    As the steam clears from Angel's confrontation with the goddess Illyria, the trio find themselves back in the present where their time-traveling adventure began. Angel, Fred, and Illyria are finally ready to face what waits for them--as long as they all can let go of the past . . .

    * The penultimate issue of Angel Season 11!¨

    I had really low expectations for this issue, so it was a little better than I was expecting! That "Farewell, Angel" was interesting and makes me wonder what will happen with Illyria in the next issue. This was funny:

    Nothing like some thruple theatrics! :) But they only have one issue left to actually do anything with this interesting wrench they threw in the works, so my expectations are also going to be very low going into #12.

    ETA: Forgot to mention that Freddye Miller says in the letters col that no announcements about a Season 12 will be coming soon, and she didn't have an update about the Season 10 library editions either.

    No, we don’t even really know what happened yet beyond the kiss.

    I think it’s just the angle. He looks “normal” elsewhere.

    Unless that triangle under her head is actually nose, not her throat and it's just the high angle the artist has chosen...

    But this dialogue is truly terrible. Doesn't sound remotely like Illyria.
     
    Grace: I think you are right about the nose! And the dialogue of course.

    I can’t get this to load, I pre-purchased it but it won’t download for some reason prob cause the internet sucks here. Ugh I’m annoyed! But it sounds like I didn’t miss much.

    Is that “farewell Angel” the last page? Is that the cliff hanger we don’t know what Illyria is doing?

    No, that page is in the middle. Illyria goes hiding inside of Fred and won't come back out to do any fighting. I'm not sure what's going to happen with her, though.

    Here's the last page:

    Thanks for posting all these pages @Grace. I haven't received my copy yet, and I love to be spoiled. I wonder if Illyria hasn't got a face because she doesn't know who she is. Fred's face is always well drawn with every feature very obvious, she is Fred, whereas Illyria is confused about who she is now, she is both herself and Fred and is changing throughout this season as she has changed her own past, so her face (or lack of) is reflective of those changes have made to her personality.

    I'm sure I've missed something, but how is Fred seeing Angel in a mirror? Are they in a different dimension? Has Illyria done something to him?

    What?! I can't believe I didn't notice that. I hope it has some kind of relevance to the final plot line and not a mistake.

    @TriBel pointed it out to me. This could be huge for Angel and no-one has mentioned it :D But it could also mean he's just not in his real dimension and nothing has actually changed . . . or it could mean he's shanshued or Illyria has made him human . . . or as you say, just a mistake. If it is a mistake I will be really annoyed :mad:

    have you seen either the original hard-copy of the comic or a download? I saw this online - I'm presuming it's not a spoof?
     
    Grace: Definitely came in my subscription download from Dark Horse through Comixology.

    The last four issues are four parts of a story titled Dark Reflections, so I guess that fits.

    If it is a mistake that would be a huge mistake, it's a whole panel!
    It's weird, I never even think Angel might have been shanshued, it's like that possibility has been present in the background for so long that it feels as if it would an anticlimactic if he got it now.
    I think it's more interesting if they aren't actually in 'their' version of Ireland, or they've changed the very nature of the world through their time-wandering antics.
    I read a digital version and I don't actually remember this page so I wouldn't know.
