Mutant Enemy or anything, because I've bought the DVDs... I just can't play 'em.

I have this vague plan on finally doing the next episode review from S2 of The Walking Dead, which is on Netflix: But then I binge Jessica Jones, The West Wing, Longmire or snag a gay movie, instead... so uh... can I just put that on Netflix, instead of me? 'K-thanx.

I could also do the next episode of Supernatural... am I still on S1 of that?! I need to check, but I fear that I really am.

And now, I would really, really like to review the MCU, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ... whose periods I am refusing to continue using - if I should actually make it to their reviews before I finally expire.

I should get the computer looked at... again... or finally just upgrade (though I fear learning Win10, when I'm so comfortable with XP)... but, ehhh... I'm lazy. And there really are more pressing issues to use that money for. And, I'm lazy... did I mention that?

Y'know, if y'all want to do the reviews for me...   Okay, maybe not.
