I told a few people in this thread that Angel: Masks is included in the Angel Volume 2 Omnibus, but I was reminded today that only some of the stories from that one shot are in the omnibus.

So if you truly want a complete collection, you have to track down the original Masks one shot. I knew that at one point since I went out of my way to buy the issue separately, but it slipped my mind when relaying it to others here. Just wanted to correct myself in case anyone is using my experiences as a guide.

So I was collecting the comics in the library editions, and have now been screwed by the fact that DH lost the licence and now the library editions will stop at Buffy season 10 - mostly causing an issue when Angel & Faith Season 10 only exists in TPBs.... But with that in mind, I've been trying to find the best reading order, and most of the reading orders I find seem to be centred around the TPBs. Can anyone confirm that I've got the right reading order here for the library editions?

Hey, I'm really sorry for taking so long. I should log on here more often.

I think you just need to change one aspect of Season 10, due to a character crossover. Basically the continuity goes (spoilers ahead): Buffy #15 (Someone calls Angel) > Angel #15 (Angel receives call) > Buffy #16-18 (Angel/Buffy team-up)/Angel #16-18 (Angel is gone for 3 issues) > Angel #19 (Angel returns)

Season 10
Buffy LE vol. 1 (#1-10)
A&F TPB vol. 1 (#1-5)
A&F TPB vol. 2 (#6-10)
A&F TPB vol. 3 (#11-15)
Buffy LE vol. 2 (#11-20)

A&F TPB vol. 4 (#16-20)
A&F TPB vol. 5 (#21-25)
Buffy LE vol. 3 (#21-30)

I think Season 11 is probably best read like that, but don't forget Season 12! It's just one trade.
