    Angel is caught facing an unrelenting Illyria of the past, an unrelenting Illyria of the future, and an impending volcanic eruption. For him to save an entire race of demons, satisfy both Illyrias, and get himself and Fred back to the future, he will have to convince at least one of the goddesses to trust someone other than themselves—specifically, him!

    This is the first part of Angel S11 that I enjoyed :eek:

    The cover art by Scott Fischer is gorgeous, with lots of green, red and orange.

    Angel persuades Illyria that she doesn't always have to use violence to solve her problems, and that she can use reason to communicate with her enemies. The positive result even surprises Angel.

    There's humour in this issue, which I don't think we've seen before in S11, with Illyria making a joke at Angel's expense, and it was actually funny.

    I really enjoyed the ending because we are finaly leaving Illyria's time and moving forward into Angel's timeline, where Darla is soon to make an appearance. Exciting! :)

    Should I bother reading the new comics? I read the first three issues and I hated them. Is the improvement really there?

    Agreed, the first three issues were awful but I am glad I stuck with it, because #4 was actually quite readable, being entertaining and funny. It's not perfect by any means, and I still have no idea where the story is going, or even why it's happening, but I will stick with it and hope it continues to improve. So yes, if you can afford to spend money on something you may not completely enjoy, then I would say stick with it, and let's both hope it gets better :)

    Then I will give the two recent issues a read then. At the least the covers are stunning!
