After a trying, emotional battle, Angel and Faith return home to find a couple of guests waiting for them. They are quickly acquainted with Lavinia and Sophronia (Sophie for short), Giles’ Great Aunts. They seem to be well versed in magic…and trouble. Their visit is not just for the free wine and accommodations, they seem to have brought along some guests that Angel and Faith must eradicate. They have an obsession with staying young and this is the real source of their problems; however, they blame Angel for the loss of magic in the world, therefore they blame him for all of their problems and they expect him to clean up their mess. Once it appears the coast is clear, Angel and Faith begin pumping Lavinia and Sophie for Giles’ family history/drama. Here we get to see Giles as a young boy, we learn how his magical powers were discovered, what his childhood dreams were and how those dreams were crushed. Just when Lavinia and Sophie seem useless, they give Angel something that may help him bring Giles back but manipulation is in play and their end game is still unknown!

Any issue that has a Giles origin story is fine by me. I love learning more about him and we also get to see what I’m assuming is the first use of the nickname “Ripper” and it won’t be at all what anyone expected! As an added bonus the issue ends with a surprise guest which will undoubtedly be an awesome addition to the story. Angel & Faith #10 has a lot of funny dialog which doesn’t detract from some of the seriousness of the issue. The introduction of the Great Aunts fits right in and is a great way to present Giles’ back story. Based on some of what happened in the issue, Angel and Faith’s relationship may be getting a bit more tenuous in the near future, but I think with everything they have been through it will be a minor bump in the road. The art is great; I love the variations in the monsters that come calling for Lavinia and Sophie. The bottom line is that this is a very strong issue and a great addition to the continuing story line!

Greetings, Scoobies! Out of the shadows the Comic Book Slayer steps once more to bring you an advance review of the latest issue of Angel & Faith. Regular artist Rebekah Isaacs only provides the alternate cover, sitting this issue out and allowing artist Chris Samnee to step in and take a swing. After wrapping up a heavy arc in the last issue, writer Christos Gage gives us a lighter tale this time that still pushes the story forward and introduces several new elements.


MINOR SPOILERS BELOW


http://www.whedonopolis.com/mediagallery/mediaobjects/tn/b/b_angelandfaith10alt.jpg

The Good:

A spoon full of humor helps the brooding gloom go down. As much as I am a fan of the brooding with extra darkness, it is nice to take a break from the drama and have a lighter issue. Gage handles the humor well, never relying on tired jokes and never straying too far into farce. Samnee’s art really helps with this effect by easily alternating between epic and cartoonish from panel to panel.

Living beyond your means - Buffy-style. This issue introduces us to Lavinia and Sophronia, Gile’s shallow and magic-obsessed great aunts. Both Lavinia and Sophronia have been living the high life by staying young and beautiful with magic that they acquire through rigged deals that they never expect to pay. They’re playing the system, and they have to pay the piper now that the Seed has been shattered and magic has left this plane. It’s an interesting metaphor for those who have lived beyond their means and now find themselves scrambling to avoid the consequences of their debt. I’ll expand further on this idea in my full review that will be posted on Thursday on www.fanboycomics.net.

The arrival of an old friend. There’s big ending here. Most of you probably already know what’s coming, but for the spoiler-free, big things are coming and they start on the last page of Angel & Faith #10.


The Bad:

Chris Samnee has big shoes to fill. While I personally really love Chris Samnee’s art and love when they have an opportunity for a guest artist, I feel like Rebekah Isaacs work has been so on par lately that many will notice the absence and will be eager for the return. Hopefully, Samnee won’t get trapped in her shadow, but, on the positive side, it is good news for Isaacs.

That’s all for now, Scoobies! If you want to read my full, spoilerific review, it will be posted on Thursday over at www.fanboycomics.net!
