Angel

Review Boom!Angel, issue 09

.

[Yes, I need to come up with a Boom!Angel icon for these reviews. I haven't gotten a cover I want to showcase, yet.]



Boom!Angel + Spike
Issue 09

Writer: Bryan Edward Hill, Artwork: Gleb Melnikov & Roman Titov, Lettering: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Vanesa R. Del Rey

My Blurb: Poor Angel: Once again, his title gets a co-billing co-star....





Page 01: We open in Downtown Los Angeles, where Angel has returned since his visit to Sunnydale's Hellmouth. In a car on a quiet street, is a boy in the passenger seat. Somebody tells the boy to slow down, or he'll make himself sick. Conversation reveals this is Dre, a kid on the streets and he's been giving a fast food meal by Kate Lockley. He asks after what Kate wants, as she only finds him when she needs something [presumably street info]. She denies she's there for anything other than pressing him to go to one of the places she's shared with him to get a bed and regular meals.

Best of / Worst of... Angel & Faith

.


Hello, my long-suffering, sweetheart readers.

As I am once again, kinda-back into the review game after an extended time away, I thought I should start taking a look at 'Best of/Worst of' again, too. So, here we are, about to sit in judgement of our characters in Dark Horse's Angel & Faith, S2 (or Angel, S8 - if you wish). Today we're looking at Issue 10.

It's been so long, so let me set the scene: Faith is with Kennedy's corporate venture, Deepscan. She's a bit ambivalent about it the structure of a employee-worklife interacting with her Slayerness, but she's sticking with it because Deepscan has a mission in the jungle-forests of Suriname to find some rich executive. Now, ordinarily this wouldn't be enough to make her stay, but there was a previous attempt to find this exec which included a now missing Riley Finn.

And Faith has some atonement to meet.

In the meantime, Angel is in 'Magic Town', London. He's in a bit of a jam, because powerful witch Amy Madison is pissed off that he refused her request for help in resurrecting her liquified boyfriend, Warren.

Night Stalker

Best Of/Worst of... Kolchak

.


Hello, my beautiful readers. In my effort to start getting back to actual, regular posting, I'm working my way through my Best Of/Worst Of Character Moments series. For this post, we're taking a look back the last Kolchak: The Night Stalker review I've got up, "The Vampire", to see where our hero stands tall - and where he doesn't.


But is Carl the only main player this time out: Kolchak, Tony Vincenzo, Faye Kruger, Lt. Jack Mateo will round out our main players.

Best of/Worst of ... Steve Austin

.


Yay, another post! And we're still continuing with my rash of Best of/Worst of Character Moments.

This post is all about Steve Austin's third telefilm, "The Solid Gold Kidnapping". Which, I could've sworn I already did at some point. But, well... that'll be embarassing, I guess.


Our Main Players will be: Steve Austin, Oscar Goldman, Dr. Erica Bergner, Ambassador William. Cameron. Mitchell.
