Now that the Fall is over, Illyria and Gunn are trying to get back on the straight and narrow. But having tasted their truly darker sides, is there any way to really come back from trying to end existence? Maybe a road trip will help. But visiting Fred's folks brings up more than just memories as The Scourge makes an appearance, along with an old enemy of Illyria's who's looking for a little payback. And it all hinges on whether Gunn and Illyria can settle their differences and learn to fight together.
"Angel: Only Human" Reviews
I enjoyed this. Call me a fanboi but I'll take and excuse to go back into the Buffyverse. Who wouldn't want to go on a road trip with Elder thing blue and Gunn?
I loved this volume definitely my favorite one of the Angel series so far. The storyline for Ilyria was amazing and had a great outcome. It was nice seeing her and Gunn together and working as a team.
I'm always skeptical as to whether an ultra-powerful god can team up with a human street-fighter. The imbalance makes it so awkward, but this managed to pull off the unwieldy Superman-Batman team-up.
Although I think I'm just about done with I'm-a-psychopath-but-I'm-trying-to-fit-in-with-normal-people-unless-someone-tries-to-kill-me, but maybe that comes from watching Dexter and reading about OOTS's Belkar.
Continuación de Tras la caída.
I wasn't sure if I should read this book or not, as if follows after the Angel: After the Fall storyline, and I never had a chance to read the second half of that story. However, once it arrived in the mail today, I simply couldn't resist and jumped in almost right away.
This is the story of Gunn and Illyria, after everything is over. They're both at crossroads within their lives and trying to find a role for themselves in this new present. Fred's parents call to tell her that there's been a death in the family, so Gunn and Illyria decide to go to the funeral--both of them looking for connection and escape.
The narrative moves smoothly between flashbacks to Gunn's childhood and Illyria's first incarnation and shows how that past informs who they are now and the choices they make. I'm not sure just how much of the plot of this episode changes them in their day-to-day lives afterward. However, it is a great short story that allows readers to see the ways in which each character is lost within themselves and seeking connection to others.
I loved this book.
And I still miss Fred.
Gunn and Illyria go on a road trip after 1) LA's return from Hell and 2) news that Fred (the human body the demon Illyria inhabits) uncle has died. While Illyria decides to explore what it is to be human (and apparently not caring very much about it) we get added info on both her and Gunn's past. An attempt is made here to give demons actual personalities and understanding of their motivation. While creator Joss Whedon has back away from this series because of recent online controversy over this series and Dark Horse's Buffy series, this installment, as has Brian Lynch's episodes, read close to a Whedon creation.
