They wanted Faith to cross over to BtVS in Season 11 but did not want Angel to get involved. I guess they didn’t want two titles focused on the same crisis? So Joss & co. decided to send Angel on a time travel road trip.When/why did they do that? I thought many spoke positive of that?

They had already moved the writer and artist who made A&F S9 so good over to BtVS anyway. I still liked A&F 10 but it wasn’t as good (though I loved the main artist).
I can’t vote in the poll because I’ve read the comics but neither love nor hate them.
I agree that Dracula is fantastic in the comics, especially when we get to see his as he really is. I love his relationship with Xander and his 'Peter Lorre' butler (I've forgotten his name!)Comics and television are quite different viewing experiences so it takes quite a jump to get into the new format. It's definitely a shift and I wasn't overwhelmed with season 8 initially, but the comics have become very dear to me over time.
There are even some things that worked better for me in the comics than the series. An example of this is Dracula; I really didn't like the Dracula episode in season 5 and so I wasn't exited to see him return in the comics at first but they play his on his campiness well. He's a delightful mix of deadly and ridiculous.
