Angel is a celebrity, Kate from season 2 is back, and there are a
couple of new characters that don’t really matter. There’s an angel guy, and a
cat lady. But they don’t really matter. There is a great recap of the previous
issues at the beginning of the book that will catch you up to a point if you
need.





In Immortality for Dummies we get to see Connor not be a pussy for
once. He is out on a mission when he runs into some demons from the dimension
he came from. Some demon chicks show up and help him out, call him the chosen
one and then tell him they are offering him an army. This can’t possibly go wrong
right. I mean its Connor.





Anyway like I said everything is kinda back to status quo. The hangout
is the Hyperion and everyone is back, with some extras with the exception of
Wesley. Which is better than having him back for no reason at all like before.
It looks like there will be someone who will fill the whole that Wes left in
the group though.





The meat of the story lies in trying to get Angel back from this
corporation that is using Angel to turn celebs into vampires, and then restore
their souls. It wasn’t with evil intent, but I mean how could this not go
wrong.





The art here is pretty amazing. Every character looks just right, and
that coupled with the dialogue means that it was very easy to hear the
characters in my head as I was reading. Something I can’t say for any other
Buffy/Angel comic.







I don’t want to spoil anymore of the story, because it is clearly
setting up for something big down the line for Mr. Willingham. The art is
great, the story feels like an Angel story, and everything just seems to work.
Go ahead and give this a try even if you didn’t read/enjoy the previous arc. It
will be worth it.
